I have been using the mplayer media player in sound & video to play internet streaming radio. Up to this point I have had individual streams to play. As of Monday, one of the stations I listen to has changed this and now returns a playlist of streams. i am able to play this from the command line using:
mplayer -playlist http://provisioning.streamtheworld.com/ ... CAMAAC.pls
I have yet to determine a way to accomplish this from the GUI mplayer media player I have been using. I have tried the URL directly, but it appears not to recognize that a playlist is being returned. Adding -playlist to the URL line does not work. None of the other open menu entries appear to accept URLs. The playlist menu appears to also address only local files.
At the moment I am working around this by downloading the playlist and entering one of the streams on the URL menu, but this is a real kludge.
