A playlist chunk in the Wave file format contains the following information.
|Byte sequence description||Length in bytes||Starts at byte in the chunk||Value|
|chunk ID||4||0x00||The ASCII character string "plst"|
|size||4||0x04||The size of the playlist chunk (number of bytes) less 8 (less the "chunk ID" and the "size"). Since each segment has 12 bytes, this is also equal to the number of segments multiplied by 12|
|number of segments||4||0x08||The number of segments that follow|
|data||various||0x0C||A list of segments|
The playlist defines a series of cue points (see Cue chunk (of a Wave file)), which refer to some segments of the file, defines in what order the segments should be played, how long each segment is and how many times it should be repeated during playback.
Each segment in the playlist has the following structure.
|Byte sequence description||Length in bytes||Starts at byte in the segment||Value|
|cue point ID||4||0x00||The ID of the cue point in the cue chunk|
|segment length||4||0x04||The length of the segment in number of samples to play from the sample defined by the cue point|
|repeats||4||0x08||The number of times the segment should be repeated|
