Uh hang on a sec, you can map different file extentions with the lynx.cfg and
you can define a download method to play the file in the lynx.cfg.
Regarding your alsa messages, just remove the alsa.cmo plugin from
/usr/local/share/freeammp/plugins/ directory or somewhere.

If anyone wants me to come up with the magic lynx.cfg guff for .pls files
ask nicely and I'll see what I can do <g>

Regards, Kerry.
