 my $m3u = get("http://example.com/foo.m3u");
 my @items = m3u_parser($m3u);

DESCRIPTION

This module contains a simple parser for the Extended M3U playlist format as used in e.g. HTTP Live Streaming. It also supports the regular M3U format, usually found with digital copies of music albums etc.

 {
   type => 'comment',
   value => 'a comment',
 }

 {
   type => 'item',
   value => 'http://example.com/foo.mp3',
 }

 {
   type => 'directive',

 }
