Karl,

Have you got any ideas on some specific techniques to contain the details 
I want? I created an html file with a meta refresh to the m3u url, and 
this new listen.pls file actually works from IE, firing up a media player 
and loading the m3u playlist/stream. But it does not work from Netscape or 
Firefox. They send the listen.pls web page to my media player.

Most of these redirect links will be coming from iTunes, and possibly 
other media players, so I'm not sure how well the meta refresh will work. 
It looks like it wants to work in iTunes, but then fails.

By the way, the stream is a line-in from a stereo, so there is no actual 
playlist or set of audio files. That may be a key detail that I should 
have mentioned first!

Thanks,
Tom
