dear folks,
i'm getting desperate here; have been searching for & trying out different media players without success.
i installed unofficial stable CM10.1 on my mini (but i had the same problem when i had cm7.2 on it) and i simply cannot find an app that opens .pls and .m3u files!!!

background: i have a large collection of playlist files containing URL's to online radio streaming (see attachment for example). those have always worked on my local computer (linux) and i don't see why this should be so hard with android.
some apps open the files but don't play anything
the only app i found so far that could play them was xiia player, but it kept crashing my phone.
there's servestream on f-droid, it can import url's from a playlist file, but it keeps stuttering, i don't know why.

any ideas?

i've tried a few more apps but still XiiaLive seems to be the only one that does it, and i am not happy with this application.

i know there's many internet radio and media player apps out there with shoutcast support and whatnot, but so far i haven't found a decent/simple one that can open .pls files like in my attachment.
even vlc cannot do it (which left me with my mouth hanging open. i don't understand)!

i saw that mplayer had been available for android for a while, but had to be dropped because of license problems...

what am i missing here?
