Real Media, why won't it stream?

    Hi, I just uploaded a WMA file and an RM file to my site. The WMA one streams fine when I click it, but the RM file downloads the entire 6mb first before it plays. Anyone know why this might be? Is there a box somewhere in Real Producer that you have to tick to allow it to stream? I've read through all the help sections and can't find it. I don't want to broadcast live, this is on demand stuff.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    I figured it out, in case anyone else had the same problem. Don't ask me why, but you have to do this:
    1. Open notepad
    2. Write http://www.whatever.song/blah.rm
    3. Save the document as whateversong.ram
    4. Upload to same folder as the .rm file
    5. Make the link to the.ram file, not the .rm

    This is weird, but it works.
