I'm trying to get wget to retrieve playlists, which I'll then feed back into wget to download mp3s, but I can't figure out why it doesn't work. I actually do want the html pages anyway for information on what I'm listening to, but I have tried to get it to d/l the mp3s before the playlist attempt, and that didn't work either.

<li class="title">Play All:
<a class="notab" href="playlists/builder/5f5073b7e1565de2d038587944bde526.m3u">MP3</a> </li>

appears in the html that wget downloads, but I have tried all kinds of things including

-A m3u
-A *.m3u
-A "*.m3u"
-A "*.m3u" -r -l1

I can plainly see the adress of the file there, though I'm certain it's generated dynamically, but so is the html that wget has no trouble getting. Why won't wget retrieve mp3s m3us from this? Is it because of being inside the <li> tag?

And please, don't re-animate 2 year corpses if they don't really match
what you're doing; for this a new thread would have been just fine.
Which is why I split it out of the zombie.
