It was a prime example of one of those "I wish I had mod points!" comments.
I implore any of you wacky enough to be paying attention to my journal that stumble across this to give up some + mod points for globaljustin's comment...please?

Literal (babel fish) translation, but it seems to equate to our 'shit or get off of the pot',. 'just do it!', or better yet, 'why are you fucking around when there is serious shit to deal with?'

"Re:Oh good, RealPlayer

The Realplayer format is actually pretty decent compression wise. Of course, you should never use the standard realplayer viewing software for this. The best method I know uses MPlayer:
1) Open a terminal and type the following:
mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile dirk.ra rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/comedy/wed1830.ra
2) Wait about 30 seconds, then open another terminal and play the file dirk.ra from disk while it's still downloading:
This has two benefits: you can put the stream in your collection (maybe convert to ogg later etc), and you won't get the annoying buffering pauses.
This method also works with realvideo files, and wmv urls (mms://) if you want to save those types of movies. Finally, note that MPlayer lets you skip around an audio or video file, even if the file says you can't fast forward in other GUI oriented video players."
