See the playlist/trackList/track/info element in the draft > spec at http://gonze.com/xspf/xspf-draft-2.html It looks pretty good after a first read. I have a couple of questions: There are a couple of references containing xspf://. Are you planning to use this pseudo-protocol when referring to XSPF playlists? I hope not, it'd be the same mistake as serving RSS over a feed:// protocol. You're just serving XML over http so it should use the http:// protocol. :o) I would like to see the license element available to tracks as well as the playlist. It's pretty uninteresting to know which license the playlist is released under. I'm not even sure a playlist is copyrightable (under Danish law anyway) - I doubt it constitutes a 'work'. What's important though is the license of each track. The other big thing I'm lacking is hyperlink references. I'm all about hyperlinks (that's what makes www different from all other media). I would like links under license, playlist author (scratch that - it's already there), track author and definately links in the annotation. Keeping the annotation in text/plain is not cool. Having it in text/html (well, application/xhtml+xml really) would be much nicer - simply for the sake of links. All in all I think it's a fantastic work. :o) I could see myself using this as a videoblog archive pulling information as needed. Or maybe for single entries (a playlist with only one item). As I said in the other e-mail it'd be very easy to make an HTML based videoblog player with XSPF.
