Owned by Sony Pictures Entertainment Company, Sony Crackle is a free streaming service to watch your favorite movies, TV shows, and original series from Sony. The service is available in three languages (English, Portuguese, and Spanish), and users can access their favorite content on connected devices, including smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, Mac, Windows, and gaming consoles.

Crackle primarily runs on ads and provides no native option for downloading videos. So if you want to save your favorite movies, the only option is to record Crackle videos. To do this, you simply need the free video recording software at your disposal. This article will reveal a smart screen recorder and the simple steps it takes to record Crackle videos for offline watching.

Why Record Crackle?

Streaming your favorite movies on Crackle is not always convenient, especially when you're traveling, speeding past areas with poor internet connectivity. Here are four reasons why recording is your best option.

#1. No access to download

Crackle encryption technology prevents users from downloading videos. Thus, if you wanted to save a movie for offline watching you'd require a third-party application. 

#2. Avoid the Ads

Crackle relies on advertising to generate revenue for Sony. That's why those bothersome 30-second clips pop up on your screen now and then. But you won't have to go through such agony if you record your favorite content off of Crackle.

#3. Internet connection

You need reliable hardware and good internet upload speeds to have a great live stream. But such favorable conditions are not always available, so the content you're streaming may not come off with the right quality. Recording, however, guarantees consistent quality and flow throughout your movies.

#4. Filter out random choices

On streaming platforms like Crackle, it's tempting to try seeing too many movies simultaneously because they're all over the place. And this dullens the overall experience. But when you save them off the platform, it removes the background noise so you can easily concentrate on a single series until you're done with it.
