“Hello, is there any way I can get my iTunes songs in .m4p format on Winamp? I prefer Winamp over iTunes, but it seems that Winamp doesn’t support M4P.”
As far as I know, Winamp has no native support for M4P files because M4P files are Apple’s DRM restricted. To play M4P in Winamp, you may need an M4P DRM stripper.
TuneFab Apple Music Converter is one of the best iTunes audio DRM removals which can crack DRM from M4P files easily, including Apple Music tracks in M4P format. It converts M4P to MP3, M4A, FLAC, etc. formats that supported by Winamp. All ID3 Tags will be smoothly preserved in output MP3 or M4A files after conversion. By the way, you can also remove DRM from iTunes M4B audiobooks and convert them to M4A or MP3.
