Just a quick question..? I wonder about "real media". IIRC this is a
streaming format that must be served from a webserver with some
special capabilities? I don't know. That's why I mention it.

I don't have any realplayer or anything, but I do use wget to get
OGG files. Now, I can also "stream play" the same OGG files with
xmms except when they are too big for my connection bandwidth. Anyway,
I'll look at the URL you point out. If nothing else... It would be
interesting reading.
