How do I play M3U files in Chrome?

Answered by Robert Flynn

To play M3U files in Chrome, you can follow these steps:

1. First, locate the M3U file that you want to play. It is usually a text file with the extension “.m3u”.

2. Right-click on the M3U link and select “Save link as” or “Save target as” to download the file to your computer.

3. Once the file is downloaded, open Chrome and go to the location where you saved the M3U file.

4. Right-click on the M3U file and choose “Open with” from the context menu. If you don’t see the “Open with” option, hold down the Shift key while right-clicking to reveal it.

5. In the “Open with” submenu, select a media player that supports M3U files. Some popular choices include Winamp, VLC media player, and iTunes. If the media player you want to use is not listed, click on “Choose another app” to browse for it.

6. After selecting the media player, make sure to check the box that says “Always use this app to open .m3u files” if you want Chrome to automatically open M3U files with the chosen media player in the future.

7. click on the “OK” or “Open” button to open the M3U file in the selected media player. The media player will then start playing the audio or video files specified in the M3U playlist.

It’s important to note that Chrome itself does not have built-in support for playing M3U files. Instead, it relies on external media players to handle the playback. Therefore, it’s necessary to have a compatible media player installed on your computer to play M3U files in Chrome.

I hope this helps you play M3U files in Chrome successfully! Let me know if you have any further questions.
