How to download lossless music from platforms such as QQ and NetEase Cloud.


Recently, I wanted to download my QQ Music playlists to my local device to prevent copyright expiration. I couldn't find a suitable downloading tool until I discovered this GitHub project.
Project Link:

I quickly tried it out and the results were excellent. It has the following advantages:

  • High-speed downloading, utilizing my full bandwidth
  • Supports NetEase Cloud Music, QQ Music, and Kuwo Music
  • Has a user-friendly interface with detailed tutorials, suitable for beginners
  • Supports playlist and album downloads

Now, I will provide a simple tutorial on how to use it using the Windows operating system.

Installation Environment and Required Dependencies#

Install Python 3.11.2#

According to the author, it is necessary to install Python 3.11.2.

I haven't tried other versions myself, so I followed the author's recommendation and installed this version of Python.

Note that the author also emphasizes not to install Python in a path with spaces, such as the default path C:/Program Files(x86)/. Therefore, I installed it in another location. Remember to check the option to add it to the environment variables during installation.

Install Dependencies#

Clone the project to a suitable location (not on the C drive unless you only have one drive).

git clone

Enter the directory.

cd QQFlacMusicDownloader

Install the dependencies.

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

If the installation speed is too slow, you can set a mirror source before installing the dependencies.

pip3 config set global.index-url


Execute the command.


If there is no response, execute


A firewall request will pop up, please allow it. Then, do not close the terminal and enter in your browser.

If a webpage appears, it means it was successful. Take a look and you will know how to use it.
Here is a commonly used search method: click on the sidebar "Music Search" and enter p number to download all the songs in the playlist. The default download directory is located in the music/ folder in the path you cloned.

Enjoy the pleasure of lossless audio quality! This kind of project may be taken down sooner or later, so please use it as soon as possible.
