Ticket #838 (closed enhancement: wontfix)
Investigate: Inspect MIME headers for unknown file extensions
|Reported by:||pablo||Owned by:||pablo|
Some URLs that the player identifies as playlists can actually contain media. If the server provides MIME type information, the player may be able to use that information to identify the stream as playable content.
If the Playlist tries to load a URL, and finds that the headers of the returned URLRequest contain media instead of XML, it could create a single PlaylistItem containing the original URL, along with provider information.
