MY VB.m3u contains:
#EXTINF:-1,[+Squeezelite] Squeezelite Music

(and yes, I do have a weird plan of getting squeezelite to talk to my UPnP renderers, currently just mp3 to find out if it will work).

The '+' prefix isn't supported yet. This was a proposal for a possible future change.

The playlist name is always the name of the .m3u file. The item (track) name should be taken from the #EXTINF line. Did you do a Rescan after editing the .m3u file?

If you just want to play a .mp3 file from a URL without transcoding, you don't need the streamID. You can use the following .m3u file:

#EXTINF:-1,Squeezelite Music
Yes, I did rescan (more than once). None of my CPs nor renderers ever see more than 'desktop.mp3'. MinimStreamer is definitely installed (0.4) and I can see the converter, record and transcode fields on the System tab.

I may well want to transcode once I can get it all working. I don't want mp3, but it's the only stream I can seem to get to work out of my slightly complex 'cunning plan' thus far.

If and when I do get a transcode to work I'm a little puzzled as to what extension to use on the feed. If my http feed is, say, providing flac, and I want wav out, what should I call the feed? I have a feeling that my renderers look at the extension to determine the type, but will MinimStreamer be confused if I use a wav extension on the initial feed?
