Sharing playlists?

Just bought a Creative Zen Touch and am messing around with playlists for the first time. I was looking around online for websites that share playlists and was wondering if this is even worth checking out. Not sure that the file type for Creative (Mediasource) would even work with other software. Are these usually .m3u files?

Do you share? Webjay seemed like a popular site, but on first glace I just saw a bunch of teenage emo bands.

Not really on the topic of sharing playlists, but I also have a Zen Touch, and one of the things that has always pissed me off about MediaSource (and the reason that ultimately led me to dump the app) is that you cannot export playlists to .m3u format.

MediaSource stores all of your info (library, playlists, etc.) in password-protected databases; so, unless you know the password (which I've never managed to find) there's no way to get that data. This sucks the most when you happen to rename a bunch of files in your library (or, in my case, all of the files in your library), because the MediaSource playlists don't track your changes (I was left with at least 20 empty playlists).

I'd recommend that if you want use playlists outside of your Zen Touch, then you use another app (like WinAmp).
