Copying files from a VLC xspf playlist into a new directory

Problem:  You have a nicely curated VLC playlist in xpsf format, and you want to copy those files (and only those files) to a new destination.  Like, your phone or portable device, for a trip or something.

There is a tool called "XSPF Export Tool" out there, done by Gerald at Dragonzero.  It did not work for me.

There is another tool called AmoK Playlist Copy.  It does not support .xspf playlist format.

So what worked for me was:

-  In VLC, save the playlist into *.m3u format, and

-  Use AmoK Playlist Copy to copy the playlist files to a new directory.

Worked perfect for me.
