A JSPF file is a music playlist saved in JavaScript Object Notation (JSON), a text-based data interchange format. It contains playlist information, which includes the playlist title and creator, location of included .MP3 files, and the title, creator, and albums of each track in the playlist. JSPF files are similar to .M3U files and they do not contain actual audio data.

The JSPF file is a variation of the .XSPF file. Instead of using XML tags, the JSPF file is saved in the JSON structure, which doesn't require tags making it more compact than XML.

Important: Since the JSPF file is saved in plain text you can rename the extension to "txt" and open it in any text editor. You can also convert an XSPF file to a JSPF file using the XSPF to JSPF Parser.
