Printing music playlists can be very helpful particularly if you want to burn music CDs or DVDs. Instead of noting down the names of each track on the CD cover, you can simply print the playlist and paste it on the CD cover using glue. In order to print your Windows Media Player playlist, you need to download and install a Microsoft plug-in. The plug-in is called Media Info Exporter. It can export your Windows Media Player playlists to MS Excel, Word, Access, HTML and even XML. However, since it’s a playlist, you will most likely want the entries to remain in order, so Excel is the best option.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Visit the first link in the Resources section below. When the webpage opens, click the link “WnterPlayerPack.msi” from the top right of the page. This is the download link to Microsoft Winter Fun Pack.

  2. 2

    Click “Open” in the “File Download” box. Then click “Yes.” Now, the Microsoft Winter Fun Pack will start downloading. This Fun Pack contains Media Info Exporter Plug-in for Windows Media Player.

  3. 3

    Run the set-up file and choose only “Media Info Exporter” from the list. You only want this plug-in, not the entire pack.

  4. 4

    Go to “Start” once you have installed Media Info Exporter. Select “Media Info Exporter” from the list in the start menu. It might take a few seconds to load.

    Select “Media Info Exporter” from the plug-ins dialogue box. Now select “Properties.”

    Go to “Applications” under “Properties” and select “MS Excel.” You will see a drop-down menu asking you to select a file type in which you want to save the information. You can just select “best fit for application” and click “OK.”

  8. 8

    Open Windows Media Player and click on “Library.”

  9. 9

    Select the playlist you want to print in the “Contents pane.” Now right-click on the selected playlist and click on “Send to” > “Media Info Exporter.”

  10. 10
