This section will explain what you need to record Amazon video content from the Amazon Prime Video video streaming service.
By preparing the items listed below, you'll be able to record Amazon Prime Video.
What you need for recording
- Personal computer (+ Internet connection)
- Amazon Prime Video account
- Dedicated recording software
Except for the basic items essential for video playback, such as a computer, internet connection, and video streaming service account, recording Amazon Prime Video requires a dedicated recording software called "Y2Mate Amazon Downloader".
The main economic benefit is that you can compress the fees you pay considerably by repeatedly signing up and cancelling Amazon Prime Video, focusing on when you need it.
For example, if there are videos that you want to watch on Amazon Prime Video, you can pay only for one month to record and permanently store all the videos you want to watch, and then you can watch them without paying a single penny thereafter, saving you a lot of money.
Also, the advantage of being able to comprehensively download video content that is no longer being distributed is also very modest.
The advantage of being able to record rental movies that cost extra is also huge.
Once you record it, you don't have to worry about the expiration date, and most importantly, you will be able to watch the same title anytime and anywhere without having to rent it again, which is quite a win-win situation.
Considering the above uses, I guess it makes a little more sense to pay 10,000 yen for recording software.
Of course, it is best to use the full version of the software, which has no functional limitations whatsoever, but a free trial version is also available, so you may want to use the free trial version first to see how the software performs.
In the next section, I will finally explain how to record using the "Y2Mate Amazon Downloader".
This section will explain the process of recording video content from the Amazon Prime Video video streaming service.
Video Recording Flow
- Install the Y2Mate Amazon Downloader
- Start recording
- There is a limit to the number of recordings in the free trial version.
Install the Y2Mate Amazon Downloader
First, go to the following URL and install the recording software "Y2Mate Amazon Downloader" on your computer.
Click on the button labeled "Free Download" to download the installer.
When the installation screen appears, click "Quick Install" to start the installation.
Wait for a while for the installation to complete.
Depending on your internet connection, it should take about five minutes to complete the process.
When you see "Launch Now," click on it.
This will automatically launch the "Y2Mate Amazon Downloader".
Click "VIP Service" on the left side of the "Y2Mate Amazon Downloader" operation screen.
This will display a list of supported streaming services, and click on "Amazon".
When the Amazon Prime Video screen appears, log in to Amazon.
Once you are logged in, play the video content you want to record.
This will automatically bring up a screen where you can select the video content you want to record, so select the content you want to record.
After making your selection, click "Download Now" if you want to download it right now, or "Add to Queue" if you want to select other videos to download at once.
Click "Downloading" on the left side of the operation screen, and you will see the selected video title displayed.
If there are other video titles you want to record, click "Home" on the left side of the operation screen and follow the same procedure to select the videos.
When you are done selecting the videos you want to record, click "Start All" to start recording (downloading).
Now all you have to do is wait for the recording to finish.
When the recording (download) is complete, click "Download" on the left side of the operation screen.
You can check the recording data of the video you just selected.
By the way, to see the specific destination of the downloaded video file, you can click on the folder icon on the right side of the line where the video file is displayed.
If you are still unable to download the video due to some problems after following the above steps, you may be able to solve the problem by following the instructions below.
Reinstall the software using "Run as administrator".
The procedure is simple, just right-click on the software installer downloaded from the Y2Mate official website to open the menu and select "Run as administrator" to install the software.
The rest of the procedure is the same as above, so if you are experiencing any problems with the software, you should definitely try "Run as administrator".
As I mentioned, Y2Mate Amazon Downloader allows you to record Amazon Prime Video with very simple operations, but there is a limit to the number of times you can record with the free trial version.
The free trial version limits the number of recordings to three, and if you want to record more than that, you have to get the paid version.
It's good enough to check the performance of the software, but clearly not good enough to use it for a long time...
So if you want to continue to record numerous video titles with the Y2Mate Amazon Downloader in the future, buy the paid version.
This section will explain how to watch video data recorded from the video streaming service Amazon Prime Video.
There are two main ways to watch a movie: on a computer and on a smartphone or tablet. The following is the most orthodox way to watch a movie on a computer.
If you want to watch it on your computer, it is convenient to use a free media player.
Among them, I recommend the standard free software "VLC Media Player" because it is known for its ease of use that even beginners can use without any confusion.
Of course, being free software, there is zero financial burden, so if you don't have a specific media player, why not take the opportunity to download it?
How to play recorded video data
Once you launch VLC Media Player, all you have to do is click and drag the video data you want to play into the player.
This will automatically play the video for you.
The basic operations are also designed to be understood intuitively, such as the "Play" and "Stop" buttons, so you'll be able to use it right away.
For more detailed information on how to use VLC media player, please refer to the following article.
The video data recorded by the method described in this article can also be put on your iPhone or iPad for viewing.
I have published a separate article explaining the specific method, so check it out if you are interested.
