Playlists Location on Android

anybody knows where the playlists are stored on Android devices?
I'd like to edit them via file manager/text editor as it's way quicker than inside the app.

The application container. In an internal SQLite based format. It's also not exactly pure SQLite, as it's just using SQLite as a container, and storing binary blobs of metadata per row.

I have hunted to find these many times.  Any way to export these though, like for a phone migration or easier PC editing??

I may have successfully retrieved some VLC playlist XML files from it's subfolder under the Android one, so I would want it that easily accessible.

As an alternative, I have been making screenshots to construct an m3u8 text-based playlist file using relative paths to the root of my music library in a playlist folder to avoid this trouble again :(.
