No, no it can't.
...and people wonder why WMP never caught on amongst the gamer/photoshop community, despite having much more flexible skins.
Tell me, when will WMP allow playlist export to XHTML?
Maybe when it does, you'll be abel to put filters on to remove the embarasing tracks *cough* jamie cullum *cough*
enough with the skinning, this is the very last thing that programmers should worry about. just make it usable and a pleasure to use and people won't care what it looks like.
A la, google, gmail.
Cher and Kelly Clarkson? W3bbo, we knew ye not.
Other than that, a pretty good playlist.
Where is the metal/heavy metal?

Well, there's plenty of "Nu-Metal" and "Generic Rock" like Queen
I'm not really into "heavy metal", I've been building up "Progressive Rock" instead, like Pink Floyd.

The problem with "WMPlugins.com" is that its too closed.
They don't allow user-submitted plugins or skins, it doesn't have the same "community" feel WinAMP.com has.
The WMP SDK could be distributed better too.

Say what? I always considered Pink Floyd to be more "Classic Rock" in its genre, but progressive when it was released. Maybe its a culture difference?
Speaking of which, looking forward to seeing AussieFloyd in a couple of weeks here in Minneapolis.
I have a question? Who cares about exporting playlists to XHTML? Why in the bloody bluest blazes of hell would I want to share my playlists?

If you were...say, a computer "hacker" wannabee 13 yearold who thinks he's "elite" by putting his WinAMP playlist on his Tripod webspace and maybe on his MSN Spaces "blog" and LiveJournal?
Like, er, you have? :O
Here's the big question: do you actually legally own all of that music?
Totally pointless feature if you ask me.
Set objPlayer = CreateObject("WMPlayer.OCX" )
Set objPlaylists = objPlayer.PlaylistCollection
Set objAll = objPlaylists.getByName("Dire Straits Playlist")
Set objList = objAll.Item(0)
For i = 0 to objList.Count - 1
Set objSong = objList.Item(i)
Modify the echo line to suit. Write it to a file even.
I do not know if you have tried opening the playlists in any text editor. They are in xml, however they do not have the standard notation on top. I am sure you could write a xslt that would output an xhtml from the playlist.
Ofcourse DCMonkey's solution would be better in the sense that you can obtain more information about the tracks if you need from the wmp library
I personally don't find a feature like this important enough to be included in the media player itself. Besides, there are plugins one can install to enable this functionality, as someone already pointed out.
One of the features that I missed when I switched from iTunes to WMP10 (I never liked WMP9) was the ability to share the library easily and seamlessly across the network. I did find a plugin that was able to do it, but it wasn't quite as nicely implemented as the Rendezvous (now Bonjour) sharing that iTunes has. I still liked several other aspects of WMP10 enough that I gave up this feature and switched over.
I was just looking over the screenshots of Build 5231 and noticed that WMP11 will support media library sharing over the network.
