How Do I Play a WPL File?

by Miles Jarvis

You can create, play and save multimedia playlists using Microsoft Windows Media Player. These playlists are saved as WPL files, which can be modified by removing and adding files to the Windows Media Player playlist. Besides Windows Media Player, WPL files can also be opened and played using several other media players, such as Winamp and ALLPlayer. Learn to play your WPL files using Windows Media Player and other software programs.

Microsoft Windows Media Player

Step 1

Download the latest version of Microsoft Windows Media Player from the Microsoft Corporation website (see Resources). Ensure you have Windows Media Player 9 or a later version. WPL files do not play on earlier versions of Windows Media Player.

Step 2

Open Microsoft Windows Media Player. Select "File" followed by "Open..."

Step 3

Browse through your computer's files and select the WPL file you want to play. Click "Open." The WPL file will appear under the "Playlists" list on the left of Windows Media Player.

Select the playlist and press "Play."

Winamp

Step 1

Download Winamp from the Winamp Media Player website (see Resources). Install and open Winamp.

Step 2

Click "File" followed by "Open Playlist." Alternatively, press "CTRL" and "O" simultaneously.

Step 3

Browse through your computer's files and select the WPL file you want to play. Click "Open."

Press "Play" to listen to the playlist.

ALLPlayer

Step 1

Download ALLPlayer from the ALLPlayer website (see Resources). Install and open ALLPlayer.

Step 2

Click the "Playlist" icon on the ALLPlayer toolbar, and then click "Open Playlist."

Step 3

Browse through your computer's files and select the WPL file you want to play. Click "Open."

Press "Play" to listen to the WPL file.

Warning

  • WPL files do not contain music or video files. To play a WPL file, you must have the individual files that make up the playlist.
