Topic: Content Unlimited

The content subscriptions in VDJ is still there by the way, and is fully legal.
The only change was a name change to "Online Music" to have a more general term, as well as more services that was added like Pulselocker and Deezer.
And even if you are allowed to cache ("download") for offline use, its not download to keep using forever (as you would with single tracks you buy at a music store). Same if you have Spotify or any other music subscription, you can only use the files for as long as you are subscriber.
Hope that made sense.

Some of these allow offline (cache download) content, like VirtualDJ content subscriptions.
So if you then downloaded 100 songs at Spotify, and later ended your Spotify subscription, you would no longer be able to use these files. Nor can you use Spotify files outside of Spotify (or Spotify built-into apps)
This is true for all content subscriptions out there.. That be Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc etc.
And to add, this is of course not something VirtualDJ can control or limit. Nor Spotify or Netflix for that matter.
These terms and conditions are dictated and required by the labels and owners of the content.
Either you buy single tracks one by one that you own, or you subscribe to thousand and thousands of tracks for a small fee, that you can use for as long as you subscribe.
Its again, NOT VirtualDJ that makes the conditions so. Its how the content subscription model works for all content providers.

I want to ask about content unlimited songs coming in as MP3 files. Is there an option to change the format of the songs imported rather than MP3? It is just that the compression at high volume is problematic for speakers....

Where did you pick up that nugget? MP3s are compressed whatever the volume.
Besides, it's the size (data) that's compressed, not the audio dynamics, so I fail to see how that affects speakers.

Having said that, the reason I was looking for information in the forums is I have a iDJ Pool subscription, but the content I find on the website is less than what I find though an Audio Content Unlimited search. For example, if I search the iDJ Pool website for Eminem Without Me, I get one hit (Without Me 2016), but if I search iDJ Pool though Virtual DJ with a Content Unlimited Audio subscription, I get 12 hits including the original, quick mixes, clean, etc. I am trying to understand what is going on here...why are there more hits though Virtual DJ?

In VirtualDJ, the songs can only be used as long as your subscription is active.
