Copy playlist files to your Media player in Amarok

Ok, so last night I was trying to help my wife with something in Amarok. She has made a few playlists that she uses for her dance classes, and was looking for a simple way to transfer the songs in the playlist to her media player. I was shocked to discover that this feature had not yet made its way into Amarok 2.

After some digging around, I found that there was a way to do this via Amarok scripting, and in fact someone had written and posted one online. It is available using the GHNS feature in Amarok under the Script Manager, and is called "Copy Selected Files" (search under most downloaded).

For those not familiar with how to add and/or enable these scripts, please have a look at the quick video below. I didn't add any audio, but the visual should be enough.
