How to Play a Media Player Playlist on VLC
By Andrew Schrader
Media player playlists may come in a number of formats; the more popular playlists include the M3U and ASX file types. VLC Media Player supports creating your own playlists or importing playlists used in other media players. Users can import XSPF, ASX, B4S and M3U play lists to VLC's main player, which can then be added to and saved, based on your needs.
Click the "Playlist" tab at the top of VLC's screen and select the "Load Playlist" option. Enter the "Open Playlist File" window.
Locate the playlist file on your computer and click "Open." Your playlist will load in VLC's main program window. Highlight the first track you want to play and click the "Play" button in VLC's main interface.
- Add additional files to your playlist by clicking the "Add" icon and selecting the "Add File" option. Locate your media file(s) and click "Open."
