How to Screen Record Abema TV Videos: Pay-Per-View Can Also Be Saved
If you use the technique I'm going to introduce here, you can record Abema TV with the quality shown in the video above, so you can pay only the subscription fee for one month, record all the video titles you want to watch, save them permanently, and cancel your membership.
Now that the "download function" is provided as an official feature of AbemaTV, there seems to be little need to basically record videos, but this technique is good to know.
AbemaTV has the following video titles.
- Some titles are not available for download.
- Titles that will be discontinued after a certain period of time
- Rental titles that require a separate fee from the monthly fee
If you make a quick recording of these and save them permanently, you can easily play them offline using your smartphone or tablet anytime and anywhere.
You can also subscribe to Abema TV for one month and record all the titles you want to watch at once. You can record all the titles you want to watch at once, and then watch them offline using your smartphone, tablet, or computer in an innovative way.
That's why this article will explain how to record video content from the video streaming service, AbemaTV.
By the way, the recording method I'm going to show you is a completely legal technique that is not illegal, so you can record VOD without worry!
Let's take a look at how to record video content from the video streaming service, AbemaTV.
Currently, AbemaTV has been renamed "ABEMA," but it has not spread among people, so I will call it "AbemaTV" in this article.
Recording AbemaTV's video content cannot be done on any device, including computers, smartphones, tablets, and HDD recorders.
This is because of the "HDCP" technology that prevents unauthorized video recording.
This encrypts the video and audio output from HDCP-compatible HDMI, DVI-D, and DisplayPort ports.
In order to play back encrypted video and audio correctly, the input device must also be equipped with HDCP-compliant HDMI, DVI-D, or DisplayPort.
By preparing the items listed below, you'll be able to record Abema TV.
What you need for Abema TV recording
- Personal computer (+ Internet connection)
- AbemaTV account
- Dedicated recording software
Aside from the basic items that are essential for video playback, such as a computer, internet connection, and video streaming service account, recording AbemaTV requires a special recording software called "Y2Mate AbemaTV Downloader"
One of the major economic benefits is that you can compress the fees you pay considerably by repeatedly signing up and cancelling AbemaTV, focusing on when you need it.
For example, if there are videos you want to watch on Abema TV, you can pay only for one month, record all the videos you want to watch and save them permanently, and then you can watch them without paying a single yen thereafter, which is a considerable savings.
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.
This section will explain the process of recording video content from the video streaming service AbemaTV.

A reader of this site gave me an effective way to deal with the problem of not being able to download videos even after following the above steps, and I'd like to share it with you here!
Just right-click on the downloaded software installer to open the menu and select "Run as administrator" to install it. 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 AbemaTV Downloader allows you to record AbemaTV 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 enough to check the performance of the software, but obviously not enough to use it for a long time.
So if you want to continue to record numerous video titles with the Y2Mate AbemaTV Downloader in the future, purchase the paid version.
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?
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.
