    A new version of RealPlayer has been released, RealPlayer 10.
    After installing RealPlayer 10, StreamBox Ripper will no longer be able to convert files.

    StreamBox Ripper may show this error message.

    Decoding of the file requires external codec.
    Please download & install G2 Player (www.real.com)

    codec info (cook)

    StreamBox Ripper needs the codec cook3260.dll Cooker G2 Audio Codec for RealAudio(tm) (32-bit).

    Previous versions of RealPlayer or RealOne Player had this codec.
    RealPlayer 10 also has this codec, but it is named cook.dll so StreamBox Ripper cannot find it.

    Solution.
    Open folder.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Codecs
    Right click on cook.dll and select Copy.
    Then right click in that same folder and select Paste.
    You will then have a file named Copy of cook.dll
    Right click on Copy of cook.dll and select Rename.
    Rename the file cook3260.dll
    You will then have this codec named both ways.
    cook.dll This is the one that RealPlayer 10 will use.
    cook3260.dll This is the one that StreamBox Ripper will use to convert files to .mp3, .wav, .wma.

    StreamBox Ripper may also show this error message.

    codec info (sipr)

    StreamBox Ripper needs the codec sipr3260.dll ACELP-NET Voice Codec for RealAudio(tm).

    Previous versions of RealPlayer or RealOne Player had this codec.
    RealPlayer 10 also has this codec, but it is named sipr.dll so StreamBox Ripper cannot find it.

    Solution.
    Open folder.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Codecs
    Right click on sipr.dll and select Copy.
    Then right click in that same folder and select Paste.
    You will then have a file named Copy of sipr.dll
    Right click on Copy of sipr.dll and select Rename.
    Rename the file sipr3260.dll
    You will then have this codec named both ways.
    sipr.dll This is the one that RealPlayer 10 will use.
    sipr3260.dll This is the one that StreamBox Ripper will use to convert files to .mp3, .wav, .wma.

    Do not drag a file that needs this codec to StreamBox Ripper or try to play the file after it is loaded as it will crash. You can Load and Convert the file as long as it is not played.

    codec info (atrc)

    StreamBox Ripper needs the codec atrc3260.dll RealNetworks Sony ATRAC3 Audio Codec.

    Previous versions of RealPlayer or RealOne Player had this codec.
    RealPlayer 10 also has this codec, but it is named atrc.dll so StreamBox Ripper cannot find it.

    Solution.
    Open folder.
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Codecs
    Right click on atrc.dll and select Copy.
    Then right click in that same folder and select Paste.
    You will then have a file named Copy of atrc.dll
    Right click on Copy of atrc.dll and select Rename.
    Rename the file atrc3260.dll
    You will then have this codec named both ways.
    atrc.dll This is the one that RealPlayer 10 will use.
    atrc3260.dll This is the one that StreamBox Ripper will use to convert files to .mp3, .wav, .wma.

    There have been reports that having the atrc3260.dll codec works in some cases and doesn't work in other cases when StreamBox Ripper is used with RealPlayer 10. The best that can be said is that it doesn't hurt to have the codec available for Streambox Ripper to use and it may or may not work in all cases.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you get an error message like those above that give a different codec info name, try to find that codec in the same way and try adding 3260 to it. And leave a message here.

    If anyone has other NEW problems using StreamBox Ripper with RealPlayer 10, please reply and let me know.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    There have been several different versions of StreamBox Ripper. Some versions support Real Audio/Media conversion and others do not.

    These versions support Real Audio/Media conversion.
    Ra2Wav v2.003
    StreamBox Ripper v2.007
    StreamBox Ripper v2.009

    These versions do not support Real Audio/Media conversion.
    StreamBox Ripper v2.010
    StreamBox Ripper v2.011

    To get a version of StreamBox Ripper that supports Real Audio/Media conversion, I recommend.

    StreamBox VCR Suite 2.0. (Free)
    http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_capture_tools/streambox_vcr_suite.cfm
    This suite contains versions of StreamBox VCR to download most Real Media streams and many Windows Media streams. It also contains StreamBox Ripper v2.009 which can convert most Real Media files(.ra .rm)to MP3 WAV or WMA.

    StreamBox Ripper v2.009 (Free). Part of StreamBox VCR Suite 2.0.
    This is a free converter and is very fast. It will work with all versions of RealPlayer up to RealOne. If you want to use it with RealPlayer 10, you need to copy and rename some codec .dll files as shown above.
    It will not work with Real Audio files that use the Real Audio 10 codec.

    Another Note:
    If you receive a wmaudsdk.dll error when trying to run Streambox Ripper, you need to install the Windows Media codec support pack, wmaudioredist.exe, located in the StreamboxRipper2009 directory.
