Best Ways to Cut Videos on Windows 10

Sometimes we may need to cut out unnecessary parts from a video file before sharing it to others. In such case, a simple video cutting software will be needed to help us get the job done. If you are using Windows 10 OS, it would be much easier as you can trim the video clips with Microsoft built-in program called Photos. Or you can use some other exclusive video cutting software to cut the video on Win 10 more efficiently. To make it easier for you, we are putting together the complete guides on how to split video with Win 10 default video cutter as well as using 3rd-party video splitter called TunesKit Video Cutter.

Part 1. Cut Videos on Windows 10 with Photos

This could be the perfect solution for you who don’t want to install any extra software on your PC while cutting the video files. But if you are in search of a more professional and stable video cutting tool with additional editing, you are suggested to try the other way instead.

Step 1 Open video file with Photos

First of all, find the video file you wish to trim. Then right-click on the specific file and select Open With > Photos option. You can also open the Photos app firstly and then load the video within the program.

By clicking on the Play icon, you can preview how the video looks after trimming.

Step 3 Cut the video

It’s easy to play music on Google Home as currently this smart speaker supports multiple built-in music services, including Google Play Music, Spotify, Pandora, and YouTube. However, since Apple Music is not a supported service within Google Home, it’s no easy job for Apple Music subscribers to play Apple Music via Google Home unless they use bluetooth to pair the Apple Music with the speaker. But in this case, they can only control the playback with basic commands. So is there another way to stream Apple Music to Google Home with full control? The answer is yes.

Can’t Sync Apple Music to iPod? Solved!

apple-music-on-ipod

Q: I downloaded some Apple Music songs but when I try to sync them to my iPod nano, I got the error message saying “Apple Music songs cannot be copied to an iPod.” What’s wrong? Can’t Apple’s devices support its own service? Come on. Any solution?

Syncing Apple Music tracks to iPod, especially the iPod nano or shuffle is no easy job at all. According to Apple, currently there’s no way to put Apple Music songs on iPods except iPod touch because of the copyright protection. Can’t believe it? But it’s 100% true. Not only iPods, other popular MP3 players like Walkman, Zune can’t support playing Apple Music either. However, that’s possible now thanks to the rapid development of some special Apple Music tools. Here in this post, we’ll show you one of the best solutions to put Apple Music songs on iPod nano/shuffle for offline listening.

Part 1. iPod won’t sync Apple Music, why?

Firstly, let’s take a look at the reason why Apple Music can’t be synced to iPod nano or shuffle. In fact,  that’s simply because iPod nano and shuffle lack Wi-Fi capabilities without which Apple can’t authenticate whether or not the device has an active Apple Music subscription. In other words, Apple can’t track and control your use of those Apple Music songs on your iPods since in this case you can freely download the Apple Music songs within the 3-month free trial subscription and then cancel the service permanently. To avoid such situation, Apple disables the sync between Apple Music and iPod nano and shuffle as well as other common MP3 players. In result, only selected devices like iPhone, iPad, Android could stream Apple Music tracks properly.

The technology Apple used to track your subscription and authorization of Apple Music is called DRM. Because of which, once the Apple Music subscription is cancelled, the music collections will withdraw from all your devices automatically. Therefore, in order to offline sync Apple Music tracks to iPod nano or shuffle, the key is to find a way to break the DRM restriction from Apple Music.

Part 2. Best tool to remove DRM from Apple Music

To delete DRM lock from Apple Music tracks, a professional Apple Music DRM removal software is necessary. TunesKit Apple Music Converter is such a great 3rd party Apple Music converting tool that can help you completely remove DRM protection from Apple Music songs and playlists. It will also convert the specially encoded Apple Music files to common MP3 format compatible with iPod nano/shuffle while keeping the original quality and ID3 tags. With this smart app, you can keep the Apple Music songs on your iPod forever even when the subscription expires.

Part 3. Guide on syncing Apple Music to iPod nano/shuffle

You can download the free trial version of TunesKit Apple Music Converter on your Mac or PC and begin to follow these instructions to see how to easily copy Apple Music songs to iPods.

Step 1. Download and add Apple Music songs to TunesKit

Best Audio Recorder to Record Streaming Music Losslessly

When capturing audio, the biggest consideration you may worry about would probably be the audio quality, right? Generally speaking, unlike the direct downloading, recording audios is more likely to cause quality loss during the process.

The streaming audio capture we are going to share here has perfectly solved the above concerns. The program is called TunesKit Audio Capture for Mac/Windows. Unlike most other audio recorders that adopt traditional recording technology, this top leading streaming audio recording software can not only grab any streaming audio online with almost lossless quality, but also automatically capture all tracks individually, meaning you can capture multiple streaming music tracks simultaneously play on different programs and all the recordings will divide into independent tracks without mixing together. Besides, with this handy streaming audio recorder, you can record and save the audio from Internet to your computer and other devices in MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC, and other commonly used formats.

Two Best Methods to Convert M4A to MP3

m4a-to-mp3

Compared with MP3, M4A is a less commonly used audio format but with better audio quality. It’s more known as a special audio container used by Apple to encode its iTunes music files and audiobooks, including the DRM-free and DRM-protected ones. Since M4A is not popularly supported by most common players or devices, it’s necessary to convert the M4A audio files to MP3 or other more widely used formats. Here we are just going to introduce the top 2 ways to convert the M4A (both DRM-ed and non-DRM audios) to MP3.

Part 1. Convert M4A to MP3 with iTunes for Free

If you prefer to a free solution to convert your M4A audios into MP3, then iTunes could be the best option to accomplish such a task. Now you can simply follow these steps to make your purchased iTunes M4A tracks available as MP3.

Note: This method only works with the M4A audio files without DRM protection. If the M4A files you are trying to convert are locked with Apple’s FairPlay DRM, you should turn to the second method as below.

Step 1. Open iTunes and navigate to Edit menu item and Preferences. Then click General tab and Import Settings.

Step 2. In the popup window, click Import Using, then select MP3 Encoder. You can then adjust the bit rate of the audio file based on your requirements. Then click OK button to apply the settings.

Step 3. Once you apply the Import settings, select the M4A audio file you wish to convert to MP3 in your iTunes library, then click on the File menus, then Convert, and then Create MP3 Version. iTunes will create and automatically place an MP3 version of the song directly beneath it.

Part 2. Convert DRM M4A Audio to MP3 with a More Professional Tool

This is a best solution for converting the DRM-ed iTunes M4A audios to MP3. To check whether your M4A files are protected or not, you can simply play those files on non-iTunes media players or devices. If they can’t play as expected, then they are probably locked by DRM. Apple’s DRM is well known as FairPlay. It’s a special encryption technology used to control the use of its iTunes media content. In result, all iTunes media including the M4A audio can only play well in iTunes compatible platforms. In order to unlock the DRM from those M4A files and convert them to MP3,  you’ll need a more powerful M4A to MP3 converter, such as TunesKit DRM Audio Converter.
