How do I stream Real Audio and Video files?

1) Upload your Real Audio and Video files to the server, using a FTP program or the file manager(files with the .rm and ra extensions). Make sure the files are uploaded in binary mode. 
2) Create a metafile (ASCII text file) containing a URL to one of your Real Audio and Video files. Example: 

http://www.hostgo.com/media/hello.ra

3) Save the above metafile as a text file, using a text editor like Notepad, with the .ram extension.

Example: "hello.ram"

Upload the metafile to your web site, using a FTP program or the file manager. Make sure the file is uploaded in ASCII mode.

4. In your HTML document, reference the metafile in a hyperlink. Example:

<a href="media/hello.ram">Click to hear my melody!

When a visitor clicks on the metafile link, the media file will immediately start streaming on their computer.
