Two questions

MOC version: 
Music On Console (version 2.5.2, revision 2930)

Running openSUSE.
If I do:
mocp -S
mocp -a aplaylist.m3u
mocp -p
It plays.

1. The problem is that it takes the playlist and sorts it by file name. I don't want it sorted. How do I stop it from doing that?

2. Can I play a stream that is in the form "<magicnumber>.mp3" using it?

To answer your second question first: MOC doesn't currently support HTTPS. I do have a simple patch for it, but I'm not sure it's the whole story in SSL handling.

The question of unwanted sorting of playlists is an artifact of the way MOC stores those lists internally. At least, I think that's the case in this particular scenario, but it's been a while since I looked at this issue so I'd need to refresh my memory.

MOC has now reached the age where several of it's internal mechanisms are not sufficient to support planned new functionality and are in need of a bit of an overhaul. This internal representation of playlists is one of those.

OK, thanks for the response.
