Yes, that's right. The Domino server can't stream media files natively. You need to install the HotMedia Connects addin to serve up the files. To get around this, create a directory off your dominohtml directory to store the RM files (the media file itself). Then create a RAM file whose content is a single line with the URL to the RM file. This RAM file can reside in the directory, or in a document. When the RAM file is accessed through the web, it passes the URL to the RM file to RealPlayer which then downloads and plays the file. NOTE: this is not a streaming solution. Use HotMedia to provide that capability or set up a RealServer and point to the files there.
