Why Can't I Play My Apple Music Songs on Plex Media Player?
Without any doubt, Plex Media Player is very powerful for transferring media files. It can recognize just about any video, music, or photo format and displays all of your content in an easy-to-navigate interface. Apple Music users can’t transfer the downloaded Apple Music songs and play them on other devices like iOS / Android, Windows / Mac computer, game consoles like PS4, Xbox One, TV console, Roku, Amazon Alexa, Chromecast, etc.
This limits Apple Music songs can only be played on some devices, and you need to subscribe to the streaming Music service with the same Apple ID, not to say that you want to copy to other devices for playing.
Therefore if you want to transfer Apple Music files to play on other devices via Plex Media Player, it is necessary to delete the limitation from Apple Music files.
