Hi satsriakal,

Some of the music and multi-media applications can convert or save the playlists into other formats (VLC, Amarok, Audacious, etc...). Just bring up a music application or multi-media application and a playlist(s) and choose a playlist export or save as option.

There are other posts in this forum on converting playlists as well.

Hope this helps ...

Thanks a lot for your answer.
Unluckily I've no possibility to open a .pla playlist file with a mutimedia Linux application.
I've tried with Banshee, VLC, Rhithmbox, etc... but no one is able to open a .pla playlist in order to convert it.

I do not have any ".pla" playlists to experiment with, but I do have most Linux music applications installed. If you give me a link to a ".pla" playlist file I can download, I can try them. I use Amarok and Audacious music players the most.

This may be able to convert the playlists

No need to look so far. Mint's own Xplayer (the default media player app) can read .pla playlists and save as .m3u.
