Playlist Manager is a straightforward piece of software designed specifically for helping you generate M3U and WPL playlists. The M3U format is used for storing multimedia playlists and is supported by many media players, including iTunes, VLC, Audacious, and others, while the WPL file format is used in Windows Media Player.
The advantages of being portable
Since this a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.
You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to create M3U and WPL playlists on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.
There’s not much to brag about the user interface, as you are welcomed by a clean and simple layout that embeds only a few configuration settings to tinker with.
Playlist Manager gives you the possibility to pick the desired type of playlist that you want to create (M3U or WPL), insert audio and video files in the working environment using the built-in browse button, as well as generate multiple playlists.
What’s more, you are allowed to remove or delete the selected playlist, pick the saving directory, use the default audio and video players or specify custom applications, as well as change the looks of the tool by altering its colors (background and foreground).
Tests revealed that Playlist Manager carries out a task quickly and without errors. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of your computer is not affected.
All in all, Playlist Manager proves to be a simplistic piece of software that comes bundled with basic features for helping you manage your playlists. On the downside, the application doesn’t offer support for drag-and-drop operations and a built-in media player.
