AnsweredHow Can I Record Protected Videos in Windows 10?

Guys. I was trying to record a video from YouTube, but I found that my recorded file was just a black screen. I learned that it's because the video was encrypted by YouTube. How can I fix it? Do you have any ideas?

Sometimes, you will find that your recorded videos show nothing but a black screen on your computer. Just as you have learned, this situation occurs because some videos are encrypted to prevent users from recording them. In my experience, I've found a screen recorder that can help you with it, EaseUS RecExperts. Here is a download button for the recorder. Just click on the button and try it:

🎁Here are some main reasons that you might want to choose EaseUS RecExperts: 

  • Streaming services recording: Record streaming services on both Windows and Mac
  • Auto start and stop recording: Set a time for scheduled recording to save your time and effort
  • Virtual background recording: Record with a virtual background to protect your privacy
  • AI-powered noise remover: Remove unnecessary background noise with its built-in noise remover

🧣Follow the steps below to see how to record the protected videos on Windows 10/11:

Step 1. Install and open EaseUS RecExperts on your Windows 10/11. You can select more recording modes from the left sidebar. Click the downward arrow and find the "Enhanced mode". 

Step 2. A window will pop out to remind you that this mode is used to avoid black screens of recorded videos. Read carefully, and then press the "OK" button to go to the next step. 

Step 3. After entering the enhanced mode, you can see the "Rec" button has turned blue. Now, set the recording as the ordinary ways: choose to record with "Webcam", "System sound", and "Microphone". Click the "Rec" button to begin, and stop the recording with the "Stop" button. 

I hope this post has solved your problems!
