Isn't it due to the barefoot w3m, i.e., the w3m executable, not

I got the same error when I tried to open a mp3 file in the
terminal emulator that runs:

$ w3m http://www.bluesbeforesunrise.org

I meant I guess the barefoot w3m doesn't support or is designed
to reject mp3 natively.  Why Boruch Baum does it is he uses the
own version of emacs-w3m that uses wget to download files (the
ordinal version of emacs-w3m uses w3m to download files).  Some
kind of setting may perhaps make w3m support mp3, though I don't
know what it is.
