Amazon Prime Video employs strict content protection measures to block any kind of screenshots or screen recording on their application and web player. This restriction results in a black screen when attempting to record or capture Prime Video content, regardless of whether you’re using screen recording software like FonePaw or Movavi, broadcasting tools like OBS Studio, or the built-in screen recording features on your iPhone or Android device.

However, if you wish to save your favorite Prime Video movies and shows for offline viewing, there is an alternative method available that allows you to download them directly in MP4 format. This approach is far more efficient than screen recording, as it saves time, avoids potential recording failures, preserves video quality, retains audio and subtitles, and more. It provides a more capable and reliable way to enjoy Prime Video content offline.

How to download Prime Video directly to MP4?

Prime Video allows offline downloads, but when using the Prime Video app to download movies and TV shows for offline watching, downloaded titles are only available through the Prime Video app on compatible devices. Furthermore, not all content is available for download, and there are also limitations regarding the expiration of offline content.

To overcome these limitations, Pazu Amazon Prime Video Downloader comes into play. This specialized software is compatible with both Mac and Windows platforms. It empowers you to download Prime Video movies and TV shows including those in Freevee to MP4 or MKV format. With Pazu Amazon Prime Video Downloader, you can securely preserve your favorite content forever.
