FAQs about Recording Prime Video on PC/Mac/iPhone/Android

Can you record an Amazon Prime Video?

Amazon has released a built-in DVR option for live streams like Thursday Night Football, but it doesn't allow you to download Amazon Prime videos to your local drive. You can only store recordings online in the Prime Video app, so if you want to watch Amazon Prime videos offline, this feature won't help. To record Amazon Prime videos for permanent saving, you'll need to use professional third-party recorders or Prime video downloaders (eg. Kigo Amazon Prime Video Downloader).

Why can't I record Prime Video?

Generally, it is not permitted to record or rip copyrighted content on Prime Video or any other streaming sites for commercial use. In other words, it is probably no problem if you just record the video for offline watching or other personal use.

What are the limitations of recording Prime videos

While screen recording allows you to capture the video, it may not be the ideal solution for everyone. The recording quality might not be as high as the original video, and you might capture unwanted elements like system notifications or other sounds. Additionally, downloading copyrighted content without permission is illegal in most countries.

Final Words

In conclusion, recording Prime Video on PC, Mac, iPhone, or Android is a convenient way to save your favorite shows and movies for offline viewing. Whether you're using a screen recorder or a dedicated video downloader, make sure to respect copyright laws and terms of service. For PC/Mac users, you can try Kigo Amazon Video Downloader to record your favorite Amazon Prime videos and save them with any audio tracks and subtitles. Happy recording!
