What is M3U File?

Step by step instructions to Open an M3U Document 

VLC is my most loved free media player due to its help for an enormous assortment of sound and video positions. Besides, it bolsters the M3U design as well as comparative playlist document sorts you may keep running into, as M3U8, PLS, XSPF, WVX, CONF, ASX, IFO, Prompt, and others. 

Despite the fact that Winamp was one of the principal projects to help them, other media players can open M3U records as well, similar to Windows Media Player, iTunes, and Venturesome. 

Remember that the M3U document itself isn't a media record. So while the documents that the M3U focuses to may open fine and dandy in an alternate media player than those I've connected to over, it's conceivable that the program can't comprehend the playlist record, and accordingly won't realize what to do with it when you attempt to open it. 

M3U documents can, obviously, be opened with any content tool since the records are content-based (understand underneath). I prescribe the free Notepad++.

Step by step instructions to Manufacture an M3U Document 

M3U records are typically not worked starting with no outside help. In media players like VLC, for instance, you can utilize the Media > Spare Playlist to Document... the choice to spare the rundown of as of now open melodies to an M3U document. 

In any case, in the event that you would like to assemble your own M3U record, it's imperative that you utilize the correct language structure. 

Here is a case of an M3U document:

C:\Files\My Music\Example.mp3
 C:\Files\My Music\Favorites\Example2.ogg
All M3U records will have likenesses, yet additionally contrasts, to this case. The number after the "#EXTINF" areas is the length of the sound in seconds (you may see a - 1 here if the sound is being gushed on the web and has no set length). Following the time is the title that should show in the media player, with the area of the record underneath that. 

The case above is utilizing outright pathnames to the records (the entire way is incorporated), yet they can likewise utilize a relative name (e.g. just Sample.mp3), a URL (http://pcsupport.about.com/Sample.mp3), or a whole organizer (C:\Files\My Music\). 

Note: The advantage of utilizing relative ways over outright ways is that you can move the media documents and the M3U record to another PC and still utilize the playlist without making changes to it. This works inasmuch as the media documents and M3U record stay in respect to each other similarly as they were on the beginning PC. 

You can some of the time point to another M3U document from inside one M3U record, however, the media player you're utilizing may not bolster it. 
Step by step instructions to Change over an M3U Document 

As should be obvious in the past area, an M3U document is only a content record. This implies you can't change or change the record to a playable MP3, MP4, or some other media arrange. Everything you can do with M3U document changes over it to another playlist design. 

You can change over M3U to M3U8, XSPF, or HTML utilizing VLC by opening the M3U document in the program and afterward utilizing the Media > Spare Playlist to Record... menu alternative to pick which configuration to spare it in. 

Change over M3U to PLS with the free Playlist Maker application. It's accessible for download as both an installable and a convenient program. 

You can likewise change over an M3U record to content in the event that you simply need to open the document in a word processor to see the documents it's referencing. Open the M3U document in Notepad++ and after that spare it to TXT, HTML, or another content-based organization. Another alternative is to rename the expansion too .TXT and after that open it with a word processor.
