“I was wondering if anyone knew the process used and needed to rip movies or TV shows from streaming services Hulu so i can save them onto my PC (I want to keep old cartoons in my native language, as i can’t find any torrents in latin American Spanish). Thanks in advance.”

Do you have the same confusion? Hulu only allows Hulu (No Ads) subscribers to download TV shows and movies on supported mobile device. To rip videos from Hulu on Mac/Windows, a simple method is to use a screen recorder software, record the display capture whilst also recording audio output, leave the program running and its all recorded. But this is not recommended if you’re an audiophile as the quality isn’t super good.
