iTunes or apple music? apple music is DRM protected therefore is not playable with vdj.

@devs perhaps a dialogue box/message if user tries DRM tracks.

I'm using iTunes... I see the title, such as "90s dance" and click recurse but nothing populates.

You didn’t answer the question: are you using music you’ve bought or Apple Music?

Also, do you have more than one iTunes library?

I have an iTunes monthly subscription if that's what you mean by songs I pay for.

And yes only 1 library

The monthly subscription means you are using Apple Music which rents you the music. It is only playable within the Apple ecosystem (iTunes and Apple devices). The music is DRM-protected which means VDJ cannot play it. Besides, the Apple Music service is for personal use only.

when did VDJ stop playing DRM, is that why I have an X through my songs?

If "your" songs are rented (where are they from?), then they are highly likely to have DRM protection.

However, as far as I'm aware VDJ does not recognise DRM protection in the browser. It just refuses to play the tracks.

It's more likely that you've just moved or renamed the tracks without doing so in VDJ - so now the database can't locate them.

Export the playlist in iTunes to an M3U playlist.
Then bring that list into VDJ.

See if VDJ can find the tracks then.

So I have to buy each idvidual song to be able to use vdj. There’s no way at all to use Apple Music?

Correct. Apple Music is a consumer service and not licensed for use in DJ’ing.
