How to export playlist text from Spotify to itunes ?

Hey ! 

 

I have a trouble that I can't resolve and I hope you can help.

A year ago, I have imported all my playlist from itunes to spotify and it works great in Spotify. Don't need anymore to use iTunes on my mac.

But now I have a problem with iTunes. My playlists are still there but they're all empty of songs !! I would like to find a solution to export all the informations from my Spotify playlist to import it in iTunes. Of course, all those files are on my computer still years and spotify was only a player. So I hope there's a way to copy/paste all the links to my files into iTunes, any idea ?I don't want to manually recreate hundreds of playlist.

 

Thanks

 

Brice

If you still have all the songs you might want to search for an "iTunes Music Library.xml" file  (or something along those lines) on your computer.  If you have that and it has the state of your iTunes library before you lost all of your playlists you can restore it using iTunes > File > Library > Import Playlist... and then selecting that file.

 

If that doesn't work, maybe this thread and this post will get you started.

There's no way to automate this process as far as I know.

So, let me begin with wishing all a happy and prosperous new year!

 

That done, here is my issue, I created a wondeful playlist, 500+ tracks,  in Spotify that i just want to export to an app that will let me burn them to disk,  Such as I Tunes, Winamp, Real Player, Nero, I do not really care which app that I use! but it seems to me that if I can inport a complete Playlist created from any of these apps, then I should, conversely, be able to Export, the same type of data from the Spotify platform.

 

Yes, I am aware that I can export the data as text. but that is really not adressing the issue, is it? As that means that I still have to re-create the playlist in another app.

 

I love Spotify, but why is this even an issue????....

 

Two-way import and export of any given playlist is an option that I would like to see. Soon.

 

Or give me a burn to disk option and I am equally satisfied.

 

Does anyone have a funtional workaround that does not involve a re-build of an existing playlist created on Spotify???..

I'm assuming if you want to burn something to CD that the playlist is made up entirely of local files you own?

Hi there, happy new year!

 

Continuing with this subject..

 

So i love and use spotify a lot., it has been my audio producer in the last 2 years. Vive got 2 Tb of music on my pc and thanks to Spotify ive managed to create some great playlist that most of the musics in them i own. 

 

Now i would like to export these playlist to my ipod to listen to them, or at least to listen to the music i own in these playlist. 

 

How can can i export the playlists to my itunes account and then to my ipod? I really dont want to creat them one by one all of them.  

 

thank you for the help, have looked and looked and cant find. Please not that i dont want to export music that i dont have, i want to be able to import the list of the musics to another platform since i own the musics.

 

Thanks!

Unfortunately I'm not aware of any way to export those playlists from Spotify easily, however if you have an iPod Classic, nano, shuffle or mini with the old standard USB connector (not the lightning connector) you can use Spotify to sync your iPod directly (although you would need to wipe the content and resync it all if you are already synced via iTunes):

hmm ok that is a way. 

 

Then what i can do is, create some playlist with genius of itunes and export these playlists to spotify, since i own the music that shouldn´t be a problem, so that i can insert both type of playlists in the ipod (generated in spotify and itunes)

 

how can i export my itunes playlists to spotify?

 

one last thing, the musics i dont own in the playlists when i try to sync spotify to ipod what will happen to them? they simply wont show up, am i right?

 

thanks in advance for such a fast reply!
