Clicking the same link in Microsoft IE 6 calls WMP and it begins playing the .mp3s. Reproducable on 2 XP Home computers. Tried from 2 locations (one local network sitting next to the server, one from across town). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to http://22.214.171.124:8081/audio 2.Click the first link, which goes to http://126.96.36.199:8081/audio/29june2005/29june2005.m3u 3. See WMP start and then give error dialog box. Actual Results: Windows Media Player starts, then gives an error dialog box: "Windows Media Player cannot play the file. If the file is on another computer, verify that you are connected to the network. If you typed a path, verify that it is correct. If the problem persists, the server might not be available." Expected Results: Play the playlist The file is a recording of an in-house lecture last wednesday, so it is not a copy protection issue. WMP claims it is a network problem. There is no proxie server: in one case the server is literally on the same hub/switch as the client. Server is running the current version of Apache. My gut feeling is that some parameter is not being passed correctly, such as the file name. I re-named all files involved and edited the playlist (text file) to remove all embedded blanks. Still no help.
I use Winamp to handle *.mru files (Content-Type audio/x-mpegurl send this server) and it works.

This is a known bug in the NPAPI WMP plugin. IE uses a different WMP plugin (the ActiveX one, to be exact) than mozilla, which is why it works in IE.
