I often listen to wsmc
I used to be able to click this m3u8 text file:'
and vlc would immediately play the stream, but starting yesterday, that stopped working.
Of course, I can still go to
and press the arrow on the website to listen, but it is much better if I can just click on a m3u8 (or pls, xspf, etc) file and get vlc to start the stream.
I used Goggle Chrome network analyzer but couldn't find anything that would work to play in vlc.
Any help I would appreciate.

Use the m3u8 link:
It looks like the link stops working after a while.
Neither of those links that you gave will play in vlc (Windows, or Android). See screenshot. I need to play in vlc on my Android device to be able to browse websites and simultaneously listen to the radio. If I use your links in the Android browser, when the browser is put in the background, the music stops. As I said in my first post, this url used to work in vlc, but no more:
Here is an example of another radio station that works in vlc Android:
Title1=Florida's 89.1 WUFT-FM Classical HD2

Both links I gave played in VLC when I made the original post. But they expired a few minutes later and would no longer play (hence the addition to my post).
I found another m3u8 file that I could download and play with MPCHC and a few other media players (not VLC) but it would only play for about 10 seconds. The local m3u8 file:
#EXTM3U #EXT-X-VERSION:3 #EXT-X-STREAM-INF:BANDWIDTH=32000 https://wsmc.streamon.fm/hls/stream/WSMC-32k.aac.m3u8
Question for Jagabo or anybody that knows:
I contacted the radio station and they gave this url that works (plays in vlc and can be saved to xspf file to immediately play the stream):
My question is: how can one find the above url? I tried playing the browser stream (https://wsmc.streamon.fm/) and used network tools and could not find any such link by myself. Is it possible that the link simply cannot be found (obfuscated), unless it is given by the radio station?
