If you’re a Netflix subscriber, all you need to do to watch any of its TV shows, movies or other content is fire it up on your PC or mobile device and you’ll be able to immediately stream it. However if you don’t have an active internet connection or it is unstable you won’t be able to stream them, and while Netflix has recently introduced a download feature it only is available for some content and on mobile devices.
Assuming you want to download Netflix videos onto a PC or Mac, your best bet is to use Movavi Screen Capture instead. As a screen recorder it can recorder any Netflix content directly from your screen so you can then save it onto your hard drive and watch it as and when you please.
In theory it is easy to accomplish this as all you need to do is set up Movavi Screen Capture so it records the area of your screen where the Netflix video is playing. That can be done without much hassle as all you need to do is click and drag the mouse cursor to draw a frame encompassing the Netflix video.
Of course you’re going to want the audio to be recorded as well, so you should check that Movavi Screen Capture will record the system audio. By default the appropriate icon should be highlighted, but if it isn’t you can click on it once.
Although you can manage the recording using the on-screen control panel, Movavi Screen Capture also has a system of hotkeys that you can use if you find it to be more convenient. If you aren’t free to manually control the recording, you can set a timer to automatically stop it after a certain duration or schedule both the start and stop time.
Once you’re done and stop the recording, the video that you captured will automatically be saved in MKV format and you can preview it on-screen. If you would prefer it to be saved in another format you can select one and Movavi Screen Capture will convert it into that format instead. Rest assured it supports most major formats, and also includes hundreds of presets for various devices that you can use to automatically optimize your video accordingly.
That pretty much covers all you need to know about how to download movies from Netflix onto a PC or Mac. As you can see it is fairly straightforward to set up the recording using Movavi Screen Capture, and it won’t take you long to get it underway so you can save your favorite content and watch them later on.
