You can save the dummy play-list from off the web, edit it to your liking and
serve it as a static page from a web server. As you expected you can just add
a line to the top of the list specifying the url of an audio file containing
the credits you want each listener to hear.
If you serve the play-list from a web server make sure that the web server
software knows about the mime type that goes with your play-list format. For
m3u play-lists the server needs to be able to tell clients that the Mime type of
files ending in .m3u is audio/x-mpegurl.
It sounds like you would have administrative control of your web server, but
if you don't you can generate your play-lists from a cgi script and set the HTTP
header something equivalent to this:
echo Content-Type: audio/x-mpegurl
<p>Of course you still have to get all the linking sites to update their links.
Hope this is some help.
