Can’t find a proper program to open RAM files? This article will introduce the best RAM player and show you how to play .ram files with it. Meanwhile, this article shares another effective way to solve the RAM file playback problem by conversion. You can install it here in advance and get more information in the following post:

What is a .ram File

Q: I have some files with .ram extensions. I’d like to convert them into a common format like MP3 so that I can play them on my devices. Now I have Audacity 2.3.1 on Windows 10 yet I am not sure whether Audacity can do this. Or is there a simple way to convert .ram files?

A: A RAM file is a Real Audio metadata file that simply contains URLs to one or more RealAudio or RealMedia streams that exist on an Internet server. It will direct the media player to the actual location of the music or video clip on the Internet. Since RAM files are text files without any actual audio or video data, it is not possible to directly convert RAM files to MP3. If you want to open RAM files, using a specific RAM file player is the best way to do it. The following part will show you how to play .ram files with the best RAM player.

The Best RAM Player to Play RAM Files

In the review of the best RMVB players, we have mentioned that RealPlayer is the best choice since RMVB files are created for RealPlayer, the media player produced by RealMedia. Similarly, RAM file is primarily associated with RealMedia so RealPlayer is surely the best RAM player. You can install it here:

After you install RealPlayer on your computer, it will associate with the RAM files automatically so you only need to double-click each RAM file to play them. Or right-click on the RAM file you want to play and select Open with > RealPlayer.

If you fail to play a RAM file with the RAM file player, it suggests that the RealAudio or RealMedia streams are not valid anymore. In such cases, there's no way round this problem.

When you play RAM files with RealPlayer, you can click on the round button next to Play/Pause for recording while streaming files.

Is It Possible to Convert RAM Files to MP3 or MP4?

Besides using a RAM player to open .ram files, some people also want to convert them with a free video converter. As we mentioned before, since RAM is a text-based file, third-party video/audio converters can’t handle the conversion. However, there is one exception. Some .ra or .rm files containing video and audio data have been renamed to .ram and the RAM files can be converted to other digital files. To convert such RAM files, you might as well use WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory. This tool can convert almost all video and audio files to 300+ codecs, formats and profiles for devices and it has a user-friendly and well-organized interface.  Now, free download the powerful converter and follow the instructions below.
