My first instinct would be to use a script/batch file to read the
playlist and use the relevant command line based on what is read
from the playlist textfile.  It should be pretty simple if the number
of expected file extensions is small and you know in advance or you
could simply prepend each line with V or P for video or picture.

This might be the better option anyway as you could also add in
a field for the display time for the images.
