I wanted to burn one of my playlists to a CD this morning, but I had some trouble figuring out how or where Banshee managed the burning.
I thought perhaps I could just locate a playlist and right-click on that playlist and choose Burn to CD or something equally obvious. Nope.
Right-clicking on a playlist in Banshee gives three options:
I then thought maybe there would be an export option that was something like … as CD or maybe even … as ISO. No luck. Just three different playlist file options (m3u, pls, and xspf). I really didn’t want to have to export the playlist and use another application to burn from that file manually.
After some thrashing about and some mild cursing I found that if you right-click on any track (in a playlist or otherwise) you will find a related option:
Of course that will open Brasero with the one track ready to burn. Ok. That was enough for understanding but let’s agree that’s a little silly.
Here is the short version for those who are still scratching their heads. First you enter one of your playlists (by clicking on it). Then you select all of the tracks in that playlist. Finally you right-click on those selected tracks and send those to Brasero using the Write CD… option.
Have fun with that.
