Over a period of time I have assembled mulitple playlists. I would like to export the songs of these playlists into corresponding folders. I have tried looking into windows media player but couldn't find any such option.

So you mean you want to physically move the songs into separate folders based on the entries in a set of playlists? This should be something that it easy enough to script with AutoIt, batch, python, perl, vbscript, etc. It is pretty much just reading a set of text documents and moving or copying files accordingly. – MaQleod Aug 31 '11 at 7:09

AmoK Playlist Copy 2.06

Probably you know the scenario: You have a playlist (Winamp, Windows Media Player, iTunes or Foobar) with your favourite music but as soon as you want to copy files from the playlist to an MP3-Player, an USB stick or burn them on a CD, you get a problem: The music files are in different folders and it would mean heaps of work to get the MP3s out of every folder separately.

Here is where AmoK Playlist Copy helps. AmoK Playlist Copy can read in a playlist and copy all contained files to a folder, MP3-Player, USB-Stick or whatsoever. In the target folder a new playlist is created or alternatively the files are numbered to keep the order of the playlist. And there are many features more: the original folder structure may be flattened, files may be numbered or alphabetically ordered, there is an internal mp3 player and the playlist of a currently running winamp may be imported.

With Foobar2000 you can drag the songs from a playlist to a folder.

+1 for foobar2000, which also scales pretty well for large playlists. Why get a separate tool if your music player can already do it? – damage Jan 27 at 17:29
