When I try to play a Jamendo .m3u file, the mediaplayer gives an error and crashes. I have attached a screenshot of the problem. The .m3u file contains:

#EXTINF:206, no vuela
#EXTINF:296,miss manias

MediaPlayer does not yet support streaming, but the crash should not happen indeed.

Haiku revision: hrev42211 still a bug. The system opens m3u files with StyledEdit App.You can't open it with MediaPlayer . System: Haiku hrev1-alpha3 on VMware workstation 8 on windows 7 32 bit

Can't reproduce the crash. Things are not going too well however:

  • We don't even parse the M3U file. Supporting that and adding the items to the playlist would be nice, even if we can't play them
  • When run from Terminal, with the m3u file as an argumen, MediaPlayer shows the BAlert saying it can't play it. The main window doesn't come up, but the application continues running.

(In #9567) This is the (basic) m3u playlist format. So a duplicate of #6670.
