FR Server- XML Shareable Playlist Format XSPF


Recommended Posts


As MBS moves to standards it would be great to add support for XSPF.

From Wikipedia

"XML Shareable Playlist Format (XSPF), pronounced spiff, is an XML-based playlist format for digital media, sponsored by the Xiph.Org Foundation."


Specs can be found at http://xspf.org/


The spec has all the xml goodness and supports extensions, so the MBS team can add stuff as needed. XSPF is supported by VLC, Here is a VLC link to their XSPF usage with the extensions they use http://wiki.videolan.org/XSPF


I realize m3u is probably more common, but can't seem to find a governing body that manages it. There are pros and cons to either format I am sure.


Thanks for consideration!


If you have VLC and like Classic British Rock as an example give.... never mind seems I can't upload a xspf file or even a file with a .txt extension...........?


This upload failed"


Anyway trust me it is pretty cool.. http://www.classicrocklounge.com/ Live stream- VLC shows the track playing info
