Have more questions?
How do I download music videos?
- Music videos are not currently available to download through the Freegal App. You will need to use a PC or a Mac.
- Log in to Freegal and choose a video to download.
- Once you have downloaded a video to your desktop or downloads folder, import the song into your favorite media player. Freegal music videos are mp4 files, which work iTunes, Windows Media Player, Quicktime, and many other media players.
- 1 music video counts as 2 of your total downloads for the week.
How do I add my songs to iTunes or Windows Media Player?
- If you downloaded songs from the Freegal App, you have two weeks to download songs again to your home computer.
- Log in to Freegal.
- Go to"Downloads" to download your songs.
- You may need to log out of the Freegal mobile app, which you can do in "Settings."
- Once you have downloaded a song to your desktop or music folder, import the song into iTunes or Windows Media Player by either dragging the song into the window or importing it from the menu.
What is the Wishlist?
- You can save songs and videos to your Wishlist to download later. These will appear in "My Wishlist."
- To add a song to your wishlist, click the + button and "Add to wishlist."
- If you have used your downloads for the week, you will see the message "Limit met." When your downloads reset for the next week, you will see "Download."
Can I download an entire album?
- Yes, but not all at once. Since songs are available individually, you can download a whole album over time using three downloads per week. You can save all of the songs from an album to your Wishlist to download over time.
Is the app available for Kindle or Nook?
- No, the Amazon and Barnes and Noble app stores do not currently carry the Freegal app.
