Binary plists are the files that Apple products use to store information. The easiest way to view them is to convert them to xml.
The program plutil is native to OSX (as of 10.2), however it is also included when iTunes is installed on a Windows PC.
plutil on a Windows PC is stored in: Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support Which can be added to the PATH in Environmental variables so plutil can be run from anywhere
To convert Binary plists to XML run the command: plutil -convert xml1 file.plist
