Hello,

 

I have songs on my PC that are not on spotify servers.

 

But, i wish to listen them elsewhere. for exemple, on my PC at work.

 

I saw that's possible to import tracks from personnal libraries, as shown here:

http://www.spotify.com/fr/about/local-music/

 

But at home i do not see the button "import music"...

 

how to do ?

No. But you can use a Dropbox for this.

Click the local files list, under collection.   Then simply drag and drop what files you want access to.

If the track you have added can be linked to a track in the Spotify catalogue, then anyone looking at your playlist will see the linked song, otherwise it will be unplayable outside your computer.

Looks like Spotify pretty much automatically imports music, at least from your Music and iTunes folders:

What about .ogg files?  My entire music library (with only a couple exceptions) is on .ogg format.  I can see some music a friend uploaded to my music folder (she used .mp3), but not the music I just put in there (.ogg).  Just wondering.
