The Windows Media Playlist format stores playlist information in versions 9-12[1] of Windows Media Player, which stretches from late versions of Windows 98 to Windows Vista[2] (after which Windows Media Player itself was discontinued[3]), but mostly overlaps with the widely-used Windows XP. Windows Media Playlists are based on the SMIL standard, which is itself based on XML.

See also M3U and ASX, which Windows Media Player could write[4] and perhaps read.
