How to play karaoke files with virtual dj

Updated July 20, 2017

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.

Turn your computer on and wait for it to load the "Start" screen. Right-click the "Start" menu, then choose "Explore." Click "New," then "Compressed (Zipped) Folder" to create a new folder.

Label the folder by typing in a name. Next, open the folder or location where your CDG video graphics and MP3 songs are located.

Highlight the selected items and drag and drop them in the compressed ZIP folder you created.

Open the software and scroll down to the "Browser" window located at the bottom of the screen. Look to the right of the "Browser" and select the compressed folder location on the left.

Drag and drop the folder in the "Browser" window. The file will be indicated by an audio reel with a blue "K" icon.

Click to highlight the compressed folder, then press the play button on "Deck 1" to hear the MP3 song and see the CDG video graphics at the same time.
