The reason why you failed to take screenshots of the Amazon Prime Video is that it belongs to the copyrighted content. Streaming services, like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, etc., do not allow users to take screenshots during the playback. All the videos on these platforms are DRM-protected content, so there will always be a black screen whether you try to take screenshots or record the video content.

Luckily, some professional tools can help you take screenshots of the streaming services, including Amazon Prime Video. And one of the most popular programs is EaseUS RecExperts, a versatile screen recorder and screenshot tool.
