-- Enjoy iTunes Classic M4P Songs on VLC Media Player

“I always get music from iTunes store where I can get the licensed HD ones. And a good news is that all iTunes songs are completely DRM-free now. But it seems to be not available to those audio files purchased several years ago. Is it possible to enjoy all my music on VLC Media Player without any trouble ?”

It is a fact that there are those who are keen on classic songs no matter how many new ones keep emerging. It is another truth that iTunes M4P music DRM-free is not always the case, especially for those old iTunes songs purchased before 2009, which are still keeping from copying.
