XSPF: XML Shareable Playlist Format Logo

XSPF Home

XSPF is the XML format for sharing playlists.

  • It is free and open -- No proprietary lock-in.
  • It is portable -- You should be able to send a playlist to your friend and have it work.
  • It is well-engineered -- Most playlist formats get the easy things wrong.
Unlike M3U
XSPF is XML.
Unlike SMIL
XSPF is simple.
Unlike ASX
XSPF is open.
