To add a playlist file:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /ADD "C:\some path\to\Any folder\playlist.m3u"

To add a playlist file and start playing:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /ADD "C:\some path\to\Any folder\playlist.m3u" && "C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /PLAY

To see all command line options:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\winamp.exe" /?

I think DrOs time restore plugin has similar functions as well...

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

My method is this:

Playlist pinned down to Taskbar of Windows 7 / 10

And the playlist do not list file but whole [main] folders

I can also place shortcuts to playlist in favorite Toolbars of FreeCommander.

Easy, reliable and quick

And I bet there is a way co configure those FC shocrtuts in such a way that I could have new instances of Winamp opening with predefined playlist. One could also try to write a BAT or PS1 script for it - and the pin it to Taskbar or place it in FreeCommander o other file-manager
