Opening PLF files

Did your computer fail to open a PLF file? We explain what PLF files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your PLF files.

What is a PLF file?

PLF is an acronym for Playlist File. Files that contain the .plf file extension most commonly store playlist files for the InterVideo WinDVD software application, which is now owned by Corel. When a user creates a playlist within the application, the PLF file is created, containing an index of the media files referenced in the playlist.

The BlazeDVD Microsoft DVD player also uses the .plf extension for the creation of playlist files that are used with the software.

The .plf file format is also used by the Papyrus Live Updater application. Papyrus uses the software for license files which contain the license information for various applications, plug-ins and modules.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
