 Well, OK, that's not entirely true. While you can't play an arbitrary
m3u file, you can play playlists that are in the database (which may

To see how, you can look at what happens when you put a shortcut to a
playlist on the home screen and then launch it.

and to retrieve the playlistid:
Cursor cursor = getContentResolver().query
(MediaStore.Audio.Playlists.EXTERNAL_CONTENT_URI, null, null, null,
if (cursor != null) {
 if (cursor.moveToFirst()) {
  do {
     playlistid = cursor.getString(cursor.getColumnIndex
     } while (cursor.moveToNext());

No, that is not the case. Since 2.1 update 1 pinch to zoom works on the N1
