Notes about the PLS file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The PLS file type is primarily associated with 'Generic Playlist File'. Used by different programs as a playlist for audio files. Can also be used as a redirector for .OGG Vorbis files although this is a non-standard use. Use a text editor to create a .PLS file that contains a single line: the full URL to the .OGG file (e.g., MYAUDIO.PLS contains http://mysite.com/myaudio.ogg as its only entry). Use ASCII mode to upload the .PLS file and binary mode to upload the .OGG file. Be certain the server has application/ogg as the MIME type for the .OGG file extension and audio/x-scpls for the .PLS file extension. You can then link to the .PLS file with the following HTML code: <a href="myaudio.pls" type="audio/x-scpls">Play My Audio</a>

This is a popular and inexpensive way to deliver radio over the Internet. It is especially popular with small broadcasters, as it does not require the server to have a registered domain name, just an IP address. It can deliver a live stream or a playlist of recordings. On a Macintosh, you can tune into hundreds of these streams by clicking the radio tower button in iTunes. There are also several Shoutcast players for Windows, such as WinAmp.
