Using the API is it possible to play a remote M3U/PLS?ASX file?
This would be very useful for radio streams where the published URL is the playlist file, which often offers multiple streams inside it - for example Absolute Radio isn't too uncommon by having a playlist which plays
1) An Advertising message
2) There stream, server 1
3) There stream, server 2
4) There stream, server 3
5) There stream, server 4
6) Sorry we're having problems
By picking a single stream they are more likely to die (often just IP addresses) and more likely to be overloaded.
File > Play Url } http://shout.astream.com/listen.pls
Loads the NME Radio M3U file, parses it, and plays it
Just throws up "Error synching to stream"
