XML Shareable Playlist Format (XSPF), pronounced "spiff", is a next-generation playlist format for digital media such as songs in Vorbis or MP3 format. This wiki is for developers.

The mime type for XSPF playlists is application/xspf+xml.

Spec is at http://www.xspf.org/specs/

Supporting applications

These are applications which support XSPF and have not yet been added to the main applications list:

"We added: A Scrubber/Shuttle so the lister can move the playhead to any point along the song. Time Remaining, Elapsed Time Played, Genre of Song, Origin/Location (city) of artist. Site specific stuff which my not be of interest to others is: Review song link: we were adding as a layer to the player but, it got too large and ugly. Buy song link. And a bunch of nice styling/skin tweaks."

Limited supporting applications

  • foo_xspf - writes xspf files only with location. So the goal of playlist sharing between friends is not achieved.

Non supporting applications listed as supporting

  • http://php4xspf.berlios.de/ - From their page: Note: The classes are stil in alpha and do not incorporate ... even the possibility to parse a XSPF file.
