Sometimes, you want to know how to record Amazon Prime Video or be able to rip the Prime Video to share your favorite videos with others or save them for later.
However, this is not going to be readily possible with Amazon’s use of Digital Rights Management (DRM), which restricts access to playlists. As such, only authorized or authenticated users can record the screen. Nonetheless, there are some ways how to record or rip Amazon Prime Video to your Windows PC, Mac, Android, or iPhone.
Of course, it’s against Amazon’s policy to record the screen of Prime Video. Amazon and the owners of the video are simply protecting their ownership to prevent piracy incidents. But if you believe you still need to enjoy Amazon Prime Video offline on your Windows PC, Mac, iOS, or Android, this guide shows you the steps to follow to record Amazon Prime Video or rip Amazon Prime Video and save it to your preferred folder.
