Spotify streaming music cannot be exported outside the system (ie Saving permanently to your hard drive, burning CDs etc). If this were possible there would be no way that the rights holders of the music could continue to be paid for the enjoyment of their music.

No its not :P

Spotify is an excellent service, if you want to use music in another program then you need to purchase the music so you own it first.

Surely that's BS.

You can send tracks to friends via Facebook ??

You can send links to tracks in the Spotify library using Facebook, you never actually send the track itself.

Ok, but what about when you are subscribing for the service and the song is made available for you offline.  Doesnt that mean its been saved locally so that you can play it even without internet connection ?

I thought when saved locally it would have to be somewhere on my computer ?

If I want to use Virtual DJ to play it back that should be OK.  Its just a player and I am paying a monthly subscription so ? whats the go ? and how do I add my songs to VDJ playlist ?

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

Short answer is you can't. Spotify downloaded playlists are stored in an encrypted format so that they can only be played inside the Spotify client. This is to ensure that you can not pirate tracks from Spotify as well as making sure that artists are fairly paid for all of their track plays.

Hey! Welcome to the community :) 

 

There is currently no DJ controls built into Spotify, but you might be interested in adding your kudos and comments to this ideas topic.

 

As said above, you can't export tracks outside of Spotify for use in another program such as Virtual DJ.
