It actually works pretty well for WMP with the .asx file (didn't try it with the pls file associated to WMP). Here's what it can look like:

code:

<ASX version="3">
<Entry>
<ref href="icyx://supermix.sunyocc.edu:8000" />
<ref href="http://supermix.sunyocc.edu:8002" />
</Entry>
</ASX>


If you are using Windows, make sure to uninstall the Orban plug-in to see what happens.

iTunes can read both pls and asx, but it hangs when it hits the AAC+ stream. If you select the second stream and push the play button, it is happy again. Since Windows at least handles the problem with some amount of grace, I have to applaud, that's one up on APPLE!

BTW I'm using the newest incarnation of iTunes, downloaded last week to see if anything changed... It still sucks, but it's popular.

Your mileage may vary!
