Why would you want to when we have NetSearch fed directly from GrooveShark?

Spotify music is streamed live and can only be played via their steaming music player.

Music from Spotify cannot be played in VirtualDJ or any other application.

Ah - thanks for clearing that up lads!

Incidentally though with spotify premium you do actually actually download the tracks, but in a weird cache thing (not unlike net search) was just wondering if there was a way...

I suppose I could always just plug my iphone into the mixer as a line in device..

Thanks all!

The downloaded files from Spotify will be encrypted and DRM protected so that they can only be played in the official Spotify application.

Unlike the files downloaded from NetSearch, the Spotify music is not authorised for DJ use. The 'free' Spotify service is paid for by adverts.

For a reasonable monthly fee, Premium NetSearch already offers what you are looking for: http://www.virtualdj.com/products/membership.html

I have just tried to pay for grooveshark and even though there is a paypal logo there is no way to pay by paypal. Is it your mistake having the paypal logo there or am i missing something?

Paypal offers different styles of paying.

- Prepayed (you have to put money to your account)
- Kredit Card (you register your KK once to Paypal and don't have to give it to every one) - This is what Atomix supports
- Bank Transfer (you buy things and PP take the money from your bank)
