I was wondering if the playlist is anything I was thinking it was? I was thinking you can start the movie from there but I was also thinking you can use DVDxml from places like Is this true for the wdtv live player as well? I know you can use it on an HTPC.

You can certainly start a movie from a playlist (I have no idea what the other stuff you are mentioning is).

I am wanting to use the xml which will show a coverart and breif description of the movie. This will work on htpc’s but trying to see if this will do the same for the wd player.

Not without third party firmware.
