Playlists are files that contain information on which files to play. Usually they are plain text files with paths to the files to play. Here an example in the M3U format:
rock.mp3 classical.mp3 OTHER\new.mp3 \\COMPUTERNAME\Music\Band\title.mp3 http://www.webaddress. com/.../title 2.mp3 http://111.22.333.44:8024
This file would instruct the player to first play the file rock.mp3, then classical.mp3 and lastly the file new.mp3 which is in the directory OTHER.
