.M3U Playlists

Posted on

Once I was cleaning my computer’s files, and I found a .m3u file. I opened it with the default (WMP), and it turned out to be a┬áplaylist of LDS songs.┬áBy learning more I found out it is just simple code! I viewed the code by opening with notepad:

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0,2017-04-5061-keep-the-commandments-256k-eng.mp3
Music2017-04-5061-keep-the-commandments-256k-eng.mp3

 

#EXTINF:0,CS_002_IAmAChildOfGod_eng.mp3
Children’s SongbookCS_002_IAmAChildOfGod_eng.mp3

 

#EXTINF:0,CS_004_ILivedInHeaven_eng.mp3
Children’s SongbookCS_004_ILivedInHeaven_eng.mp3

 

#EXTINF:0,CS_005_IKnowMyFatherLives_eng.mp3
Children’s SongbookCS_005_IKnowMyFatherLives_eng.mp3

 

#EXTINF:0,CS_009_CanALittleChildLikeMe_eng.mp3
Children’s SongbookCS_009_CanALittleChildLikeMe_eng.mp3

 

#EXTINF:0,CS_014_IPrayInFaith_eng.mp3
Children’s SongbookCS_014_IPrayInFaith_eng.mp3

 

#EXTINF:0,CS_016_ChildrenAllOverTheWorld_eng.mp3
Children’s SongbookCS_016_ChildrenAllOverTheWorld_eng.mp3

 

and so on.

It’s really simple really. See, this is the code as the CPU sees it:

 

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0,<TITLE>
<ADDRESS OF FILE><FILE NAME>

I think the

#EXTM3U
#EXTINF:0

is just something that tells the CPU the function to use, and what to do with the info.
