Where does Spotify store data for playlists locally?

Where does Spotify store playlist data, e.g., how many tracks, song titles, artists, etc., locally? Is it stored in a specific file/format that I could easily parse? It'd be nice to be able to extract data from my playlists using a simple XML or JSON parser (depending on the format) vs. having to use the Web API, especially when I'm not connected to the internet (which, believe it or not, happens from time-to-time).

 

I am using a Windows PC, but this type of knowledge would be nice to have for Linux/Mac if it's significantly different.

Hello @FuneralFrog,


You can check the contents of the following folder :

 

C:\Users\YourWindowsUser\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Users\SpotifyUser-user

C:\Users\YourWindowsUser\AppData\Local\Spotify\Users\Spotify-user

 

Where YourWindowsUser is your windows user and SpotifyUser is your spotify account username ( you can find it here ).

 

 For everything else, there is Web API :)

Sorry for the delayed response; I'm still not seeing the playlists locally. This is what I'm seeing when I go to

C:\Users\YourWindowsUser\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Users\SpotifyUser-user

:

When I go to

C:\Users\YourWindowsUser\AppData\Local\Spotify\Users\Spotify-user, I see the following:

Are the playlists stored in one of the files above?
