Playlistify is one of those unfortunately rare products that does exactly what the name suggests.
That’s right, Playlistify “playlistifies” your playlists. As creator Roeland Landegent explains in the video above, Playlistify allows you to take lists of songs from anywhere – iTunes, Winamp, Last.fm, any XML-based songlist and convert it to a playable list of songs.
The website, playlistify.org simply processes the songs, and passes the list to Spotify, so unfortunately this means that Playlistify is essentially useless in the US and Canada.
Spotify is available in Finland, Norway, France, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom, so for now the rest us will have to stick to manually searching and downloading music.
Obviously the service includes all kinds of baked in social media and sharing capabilities so you can create and share playlists. All in all this seems like a fun, cool, easy to use service.
Eventually the music industry will wake up to find itself in the middle of the 21st century, outdated and irrelevant, and perhaps then the whole world will be able to enjoy simple, unique services like this.
