    I see on a homework question, a file in *.ram format is referenced. I am reluctant to download Real Player because of previous spyware issues and having to jump through several hoops to shut off options in the configuration. Are there any generic players recommended, that can handle this format for Mac.

    System: using a borrowed Power Mac G5 running OS X "panther".

    There's jetAudio which is my favorite player for both audio and video and it can play real player's files, but i don't think there's a version for Mac. I also dislike Real Player very much.

    Thanks for suggestion, upon reading about JetAudio they confirm that they do not have a Mac or Linux version. I will keep this one in mind when I use PCs that do have Windows OS.

    I wouldn't worry about spyware on OS X there isn't any (yet), so there shouldn't be a problem using real player for mac.

    The new version of the real player stripped out the adware. I think you'll be safe.
