Hi,

Last week, opensource.com hosted a web-cast, Making Music with FOSS. I
missed it, but I was confident that the media would be archived, which
is indeed the case. However, the media file is in the proprietary .arf
format from WebEx. Though I searched extensively, I was unable to locate
a method for converting the file to a more usable form.

Of course, I COULD just view the materials on-line, but where's the fun
in that? The download-able media player supports only Windows and Mac. I
was about to hold my nose and install the player when I was inspired to
attempt a Wine installation. I downloaded the WebEx .arf Player, set the
executable permission on the .msi file and booted it under Wine. Wine
happily took it and installed it and the downloaded media played without
a hiccup.

I tried this, but no luck. The WebEx .arf Player got installed correctly under Wine, and it says "Network Recording Player Version 2.17.1", but when I try to open the file Making Music with FOSS.arf, it complains with "Unknown file format. You may update your Network Recording Player and try again." Anyone else got that? (I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and Wine 1.2.2).

Cheers,
