m3u8 extension

Hello,
I'm trying to listen to a radio; the extension of the flow is m3u8.
Foobar indicates that the file type is not supported.
Any solution?
Thanks a bunch.

Sounds like the streams are in HLS format which foobar2000 doesn't support natively. You can make it work with foo_input_ffmpeg. It has a built-in profile for HLS that you just need to enable.

I won't be at home before the 20th of this month, but I will try then.

Trying to open m3u8 links as in here

https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/127134-high-quality-320kbps-streams-for-all-bbc-radio-stations/

w
ith no lack.

Drag-n-drop them in foobar playlist, which seems populated fine, but no play. There is always a popup
Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported format or corrupted file):
"http://a.files.bbci.co.uk/media/live/manifesto/audio/simulcast/hls/uk/sbr_high/ak/bbc_6music.m3u8"

foo_input_ffmpeg is installed and configured.
Any ideas on this?

Can you play the stream(s) with some other player? The forum thread you linked mentioned VLC, but your link didn't work with VLC here even when I used a VPN connection to UK.

Same here also.
No VLC (VPN or not). But I have no idea about VLC (just tested it).
