Package: vlc
Version: 1.0.3-1

Hello vlc maintainers,
i used to run stable, in which reading playlists  worked without problems,
and have recently dist-upgraded to unstable,
and now it fails to read these same playlists.

A playlist that this happens with has following content :

When vlc tries to read this playlist
it produces following errormessage in terminal that i started it from :
5350C951:/$ vlc &
[1] 20039
5350C951:/$ VLC media player 1.0.3 Goldeneye
[0x8697ab0] main interface error: no interface module matched "globalhotkeys,
[0x8697ab0] main interface error: no suitable interface module
[0x85f3088] main libvlc error: interface "globalhotkeys,none" initialization 
[0x85f3088] main libvlc: Running vlc with the default interface. Use 'cvlc' t
o use vlc without interface.
[0x872e920] xml xml error: XML parser error (line 1) : Document is empty

[0x872e848] playlist demux error: can't read xml stream
[0x8856b80] access_mms access error: no data received

When i then open the "Media" dialog, and select "Open network stream",
and fill in same adress that appears in playlist file, it works well :
[0x8856b80] access_mms access: selecting stream[0x1] audio (19 kb/s)
[0x8856b80] access_mms access: connection successful

So it looks like the file parser is borken.

Thanks for providing vlc,
life is better with webradio :-)

I am closing this bug based on the earlier comment. It turns out the file
was invalid.

(As for the persistent XML error, it refers to the so called media library
cache, not the playlist file you explicitly are trying to open.)
