Pasting song links in playlist no longer works

See https://community.spotify.com/t5/Desktop-Mac/Pasting-song-links-in-playlist-no-longer-works-Are-you-...

 

 

So I followed the same guide to randomize my playlist which is now empty and I have no way of readding my songs?  

 

I see the previous topic is for MAC and I have a windows PC.

 

Please note I want to readd my playlist INSIDE of spotify not share and copy OUTSIDE of spotify like the solution in that Topic suggests.

Hey @cantatos,

 

Just check this one:

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Spotify-Answers/Can-I-transfer-playlists-over-to-a-new-account/ta-p...

The only difference is that it won't get saved to your library right away, only if you do it. I explained that on my former post :)

 

If you still need help, just ping me ;)

Appreciate the reply but a great time is everything I dont have at the moment... 200+ songs have been removed from the playlist because of a guide that doesn't work anymore because of restrictions. Now I have to readd them all manually 1 by 1. I honestly hate spotify at the moment.

 

The playlist is not deleted the Songs in the playlist are, I need to readd links like this in to the playlist, I followed this guide https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ibBkjoLO4w

 

All my songs are now in .ttps:/open.spotify.com/track/ format and I have no way of copying them back, only opening them one by one via the url and readd them.

272 songs manually added by opening the url for each song..

 

Lesson learned.

 

If only the app was more userfriendly..

 

Another big issue is when you are listening to a song on your android phone you can add it to your playlist but not remove it, so you have to browse through your long list and look for it.

Hey @cantatos,

 

Sorry for the inconvenience!

That was not a feature of Spotify. You can still perform it though:
1. You select the whole playlist
2. You do a Ctrl+C (windows) on it

3. You open any text lines randomizer like this one:
     https://www.browserling.com/tools/random-lines
4. You paste in the box, you click randomize

5. You copy the list of text lines

6. You go back to Spotify and empty your playlist then you do a Ctrl+V

7. Now you have the playlist randomized.

 

Hope it helps for the next time :)

Hi LorenXK,

 

Thank you for the reply and I appreciate it.

 

I calmed down a lot after last night, manually adding every song one by one via the internet is not fun for 272 songs.

 

Unfortunatly the app does not care about any CTRL+V command anywhere, it does not work.

I have tried to CTRL-V as if my life depended on it.

In the Playlist, outside the playlist, with 1 songs left with an empty playlist but no CTRL-V does absolutely not work in the windows Spotify Ap.

 

There is also no edit feature on any song in the playlist as some people suggest in the MAC forum, maybe that's a mac app feature we don't have? You can only remove or add songs in the playlist from the app itself and not from any outside text source.

 

If you say it works and I'm doing it wrong please show me how because I have tried it all before manually re-adding every single song.

Hey @cantatos,

 

I can confirm it works!

You drag a playlist on your desktop or wherever you like. 

Sing in with the other account and just drag the file that was created from dragging the playlsit to desktop into the Playlist section in Spotify.

The playlist with all the songs will reappear! Just tap on the 3 dots to Save it to Your Library or just select all the songs CTRL+A and add them to a new playlist!

This was done on Windows, it seems not to work on macOS. Will test that out again though. If you need help with your Mac you should post your question in the Mac board in the Community

 

Hope it helps :)

Right so dragging a file (like output.txt) from desktop to App in playlist will work?

My goodness really?
