Re: [RedHotJazz] RedHotJazz in Ubuntu
- Don't know about different operating systems, but I have good luck with
something called Real Alternative which is a Real player without any annoying
ads or pop-ups. Works well on Windows.
Just google Real Alternative and install their free media player.

Subject: [RedHotJazz] RedHotJazz in Ubuntu
Haven't been here for quite a while. I got some good advice here back then
about playing the .ram files at Scott Alexander's incredible Red Hot Jazz
Archive via my Linux (Ubuntu 10.04 (lucid) OS.
At the time I was (and since have been, using subsequent Ubuntu releases) able
to play the .rams with Mozilla Mplayer and RealPlayer 8 (Legacy).
Now I seem to be S.O.L. Mozilla Mplayer seems to be a thing of the past and
RealPlayer 8 doesn't work.
Can anyone offer any suggestions?
Thanks in Advance,

- What you need is real player 8 for linux that supports the old format and it will play most of the redhotjazz.com files as I recall if nothing changed since then. The installer file was rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs1.bin thats what I had long ago and probably it can be found somewhere on the net, and maybe you'll need old libraries to install it or something. I don't know whether it is installable on modern ubuntu in a strict way, maybe the ubuntu itself has realplayer8 extention but somehow the 11 don't support older versions. I used the real player 8 on other than ubuntu linux distributions and I don't know what the situation for ubuntu I only know the 8 worked for me back then.
