In Banshee, how can I export a simple list of all the music in my library?

I'd like to have a sort of doomsday backup, so that even if I somehow lose everything, I at least know what I need to replace. Tips for other music players welcome as well.

In Banshee you can create a smart playlist which contains all the music in your library (for example with the condition: file size more than 0 bytes) then right click on the playlist, choose export playlist, and you can save the playlist in .m3u format.

"I'm using this temporary solution, which only works on libraries that are well-organized on the file/folder level:

ls library/*/* >> fulllist

Where each directory under library is structured as artist/album/song.

This will store a list of ALBUMS (not individual songs) in fulllist. If you want songs, change library/*/* to library/*/*/* You may have to tweak this depending on how your library is structured. Mine is library/format/artist/album/song."
