.zpl File Extension

Developer: Microsoft Corporation
File type: Playlist File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .zpl. Files with the file extension .zpl can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .zpl files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .zpl file?

The ZPL file extension is a data file format associated to Microsoft’s free Zune software. ZPL files and Zune were developed by Microsoft Corporation. These files contain playlists of songs or videos saved by Zune to manage and organize such playlists by libraries, genres, or favorites. The Zune software is used to transfer multimedia files in different devices such as XBox, PCs, Windows Phones and Zune Player. By nature, Zune playlist is not compatible with Winamp and other players. So to be able to allow playlist work in Winamp, ZPL files must be converted to M3U, PLS or WPL files by using Zune Playlist Converter. It is also possible to import the Zune playlist into an Excel worksheet by using the XML and XPath. Aside from software, Zune used to create Zune player hardware which was similar to an MP3 player but production already ended in 2011 and was replaced by Windows Phones.

how to open a .zpl file?

Launch a .zpl file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .zpl file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .zpl files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .zpl file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .zpl file will open the correct application.

Microsoft Zune

Zune is a digital media store developed by Microsoft. Provided are portable media players, a music subscription service known as a "Zune Music Pass", digital media player software for Windows, music and video streaming services via the Zune Software for the Xbox 360 game console. Also included are music, TV and movie sales, and media software for Windows Phones. Zune and the ZPL file format were created by Microsoft. These files have playlists of songs or videos that are saved by Zune to administer and arrange such playlists by libraries, genres or favorites. The Zune software is used to transfer multimedia files to and from various devices, such as XBox, PCs, Windows Phones and Zune Player. By default, the Zune playlist is not compatible with other media players. This means ZPL files must first be converted to M3U, PLS or WPL file formats with the use of a Zune Playlist Converter to make it work.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .zpl files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .zpl. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
