.WPL File Extension

Windows Media Player Playlist

Configuration File
Windows Media Player Playlist (.wpl) files are client-side playlists that are written in a proprietary format. Microsoft introduced this file format in Windows Media Player 9 Series. The .wpl format can create dynamic playlists, whereas .asx and .m3u formats cannot. In Windows Media Player 9 Series, the auto playlist feature uses the .wpl format. The .wpl format is the default file format used for playlists that you save in Windows Media Player 9 Series.

    PLEASE HELP!@!!! How do you delete the file-names that come up in WMP-9 PLAYLIST (dropdown box) after the files contents have been deleted? It seems impossible to delete them from within the program. I have deleted the .wpl files from Explorer but it makes no difference - they still appear in the drop-down lists. AAGGHH!!

    My WPL Play list shows the exact order in which I want the songs (those burned into a CD). But my DVD player does not recognise this play list and jumbles up the play order. Is there any solution to my problem?

    I'm trying to burn CD's out of Windows Media Player but they never play in my car or on other CD players. Is there something I need to do in order to get the CDs to burn the way they should be?
