My Question or Issue

I often listen to audiobook that are saved localy on my PC, now I want to switch from winamp to spotify, the problem Im facing is that I need to get the files somehow in the right playlists in the right order. Doing that manually from the Local files in the library in an absolute pain. Can Spotify automaticly crate Playlist form folders and then sort them by filename (not title), or, even better can I import my m3u files that Im already usig for Winamp?

Hey there @Speeter_,


Thanks for the post.

 

Unfortunately you can't import m3u local files into Spotify and the app can't automatically sort them into playlists.

 

You should be able to sort a playlist containing local files by Date Added/ Title/ Album etc. but this will depend on the metadata of your tracks.

 

You can learn more about how local files work on Spotify here.

 

Cheers.
