I just realized I'm not forced to use the API I'm calling but just create a subproccess launching mplayer. I'm loosing some functionnalities (as stop the playlist) but at least it works and I'm convenient with that, thank you :)

You're right, again. I was using the SimpleHTTPServer module from Python. On Python 2.4 (on my embedded computer), the playlist is "octet-stream", but on my LAN server Python is 2.7 and send a correct x-mpegurl

I finally found a workaround, thank you!
