What does "Stream playlists" actually mean

Recommended Posts

What does "Stream playlists mean". Is it for streaming playlists on my local network, or Cloud storage, etc. How does it work?

For example, here's a playlist file (.pls format) that I set up for the main UK BBC Radio stations. You could add the same URLs to an M3U playlist or to an internal playlist though.

The individual station titles will be visible in Recently Added, Recently Played, etc - but obviously not in Albums, Folders, etc as they are uniquely Playlist contents with no album or song title equivalences:

Opening any of them will stream that radio station live.
