What is a ra file?

An RA (RealAudio) file is a proprietary audio file format released by RealNetworks. RA files were designed to play on RealPlayer, as well as a number of independently-developed RA players. RA files can contain both high- and low-quality audio, since they use a variety of codecs; this accommodates audiences with slower internet connections, who may prefer smaller files sizes. RA files are capable of streaming audio, that is, the file can play even as it is being downloaded. Until recently, RA files were a popular format for Internet radio stations, but that status is being eclipsed by a recent crop of newer audio format choices.  Other examples of music files are MP3 and AAC.
