File names in the playlist go through shell expansion before they are used.
This allows you to put in entries like


The [ and ] characters have special expansion meaning to the unix shell. You'll need to
escape them if you want to use them explicitly (\[ \])

Note that this expansion differs depending on the platform (win32 or unix) and,
under unix, the kind of shell that is configured as the system wide default. It's usually just
"sh" but I've seen others in unusual cases.

Thank you for your attention.
