Hi all

One of our clients has a music lisencing site  which streams music from a 
third party server.

So we provide the user with a playlist file generated by ColdFusion:


and give it a mime type:
     audio/x-mpegurl or audio/mpegurl

All has been well, for years, until Apple released Tiger.  Users with a 
shiney new Mac only get to download file.cfm.

I found a fix where the users have to unset and reset their QuickTime mime 
settings for mp3.

It seems iTunes has spannered something.  Does anybody know any more?
