that is the proper form (obviously without the space after the .hu), 
but more importantly, for this to work you need to make sure you've 
set <hostname> to my.server.hu in your icecast config.

note that the file try.mp3.m3u does not need (and should not) to 
exist on your icecast server, it is automatically generated by 
icecast itself.  If icecast gets a request for 
http://blah:port/whatever.mp3.m3u, icecast will serve up a m3u file 
containing :


where <hostname> and <listenport> are defined in the config file.  I 
thought all this was mentioned in the docs...

also, it should be noted that m3u is not just appropriate for mp3 
files, it's a general (and very simple) playlist format that contain 
any media types supported by the player using to open it..
