Copy "local files" on CD / USB Stick from playlist window

Status: Inactive Idea
by ccccoc on ‎10-03-2012 08:10 PM

Here is the problem: if you have a playlist full of local files, and you want to burn it on a CD, put it on your friend's USB stick etc., you cannot just drag and drop the songs into a folder on your desktop, you cannot copy the files, nothing. It is possible from "local files", which is nice, but then you have to search manually for every single song.

 

The solution: allow an option to copy all local files in a playlist, in order to be able to paste it into a folder on your desktop, or USB Stick. Since it is already possible in "local files", it shouldn't be too complicated to implement that in the playlists. 

 

Possible objection: the drag and drop option in playlists copies the spotify Link into the folder on your desktop. This is useful as well and should be maintained. But highlighting all songs in a playlist, and right-click for "copy local files to clipboard" can be added without interfering with the existing setting.

 

Maybe there are not many people with that problem, but I think it makes it much more convenient for people like me. So please, even if you don't use it, vote for this idea! :womanvery-happy: 

 

Thanks a lot, c

I love to use spotify for as much of my music listening as I can. I would even prefer to have it as my ONLY audio player. But I can't. If I want to burn a mix CD I either have to use the very difficult method mentioned above, or open something like iTunes and make a burnable playlist in there (and let me tell you, I hate iTunes!!!). Please add this functionallity so I can finally remove this discusting iTunes.

Same here. I was stupid enough to download Spotify Premium, having the idea that I then could burn a CD or load a USB stick with a Spotify playlist. Since this appears to be impossible, Spotify is useless to me.

I'm off!
