I just did a clean install of Windows, and I'm looking to recover my Real Player playlists. I saved all the files from my old installation, so I'm hoping I can just move some files from my old installation to the program files for my new installation. Does anyone have any idea which files I need to move? Or if this is even possible?

have a look at Transfer Songbird metadata to new computer which mentions few common locations – Sathya Jun 12 '13 at 9:01
Wow, RealPlayer. I'm surprised someone still uses that malware in this day and age. – Karan Jun 12 '13 at 10:27
I know I know. It's terrible. I've just invested so many hours organizing tracks by artist into chronological order. As far as I know there isn't a program that will do this for you right? – n_i_c_k Jun 12 '13 at 17:28
@n_i_c_k: Not sure I follow what you did exactly. Do the files (which format?) have the relevant metadata tags such as artist, year etc. set? BTW, don't forget to use @ name (without a space) to ping someone if you've left a comment. – Karan Jun 12 '13 at 17:48
