Part 1. Download YouTube Music to Local Computer

The first thing you need to be aware of is that YouTube Music songs, like other streaming platforms, are specially protected and are only available on authorized devices or players where the conditions permit. Therefore, to add YouTube Music to Serato DJ Pro and Lite you need to have a powerful third-party converter. Generally speaking, this type of converter will help you to convert and download YouTube Music to a common format audio file. This way it will be easily recognized by the Serato DJ tools. Let's take a look at the types of files supported by Serato DJ below.
