This is displaying the name and path elements of the playlist item. On  
Windows, VLC formats name to be the last path component of path - minus  
the file extension. On Mac (and presumably other unix variants), name is  
equal to path.

I can clean this up in the playlist code after the new interface is  
committed, or alternatively someone else could clean it up at the source  

that'll keep the http interface simpler and non platform dependant.
