Open PLS in WMP allows you to listen to PLS (MP3 Playlist, a.k.a. Shoutcast streams) in Windows Media Player. It's a simple translator that opens PLS files, finds the stream information, and passes it to Window Media Player.
Windows Media Player can open PLS (Shoutcast Playlist) internet radio streams, it just doesn't know it can. This program opens PLS files and forwards the information to Windows Media Player. I've been distributing this program since 2004 and have had
more than 100,000 downloads since then (probably many more, since others are free to distribute it as well). You can read more technical information about it in my
