    How to show the song i listen at Kuwo on my MSN?

    • Just to go MSN –> Toops –> Options –> Personal and check the [Show song information from Windows Media Player as a personal message] checkbox.

      Than your contact will see your Personal title showing what song you are actually playing now at Kuwo.

  3. Jason says:

    why kuwo kenot download for now???

    • What error or message did you get? it is your local ISP or your computer firewall blocked this?

      As for me from Kuala Lumpur have no problem for that up to now.

    which above, why i can’t show it still even I ticked it for tries. Arggg. I am going insane with it. Last time it is okay. But don’t know why now do not appear -.-

  5. You may go to and click on the download link at the home flash button. I just tested and everything is working fine.

  6. Vsing says:

    is there any virus due to using kuwo? coz my friend’s laptop had crashed when he is using kuwo..and also said that the anti virus he using had detect trojan

    • So far I got no problem to use Kuwo. But I believe the trojan detected is from the pop up advertisement window.

      I found out one thing that if you wish to update the Kuwo, the best way is uninstall the old version (don’t choose to delete everything including the playlist, if not you will lost everything), than only install the new version. If not it will have 2 copy of Kuwo in your computer, when you try to start the application, the 2nd startup apps will force to close the first startup apps. the window will always pop up the alert to ask you to force close up the old version of Kuwo and run the new version.

      Hope this info help you

  7. hi guys ,how to upload a lyric at kuwo ?

  8. Hi David,

    im using Kuwo 2013
    how to disable global keyboard shortcut?

    i try change the key, but it still using the previous setting

    • Sorry, i think i disable the global keyboard shortcut already
      but i got another problem
      before open Kuwo, when using excel/word: i can block a whole word with ctrl+shift+left/right
      after open Kuwo (before disable global keyboard shortcut), when using excel/word: next or previous song
      after open Kuwo (after disable global keyboard shortcut), when using excel/word: nothing happen

      • I not too sure on your what’s your system problem, but I can suggest you try to enabled back the Global Keyboard Shortcut, but removed the function key CTRL + Shift + left/right. This is what I did in my system.

        For my case, everything is working fine as per expected after I remove the function key from the Kuwo.

        Hope this help you

  9. Hi, i’m using Ku Wo 2013, cant download songs as usual. and there’s a message pop out

    saying ” due to copyright issue, downloading songs available only in China”

    Please advise. This only starts in this year.

    • May i know what song or what content are you downloading actually? because i tested on my Kuwo 2013, that’s no problem to download the current listen song.

      • Hi David, just as usual, i download songs like Pink, just give me a reason and many other pop songs. isn’t not available in Singapore?

  10. William says:

    Hi david,

  11. Raymond says:

    I tried download Kuwo Music Box several times, each time I got one the has funny character or words (not Chinese) I can’t comprehend. Please help! Thanks.

    • Can you please double check on your PC, are you install the Chinese language pack?

      Start –> Control Panel –> Region and Language –> Administrative –> Current language for non-unicode program

      Hope this help

    I have downloaded Kuwo Music Box 2013 but unfortunately could not download due to copyright issue, downloaded only allowed in China. Anyway to rectify this.

    • Ya, i just found out this problem yesterday, you can Google for China proxy and enter it into you Kuwo Music box network. Or the alternative is you can download the music from, and you still need to find a proxy from China.

      Hope this help.

  13. Angela says:

    sorry, I am a noob. how to enter kuwo using china proxy?

  14. WWLIT says:

    Is it possible to enter a China Proxy into an andriod kuwo application. Im currently using kuwo in my phone.

  15. Milo Yin says:

    Hi! I can’t download song at all, before this i using quite nice to use. But now can’t download at all..

    • Ya, I believe Kuwo start block the country other than China to download the song since few days ago. But you still be able to download the song from with the China country proxy.

      I will share on how to add the proxy as well as how to download via Baidu very soon.

