Virtual DJ music software enables you to play different audio formats such as WAV, MP3 and karaoke files. Karaoke formats such as MP3+G, OGG+G, CDG and ZIP files are supported on the Virtual DJ interface. When playing karaoke files on Virtual DJ, you must import either the audio or video graphic file of your choice. If you're looking to import a complete karaoke track that has both audio and video graphics, you must first combine the CDG video graphics with the MP3 songs in a zipped folder.
