What Is a Media Playlist?


What is a music playlist? I heard it's an XML file.

A music playlist is a list of music items you put together so that you easily find them to play again later. A music playlist is like a Web site bookmark list.

Music playlists are linked to the Music Player Library in Windows Media Player 12.

Windows Media Player 12 can build a playlist for you and save it as an XML file. Here is a simple playlist file example, "Morning List.wpl":

<?wpl version="1.0"?>
  <meta name="Generator" 
   content="Microsoft Windows Media Player -- 12.0.7601.17514"/>
  <meta name="ItemCount" content="0"/>
  <title>Morning List</title>
   <media src="/E:\Early Morning - Awakening Music after Sleep.mp3""/>
   <media src="/E:\Tranquil Morning Hours - for Sipping Coffee.mp3""/>
