Rockbox playlist format

What is the format (or formats) of Rockbox playlists?  Are they the standard .pla or .m3u?  I want to create my playlists using Amarok under Linux or a similar program and then download them to Rockbox via the USB connection.   I also want to edit them on the computer, since the interface there is much easier to work with.  Is that a reasonable thing to do?

 

And by the way, I haven't been able to locate the specification of the .pla format.

It's been a while since I played with Rockbox, but if I recall correctly the format of the playlists you create on the device (in RB) is .m3u8. I think though that you can create .m3u format playlists off the player and it will read them OK.

 

Someone is bound to correct me if I'm worng wrong on this.
