.PLS File Extension
File Type 1Multimedia Playlist File
What is a PLS file?
A PLS file contains a playlist, which is a list of multimedia files that can be played back with a media player. It stores references to the locations of the multimedia files, along with metadata about the items on the list. PLS files do not store actual audio and video data, only information in plain text about the audio and video files.
Many media players can open playlists in the PLS format. Some of them include Apple iTunes, Nullsoft Winamp, Clementine, and VideoLAN VLC media player. Text editors can also open PLS files since they are saved in plain text.
There are various types of files used to store playlists for multimedia players. The most common playlist file type is .M3U, which is created and opened by many media players. Some other playlist files include .ASX, .WPL, and .XSPF files.
