What is a PLAYLIST file?

Files that contain the .playlist file extension are used to store a selected list of songs or videos on a user's computer or mobile device. The .playlist files contain a user-generated list of media that should be played when the .playlist file is launched.

The PLAYLIST file contains information such as the names of the songs or videos, their locations and the order in which the media files will be played. When a PLAYLIST file is selected, it will play the media that is defined in that file according to the settings that have been chosen by the user.

CyberLink PowerDVD is the application that is most commonly used to generate files with the .playlist file extension, although there are a number of other media players that also use the PLAYLIST file format.
