The Winamp playlist file type
I took a look inside a winamp playlist the other day (with trusty Notepad) and saw that its actually just a text file which points to the files which are inside the playlist. There was, however, something that confused me. As shown below there is some weird (and seemingly random) number before each song which I have no idea about. Also, there are some letters before it.. I searched the Winamp website, but it had no information on it.
