[macvoiceover] Re: getting quick time to play .pls files

quick time won't be any easier to use and creating an ITunes account is a 
lovely thing to do.  You should already have an apple ID because without 
one, you cannot perform updates and such because it needs your name and 
password which you will have created when you set up your computer.  If you 
somehow bypassed that step, there is a registration setup file in your home 
folder you can launch and complete the process with.

Believe me, Even when ITunes was not accessible, I found that it was easier 
to just play stuff in it rather than change all the file types.  Don't break 
what already works.

An example of what to change would be .doc files if you have some 
inaccessible wordprocessor on your mac so that they will be read by text 
edit and be accessible.

Subject: [macvoiceover] getting quick time to play .pls files


Hi all, I just downloaded a .zip file with my collection of radio
stations, from my small site, and when I launched a test .pls file,
i-tunes came up, and wanted me to register, and set up, so I told it
yes, and then, I told it not to mess with my internet connection, and
it took me to the i-tunes store, but I didn't want to create an
adccount, so I closed i-tunes, and then the stream started in i-tunes,,
but how do you tell the mac to open all .pls files with quick time,
because I don't feel like I want to have a library in a store, or be
pressured to buy things I don't want to buy, I just want to listen to
my streams, so how is this accomplished, telling quick time to play
.pls file types, or all the file types it can, and thanks in advance
for any assistance.

Marty
