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.
