    Just load the mp3 file to the public directory of your webspace and place link to it, an example link if your mp3 file was called "playit" would be:
    http://www.yoursite.com/playit.mp3

    Unfortunately mp3 is a filetype, not a playlist file.

    You can make playlists using pls, asx or ram.

    They must be playing shows they recorded. Unless they found a new way to use an mp3 file. I also tried the link again and it won't work for me. Anyone else try it?

    it should be a better idea to enclose the .mp3 file into a .m3u file
    something like the attached file

    That way the .m3u file gonna act as "playlist" file

    PS : unzip the attached file and see if it works out for you

    PS2 : I did a try at my place and it works A-ok
    but ... you have to manage your "volume" settings ... Volume is way to low
    Visit and listen @ BW !

    That's because they are using an mp3 encoder or similar. It's not a playlist file or anything. They are using icecast with an mp3 encoder I think.
