How to mix Apple Music songs in VirtualDJ?

Does Apple Music work with VirtualDJ?

I have download some Apple Music playlists to my Mac and I can see the Apple Music folder under iTunes folder in VirtualDJ browser, but there are no songs shown. Does VirtualDJ support Apple Music?

Unfortunately the answer is no. VirtualDJ will read the iTunes Library on every launch and will display all of your iTunes Playlists in the dedicated Root element of the Folder list . iCloud and Apple Music files are cloud based. These results will not appear in the VirtualDJ Browser. From what I've seen, you can save Apple Music songs to your my music folder for offline listening. However, these files are in a m4p format. iTunes purchased music that can be played through VDJ are m4a format. I've tried adding the m4p extension in Advanced options and it shows up, but no audio comes out and the track either says 0:00 or 0:01 on the time.

However, this is a workground for this. If you can download Apple Music songs to mp3, you can then load these songs into VirtualDJ like any other MP3 file. So how to download Apple Music songs to MP3? It's super easy with Ondesoft iTunes Converter. Follow below steps.
