As scores for piano compositions and works for small chamber and choral ensembles become available, they may be downloaded and performed, but they may not be sold or distributed. The composer requests that he be notified of any scheduled performances.
Audio files are provided in streaming Hi-Fi and Lo-Fi MP3 formats.
You will need a program such as Real Player, WinAmp, or MusicMatch Jukebox to play these files. If you are currently using an older version of one of these programs, it would be best to update to the most recent version. I have found MusicMatch Jukebox to be the easiest of these programs to use, although WinAmp appears to be more compatible with the Netscape browser. These programs and others can be downloaded free at http://www.mp3.com/software. You might also go to http://www.mp3.com/help for step-by-step instructions for installing audio software. If you follow these instructions, and audio playback still does not work, try this link: http://help.mp3.com/help/diagnosis/index.html
The RENDLEMAN.COM web site uses streaming audio files with an extension name of M3U.
Before these files can be played back, you must associate M3U files with your playback program as follows.
Click the symbol in the top left corner of the WinAmp display. Then select options followed by preferences.
Within preferences, go to Setup and select File Types. To the right you will see a list of file extension names. Make sure that mp3 and m3u are highlighted.
I do not believe there are specific settings for mp3 and m3u files within RealPlayer G2.
If music begins playing but then stops, your internet connection is not sufficiently fast to handle audio playback. This
could be a function of modem speed or internet traffic.
I have not experienced any problems with audio playback using Internet Explorer 5.0.
Nevertheless, if you are using Internet Explorer and you cannot get music playback to work, try the following link: http://help.mp3.com/help/diagnosis/index.html .
