This sample uses classes that are in the Windows.Media.Playlists namespace. It provides five scenarios:
Create and save a playlist from a set of audio files.
Display the contents of an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).
This loads a Playlist object using LoadAsync, and obtains the properties of each file in Playlist.Files using Windows.Storage.FileProperties.StorageItemContentProperties.GetMusicPropertiesAsync.
Insert an item at the end of an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).
Remove an item from the end of an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).
Remove all items from an existing playlist (WPL, ZPL, M3U).
Note The Universal Windows app samples require Visual Studio to build and Windows 10 to execute.
