How to Play Apple Music on VLC Media Player

VLC is a popular and powerful software media player for both Mac and Windows. It's also a stellar alternative to Windows Media Player or iTunes for managing digital media files. It is able to play multiple video and audio formats with no problem. However, the Apple Music M4P format is an exception. You may be used to play audio via VLC, but it refused to play these Apple Music M4P songs when you try to directly play the audio from iTunes library. Why? Since music tracks that have been downloaded from Apple Music's streaming catalog are DRM-protected, and due to the DRM copyright protection, users are prohibited from streaming the downloaded Apple Music songs to non-Apple media players for playback.
