The server where this one below is hosted is sending out the wrong
mime.type in the returned headers. Should be audio/mpeg or audio/x-mpeg.

curl -I http://www.ohiolink.edu/etd/multiview.cgi/ucin984494016/Final.mp3
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 2003 05:26:23 GMT
Server: Apache/1.3.26 (Unix) PHP/4.2.3
Content-Type: application/octet-stream

With such a large (25Mb) files they should have "m3u streaming" links
as well, which I know xmms respects... but then if that server is not
configured for mp3 then there is no hope for m3u.
