Streamed music predates the other media by quite a while.  When it
became available, the URL was hidden from all residents except those
with permissions to set it (owner/groups). When the later media stream
became available it remained only visible to those people.

Given that now you can change that status, it would be nice if it was
available to LSL provided the address was visible to the script owner.

Check List
1) Check the documentation.
2) Drink coffee.
3) Check the documentation again, to see what I missed first time.
4) If I still can't solve it, ask if anyone else has the answer.
