However, unlike other local audio files, they are encrypted in OGG Vorbis format with DRM protection, users won't be able to access to them. That is to say they are only cached for local listening. You are almost impossible to transfer and distribute them anywhere. This is not good at all. To solve this pain, I will offer the best way to decrypt Spotify songs.
