Returning to Spotify: how do I import my Rdio collection?

Ever since I've heard Spotify revamped its interface, I've decided to come back to Spotify. Problem is that after about a year of using Rdio, I have grown quite a big album collection, and I would like to import it into Spotify without having to do it manually. Has anybody found a soluti

Soundiiz didn't work for me at first. It wouldn't see my spotify playlists. I learned that if you just keep pressing the power button on spotify eventually it see's them. Alternatively if you just keep trying to export a playlist from rdio to spotify eventually it works. 

I also logged out of both services and back in after signing up with soundiiz.

I built this tool to move albums from Rdio to Spotify. It's under active development and I'm adding new features when the requests come in.

Did the job for me, I had to log in and out of Spotify to see the updates. Only took a few min. Really appreciate the tool. Glad to contribute with donation. Hope it's enough for a coffee and a pastry 🙂

Ivy will import playlists in a few formats but you're going to have to find some way to get your Rdio playlists into a form it will accept. 

Thanks, I knew about Ivy, however that's not what I'm looking for. In Rdio you can save either albums into your collections, or playlists. I rarely use playlists (hence why I moved away from Spotify originally), so I need a way to import my albums collection into Spotify (possibly as albums rather than a huge playlist).

 

Thanks for your feedback anyway! 🙂

Thanks for this. You saved me what could potentially be a week's worth of copy pasting 🙂

sadly, this app seems to be having some problems and doesn't work for me to connect my rdio.

I just created a script that will do this. It requires you to install node.js and run a script though. Check it out on github: https://github.com/MattMur/rdio-spotify-artistfollow 

 

The one limitation is that its not completely automated. You have to do a lot of clicking... unfortunatlly Spotify doesn't have web API to directly let you follow an artist programatically. However they do have "follow" widgets. So my script basically compares your artists on Rdio, finds matches with Spotify, and then populates page with their "follow" widgets.

Cool script, but I'd just like to point at the "Following" an artist isn't the same as importing their songs into your "My Music"...

The neutrine.com method worked very well for me. My Rdio account has around 2000 tracks that are favorited and/or downloaded. Of those, neutrine found 1440 and was able to sync all but 155 with Spotify. As far as I'm concerned, that's close enough. A word of warning, though. The web application has a really odd interface. You have to click the transfer buttons more than once, as if you were starting over again after confirming the connections to Rdio and Spotify. At first, I thought it wasn't working, but I kept clicking and it finally got the job done.

 

Thank you for the tip.

I tried this...but couldn't find the imported rdio playlist anywhere on Spotify...where do they get imported on Spotify?

What steps did you actively complete?

Mooval also seems to work for this task, takes a long time to analyse your Rdio collection first though.

This was the only one that worked for me: http://soundiiz.com

The website offered as SOLUTION didn't work for me. You might want to give spotificator.com a try if you have the same problem. I've tried it once, but it errored out on me.

What problem did you run into?

 

I tried going to your suggested site and it's just a link farm.

@damagedave use the planned parenthood link on the site 🙂

Seems to be running well! Good job! I'll donate to Planned Parenthood. With Rdio closing this made for a smooth move!
