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

    1. David 09/03/2011 at 4:20 pm

      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.

    1. David 09/07/2011 at 12:54 pm

      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. David 12/06/2011 at 5:21 pm

    You may go to http://www.kuwo.cn/ and click on the download link at the home flash button. I just tested and everything is working fine.

  6. Vsing 20/04/2012 at 9:58 am

    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

    1. David 20/04/2012 at 10:52 am

      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

    hi guys ,how to upload a lyric at kuwo ?

  8. colt 19/03/2013 at 12:24 pm

    Hi David,

    im using Kuwo 2013
    how to disable global keyboard shortcut?

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

    1. colt 19/03/2013 at 12:32 pm

      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

      1. David 19/03/2013 at 2:21 pm

        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

      Hope this help

  12. yching 19/11/2013 at 9:54 am


    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.

    1. David 19/11/2013 at 9:14 pm

      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 http://music.baidu.com/, and you still need to find a proxy from China.

      Hope this help.

  13. Angela 20/11/2013 at 9:29 pm

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

    1. David 22/11/2013 at 11:53 am

      Hi, I just give a try yesterday to confirm the functionality, Kuwo’s Proxy is not allow you to by pass the country checking as well.

      And i try another way to download the music from Internet is via the music.Baidu.com by entering the Proxy IP into my firefox browser and manage to bypass the country blocking.

      To get the china proxy server IP, you may refer to http://spys.ru/free-proxy-list/CN/
      To enter the proxy in Firefox, you may refer to http://www.wikihow.com/Enter-Proxy-Settings-in-Firefox

      Hope this will help

    2. David 24/11/2013 at 2:36 pm

      Hi Angela, You can refer to this post on the alternative way to download song from Internet

  14. WWLIT 21/11/2013 at 9:15 pm

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

    1. David 22/11/2013 at 1:00 pm

      As per my experience, this is not possible.

  15. Milo Yin 22/11/2013 at 7:00 pm

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

    1. David 22/11/2013 at 11:52 pm

      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 Music.baidu.com 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 22/11/2013 at 7:22 pm

    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 ><

    1. David 22/11/2013 at 11:53 pm

      Ya, they already block all the country other than China to be able to download, will share on how to download song from Baidu as the alternative for Kuwo.

    2. David 24/11/2013 at 2:36 pm

      Hi Milo Yin, You can refer to this post on the alternative way to download song from Internet

  17. Windy 24/12/2013 at 2:10 pm

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

    1. David 02/01/2014 at 9:10 am

      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. edward 17/01/2014 at 11:01 am

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

    1. David 17/01/2014 at 6:10 pm

      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 24/02/2014 at 11:28 pm

    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?


    1. David 27/02/2014 at 9:14 am

      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 01/03/2014 at 7:44 pm

    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?


    1. David 01/03/2014 at 11:26 pm

      Is your iPad jailbroken? if yes, you may try on the sj91 (http://iphone.91.com/). I never try that before, if you manage to get it done, maybe can share with me.

      Thanks and hope it help

  21. Catherine 05/03/2014 at 4:22 am

    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. jovan 02/04/2014 at 11:54 pm

    may I knowable to download MV for free ?

    1. David 03/04/2014 at 12:30 am

      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 (http://strongvpn.com/) which the price is around USD 15 (~ RM 45). you can also watch the PPS without any issue

  23. coolboi 29/05/2014 at 3:41 pm

        Another issue is which some of them raise up, that is d characters r all in ??????
        pls help again!

        1. David 29/05/2014 at 4:03 pm

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

          1. coolboi 29/05/2014 at 4:09 pm

            Hi David,

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

          2. David 29/05/2014 at 4:37 pm

            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.

    Hi David
    When I play music in kuwo the music will suddenly stop about 10seconds then continue play.
    How to fix this problem???

    1. David 14/01/2015 at 3:23 pm

      is that because of the buffer? i experience this problem also, but mine 1 is because of the buffer and sometime if internet speed is not good, it will just skip that song and continue with the next buffered song.

      You try to check is that your connection slow issue

  25. Ben 31/05/2015 at 9:08 pm

    1. David 11/08/2015 at 3:46 pm

      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

  29. James 19/09/2015 at 4:42 am

    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. James 20/09/2015 at 11:49 pm

    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.

    1. David 21/09/2015 at 11:42 am

      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. Mahdi 22/04/2017 at 11:02 am

    I am going to try this software
