How to get rid of DRM and download Amazon Prime Video videos on PC?

Hyou| 2022-07-04

The Amazon Prime Video app has a download function, but you can download videos using only iOS and AndroidOS smartphones and tablets. However, when downloading videos on a PC, the videos have DRM and cannot be saved using normal methods (record also most free download tools). In this article, we will explain how you can remove DRM from Amazon Prime Video and download it.

What is DRM on Amazon Prime Video?

DRM is a technology that provides measures to prevent copying and downloading, such as copy protection for DVDs and Blu-rays. DRM is also applied to Amazon Prime Video, which darkens the screen when recording and prevents recording. Video content cannot be downloaded to any device other than a smartphone or tablet that can access the application.

What is DRM?

DRM is an abbreviation for "Digital Rights Management. It is also called "Digital Rights Management." It is a technology used to protect the copyrights of streaming video, music, e-books, etc. that are currently being distributed. Digital content is encrypted and access is controlled by the device used, login information, etc. Screenshots and recordings are not possible unless DRM is removed.

Some people think that they can save Amazon Prime Video videos permanently by using recording software or other means, but this is basically impossible if you want to keep them forever. Why? Let me explain with a real-life example!

Saving Amazon Prime Video with general recording software

When forced to record with general recording software, the video playback area is only black; I tried with screen recording software such as Wondershare DemoCreator, VideoProc, and FonePaw, but they all show a black screen. The evidence of this is shown in the image below.

So, is there any software that can download it? Then, I would like to introduce a safe software to download Amazon Prime Video videos.

Can the DRM of Amazon Prime Video be removed?

DRM cannot be easily removed, but with YouTuAmazon, a specialized Amazon Prime downloader, DRM removal can be achieved even for Amazon Prime Video streaming content.

Step 5 Once you have flown to the Amazon Prime Video homepage, "sign in" and search for the video you wish to download.

What are the limitations of Amazon Prime Video's download feature?

  • A single account can download up to 25 movies
  • You can only download to 2 devices with one account
  • Some movies are not available for download
  • Downloaded movies can only be viewed within the Amazon Prime Video app
  • Downloaded movies cannot be stored permanently; they can only be viewed for 30 days (48 hours offline)

*After 30 days, you need to download again. If more than 48 hours have passed while offline, the work can be viewed by going online again

  • To enjoy Amazon Prime Video on a TV or PC monitor, devices such as Fire TV Stick 4K or Apple TV are required.

Therefore, the official Amazon Prime Video app is limited, especially in terms of DRM, and you can only use the easy download function, and you cannot use the download and playback method on a PC or other media player. At that time, you will need to download the video to your PC or other media player.
