Squeezebox, developed by Logitech, is a network music player. "Squeezebox Controller App" is designed for controlling your Squeezebox Radio. In the "App Gallery" of Squeezebox app, you can find Pandora, Spotify, BBC, Deezer and so many other music servers. However, Apple Music is not in the "App Gallery" list. That is to say, you can use Squeezebox app to play music offered by Pandora, Spotify, BBC, Deezer, and so on, except Apple Music. What if we want to play Apple Music on Squeezebox? Is there any chance to break this barrier?

To play Apple Music on Squeezebox, you need to use Apple Music Converter to convert DRM-protected Apple Music to plain MP3 files, so that you can play those files in other MP3 players. And then stream those MP3 files to Squeezebox. Following is a detailed guide.
