pls redirect

I am trying to redirect a pls file to a php (which rotates several prerolls, then launches my stream). The php, which I named index.php, works perfectly, but this pls:

launches Winamp fine, but I get an "error syncing to stream" message.

(BTW, my webhost supports phps, but does not support htaccess files which cause php files to be seen as pls files.)

Winamp doesn't know what 'http://mysite.com/launch/' is and so it'll just attempt to try to open it as an mp3 stream (assuming default settings) which leads to the 'error syncing to stream'. you'd need to have the redirect indicated as being a pls in some form (might be able to have a htaccess rule to map say 'http://mysite.com/launch/playlist.pls' to the php script in that way. either way with the current streamurl Winamp just won't attempt to load it as a playlist unless it has .pls on the end.
