Please provide a way to download and restore playlists (not the audio tracks themselves, but the list of tracks).

Hi all,

Just a quick question; is it possible to export playlists from Deezer to another platform, or even in list form in a notepad or word document or whatever?

Cheers!

Hi .
The only way to export playlist is using tool like the below . I'm not sure it's allowing export the playlist to plan text but you can try . Usually it's for transferring playlists from one service to another (i.e Deezer to Spotify)

Thank you, I'll look into that today! But there's no official way using only Deezer?

Soundiiz can convert playlists from Deezer to other streaming sites, but it looks as if they only display certain Deezer playlists that Soundiiz has generated which means that it is a Premium feature and not free. I don't see my own Deezer playlists in Soundiiz either which is a bit strange.

There are three other tools which can do the job: MOOVAL, Playlist Converter and STAMP. The last one is not free either or only for 10 songs per session.

@MrGloverGlover, there's no way to just export a playlist to an excel sheet or word document. I haven't heard of this feedback so far, meaning is probably not something a lot of users need. But you are more than welcome to add this to our idea forum so that other users can vote for it 🙂

Hi @Hoo Boo, can you explain this further? What do you mean by that? We have a download and also a restore option.

Anja, many thanks for your answer: could you please explain where are these options located?
It seems I can't find them anywhere:



I'm looking for a way to get a list of tracks in, say, text form from a given playlist. From the example pictured, something like:
1 Alone The Don Ellis Orchestra Electric Bath 05:31
2 Stoney Street Amon Tobin Bricolage 05:53
3 Death Wish (Main Title) Herbie Hancock The Herbie Hancock Box 06:10
etc.

@Hoo Boo, sorry I guess I missunderstood your feedback! I've merged both topics now so that other users can easily find it and vote for your idea! 🙂
Being able to trace changes to a playlist (like e.g. you can track the change history of any Google Drive document) would be SO very welcome!

sorry but this sounds outrageous, in about 3 months the EU dataportability in GDPR will force you to comply with porting data to other competitors.

aside of that I must say not having a simple way of taking your tracks to a new company is another disappointment with Deezer. So the only method is to use a third party to extract all of the track names. Crazy.
Transfer your tracks and playlists to Apple Music, Spotify, Google Music and more for free with MusConv tool - http://www.MusConv.com

Hi there, I don't fully understand this feedback. The initial feedback was to be able to easily create an excel sheet with all tracks listed.

But what you are mentioning is to be able to transfer music from one streaming service to a competitor, which is possible. There are several services (some mentioned here already) which allow you to do that.

If I misunderstood your comment, would you mind to clarify? I'm happy to pass feedback on to the tech team 🙂

That seems to have been a bug, now I see my own Deezer playlists again besides the ones that Soundiiz reads from the Deezer API, see this screenshot:

https://soundiiz.com/webapp/playlists



The green ones are mine and can be converted to other streaming sites for free, but exporting them to a CSV spreadsheet file or other format is a Premium feature, also using the yellow ones that Soundiiz generated from the Deezer web API.

The point here is that Deezer should provide an easy way for users to download their data. It is not about competitors. I also want this feature. If it was not for the GDPR regulation the lack of this feature would make me reconsider my subscription. I not only want to download my playlists, but also my favourites and history. In other words, all my data.

https://www.eugdpr.org/key-changes.html: "GDPR introduces data portability - the right for a data subject to receive the personal data concerning them, which they have previously provided in a 'commonly use and machine readable format' and have the right to transmit that data to another controller. "

Still 75 days to go, can't wait...

Hi there 😃, my first post!

I want to start this off by saying that there are a few 'Deezers' out there that have moved from one platform to this, but do not want to use paid services to export playlists from old platforms.

What if we can have an "import from CSV" feature that can do that for us? Provided we have a CSV file from our old streaming service and vice versa.

En example would be:
"Track ID,Track Name,Artist Name,Album Name
77326600,Know About We,Chase & Status,Tribe
77497562,Gammy Elbow,DJ Zinc,Full House
67038116,Splash (feat. Coco) [Rusko Remix],Sub Focus,Splash (feat. Coco)"

If it is not possible then that is cool; there are other ways, but built in could make it hella easy for some people. 😃

Hey there, I moved your topic to this existing one, take a look 🙂
The service: https:// http://www.playlist-converter.net/ can be used to convert playlists, as mentioned in reddit
here: https://www.reddit.com/r/deezer/comments/3jj1j0/is_there_any_way_to_export_playlist_to_a_file_not/
There is no need to enter your Deezer's account details so it looks safe.
The playlist link can be obtain from the Playlist -> Share function in Deezer.
Good luck,
R
