Forcing QuickTime To Let Go
Unfortunately, it can be very hard to get QuickTime to let go of these audio files, especially on a Macintosh. If you are still having trouble, you might also need to go into the QuickTime Player program and force it to give up its "ownership" of the MP3 files. Here is how to alter that preference inside Quicktime:
1. Find QuickTime in your Applications.
2. From the QuickTime Player menu, choose the QuickTime Preferences option.
3. Click on the Advanced Tab, and select MIME settings.
4. Unclick the Audio Files Box, MPEG Box and MP3 Box so that the boxes are completely empty (you may have to click once or twice, depending on your current settings) to make the boxes completely empty.
If you are using Firefox...
Firefox is notoriously cranky when it comes to RealPlayer. You can find detailed information about Real Player and Firefox at this mozilla-supported website.
Download Files and Play Them From Desktop
Often the problem with the default audio player has to do with your browser settings. If you are unable to reconfigure your browser default player, you can bypass the browser and play the files from the Desktop. This means you will download each audio file to your Desktop (or somewhere else on your hard drive), and then open the file from the Desktop rather than opening it in your browser.
