Sometimes, people would choose to record videos on the website if there are no download options. This method works well for normal video files.

Fortunately, there are still powerful recording programs to screen capture DRM protected videos, like HD Video Converter Factory Pro. The following post will introduce this software and show how to screen record protected videos in detail. Install the recommended recorder for preparation:

Creators can use different technologies to protect their videos from copyright infringement, make their videos play in a certain program, or for other purposes.

Run HD Video Converter Factory Pro after you install it on your PC. Then click Recorder on the home interface to initiate the Screen Recorder.
First, choose a recording mode from custom, full-screen, game recording, and audio-only recording. (Custom records only part of your screen, and full-screen can capture the whole screen of your computer.) Then you can drag the four border lines to adjust the recording region. Click OK to confirm your recording area.
Choose a recording format from the drop-down list. MP4 (recommended), AVI, MOV, and MKV are available. Set High Quality or leave it as default. Select a frame rate as 10fps, 30fps, or 60fps.
After that, activate the audio source to record DRM protected videos with sound. For instance, check the Desktop to record sound from your computer, check the Microphone to capture audio from your mic, or check both sources to record internal and external voices simultaneously.
Click the inverted triangle button at the bottom to set an output folder. Prepare to play the video you need to record. Then, press REC to screen capture DRM protected videos after a five-second countdown. When you finish, click the stop button or Ctrl + F1 to stop recording. The recorded file will be saved to your local folder automatically.
It’s also a good way to record DRM protected videos on PC with your mobile phone. You don’t need to install and buy any recording software. Just prepare an external phone and screen record with its camera. It’s a low-cost method, and the recording will never show a black screen.
However, the video recorded by a phone may not be so satisfying owing to the recording background, light, angle, noise, etc. Moreover, videos recorded from the computer may be interlaced. So as to avoid these issues, a desktop screen recorder is a better option. If you don’t mind the poor video quality, follow how to screen record protected videos via an external phone:
Step 1. Prepare an external phone with a camera. Fix the camera on the tripod and adjust the recording angle to capture the whole screen of the video.
Step 2. When all is prepared, play the video on your computer or phone. Now, you can start recording.
Step 3. Once done, turn off the phone camera and the protected video. Then you can check the recorded video in your camera roll and view it without restriction.
