Netflix is one of those services that brings joy and entertainment anytime… that is, until your Internet connection fails you or is simply unavailable. WiFi meltdowns happen all the time.

Your media library is most useful in places where access to the Internet is limited or nonexistent. And, watching your favorite movies, documentaries and shows is the best way to get through traveling or time spent with terrible WiFi. By recording Netflix with Replay Video Capture, you can watch your entertainment anywhere — even when Netflix is inaccessible.

How to Download from Netflix:

1. Get Replay Video Capture for Mac or Replay Video Capture for PC.

2. Download the file to your computer, then double-click to launch and follow the instructions to install the program.

3. Locate Replay Video Capture in your Applications (or wherever it is saved) and click to open.

4. Next, log in to your Netflix account and open the video you want to capture. Start playing the video, but immediately pause when it begins.

5. Navigate back to Replay Video Capture and click “Get Video” to automatically find and mark the video on your screen.

7. Click “Record” and Replay Video Capture will automatically start to record the Netflix video in high quality.

8. As you’re recording from Netflix, the Record button will turn into a Stop button, and the Play button becomes Pause. Click on “Stop” when the video has ended.

Voila! Your favorite videos from Netflix are now saved offline.

Save Your Media: Why Netflix Will Never Be Perfect

We love Netflix, but it isn’t a perfect streaming service. The truth is, it can’t be. 

With growing competition, incomplete collections, and temporary trademarks on titles, Netflix’s shortcomings across a myriad of areas will likely hinder it from becoming the “all-powerful streaming service” we thought it might be just a few years ago. These limitations and imperfections are some of the many reasons why it’s important to record Netflix TV shows and movies with Replay Video Capture, and save them for offline viewing before they inevitably disappear.

Market Share

This chart below, created by Nielsen, shows the penetration of streaming services and subscription video on demand services. Netflix leads the pack of streaming online with over 61 million subscribers and 36% of the market, but Amazon and Hulu also take close to 20%.

And, research has shown that Amazon’s popularity and market share is only growing as the company gathers more customers through their Prime service,  gain more title contracts, and generate more original series.

Narrow Collection

At first glance, its impressive library of movies and shows, both original and licensed, seems never-ending. But, it does end. With only around 13,300 titles offered worldwide, Netflix’s collection is actually pretty limited in terms of selection. And, because of the ongoing rivalry between Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, it’s impossible to provide a truly complete catalog at all times and win over the entirety of the market.

Temporary Licensing

Part of this narrow collection is due to the structure and process of licensing content. Netflix is frequently changing up their online offerings; the reliability of their shows and movies are completely dependent on licensing agreements made with networks and filmmakers.

According to Investopedia, these agreements could “allow Netflix to stream all seasons of [a] show in full through its online platform for one, three or five years. The licensing agreement can be renegotiated after the set time period ends, or Netflix could drop the show from its library if viewer interest is not high enough to warrant the cost.”

Essentially, Netflix can drop content on a whim. And what if that show or movie they deemed ‘not popular enough’ was your all-time favorite? Download Replay Video Capture to record and save all of your favorite Netflix content, before time is up!

Netflix Downloader: How to Get All Your Favorite Movies

Netflix isn’t a perfect streaming service. While you can easily find and access many of your favorite online movies, shows and more, you can’t save Netflix offline and truly watch anywhere.

So, how can you securely record from Netflix when the service won’t allow you to? Enter Replay Video Capture, the ultimate Netflix downloader! Easily record anything from Netflix and save the videos back to your computer or other connected device, so you can watch your media library even without the internet.

Here’s a step-by-step guide for how to download anything on Netflix with Replay Video Capture and be able to watch your favorite streaming media anytime, anywhere!

How to Download Netflix to PC:

1. Download and install Replay Video Capture, then launch the program.

2. Open your browser and start playing the video you want to record from Netflix.

3. Click Get Video and Replay Video Capture will automatically find and mark the video on your screen. Then, click Record.

The Best Worst Movies to Stream & Record Now

Some movies are amazingly brilliant, and some are so amazingly bad that it’s a wonder how they were ever conceptualized. Today, we’d like to honor some of those horrible, yet somehow captivating, films available online.

You can stream all of the terrible/awesome movies your heart can handle straight from your browser, then use Replay Video Capture to keep them forever. To get started, just fire up the software, start playing your top picks on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime, and start recording.

Take a look at some of our favorite worst movies to stream and save on Netflix right now:

1. Gigli

If you’ve ever wanted to see J. Lo pretend to be a “fatally gorgeous” gangster, please record and save this movie from Netflix. Ben Affleck (Gigli) also stars in this quintessentially awful/amazing movie from the early 2000’s, in which a kidnapping goes terribly awry. Sloppy, bizarre and yet somehow amazing.

2. Killer Mermaid

Somewhat creepy and terribly written, this flick is perfect for you horror lovers – if you want to laugh rather than being scared. The general plot line involves two American women on a vacation in the Mediterranean, where they stumble upon the lair of (you guessed it) a killer mermaid. This film is available to stream on Netflix, and definitely worth it for your next movie night.

3. Left Behind

Nicolas Cage is reason enough to watch and save this Armageddon based masterpiece from Netflix. In Left Behind, a handful of survivors are “left behind” after millions vanish; the world is plunged into chaos. And then there was Nic Cage.

4. John Dies at the End

Comedy meets terror in this dark flick on Netflix. A new drug, referred to as Soy Sauce, promises an out-of-body experience like no other. People are scrambling for it, but there are (obviously) consequences. We won’t give you any other spoilers — this movie is perfect for livening up a boring evening.

5. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

This movie is actually pretty good if you’re into martial arts flicks, though still laughable compared to the original. Jason Scott Lee stars as a warlord hell-bent on stealing a sword from the good guys (and martial arts masters). Get a hold of this one on Netflix before your next kung fu binge!
