Many people search for amazon video downloader chrome extension and wonder what it is. Actually the chrome extension is called Prime Video Downloader. However, it is not designed to download movies and Tv shows from Amazon Prime Video, Amazon’s video streaming service. This downloader for video allows you to download video you like from Instagram, Vimeo, and Facebook.

How to download movies from Amazon Prime?

You can download Prime Video titles for offline viewing on Fire tablet, iOS, Android, macOS, or Windows 10.

To download Prime Video titles, open the Prime Video app on your device, and find the title you want to download. In the Prime Video app for Android and Windows 10, you’ll be able to select where to save downloaded titles. 

  • For movies: Select the option to download the title from the detail page.
  • For TV shows: There’s an option download the entire season. To download individual episodes, select the download icon on the list of episodes.

The limitations of Amazon Prime Video downloads:

While downloading content and media on Amazon Prime Video is incredibly convenient, there are some limitations.

  • First, once you download a movie or show, you’ll have 30 days to watch it before it “expires,” aka gets deleted. And once you start watching a movie or episode, you’ll have 48 hours to complete it before it expires, meaning you’ll have to stream it or just download it again — if it’s still available, that is.
  • Travelers: If you’re going abroad, like outside the U.S. or the country where your Amazon Prime membership is, keep in mind that your downloaded titles might not play if you connect to the internet at your destination if they’re not also available in that region as well. Amazon Originals tend to be available everywhere, so those are probably safe, but the regionally distributed third-party titles might not play.
  • Also worth noting is the fact that you lose access to your downloaded titles if you cancel your Amazon Prime subscription.
  • You can download available titles to only two devices at one time. If you have already downloaded a title to two devices, you will need to delete it from one of them before downloading to another device.
  • Not all video titles can be downloaded.
