I don’t know about you, but I’m totally addicted to TV shows and scary movies on Netflix. I would imagine many of you can relate to this mind set no matter what niche your viewing preferences tend to fall under. Because of this, websites such as Netflix, Amazon Video or Hulu Plus have become incredibly popular ways to do some good old fashioned TV binge viewing. But the problem with these sites is that they only allow you to stream the video once per episode or movie. Sure, you can rewatch the video as often as you like. But, if the program takes the video down, you’re out of luck. These sorts of online programs almost never allow you to download or save a copy of what you watch. That’s what led me to investigate into this perceived lack of coverage in the media market. After further examination into the issue, I discovered an entire market of software programs specifically designed to record streaming video. Today’s post on How to Record Netflix Streaming Video Using Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate will examine one of the more premier programs on the market. We will tell you exactly what Wondershare is and how to best use it. If you wish to do so, you can read our recent review on the Wondershare Ultimate Video Converter.
I prefer Netflix to other streaming services because of its generous archive of Television shows and movies. Others may prefer Hulu Plus because of it solely focuses on the latest TV shows. If you’re a Hulu Plus user, you can even watch new episodes of your favorite TV shows the day after it is initially aired. Whatever side you choose in the Hulu Plus vs Netflix debate, owning some sort of streaming video recorder at your disposal will allow you to collect all your favorite shows into a unified, personal archive that you can watch any time regardless of a connection to the internet. Multiple options exist which allow you to record these streamed video files. We here at Burnworld prefer the newest version of Wondershare Ultimate Video Converter. Other free streaming video recorders exist such as Audacity, Debut, and Krut. However, most of these freebie programs suffer from quality limitations in the final file.
How to Record Netflix Streaming with Wondershare Video Converter Ultimate
First things first, you must obviously download the program from its official website. This is a professional tool. So, you’ll need to purchase a license to gain the full range of functionality. You can opt to simply try out the free trial to find out if this program is the best one for you. This software is our main choice. But, rest assured, alternate programs work in a similar fashion. Once you understand how to use one of these programs, you should be set to use the rest of them. After you download the installation file, simply run it just as you would with any other program. It’s really quite easy with the help of the built-in wizard.
After completing the installation, open the program and select the option “Video Recorder” from the menu. Then, log into your Netflix (or Hulu Plus) account, start streaming the video you would like to record, and relax: while you watch the video, this software will automatically do its job and record everything for you. A REC button colored in red will appear on the top of your screen to assure that you are correctly recording everything smoothly. To prevent a poor recording quality, make sure the audio runs at the beginning of the streamed video. If you detect any problems, simply restart your browser after selecting the “Video Recorder” from the software’s menu. When the video you watch finishes, Wondershare Ultimate Video Converter will automatically open up an output folder where you will see the completed video file. Wondershare sets the format of the file as WMW by default. The great thing about Wondershare is that once the video finishes recording, you can change its format by loading it into the program and converting it to a different format.
Wondershare also offers a screen recorder for Mac. So, even if you don’t use a PC, rest assured that you can still use Wondershare without issue. Macs’ operating system offer a built-in system that works as a default screen recorder. However, this specialized software is much more efficient and feature packed. To get the Wondershare version for Mac, you just need to select the appropriate option from the downloading screen in the aforementioned link.