  16. Milo Yin says:

    Hi! I recently use Kuwo2013, i can’t download songs at all. Before i using Kuwo2012 can download.. but now can’t download. Just can listen only..Help me ><

  17. Windy says:

    May i know, how to download via Kuwo (Mac version)?

    • I believe same thing happen to Kuwo in MAC version where they already block all the download from all country other than China.

      You may use Baidu music + China Proxy to download the song that you like to.

  18. how to change kuwo into chinese language?my kuwo everything is very diffrence.the language like this : ?????

    • May I know what Operating system are you using? and can you make sure that your OS can view the Chinese language? if cannot, than you may need to install the language pack for your OS.

  19. William says:

    Hi david,

    Just want to ask you question. I’m using kuwo on my ipad, how I can move my downloaded song from ipad to my Laptop?


    • Up to now i never try the Kuwo in my iPad yet, so I cant confirm on this, but what you can try is plugin your iPad to iTune, than go to application page, than try to go to the bottom part of the page.

      If the Kuwo allow you to include the song into the application, than you should be able to drag and drop into this area. You can try it and let’s me know is that workable.


  20. mixmac says:

    hi david

    same question as william here!

    i’ve tried to connect the iPad to iTunes
    unfortunately, kuwo does not allow file sharing

    any other idea?


  21. Catherine says:

    Hi i have kuwo on my android phone and it used to have lyrics on my screen when i exited the app but now i updated it now it wont come out and i cant read chinese so how do i fix it

  22. may I knowable to download MV for free ?

    • At this moment, Kuwo block the download of the MV from outside of China mainland. You can try the alternative way, which is try to use VPN to bypass the location blocking.

      For the VPN, i would suggest you looking for strong VPN ( which the price is around USD 15 (~ RM 45). you can also watch the PPS without any issue

      • coolboi says:

        Hi David,

        A million thanks to u…. it sure did help!!!!
        Another issue is which some of them raise up, that is d characters r all in ??????
        pls help again!

        • The chinese charecter unable to display issue may due to your computer language setting. may I know what is your operating window version

          • coolboi says:

            Hi David,

            window 7 professional
            service pack 1
            system type: 32-bit operating system

          • Because window 7 is not come with Chinese language pack install, so you may need to install the Chinese language pack for your window, you need the window installer CD and following the following step:

            1) Click on start > Control Panel
            2) Click on clock, Language and Region > Region and Language->
            3) Keyboard and Languages >Change keyboards > Add > Chinese (Simlified,PRC)
            Please choose which IME you want to install, and then apply the settings.
            I hope that this information helps. Please get back to us if you have any more questions about this issue.

            After installing the chinese language pack and yet your Kuwo still displaying the ???? char, you may try to reinstall the Kuwo application again, it should help.

    • You need to get the Windows 7 installer CD in order to install the Chinese Language, it still working with the Window 7 Pirated version, no worry.

      You may refer to Microsoft webiste for more information

    Hi, I’ve downloaded Kuwo 2015 on my laptop. But the at my files, i keep seeing “Lyrics” and “Temp”.
    Is there a way to stop it’s auto download?? Coz every time after listening to music, I’ll have to delete the 2 folders. It’s annoying. Thanks 🙂

  30. Hi, I want to stop the “lyrics” and “temp” auto download in my KWdownload file. How do I do it?? Also there’s another file that is Kwdownloadx. It always appears, what is it??
    Coz every time i listen to a new song, it’ll auto download and it’s annoying for i have to keep deleting it. Pls help.

    • Kuwo is build to auto stream the lyrics when you play the song, the lyrics file will be default store in the C:\KwDownload\Lyric and the rest of the temp file (music file or advertisement file) will be stored at C:\KwDownload\Temp.

      You cannot disable the file to be download to your computer but you can limit the size to store those file. You can follow the following step on how to set the buffer limit

      设置 –> 本地下载 –> 缓存大小设置 –> 手动 –> [set the space allocated in MB]

  31. I am going to try this software
