Hmm, I relabeled one of them to .pls and it started to work... they had all
been .m3u files.

Did something change? They all worked before.

Did you save this as a .PLS or a .M3U?

Make sure its a .PLS and try downloading the latest nightly. This playlist
works for me using recent daily build.

A great number of things changed between Slimp3 server 4.2.6 and SlimServer 5.0.
I'm not sure what, specifically related to playlists, changed, but the format
you posted didn't look like an M3U. Some formats were a bit muddled before, so
you probably just got away with it then. The workings around file formats is
tightened up a lot in SlimServer.
