M3U is just a playlist file, and can actually specify different types of
streams: MP3, AAC, OGG, for example.
The Logitech Squeezebox Product Family plays these streams nicely, although
you will need to create an account on the Logitech Squeezebox site to add
custom/favorite streams which are not in their Directory. This is no big
deal though.

Hi,

Thanks, that helps.  What I really want however, is an MP3 stream that can
play on a WI-FI mp3 player.  I know the m3u streams, but they wont 
play.   I can find the stream for the regular KING HD-1, but not for 
opera or evergreen.
