Getting the track name to appear when downoading from a URL

When loading from Soundcloud the track is titled in the playlist and player with its stream name.

Is there any way of changing the title displayed to the title in the metadata?

I note that the Spinner Song of the Day online service can do this. Is it because the files Spinner uses have the ID3 meta data in the files already?

In the case of Soundcloud the files ID3 meatadata is not in the files, but we add the relevant meta data using the MediaCore methods of the the Winamp Javscript API. While this meta data is shown in the property viewer for the track it does not update the track name in the playlist or in the player.
