M3UPorter , simple app to move Winamp playlist files

I spent about an hour trying to find a simple application to copy the files referenced by my Winamp playlist to a USB pendrive, in order to take them with me. Tough luck, most of them are either missing libraries, or plain not working properly on Windows 7. Therefore, I rolled my own.

This application will keep what you need to do to a bare minimum, it's just ABC:

  • Choose the playlist, or drag it on the app
  • Choose the destination directory
  • Select options
    • You can prefix your filenames with the playlist position, in order to preserve it. 3 digit numbers only at the time
    • You can move the files instead of copying
  • Click Go!


  • Simple to use
  • Compatible with Windows 7
  • Uses .NET 4.5
  • Is available on GitHub ( https://github.com/hexblot/M3UPorter )
  • Can move / copy files
  • Can prefix with playlist position
  • Visual feedback about progress (very handy in large lists)
