can not open m3u playlists via doubleclick

Description of problem:
Some playlists can not be played
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. download a simple m3u playlist which has just one URL in the file.
2. doubleclick to open
You can not open. Nautilus tells me in a long text that this is file looks like
M3U is simple text but does not open it as such.
Do SOMETHING. Nautilus leaves user alone if he wants to use this file. The thing
is that many applications accept the file format. So it is not
unusable/unreadable. It might not be a perfectly correct M3U file but leaves no
If I add :
on the first line
Could you please tell us the exact filename you're trying to open, as well as
attaching it to this bug?
If it doesn't have an extension (.m3u), and doesn't have a "magic" at the
beginning, it's kind of hard to recognise it...
nope. I use Foresight Linux now.
Ok, closing this then (although I believe that if there was a bug there, it
would also be upstream...).
