At first, I had no idea what you were talking about, since I thought
all of my Recently Played playlists were normal, and did not have
these funny URL entries. Then I noticed that at the end of one of my
client's playlists, there were three weird entries just like the ones
you described.

I checked the contents of the file, which are normal, and so I
suspect this is not a bug in my plugin, but is an old bug in Info.pm
that I have run into before. It caused the names associated with
stream URLs occasionally to be deleted in the cache, since they were
wrongly deemed to be "invalid".

I reloaded the suspect playlist in the web browser a few times, and
bingo! the URLs were gone and the names were back (having been re-read
from the .m3u file). I predict that you will be able to fix your
problem by wiping the cache and reloading the playlist in your web
browser. If that fixes it, then this is an old Info.pm bug (which may
have been fixed by now, for all I know).
