With wget I've checked that using

audio/mpeg                                   mpga mpega mp2 mp3 m4a ape

does  send the correct mime type (audio/mpeg), but I wonder why winamp
is  still  not  playing  it... Other streams that do work use the same
mime type. It might be because there's ".mp3" in the url or something?
I  don't  know  how winamp works, but it's definitely it's problem, as
vlc and xmms do both work.

I will not look more into this as it seems to be winamp's problem, not

Anyway,  I'm  going  to  open a new thread on wma in gnump3d. This two
threads  will  make  for a good documentation in case I get it working
