How Freegal Music works
- Freegal allows library members to stream music for 3 hours per day and download up to 5 songs each week. Members are able to keep track of their downloads in the upper right corner of the site. Every song can be previewed before being selected for download. Members must be logged in to enjoy the clips.
- The downloads in Freegal are all in the MP3 format with no Digital Rights Management (DRM), and videos are in the MP4 format with no DRM. This service will work on almost any computer, player, tablet or smartphone. The Freegal Music mobile app is free in the Apple® App Store and in Google® Play
- Music videos will cost members 2 of their allotted downloads. If 2 downloads are not available members will not be able to download a music video.
- The search engine is both a simple and advanced search, and will return results primarily by the album that the song is from.
Transferring music between devices
Freegal’s music files are downloaded as MP3 files which are compatible with any MP3 Player or device. You can transfer the music to any computer, MP3 player or even burn it to a CD. Copyright laws apply for all music downloaded.
