so firstly thanks for the work, spun my head to see it all in one file, hey why not ! nice and simple i like it, focus on function not flash

anyway the thing im posting about is that wanting to offer the m3u playlist up to a player to download and play without needing to login i did find the setting "Allow unauthorized streams" which sounded like what id be looking for but enabling it didnt seem to do anything :( so i tracked down the code for that setting to see what it actually does where and found that it actually was working as expected, its just that the 'public' link it generates for a playlist is so obscure and easy to miss, particularly on a highrez screen that i missed it completely, also what it was seemed irrelevant.

the link text is 'i' and only visible on the edit playlist screen to the far right, can i suggest you make it something more obvious like 'get link' or 'public url'

anyway once i worked this out , i was able to set up 'tasker' an android app with a task that on execution 'GET' downloads the current version of chosen playlist and starts playing it in a m3u player.

how quickly can you spot it
