Paying a buck for a song that I can only play on Apple devices? That's what finally led me away to other legal music downloading services like e Music and Amazon.Currently, the i Tunes Store offers what they call i Tunes Plus song downloads, which are the ones free of DRM.I finally noticed that Apple allowed upgrading to the new i Tunes Plus versions, which gave me a momentary sigh of relief—until I noticed it was not free.With the new i Cloud feature, I thought it would be as simple as logging into i Tunes and clicking on "Purchased" on the right-side quick links, then clicking on the little cloud icon next to each song (as seen in the below image) to re-download an updated version of the song that was free of digital rights management. It will just re-download the protected M4P format, not the new AAC one.I didn't care which, I just didn't want any protected files anymore that would make it hard to play on non-Apple devices.And of course, right-clicking on the song and selecting "Create MP3 Version" did not work.This is what your i Movie project should look like now: Time to move onto the actual music part...Use your Mac's Finder to locate the i Tunes Music Folder and find the song you want to convert.
But it's a very spammy world out there when it comes to this.Just click on (or just hover over) the image in the project window on the left, then click on the little gear symbol in the bottom left of the picture. My example song is , so I'm going to make the image duration in i Movie that length, too.Again, click on the gear symbol on the image, but this time select .Double-clicking on it should do the trick if i Tunes is set as your main music player.It should start playing automatically, but you may have to find it. PS: You can also drag and drop the file into i Tunes.
