comment How can you appropriately use “延长”?
Your understanding is correct and your sentence is fine, but it's not the most natural thing to say. Since 等 is transitive verb which can be followed by the time to wait, in real life scenario people would simply say '我们要等两个多小时' instead of '我们要等的时间要延长到两个多小时', just like in English you would say "we'll have to wait for two hours" instead of "the duration of the time which we'll have to wait is extended to two hours".

Concept localization is common in the translations from that generation. It used to be seen as a skill instead of mistakes.

comment how do you say “Playlist”
To add one thing, before there were computers, the word 播放列表 did not exist but 歌单 was used to refer to the program sheet for song performances and/or the "menu" in karaoke places.
