I can get it working (via an ssh connection) using export DISPLAY=:0 && xdg-open /path-to-file/test.html & when the "default" browser is midori, but no...

I have been investigating sound on the Pi recently, and have successfully worked out how to play .mp3 files and how to use mpd and mpc for streaming internet radio to the Pi.

In fact a populated m3u8 file called live.m3u8...
