        works better. (And sometimes not.)</p>

<title>File types</title>

<p>Streamtuner2 understands different playlist formats as used by various
directory services and audio players.</p>

<section>
<title>.M3U files</title>
<info><desc>MP3-URL playlist file.</desc></info>
<p>M3U files are one of the simplest playlist types. They're often used by desktop audio players.</p>
<p>The MIME type of these files is <sys>audio/x-mpegurl</sys> and often contain just a list of URLs:</p>
<code mime="audio/x-mpegurl">
#M3U
http://123.45.67.189:8222/
http://123.45.67.222:7555/
</code>
</section>

<section>
<title>.PLS files</title>
<info><desc>Playlist file format.</desc></info>
<p>Playlist files often have the extension <file>.pls</file>. It's the primary station
stream link format of SHOUTcast, and was popularized by WinAmp.</p>
<p>The MIME type of these files is <sys>audio/x-scpls</sys> and they often look like: </p>
<code mime="audio/x-scpls">
[playlist]
numberofentries=1
File1=http://123.45.67.189:8222
Title1=(#1 - 555/2000) radio station Xyz - top 100 - all the hitzez
Length1=-1
</code>
</section>

<section>
<title>.JSON files</title>
<info><desc>JavaScript Object-Notation</desc></info>
<p>JSON is a data representation format derived from Javascript (the browser embedded
programming language for websites). It's commonly used because it provides a
nice balance between terse and exact data represantion, while still being
readable.</p>
<p>Streamtuner2 uses it to store all of its configuration and radio station data files.
The MIME type of these files is <sys>application/json</sys> and they often look like: </p>
<code mime="application/json">
[
  {
    "title": "Station title..",
    "url": "http://1.2.3.4:8000/",
    "homepage": "http://radio.org/",
  },
  { "title": "second" }
]
</code>
<p>It's also the basis for JSPF, the JSON variant of XSPF.</p>
</section>

<section>
<title>.XSPF files</title>
<info><desc>Xiph Shareable Playlist File</desc></info>
<p>The Xiph foundation manages the Ogg streaming format, Vorbis and other
codecs, and introduced XML shareable playlist format "XSPF". They're
 hard to look at and not very widespread. On the upside they
contain more meta information than any other playlist store.</p>
<p>As MIME type <sys>application/xspf+xml</sys> and they often look like: </p>
<code mime="application/xspf+xml"><![CDATA[
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<playlist version="1" xmlns="http://xspf.org/ns/0/">
  <trackList>
    <track>
      <title>Top 500 hitz station XY</title>
      <annotation>Paris</annotation>
      <location>http://123.24.67.189:8222</location>
      <info>Pop, Rock, Future-Jazz</info>
      <homepage>http://example.com/</homepage>
    </track>
  </trackList>
</playlist>
]]></code>
<p>A variation of this format exists as JSPF, using JSON (yay!) instead of XML.</p>
</section>

<section>
<title>Uncommon formats</title>
<p>Various other file formats are in existence, but not widely used:</p>
<list>
  <item>
  <title>SMIL</title>
  <p>Synchronized Multimedia Integration Language is a HTML-style
  audio/video/stream-link format.</p>
  </item>
  <item>
  <title>ASX</title>
  <p>Is a Windows-only format, a variation of SMIL. There's an abhorrent
  number of similar formats, like .ASF and .WPL, basically doing the same
  thing. Nobody knows why.</p>
  </item>
  <item>
  <title>QTL</title>
  <p>QuickTime Link files are also a variation of SMIL</p>
  </item>
  <item>
  <title>B4S</title>
  <p>.B4S is a failed WinAmp XML playlist format.</p>
  </item>
  <item>
  <title>.desktop</title>
  <p>*.desktop files can contain just one link.</p>
  </item>
  <item>
  <title>.url</title>
  <p>*.url (Internet Shortcut) files also are single-link containers.</p>
  </item>
</list>

<link href="http://fossil.include-once.org/streamtuner2/wiki/Playlist+format+support">Playlist format support</link>

<p class="p">Some audio players open a second instance when you actually want to switch radios.
	In this case it's a common workaround to write <span class="code">pkill vlc ; vlc %u</span> instead,
	which ends the previous player process and starts it anew.
        For VLC there's however also the <span class="code">--one-instance</span> option, which sometimes
        works better. (And sometimes not.)</p>

<p class="p">JSON is a data representation format derived from Javascript (the browser embedded

nice balance between terse and exact data represantion, while still being
readable.</p>
<p class="p">Streamtuner2 uses it to store all of its configuration and radio station data files.
