XSPF is the XML format for sharing playlists.

  • It is portable. You should be able to carry a playlist from one place to another.
  • It is well-engineered. Most playlist formats have bugs that make life harder for programmers and users.
  • It is free (as in liberty) and open. No proprietary lock-in.
