Re: transferring files to windows media player

What files you try to transder? Spotify streamed files are only playable in Spotify.

Dancecore streaming with 10M/10M 4G network at the home and with 2M/2M 3G network on the go.

Spotify is a streaming service. 

To add music to windows media player you need to purchase the songs so that you can download them and add them to your local library.

Re: transferring files to windows media player

That makes so much sense!! I'm thinking this is legal music, why can't I load and burn it? But with it being so cheap, it's a streaming service, not a download. That response was so simple and common sense and so helpful, Thanks....I was starting to feel stupid!!!

Hello and welcome:

 

Sorry but Spotify service content can only be played in the Spotify device apps and/or API's developed and approved Apps such as Spotiamp which is a Winamp style Spotify player that can play Spotify service content.  If you have a permium account you can check out Spotiamp as a different type of player design and it is skinnable. Check it out here http://spotiamp.com/
