MXPL File Extension

Have a problem opening a .MXPL file? We collect information about file formats and can explain what MXPL files are. Additionally we recommend software suitable for opening or converting such files.

What is the .MXPL file type?

The .mxpl filename extension represents the MAGIX Playlist (.mxpl) file type and format used with MAGIX MP3 deluxe MX, a commercial all-in-one music organizer, converter, and player from MAGIX Software GmbH. MXPL is MAGIX's own XML-based playlist format, similar to XSPF.

The .mxpl file is a MAGIX playlist. It is a Unicode (UTF-16) XML file providing detailed information (name, location, ID3 tags, etc.) about each track included in the playlist. MAGIX MP3 deluxe MX saves its playlists in the "%UserProfile%\Music\Playlists" folder and registers its own association for the .mxpl file type. The software additionally allows to export its MXPL playlists to other formats such as .m3u and .xspf. Since .mxpl files are just lists of files, they do not contain any live multimedia data.

Besides MAGIX MP3 deluxe MX, .mxpl playlists can also be opened in other MAGIX software such as MAGIX Video Pro and are recognized by a third-party multimedia player named Mufin Player (discontinued). Apart from that, any .mxpl file can be directly viewed as XML in a Unicode-friendly text editor.
