On my windows 10 (chrome) setup, special 8 bit characters (such as "üöäèéà") don't work. They are saved as 16bit (?) characters in the xml playlist, which will not get recogized when importing to spotify. They still don't get properly recognized if replaced by 7 bit (ae oe ue) or 8 bit (ä ö ü, standard windows charset) characters.
Unportify is also not working for me. It scrolls until the back of the playlist (speed 100, 50, 25) but after that does not offer any file to download or another message from the script bums up. what am i doing wrong?
Windows 10 - Chrome 52
TheDegree0 script few posts above me worked and i generated a file. but this file does not work properly with the importation website Unportify provides. just stuck in the importation process on first try. second try i get the mesg that importation was successful, but just 2 out of 75 songs were found on spotify and added to the playlist.
Works like a charm on Windows 10 Pro with Chrome 53 (actually it missed 2 songs out of 214 but hey). If I connect Unportify to Spotify, will it steal my CC info, run away with my girlfriend and sell my children into slavery?
Glad it worked, the 2 songs it missed might be duplicates, some songs are the same but in different albums.
On the privacy part, Unportify only requests access to public account information, that permission is required in order to create the public playlist. The only information it saves is the IDs of the songs and who imported what.
It saves who imported which songs so I can have a basic idea of how many people have used it and how many return to import again.
About the song IDs, it saves them so it doesn't have to request them again for future users, so by using it, you're helping everyone else! :)
I'll be releasing the code soon for the importer, I don't have much free time so I didn't get to do it yet.
