RAM File Extension

RAM files Format

The RAM file type is primarily associated with 'RealMedia' by RealNetworks, Inc. It is the basic means for launching a clip or a simple sequence of clips that plays in RealOne Player. You can also use the Ram file to open an HTML page in the media browser or related info pane.

The first version of RealAudio used a proprietary protocol called PNA or PNM to send streaming audio data. RealNetworks later switched to the IETF standardized Real Time Streaming Protocol (RTSP) but they use RTSP only to manage the connection. The actual audio data is sent with their own proprietary RDT protocol, which they initially kept secret. Recently, some specifications for the RDT protocol have been made public through the Helix Community project. The open-source MPlayer project eventually developed a means of playing the RDT streams. Here also recommend Audio Converter and Audio Converter for Mac to help you convert AMR to MP3 etc.
