Solved: Add Spotify music to iMovie

iMovie is Apple's flagship program to create and edit movies on your Mac. iMovie makes it easy to turn your home videos into polished films. The iMovie editor ties in with iTunes and GarageBand for background music. So many Spotify users wonder is there any way to use Spotify songs as background music.

"I would like to use a few songs from my Spotify for my video projects. Is it possible to transfer the song from Spotify to my computer?" "I want one of the songs for my movie maker but I do not know how...please help" "How can I add to a iMovie creation a song taken from Spotify?" From the Spotify Community, many Spotify users ask the above questions. They all get the answer from Spotify as following: Unfortunately, Spotify music is licensed for use only within the Spotify application...so while it is downloaded to a device for premium users, the files actually cannot be played outside of the Spotify application.

Actually, Spotify songs are in DRM protected Ogg Vorbis format and can only be played with Spotify app. All editing tools don't support Ogg Vorbis format. For example, iMovie Supported Audio File Formats are MP3, WAV, M4A, AIFF and AAC. It means you are unable to import and edit Spotify songs on any video/audio editing tools. So if you need to import Spotify music to video editing tools like iMovie, you need to convert Spotify music to mp3.

There is an easy and effective way to solve the problem effortlessly. What you need is just an awesome Spotify to MP3 Converter like Trumpet Spotify Music Converter .
