Why wouldn't you archive the files in a common music format like MP3 and let the user use whatever player he or she likes to play the music. I lean towards iTunes myself...

This would solve the problem of having to produce some horribly ugly kludge to try to force Real Player to play the song. You won't find a reliable way to do this anyway. MP3 is also a highly compressed format, so you'll save on disk space and bandwidth usage on your web site. Finally, if you decide it would be a useful feature, you could work on installing software to stream the MP3s.

Good luck.

Well, the cheap way is to just set up a link to the .RM files you have (or .RAM files). Point the link to the file. Then, when a website user clicks the link, the file will start to load, and the file association on the user system will open the file in RealAudio player.
Now, a better way would be to set up a streaming RealAudio server. The lastest version is the Helix Universal Server. Go here for info:

hope this helps
