In the playlist community, we are very careful to respect the etiquette of providing backlinks whenever possible. For example, Webjay has not one but three routes back to the host. That said, deeplinking is the native mode of audio/video on the web. If you object to deep linking, the web is not for you. All audio/video hypertext is made of deep links. Playlists are not HTML. They are not browser applications. In the context of web audio/video, the concept of deep linking is not applicable. There is a canard that one might be stealing bandwidth from the host. This is pure silliness.
