there is a difference between xmms and winamp playlists. xmms uses absolute file paths for it's playlists. winamp uses relative file paths. xmms can handle winamp playlists, but winamp won't be able to handle xmms playlists. i think it's most likely your player doesn't know how to handle playlists from xmms. just a guess though.
