There are so many reasons why people need to find out location of their saved playlist. Sometimes people lost their phone and when they buy new one, they need those songs back again. There are so many people who face these types of issues.
Sometimes people need to find out their playlist and the reason to find out these playlist is crashing of computer or losing of phone etc. I am going to discuss a case with you here with solution, whose computer is crashed and this person lost everything from their computer.
"I lost all of my files and libraries and music. After try my best to rescue them ,the problem is all of my playlists that I've spent years tweaking, I don't want to lose them! I'm wondering where the file is within iTunes so that I can recover it."
Now in this case, he needs to know where these playlists are saved, so he can easily recover it. If this person don't know about the saved location of playlist then this person cannot recover his music libraries again.
Usually iTunes doesn’t store any playlist on any computer. Your library will contain all details about playlists. Just for example when you export iTunes library and import later, your playlists will also imported too.
If you want to find out playlist location in itunes, the trick is:
Copy folder of iTunes from the backup folder in the original location, to ‘spoil’ the library.itl file
When you do it that time you will lose few album covers but no need to worry about it. You can regain it from: File > Library > Get Album Artwork.
You have “spoiled” itl file by doing this.
Now you have to remove previous .itl file from the location: Music/iTunes/iTunes Library.itl
Now to create this file again you have to visit and enter this location:
It will rebuild empty .itl file.
After following these all above steps double click on iTunes icon and launch it. When you launch it then it will notice that something is wrong there and then it will start rebuilding the itl file by using previous xml file. A message on screen will come with name “importing iTunes music library.xml”
After some time this import will restore your old structure.
