Where does songbird save playlists?
I made a playlist, and since songbird doesn't play nice with my Sansa Clip, i went into winamp, but couldn't find the playlist anywhere.

I believe playlists aren't stored as m3u files or anything you can play with winamp, but rather in it's internal database. This is located in your profile folder as sqllite files.

You could use this addon: http://addons.songbirdnest.com/addon/51 to export playlists and play them in winamp etc.

Unfortunately, there is no way to export your playlists. I really miss that feature, too. And the add-on doesn ́t work for 1.1.1

qways, you must be kidding. Where do you see that option on your Songbird? I am using the 1.1.1 version, too.

That explains it! ;-)
However, I don ́t understand why they implement an "import" but no "export" option. Doesn ́t make any sense to me.

It is more important that people can easily start to use the songbird than easily stop to use the songbird.

I copied all of my music from my laptop to my desktop and both are using 64bit Ubuntu Jaunty with the same version and extensions of Songbird... But songbird is failing to import the playlists I had exported and saved on my laptop... T_T
