I bought a Spotify premium subscription because it has some music I was struggling to find for sale elsewhere.
However, migrating my existing collection to the Spotify player is proving to be impossible. I'm trying to migrate a ~13,000 song playlist, and the player just won't have a bar of it. It becomes unresponsive when I attempt to add "local files" to a playlist, and scrolling through local files causes various undesirable behaviour.
Is there a way to, instead, add my Spotify playlist to a better-designed player, such as Foobar? I've tried using the foo_input_spotify plugin, but when I try to add playlist URIs, it simply hangs on "processing" endlessly.
EDIT: It seems there's an arbitrary limit to the amount of songs you can have on your playlist, so this is doubly important... I'm honestly quite surprised by how poor this software is, I thought this was the standard for music streaming?
EDIT EDIT: Just to head off the possible misunderstanding, I'm aware that you can't download Spotify tracks for use in other programs. I wish to stream Spotify tracks through my premium account using a different program.
