Topic: Virtual DJ for Chrome OS


Now in these days there is a new software for laptops that is not only conquering the market due to high performance but also for cheap prices. This is Chrome OS powered by Google. Sadly Virtual DJ is not available in Chrome OS. This means that Virtual DJ is losing thousands of potential clients that want to DJ but also need a cheap high performence laptop. Other DJ software programs have already put their softwares in Chrome OS. Eventhough none of them are as good as Virtual DJ people are using those DJ softwares which means Virtual DJ is losing thousands of dollars.

So will you make Virtual DJ available in Chrome OS

I doubt it

I also doubt that people who are forced to buy a cheap laptop, and therefore choose a Chromebook, are willing to pay $299 for a DJ software to put on their cheap laptop

Another issue with Chromebooks are that they are designed to be online. They can do some things offline, including holding some files. But DJs needs to be able to DJ entirely offline

So if Atomix were to port VDJ to a third platform, I think a Unix platform, like maybe Ubuntu, would be a smarter choice than Chrome OS

What other DJ software is available for Chrome OS?

Traktor, Serato, Rekordbox (those are the "big three")? I don't think so.

If "thousands of DJs" were desperate to use a cheap laptop to DJ with (which I doubt, if they have professional standards) then why aren't those programs available for Chrome OS?

The only way I see VirtualDJ functions via a Chromebook is via the remote app controlling a bona-fide VirtualDJ installation running on robust hardware. Chromebooks use low power ARM processors currently and dont have the performance needed. VirtualDJ is compiled to run on RISC (X86 and AMD64) architectures running windows and OSX. The only feasible additional platform I would predict may be able to run VirtualDJ natively in the future will be the Linux platform. (and I would love that!)

Considering there is potential for 4k online gaming to be run through a chrome web browser on a laptop that's years old (Stadia), this should definitely be possible in the near future I hope.

You're asking about XP in a ChromeOS thread!

Yes you can use VDJ with XP - if you run an old outdated build, which is not recommended.

Your OS is out of date. Time to upgrade :-)

Please do not use a computer with Windows XP connected to the internet or USB thumb drives.

Sadly, not even Serato is compatible with Chromebook, but for those Chromebook users, I would recommend a djing software called transitions DJ or soundtrap.

I am really angry about Windows 11. I am a pro Virtual DJ user, and I have several high end laptops. Non of them qualify for windows 11. They want to hold you hostage to fill up the landfills with your old laptops and buy a brand new one. It is time for Virtual DJ to write a Chromebook version. They have high end chromebooks now. With SD cards and SSD external drives, you can easily store all of your music for offline use. I own a Chromebook as well and it amazes me how there is no lag ever and it is only a middle of the road model. Time to stick it to Microsoft for this latest criminal act. My I7 and A10 laptops with tons of ram can easily run windows 11. I could rewrite the system to bypass the equipment check with installing Windows 11 but I should not have to. Where is the outrage from all of the environmentalists out there.

Windows 10 is indeed still supported until 2025 at least, and by that time the youngest computers that can't upgrade to Windows 11 will be at least 7 years old. I don't think that's too unreasonable.

(In comparison, Google only offers updates for chromebooks up to 6.5 years old, so who is helping fill up landfills?)
