Topic: Playing Napster Tracks on Virtual DJ Home Edition
I have bought DJ Mixstation 3 and when I try to play Napster tracks it can't read them, I guess because of the protection software. Is there any way I can get round this or do I have to upgrade to a newer edition of VDJ? Does VDJ Home Edition allow Napster tracks to be played or do I have to buy the Professional edition?

Not being a professoinal DJ by any means as my kids will testify, I would rather use Home Edition if it does what I need. Can you also tell me where I can buy Home Edition. I've trawled the internet with no luck and I live in the UK.

Many Thanks

mixstation 3 is home editon as such as to the napster they put pesky protection on the files

however in pro , you have "global recordcase"

which connects to your napster acount and allows you to play/download these files.

you can find more info about that here

you are aslo entitled to a discount as you purchased homedition

Thanks for that.

So just to make sure that I've got it right, the only way that I can play Napster tracks is by buying pro edition. Is that correct?

If that's the case, then can you confirm that you can play Napster tracks through pro version, even when the computer is not connected to the internet and as such is not in direct contact with Napster to provide account details. I just want to be sure that it will work when I've downloaded tracks then take the computer to another location to show off my amazing DJ skills to my kids!

Thanks Again

100% they will work on pro

but before that lets try an experiment

what format are the files in? you have

.mp3

When the files are saved from Napster to my hard disc, they are saved as wma (windows media audio) files, which are data protected when you analyse the file status.

You can’t play Napster files in VDJ 8.
