Who took over real? I heard real is really a dying format. I liked the
liquidaudio thing when it was around. Their DRM model was nice to in that
you had a passport that you could copy anywhere but it had your credit card
info in it so people wouldn't pirate them. I had a Billy Ray Cyrus album I
bought there that is good no longer because of their demise.

I don't much like the newest version of Real player. to get in to the "my
library" section, you press alt+v for view then you press the l key for "my
library". What used to happen was that you got taken to the "my library
section from which you could navigate to anything you wanted to hear;
including your purchased music from the Real 10 Music store. Now, though,
what happens when you do the alt+v for view and l for "my library" is that
this web page opens up and all you can see is something which says, "click
here to find out more". There's no links or other navigation on this page
and you have to use the Jaws curser for absolutely everything here. I wrote
to the accessibility department of Real Networks about this; but, they
haven't even bothered to answer me. Ever since the take over of Real
Networks, they have never bothered to even reply to my messages with an
apology or anything. before they got taken over, they used to be good at
responding. As for the Real alternative, I don't think it allows you to
access the music store at all nor the library section.

Hi, Marsha here. If any of you have worked with the realnetworks.com music
store, I purchased an album. They tell me to go to My Library or something
like that to play this. I assume it is in the Library music store or
something like that. They tell you to click the My Library side bar or
something like that and I don't seem to know where that is. I have also
heard of Real Alternative. Can anyone guide me to this and anything about
how to use it?

Subject: [bct] Re: Help for DVD audio extractor
In hopes of helping someone else out, regarding using DVD audio extractor from beginning to end here's a written tutorial but an audio tutorialAudiobe much, much better.
1. To insure we're all on the same page, start at the desktop with all programs closed. 2. place your DVD in your computer's disk drive and make sure it doesn't launch any software to play it automatically. 3. under start menu then programs up arrow to or find your way to DVDyouExtractor and hit enter. 4. hit enter on the DVD Audio Extractor option. I should also note thatthecan find the help files under this submenu, and the help files are incredibly accessible. You can read the help files as easily as readinglikejaws help files with the f6 key. 5. when DVD Audio extractor launches, if you're computer is configuredsuremine, you should hear your CD drive start spinning. 6. Tab through the very accessible prompts, and after about 3 tabs makeeditthe correct drive your DVD is in is highlighted--it should be by default.
7. Here's the tricky part. tab until you hear something like: "title 02
along with a time stamp of somekind. down arrow to select a title then hit
enter. At this point tab once and the title you selected will be in anfield alerting you to the fact that it has been chosen. Prior to selectingyou've
any title this edit field would have been clear conveying to you thatnot selected any title at all. Here's the key to this. Turn on the JTP(jawsto pc) and read from the top of the page down about 3 lines. You shouldcomeendingacross text that says: "Select all chapters." Left click on that icon to execute the select all command. This is important because rather thanup with one chapter of the DVD selected, you will select the whole DVD as1complete file--cool, cool, cool!! Tab to Next and hit enter. Don't screwupcompressedand hit enter on next chapter--it has to be the "next" option.
8. You will now be taken to a dialogue where you can make modifications to
the audio output of the file including selecting your file to beselectioninto .MP3, .ogg and others. You can also select the type of audio quality such as mono, stereo, and I believe 5.1 surround sound. Make yourfindthen tab and hit enter on next. 9. This is also important: tab through these choices and make sure youthe "output location" edit field where you can specify where you want youryour
files to go. I would create and choose a folder that is easy to find onhard drive such as C:\Rips.selections.
10. Tab to the checkbox that says: Split tracks by chapters checkbox
unchecked," and leave it alone. If it is checked pres spacebar to uncheck.
tab to Next and hit enter.
11. This is the last step. Tab through the choices and make yourminutes.Hit enter on start to begin the process.
General comments: I'm running the free unregistered download without a single problem-see links below. I ripped the audio from a DVD totaling 2.5 hours in 54I was able to use my computer just fine until about half ways through theI
audio rip then my computer started slowing down a little so I stopped whatwas doing to let it finish doing its thing and all went well. You can useis
your JTP to read the progress. The 2.5 hour DVD came out to a 147 meg .ogg
file. I compared the newly created audio file with the original and therecostsno significant loss of quality if any at all, but I've not cranked up my computer to run a thorough quality assessment. Besides the JTP selection quirk this is a very, very accessible piece of software. This software$30 and it is very well worth it. I've not heard the final ogg file yet sothe
don't know if there are any computer clicks or static in the file. I can't
emphasize enough how important it is to know exactly where your completed
file will end up. I lost the same exact copy of this file in my computerfirst time I tried this software successfully. Looks like this softwarewillthisdefinitely make my commute seem much shorter while catching up on all my favorite entertainment.
This link will take you to the website where you can download a 30 day trial: http://www.castudio.org/index.php
This link will take you to a tutorial page where you can read up on how to
make a good .ogg audio rip of your DVD.
Big thanks to John Schucker for being the first person to turn me on toOnsoftware.
