Well, i have a youtube channel where i would like to upload the musics to the spotify, the thing is that i have to get this music stored on my computer or it will disappear. isn't there a way to keep music on my spotify playlist after i deleted them from my pc?

Hey @hearingmind

 

Unfortunately this is currently not possible.

Right now the way it works is that you are able to import songs from your computer to listen to if you can't find them on Spotify. The only downside is that these files have to stay on your computer or you can't play them in the Spotify app.

 

You can vote for this idea here:

This idea from users is asking Spotify to let users upload their songs to their Spotify account so that they don't have to have the files on their computer.

If you are an artist looking to get your music on Spotify, you will need to go through a distributor such as DistroKid:

I wonder if big music youtubers have all of their music stored on their pc

If a song is not on Spotify, it can be added to a playlist as a local file. If it's added to a playlist as a local file, only people that also have the local file on their computer can hear it. Local files are just a way that allows you to listen to your downloaded MP3s with convenience alongside the music in Spotify's catalog.

 

However, if a song has been distributed to Spotify as a release, then anyone can listen to the song without a local file because it is in Spotify's catalog. https://artists.spotify.com/guide
