Funny, I had been using .m3u but just switched to .pls, because I got a
report that WMP was giving weird errors like:

"Cannot open.  Please verify that the path and filename are correct and
try again. (Error=8007000D)"


the server received invalid data from the client on the control

I don't know what causes this problem - it works fine in WMP when I try
it. But pls fixed it.

Maybe it's my mime-type. I've been using audio/mpegurl but maybe it's
supposed to be audio/x-mpegurl or something...
