no command line support for m3u or pls files in new Rhythmbox 2.90.1

view full story

http://askubuntu.com – I recently installed Rhythmbox (version 2.90.1) in my system running Ubuntu 11.10. I've discovered lthough I can play the uri's linking to .m3u and .pls files for radio streams in the GUI, they do not work in the command line. Instead I have to download the .m3u & .pls files to get the uri inside those files and use that as the argument instead when running from command line. I did not have to do this when using Rhythmbox from command line in Ubuntu 10.04. Is there any way to fix this or is this just a new limitation? (HowTos)
