"Hey guys! I'm new to VDJ8 and I’m hoping that you can help me out here. When I try to drag and drop songs from Apple Music (ITunes) to play in VDJ, the songs come up with a little red icon on the song, and it just doesn't appear in VDJ.

And I found that other people were having a similar issue, their VDJ wasn't seeing playlists from Apple Music/iTunes. I tried the fix which was to go into iTunes Settings and clicking the box, which allowed other programs to use downloaded songs. This allowed me to see my playlist folders in VDJ, but when I click on the folder in VDJ, there is no song in there to choose from."
