Where are the playlists stored?

Hello!

I would like to know where the playlists in the media library are actually stored, so that I can make a backup from them. Its a shame that when you import "hand made" playlists into Winamp from a directory, that Winamp doesn't save changes made to the playlists back into the original file.

Thank you!

Good, so the entire statistics of the media library (ratings, playcount, etc...) is stored in this ml-folder!? Then I will make a backupcopy of that folder regularly... I'd hate too loose all my ratings again !

Ratings & playcounts are stored in the library database - plugins\ml\main.dat

As explained in the link, you will also need to backup winamp\plugins\gen_ml.ini
This is the library config file, which stores the View/Playlist structure.

Further info & other alternative backup solutions here
