WMP and .pls files?

Specs: Windows XP Pro, 3400+ AMD

Hello,

I am trying to play a .pls streaming audio file in my Windows Media Player Version 10. However, I get the error that it does not have the Codec that is needed to play this file. Anyone know where to get it or how I should procede?

Thanks!
George

www.filext.com seems to indicate that a *.pls file is related to Matt Batt's Iam Player that you can get here: http://www.mattbatt.co.uk/iamplayer/

I don't know if there is a codec for Media Player, but it looks like the Iam Player can be downloaded for free, so you could always try downloading and installing that and seeing if it will play the desired file.

Thanks.

Michael

It may simply be a play list.

Best to just look at the file and see what's in it.

If WMP really needs a codec, it's probably on the XP CD.


If at first you don't succeed, you're about average.

Again, thanks for all your replies!

.exe file is a Windows Executable file.
Exactly this SetupOpenPlsInWMP.exe file is a very basic console app which would (theoretically) allow you to play Shoutcast Playlists (PLS files) in Windows Media Player:
