Problem description:

When opening a last.fm radio on Amarok , the following error
message appears:

No suitable input plugin. This often means that the url's protocol is
not supported. Network failures are other possible causes.

According to this forum thread:

Amarok2 works connecting to last.fm radio and the machine with ip is down. Also, that last.fm changed the way that streams
were made on their radio removing shoutcast streams and using XSPF
instead. Amarok 1.X is still using legacy streams and that could be the
cause of the error.

Kind regards,
