"404 not found" when using .m3u and WinAmp


My boss, a client, and I are all having trouble making the .m3u audio files on this page stream the associated mp3s when using WinAmp as our audio player. We get the "http://1.1 404 Not Found" error in the WinAmp player. The files in question are at the bottom of the page under the topic heading: "Extended Program Excerpts."

We are all using Windows-based platforms. Windows Media Player plays these files just fine, so I know that there is no typo in the file paths.

I looked around extensively in the forum and FAQ and was unable to find a problem like this described by other WinAmp users, but if it is posted somewhere, my apologies in advance.

Thank you,

Are you asking this as a "listener" or as the web page editor?

The MP3 stream(s) in the M3U playlists, contain filenames with spaces, thus that means the URL/address has spaces. Since spaces generally can not be used in URLs, they are represented as %20. If the spaces in the streaming address were replaced with %20, it should work just fine.

Example from first M3U

Thank you very much -- inserting the %20 seems to have done the trick.
