    What player can I use to play m3u playlists (internet radio)?

    I have several internet radio stations that offer their stremas as m3u files (playlists). What software can I use to play them? Having to install a player that is good for audio (aside from the other one, which I will use for video) is fine.

    I have tried VLC and command-line mplayer, but they won't open my m3u's.

    Here's an example m3u:
    ort.m3u

    mplayer says:
    Code:
    Playing ./ort.m3u.
    libavformat version 53.21.1 (external)
    Mismatching header version 53.19.0

    Pretty much any player can play via a .m3u though the address's contained within have to be good which doesn't appear to be the case with your example.
    (404 not found
    for mplayer you need to use -playlist as in
    mplayer -playlist /path/to/whatever.m3u

    Yeah, it is a bad link. Downloaded the m3u file, can't play it with any player in Ubuntu. Got the same error message from vlc in Windows VM as well.
