Easier Way to Play Online (Shoutcast) Stations?

Hi. I just installed Winamp and I'm enjoying the nostalgia, BUT.....when I click on the play arrows to play an online (Shoutcast) station in the Winamp directory on the player I get a popup box from Windows asking me if I want to open the file or save it. If I click to open the file, nothing happens. If I save it then I have to go to the file in my downloads folder, left click on it, choose "Open," and then the station opens up in my Winamp player. How can I change this so I can just click on the station in the Winamp directory in the player and have it start playing?

The easiest way would be to drag the play arrow into the playlist editor (to add), or onto the main player to wipe the playlist and play.

The "hardest" way is setting-up the m3u and/or pls file types being opened with Winamp. That makes that when you're going to click in the SHOUTcast directory to play an online radio, automatically plays in Winamp itself.

It depends on the browser being used.
Different browsers have different mime/file-type handling configurations and handle .m3u & .pls differently...
