I want to listen to an audio file on this BBC French language learning site.
However, the problem is that the audio file is a .ram file and from experience I don't want to install the Real Audio Player on my computer since it acts as adware, continually pops up, and is difficult to remove.
When I click on the .ram link, it asks me if I want to play it in my VLC media player, which attempts it but doesn't actually play or advance the play bar:
The Windows Media Player attempts to change the format then fails:
And Winamp does the same as VLC, actually opens it and pretends to play it but doesn't advance the play bar:
How can I play this .ram audio file without installing Real Audio Player?
