In this article, we will explain the process of how to record videos on Netflix.

Netflix is probably one of the biggest video streaming platforms with more than 222 million subscribers at the start of 2022. Filled with tons of addictive TV shows and movies, action, thriller, and comedy, Netflix will never let you get bored.  This is the reason why Netflix is everyone’s favorite and we can’t have enough of it. However, there are some limitations of Netflix.

Netflix has always had the bad reputation of removing the TV shows and movies before you begin binge-watching them. Netflix has introduced the download feature that allows you to download the TV series for offline viewing on your smartphone. However, the feature is absent for desktop and what’s more annoying is that these downloads expire too.

This is the reason why we want to record the movies and TV shows that are streaming on the Netflix app. Once you do so, you are free to watch these videos later when you are offline. These recordings will even exist if the specific TV show or movie is no longer available. You can watch these recordings on your desktop and even cast the movies on TV screens, Xbox, and other DLNA devices limitlessly.
