What a horrible pile of crap that streaming setup is.
It's an ASX playlist, pointing to a playlist file (.pls/Winamp format),
then pointing to one of those dodgy http/mms horrors.

Streaming mmsh://stream.garnierprojects.com/kinkfm_classx?MSWMExt=.asf
will work with xine-lib, and most likely with the gst mms plugin,
pitfdll and some win32 DLLs.

This looks pretty horrible, wish there was a better way to detect when
we need to "switch" to mmsh...
