Better shoutcast support and MP3 streaming audio support please

  1. I'm not sure why WMP just doesn't support PLS files out of the box. Yes, I
    know I can open the file and cut the URL out and paste it into WMP but why do
    I have to do this? Shoutcast has a lot of support and it seems strange that
    MS chooses not to support it out of the box.

    One other thing related to playing MP3 steams in WMP 11. Why doesn't it
    display "now playing" information like ITunes or Winamp. If I open an MP#
    stream in WMP all I see is the "name" of the stream. I'd really like to see
    what song is playing too.
