I ESCAPED AMY FISHER (CALIFORNIA DREAM TV)
LISTEN ONLINE OR DOWNLOAD AND KEEP
- If there are any problems with streaming audio (interrupted play etc.), use the next smaller version or best the download option.
- You dont need to have ISDN to download the ISDN Stereo Version. But with a 28.8 Modem the song will be interrupted every 20 seconds because Real Audio needs more time to download and buffer the information to continue playing. It is recommended to use the 28.8Mono file to prelisten and download the best quality file then to your disk. More help? Click on 'help' on the right. Do not worry when you have only a 14.4 modem. Use the download option. Your modem limit affects only what you can listen as 'streaming' audio (listen while loading). Once the file is downloaded completely to your disk, you can listen to any version.
You are free to listen and to download all files.
But please take a look at the onlovestar.com share program to make new recordings possible.

How does RealAudio work and what is the required equipment?
Software requirements: The
software you need to play this file is the Real Audio Player or Real Media
Player. The required version is 3.0 or higher. The most recent version
is 5.0. This player is a recommended Plug In for your Netscape Browser
or Internet Browser and is used all over the world to compress audio files.
This is necessary because an uncompressed file (that features better quality
of cause) for a 4:15 stereo song is about 45 MB. The Real Audio file in
Mono only 0.5 MB. It would take you more than 3 hours to download the original
file (and only if no error occurs). A reduced RealAudio file depending
on the grade of the compression is sized only 260 KB to 2,4 MB. But it
has to be remarked that the size of the file determines the quality of
the sound. It reaches from about AM-quality to something near HIFI Stereo.
Hardware requirements: A
basic sound card or audio card like Soundblaster16 is a sufficient device
in combination with speakers, headphones or a cable to your HIFI Amplifier.
If you can play any other sound files you will be able to play this one
1) weird data or only the text "pnm://www.rz.uni-frankfurt.de/..." is displayed by your browser? Check if RealAudio Player or (RealMedia Player) is installed at all. If yes, check your browsers (Netscape/Microsoft Internet Explorer) options/preferences: files with the extensions "*.ra", "*.ram", "*.rm" should be started/handeled by the RealAudio Player.
2) option 'Listen to ...': It can happen Netscape (or the Internet-Explorer) does not start the RealAudio Player but offers to save the file to disk instead. Then you should save the file to disk with the extension "*.ra", "*.rm" or "*.ram" and start it from your Windows-Explorer. Another possibility is: Check on Options/Preferences of your browser, change file handling for those extensions from save to disk to open with RealAudio Player.
x) A general alternative to starting the file by the browser is to start the Real Audio Player from your Desktop or your Windows-Explorer before downloading and Open the URL of the song: In this example it means Open URL: <TAKE ADRESS FROM DOWNLOAD SECTION. YOU CAN READ IT IN THE STATUS LINE WHEN YOUR MOUSE IS OVER THE LINK>. This option also allows you to influence the buffer management: It depends on how your presettings in "View""Preferences""General""Buffer" are set, whether your PC starts to play immediately or after a certain time of downloading. The right presetting depends on how fast the Internet access is. If the song is interrupted while playing you will have to increase the buffer value. Anyway you can prelisten with a small buffer value, then wait until the complete song is downloaded and listen again. This buffer management makes it possible to download ISDN-files as well with a 28.8 modem. It only takes a little longer until the song can be listened to in full length.
y) A further explaination: For each soundfile two RealAudio files exist: The first has the extension "*.ra". This is the real sound file to get played by the RealAudio player. The other file has the extension "*.ram". This file only delivers non-audio information your RealAudio player needs in case the first file has not been (temporarily) stored on your hard disk.
