How to Add Deezer Music to iMovie Project

Let’s face it, iMovie’s audio library kinda sucks. If you refuse to be restricted to that tiny, trite collection, adding other music to your videos in iMovie is a breeze. Deezer Music provides a rich music library to let you use any particular songs for the iMovie project. But to add Deezer Music to the project in iMovie is usually not that straightforward. Since all Deezer songs are licensed for use within the application, it is impossible to directly add music from Deezer to your iMovie editor. Good thing is that iMovie can access songs locally stored on your Mac. That said, as long as you've downloaded Deezer Music to the Music app on Mac ( for example, iTunes), iMovie will easily reach the music, thus adding the Deezer Music to your iMovie video project. But how will you free up the licensed Deezer Music and get them physically downloaded to your Mac? This is a problem perfectly addressed by DeeKeep Deezer Music Converter.
