Exporting playlist in XSPF format

Post by NightInAgharta » Fri Feb 23, 2007 11:47 am

Actually MM exports playlists only in M3U format. Indeed it's good for almost every players around but I've found the need to have them in XSPF format to use in a flash web player for my web site.
XSPF format is an open source XML playlist format. Specification are here:
http://www.xspf.org/.
It's used in some application (like Yahoo music player) but expecially in almost every flash mp3 players.
Can MM staff add this feature?
Of course they can.

Actually MediaMonkey can export to other formats already through scripts. I don't think a script for the XSPF format is available so you can try to code the script, modify an existing script or request one. You can check out the Scripts and Components forum for more.

PS. I will move this post to that forum.

XSPF format Playlist

Post by NightInAgharta » Mon Feb 26, 2007 5:52 am

:D :D :D :D THANKS!!! It works great!
But... as I am hard to please, I would appreciate you could do another modifies to your scritp:
i have my music in the foldet c:\musica\<artist>\<album>\<song>
your script correctly create the XSPF using that pathname.
But since I have to move the songs online and use the playlist.xspf in my web site the pathname of course changes to http://<mywebsite>/<path>/<song>
Can you add a prompt where to add the base pathname and use that path for the generated playlist.xspf ? :oops:

GRAZIE!!!!!
