Where can I find my Rhythmbox playlist file?

On my computer, it appears that they are located in a hidden file called playlists.xml. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 (which has Rhythmbox 0.12.8).



rhythmbox is a very easy to use music playing and management program which supports a wide range of audio formats (including mp3 and ogg). Originally inspired by Apple’s iTunes, the current version also supports Internet Radio and integration, iPod syncing and generic portable audio player support. Audio CD playback, ripping and encoding, music sharing, and Podcasts.

For performance reasons, the remote control abilities have been moved from the rhythmbox binary to a separate program. See rhythmbox-client and the corresponding man page for documentation.
