This issue was first noticed in with an "Oops, file type not supported" message in Transfers, but the files did at least appear in Mediaplayer and worked as expected.

Still present in

After downloading (successfully) the file from and tapping on it in Transfers, I get the immediate message Cannot open file, file type 'audio/x-scpls' not supported.

Mediaplayer is not showing the .pls file and refreshing the media database does not help.

After a manual search for .pls files present in the system, I found the 2 I downloaded, but they were stuck in a 'temp' folder, I copied them to my Music folder, now they appear in Mediaplayer and work as expected.

Quite clearly, .pls files are supported but not fully recognised by other parts of the system.
