Hi there! I am sorry to tell you that Netflix doesn't allow screen recording!

As one of the most popular live streaming sites (OTT platforms), Netflix does not allow any screen recording, copying, or reproducing of their video content, aiming to prevent piracy of video content. According to its terms of use, all users cannot download or record any videos from Netflix. Violating this policy can result in the suspension or termination of a user's account.

If you use common screen recorders to capture videos from Netflix, you will find that there is only a black screen instead of other content, and that's because of the DRM protection. 

But suppose you still want to save your favorite movies from Netflix or other OTT platforms. In that case, you can try a powerful video recording software called EaseUS RecExperts, which is able to record any protected videos in high quality.

Besides, it supports recording up to 4K video resolution, which means you can capture and enjoy the videos offline in almost the original quality. Most importantly, your video recordings will contain NO watermark. Below is a simple guide you can check:

Step 1. Download and launch this screen recorder, and play the video that you want to record in your browser.

Step 2. Click Enhanced mode on the left sidebar and choose Netflix on the interface.
