.rmm - RAM Metafile

The RMM multimedia files are related to Real Player. The RMM file is a RAM Metafile. Metafiles are text files which contain the URL location of a RealAudio file. Remember that RealAudio files cannot be referenced directly by the Web page because this would cause them to be downloaded in their entirety before playback. In order for the audio files to be played in real time, they must be played through a RealAudio Player, and served by a RealAudio Server. Therefore there must be a link between the Web server and the RealAudio Server. The link is contained in the metafile.

Can't open a .ram file?

When you double-click a file to open it, Windows examines the filename extension. If Windows recognizes the filename extension, it opens the file in the program that is associated with that filename extension. When Windows does not recognize a filename extension, you receive the following message:

Windows can't open this file:


To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it. Windows can go online to look it up automatically, or you can manually select one from a list of programs that are installed on your computer.

To avoid this error, you need to set the file association correctly.
