How to Play Tidal Music on Windows Media Player

What is Windows Media Player? If you’re using a computer with a Windows system, you might be familiar with this program. Developed by Microsoft, the Windows Media Player is a media library application that allows users to view images, play music, watch videos and rip audio CDs. It can support different audio formats including MP3, WMV, WMA, CDA, WAV, and others. However, it is disappointing that the Windows Media Player can’t support playing DVDs or music from mainstream music services for some registrations. Also, it only enables to edit the songs’ tags from an online database instead of offering the users an advanced editor.

So now comes the question, can we play music from online music platforms like Spotify, Amazon Music, Tidal Music, etc.? If the answer is positive, how can we work it out? Today we will focus on how to convert the Tidal music tracks to common MP3 format and then play the songs on Windows Media Player.

3 Steps to Convert and Play Tidal on Windows Media Player

If you’re a music lover, you might know that many music services claim to deliver CD-quality music, but they usually only offer music of 320kbps. But if you paid for a Tidal Hi-Fi subscription, you will get lossless music. Tidal music can support different platforms (such as Android, iOS and more) and various many hottest singers (like Taylor Swift). As long as you own a Hi-Fi account, you’re allowed to listen to music offline within the Tidal app.

In other words, we can't enjoy Tidal music on Windows Media Player in a normal way. You can use an amazing tool called Tidabie Tidal Music Converter. You can change the Tidal music from a special format into a plain MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV, ALAC or AIFF. The converted audio files will be the real and valid files. To save our precious time, the songs can be converted in batch at 10X faster speed than a traditional recording method. Furthermore, Tidabie can retain high audio quality and with useful ID3 tags kept after the conversion.

If you don’t have an account, or you've canceled the Tidal Hi-Fi subscription, you will downgrade to be a Tidal Free user. Tidabie can also perfectly work with a free account.
