Resurrecting an old topic here.
Ron…did you ever look at this at all?
I’ve just recently started learning a bit about XSPF. It seems to be gaining some popularity as an open/portable format for playlists.
First advantage here, is that it might open things up for people wanting to get flash-based content from the web through Firefly. (e.g. Magnatune previews, maybe Pandora?, Last.FM?).
But I also think it might help me solve some of my cross-platform (i.e. Windows-Linux) issues with .m3u playlists….since it specifies things with a URI syntax that’s not specific to any particular type of file system.
It’s pending the xml parser fixes that I need to support wmp playlists, too.
