“Hey guys! I'm new to VDJ8 and I’m hoping that you can help me out here. When I try to drag and drop songs from Apple Music (ITunes) to play in VDJ the songs come up with a little red icon on the song as it hovers over either of the queue spots in VDJ. When I drop the song, it just doesn't appear in VDJ. And I found that other people were having a similar issue that their VDJ wasn't seeing playlists from Apple Music/Itunes. I tried the fix which was to go into iTunes Settings and clicking the box which allowed other programs to use downloaded songs. This allowed me to see my playlist folders in VDJ, but when I click on the folder in VDJ, there is no song in there to choose from."
Apple Music is a streaming music service offering subscribers encrypted .m4p format songs that can be listened to in iTunes or with Apple Music App only. Therefore, we can’t play Apple Music on Virtual DJ Software, MP3 Player or any other non-licensed media software. So even if we manage to see the playlists from Apple Music / iTunes from the browser of VDJ, we are unable to successfully load those songs into the deck of VDJ.
To make it easy, it’s the encrypted .m4p format that prevents us from playing Apple Music on VDJ. If we can convert the encoded .m4p format to other popular formats, mp3, for example, we will then be able to easily add Apple Music songs to our DJ mixing app. Here comes the key issue: How to decrypt Apple Music to .mp3?
NoteBurner iTunes Audio Converter, a combination of Apple Music Converter, Audiobook Converter and iTunes M4P Music Converter, is the perfect tool to do the job. It can easily convert protected Apple Music & Audiobooks & iTunes M4P music to MP3/AAC/WAV/FLAC format.
