My Question or Issue

I have been trying to acquire every recording and every track performed by my favourite artist and some of them are only available on Youtube as they were either never released on any other format or are so rare now that they are almost impossible to get hold of.


I have had no problems up to now getting these mp3s from Youtube to appear in my local files and thus add to my playlist however there are 2 tracks that just will not show up.  I've tried everything I can think of.  The weirdest part is they are 2 versions of the same song!  I tried changing the title to see if that was the issue but to no avail.


Any ideas how I fix it?

Hey @Monskin,


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


Keep in mind that only officially legal files are allowed to be uploaded and played as local files on Spotify. In other words, files or downloads from illegal sources are generally not permitted and if the source of the files is YouTube there might be some issues with this. You'll find all the info regarding local files on Spotify here if you'd like to know more. It'd be great if you'd find some official sources for such tracks, even if they're seemingly very rare.  


Hope you'll find this info useful. Let us know if there's anything else you'd like us to help with!
