How to Fix Windows 10 Mobile Phone Cannot Download Music (Video) Errors/Problems
Q: I'm wondering if there are any great sources to download music free on Windows 10 Mobile (WP10). It appears I've got to go through the Zune Marketplace but if there are other ways to get music directly on the Windows Phone maybe through Amazon or free music sites or other alternatives? I'm NOT trying to pirate music, and I'm only looking forward to downloading music for playing on Windows 10 Phone for personal use.
A: This guide will help you download music videos from YouTube and the like, convert them to fit the device and finally play on Windows 10 Mobile, incl. Lumia 950/950 XL, 550, Windows Phone 8(.1) or other devices.
Do You Believe that Windows 10 Mobile Will Download Music Free?
Many Windows users prefer Google music for personally enjoyment. It allows streaming the entire home music library to Windows phone. But if you don't have a large library of music at home, it is not so useful. Downloading free music to Windows 10 Mobile makes playback more convenient even you don't have wireless network connection. It would be a good way to play music offline on the go.
However, Windows phone (10 included) has blocked the download of MP3 music files from Internet Explorer (and likely the new Spartan browser). It is expensive and troublesome to purchase audios the through Zune only when it's available. To avoid such, people download some apps only to find that they won't download songs from many websites sometimes. Besides, most of the little-know music sites are not so safe and clean. In such cases, the best alternative is to download music videos from YouTube for playing on Windows 10 Mobile with the help of a YouTube video downloader and converter.
