Many people like to learn a Language by Watching Movies and TV. TV shows, series and movies are made for native speakers, so the language that’s used will mostly consist of the lingo used by real folks today. Some suggest that ideally, in order for it to be useful, we should understand 90% of the material as we listen to it. So when you have watched some movies several times, you may just need to listen to them, which can happen when you drive or do housework. 

If you’re feeling particularly productive, you can record segments from TV shows or films. Simply press the record button on your smartphone, to record the segment. Then, you can play it back anytime—while driving in the car, cleaning or taking a shower.

However, if you are a Hulu subscriber, you may find you can’t record the sound from Hulu movies and TV shows due to copyright protection. To record audio from Hulu movies and TV shows, you need to download them to MP4 first and then record with Audacity or Ondesoft Audio Recorder.

Option 1 Record Hulu audio with QuickTime

It’s convenient to use QuickTime when you want to record a small segment.

  1. In the QuickTime Player app on your Mac, go to File > New Audio Recording.
  2. Play the Hulu video you want to record.
  3. Click the Record button to start recording; click the Stop button when you’re done.

However, it can be time-consuming to record the whole movie or TV episode.
