How does the "Now Playing" playlist work?

Hi everyone,

I dunno if this is an allowed question, but I've been working on a small media player for personal use for some very specific applications and I'm trying to base everything on SQLite like MediaMonkey. However, I am at a total loss for the Now Playing list. I can't figure out how to keep the items order, especially after doing SELECTs to refresh the view.

Looking into the MM database I see the "Views" table that has a "Now Playing" entry but the data in "View is just numbers and letters. Some kind of hex code or encryption I guess?

Again, sorry if this isn't allowed. Just trying to follow through on some inspiration from my favorite media player.
