Netflix offers subscription-based online streaming of a vast library of Movies, TV shows, Documentaries, and stand-up specials. Additionally, as a production company, you can enjoy some amazing exclusive contents such as Dangerous Lies, All Day and a Night, Lost Girls, Extraction, Uncorked, Horse Girl, The Half of It, A Secret Love, Circus of Books, and Murder to Mercy: the Cyntoia Brown Story.
It is very convenient for us to watch videos with Netflix once you are a paid subscription user. You can watch Netflix videos on TV, on Computer, and on your Phone. However, you will still get some moments when you want to record Netflix shows.
- Netflix may remove some titles due to some reasons before you watch them, so you want to download them for later watch.
- You want to enjoy a Netflix video offline without stable internet connection.
- You want to capture some moments in the video so that you can share them with your friends or maybe put them to video editor as footages.
- Or maybe you just want to keep your favorite shows locally.
As a paid user, if you see a download icon for some titles, then you can download the titles by clicking on the download icon. While if you can’t find download icon for some titles, then you may have to record these Netflix videos instead of downloading them.
To record Netflix videos, you need to get a reliable video capture tool for recording Netflix. What I will recommend is Aiseesoft Screen Recorder, which is a powerful Netflix Video Recorder. You can record the full-length of a video or maybe just some clips that you like. Unlike other recorders, you can do something else while recording on your computer rather than keep all windows behind the Netflix window, since this Netflix recorder can ignore some windows that you pick and set them 100% transparent in your recorded videos, which I think is a really big feature that appeals to me.
Now, we will show you all steps when recording Netflix with this screen capture tool on Windows.
Step 1 Download and install Aiseesoft Screen Recorder on your computer. This tool is available on Windows and macOS. Choose the one accordingly. Here I will download the Windows one since I will demonstrate the process on my Windows computer.
Step 2 Launch the program once you finish the installation. On the main interface, you will see a Video Recorder module, select it, and you will be referred to the control panel of video recorder.
Step 3 Open Netflix on your browser or launch the Netflix app on your computer. You can choose to maximize the playback window or set it to a customized size. If you plan to maximize the playback window, then don’t forget to set the recorder interface always in front so that you can control your recording without minimizing or resize the playback window.
Step 4 Move back to the interface of Screen Recorder. Now goes my favorite part. If you want to watch some else on your computer and keep your video recording clean. You can exclude some windows that you don’t want to record. Just click Advanced Recorder button and select Exclude window and record in the drop-down list. Then on the Exclude window pop up, enlarge the list, and put ticks in the boxes before the programs that you don’t want recorder to capture. These programs will be invisible in your recording. In this way, you can record your Netflix show and read something else while waiting.
Step 5 Start to record and play the Netflix video. Please ensure that your internet connection is stable and fast. I will ask you to turn off the Wi-Fi connection of your phone and tablet if you are suffering spasmodically video stops.
How to Record Netflix on Android Phone or iPhone
It is true that you can find a lot of free recorder for android and iPhone, you can even find a built-in recording tool on your phone. While I will ask you not to do that, since the storage of your phone is limited while recording video will take a substantial space which might exceed the whole spared capability of your phone and lead to recording failure.
So, I will suggest you to record Netflix on Computer instead of on a phone.
That is all the things that I want to share with you about recording Netflix videos. If you like my post, please share it on your SNS, so that more people will get a chance to read it.
