If you are looking for an ultimate successful recipe for video content creation then you may consider both Capcut and Spotify, as Capcut is a best-in-class convenient video editor and Spotify comes with a huge collection of playlists. This combination will give you flexibility in content editing for any content theme.

This essentially stops you and many other content creators from using your favorite Spotify songs in video editing projects.

Luckily, with an appropriate tool, you can easily convert encrypted Spotify songs into Capcut-compatible files and then add Spotify music to Capcut. Keep reading to learn more about the method.
