-3285 Disconnected
Authored by: johnblommers on May 25, '02 02:36:25PM
This does not work for me. Sure - the little playback control is shown in the far right column and it can be pressed, but the Finder does not manage to negotiate a good connection. The message "-3285 Disconnected" appears after it tries to connect. This happens whether or not iTunes is running.

I'm using OmniWeb 4.1Beta7 and Mac OS 10.1.4. I do get the .pls files do donwload to the desktop and they do show up as files of kind Internet Audio Playlist.

Too bad ...

I saw the -3285 disconnected messages also. I think that some .pls files in my downloads folder were out dated, it looks that at least some of the internet radio stations have dynamic addresses, so the .pls files need to be "fresh".

Don't double click the file, but just push the play button once.

I don't have Audion installed, so the Audion start-up issue doesn't
happen, if I double click it itunes comes up.

And yes...its a cool, but unnecessary waste of bandwidth..;-)

Quite funny, some play some don't. Maybe it's a dynamic link thing. Notice also that every .pls file saves several links at the time. Maybe the Finder takes the first one in the list, and if that is broken it doesn't bother looking for the next... I haven't tried to separate the addresses to different files and see if that would work.

Cool. I could get 6 streams going on my DSL. I only received this message it seems after trying to get too many or sucking up more bandwidth than I had. Browsing the net and 6 streams = not good.

I'm impressed! pretty neat little hidden feature. Why does Apple keep all this wonderful stuff from us.

I didn't realize that "PLS" was as common to the OS as "MP3". No complaints here...
