there is no way how to download and use playlist for streaming radios - pls, m3u - phone trying to open it but never ending loading animation appears in embded player

only shoutcast.com forcing file download, so it is stored and indexed and im able to play and add stations to own playlist and organize. but it is unreal with direct link to playlist by email , chat or from home site of webradio

EDIT: workarround: in ~/.mozilla/mozembed/prefs.js add filetype what you need to download and use in Media app

user_pref("media.ogg.enabled", false);
user_pref("media.mp3.enabled", false);

user_pref("media.m3u.enabled", false);
user_pref("media.pls.enabled", false);

please add Download link for long tap in browser

SailfishOS on its own does not know how to handle playlist files, but you can copy the link of the file and paste it into a web radio player like SailWave.

why to use some web radio app if you can download playlist from webradio homepage or search engine and IT IS INDEXED in few seconds and available in STOCK player, play as local mp3 no difference, controll from coverpage, stop/play from remote...

i do that now directly from shoutcast.com, or right now uploading from pc to phone a lot of m3u playlists containing streaming radios , it will work like charm (finaly i add some radios from uploaded into playlists created and named in phone to have it nice.

i only asking about ability to download playlists file type instead of openning in emded mediapleyer where is not supported

REQ: LONG TAP -> Download link, or faster, direct open in Media app

try yourself in jolla stock browser. any radio from shoutcast, download as winamp playlist and check your Media example http://yp.shoutcast.com/sbin/tunein-station.pls?id=709809 and use playlist with streaming radios in SailfishOS !

then http://www.listenlive.eu/ try to click on winamp icon (m3u) or ogg icon (pls) just to see difference from forced download by shoutcast webpage
