U-NEXT 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.

In addition, you can subscribe to U-NEXT for only one month and record all the titles you want to watch at once. You can also think of innovative ways to use U-NEXT, such as using a smartphone, tablet, or computer to watch them in an offline environment.

Explanation of how to record U-NEXT

That is why this article will explain how to record video content from the video streaming service U-NEXT.

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 quick look at how to record video content from the U-NEXT video streaming service.

About U-NEXT recordings

Basically, recording U-NEXT 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.

HDCP (High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection) is a copyright protection technology that aims to prevent unauthorized copying of digital content.

Video and audio output from HDCP-compatible HDMI, DVI-D, and DisplayPort ports will be encrypted.

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.

If you record normally, you will get a black screen, but if you use the techniques described in this article, you will be able to record videos beautifully!

What you need to record U-NEXT

By preparing the items listed below, you'll be able to record U-NEXT.

What you need for U-NEXT recording

  • Personal computer (+ Internet connection)
  • U-NEXT account
  • Dedicated recording software

Except for basic items essential for video playback such as a computer, internet environment, and video streaming service account, recording U-NEXT requires a dedicated recording software called "Y2Mate U-NEXT Downloader".

The main economic benefit is that you can compress the price you pay considerably by not subscribing to U-NEXT continuously, but only when you need it.

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.

Let's install the software and start recording!

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.

How to record on U-NEXT

This section explains the process of recording video content from the video streaming service U-NEXT.

Install the Y2Mate U-NEXT downloader.

First, go to the following URL and install the recording software "Y2Mate U-NEXT Downloader" on your computer.

Official site: Y2Mate U-NEXT Downloader

  • 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 U-NEXT Downloader".

Start recording

Click on "VIP Service" on the left side of the "Y2Mate U-NEXT Downloader" operation screen.

 

This will display a list of compatible streaming services, so click on "U-NEXT".

When the U-NEXT top page appears, click "Login" on the left side of the screen to log in.

Once you are logged in, play the video content you want to record.

You will then automatically be presented with a screen where you can select the video content you want to record. After making your selection, click "Download Now" if you want to download it now, or "Add to Queue" if you want to select other videos and download them all at once.

Click "Downloading" on the left side of the operation screen, and you will see the video title you selected is 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).

When the recording (download) is complete, click "Download" on the left side of the operation screen. You will be able to see 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.

What to do if you can't download a video?

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.

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".

There is a limit to the number of recordings in the free trial version.

As I mentioned, "Y2Mate U-NEXT Downloader" allows you to record U-NEXT 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 "Y2Mate U-NEXT Downloader" in the future, buy the paid version.

How to watch recorded videos

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?

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.
