Easy answer: Lynx also requires a mime type for it's suffixes. So, even if
you defined it there, it still wouldn't play, the mime type still would
not be recognized. I asked ACB radio to add a mime type for those files,
but they said they'd need to ask the ISP they're running on. Apparently,
they didn't get far, I've seen no mime type added.
As an alternative, you might want to go to www.linux-speakup.org
and use the acb radio link they've provided for the mainstream, they've
got the mime type:
defined and you just need to set that type up to be used with
freeamp. This still won't allow m3u files from acb radio to be played,
however. You'll still need to download and save them, then run freeamp on
