Plex Media Server is a nice program to manage your fast growing media library at home. It aims at creating a complete solution for all local and online media needs, and acts as a central media management database for streaming all contents like music, videos to various playback devices like iOS/Android, Windows/Mac computer, game console like PS4, Xbox One, or TV console, Roku, Amazon Alexa, Chromecast etc.

Can I Stream Apple Music to Devices via Plex Media Server?

And as music lovers, you may wonder whether is possible to stream Apple Music to device like iPhone, Android phones, or to some devices on which Apple Music streaming service is absent like PS4, Roku, Xbox One etc via Plex Media Server. However, even though Plex is such a powerful program for transferring media files, but it does not work when it comes to the encrypted Apple Music files. That is to say, the protection prevents users from transferring local Apple Music songs or streaming online Apple Music songs to devices which have no Apple Music built-in. But Yes, there is still another solution to make it.

How to Stream Apple Music with Plex Media Server?

The way to help you stream Apple Music to other devices with Plex Media Server is to rip the encryption from Apple Music files with the special designed converter – Sidify Apple Music Converter. You can easily rip the protection from Apple Music files and convert them to the editable audio formats including MP3, AAC, WAV, FLAC or AIFF with the 100 original audio quality kept. And all the ID3 tags would be preserved after conversion to help you organize the music library.
