How to Play Apple Music on Winamp

Winamp Music Player, first released in 1997and with a 20 more years history, is one of the first widely used music players in the world. The development history of Winamp parallels the developing trend of MP3 file sharing. The mention of Winamp brings about waves of nostalgia for those who have used Winamp to replace iTunes or Windows Media Player back then.

Winamp stopped updating in 2013 until last year it announced a revival, which came with both desktop and Android mobile application. The Winamp 5.8 has already leaked and the fully revamped version 6 will be released later this year. There are still many fans looking forward to it. It is said that the new app can integrate with Apple Music. You can use an M4P plugin to achieve that but that will require you to maintain your subscription to the Apple Music and you can only stream them when you are online.

So, if you want to play Apple Music on Winamp offline, choosing an Apple Music Converter is obviously a better idea. ViWizard DRM Audio Converter can help you remove DRM from Apple Music songs and convert them to Winamp supported formats so that you can stream them on Winamp or elsewhere whenever you want.

Launch ViWizard and then add the Apple Music songs to the interface by clicking the "Add" button. There are two "Add" buttons, to convert Apple Music you should go for the second one (the Music Note icon) on the top of the window. The first "Add" button is for importing non-DRM audio files.

Step 2Customize Audio Output Settings

After the songs successfully loaded to the converter, click the "Format" panel at the left bottom of the surface and choose an output format from the pop-up window. Winamp supports MP3, MIDI, MOD, MPEG-1 audio layers 1 and 2, AAC, M4A, FLAC, WAV, and WMA. So we suggest you select MP3 and click "OK" to confirm the setting.

Step 3Convert the Apple Music songs to MP3
