Hi! As one of the most popular streaming services, Hulu uses DRM Protection to prevent users from screen recording or screenshotting video content. In other words, if you use some common screen recorders or screen capture tools, you will always see a black screen image instead of video content. 

Luckily, there are some workable ways you can try to avoid the black screen issue while recording or screenshotting on Hulu. All the ways are effective! So, in the following, I will show you the details:

Method 1. Use a professional screen recorder/screen capture tool

As far as I'm concerned, I think the most effective way to screen record on Hulu without a black screen is to use a powerful third-party screen recorder. EaseUS RecExperts is such a versatile tool you can try. 

Unlike other third-party screen recorders on the market, this software provides a special recording mode called Enahnce Mode, which lets you screen record on almost any streaming service without a black screen, including Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, etc. You can even capture this video content with up to 4K video resolution! Moreover, it offers a screenshot tool, with which you can effortlessly take any screenshot while recording. Once done, both videos and images will be automatically saved on your device. Last but not least, it can run perfectly on both Windows and macOS computers!

Record Anything on Your Windows PC

  • Install EaseUS RecExperts and launch it on your computer.
  • Play the movie you want to record or take screenshots on Hulu. Next, return to the screen recorder and select the Enhance mode on the left panel.
  • Then, choose the area that you want to record or snapshot. After that, click REC to start your task.

Method 2. Use another device

Another is a common way, and that is to use another device, like a camera or mobile phone. You can use the other device to record or take a picture of Hulu. However, compared to the first method, I personally prefer the professional screen recorder, EaseUS RecExperts, as the output file's quality can be guaranteed!

That's all! I hope you can adopt my suggestions!
