Hi, since this discussion has started I searched a lot and tried some screen records and tried to capture Netflix live video streams, the super screen capture it is talking about below doesn't work, I tried it to record a Netflix movie, but didn't work, it recorded just the sound of the movie, so it doesn't capture streaming Netflix. Also tried replay media catcher as it seems to be a Netflix Video Stream Recorder, but it didn't work at all, all what it captured were just adds, so it doesn't work for Netflix either.
I also found Tunebite Netflix Video Downloader, I got just its free version which gave me just 1 minute Netflix recording, as it's limited, but I downloaded tons of youtube videos with it.
You should try it yourself to see if it's worthing to pay for it to capture movies from streaming online movies sites.
Btw, I found a tutorial about how to use Tunebite Netflix Video Stream Recorder to capture Nteflix live video streams. Take a look at it yourself and I hope this wou ...more

If the video there is a streaming video like in youtube. The effective way in getting it off your browser is using Ant Video Downloader.

Try replay media catcher, it could be used as a Netflix video stream recorder since it captures everything you're doing on your desktop, so it might captures Netflix live video streaming also.
Indeed, downloading Netflix streams is a little bard, because Netflix files are protected so they cannot be downloaded, that's why you need to use a special Netflix Video Downloader, to capture streaming Netflix.

I googled a bit also on how to capture Netflix Video streaming. Unfortunately I didn't manage to find a good Netflix Video Downloader, though I found a thread on some forum where a user said he found out how to capture and save Netflix live video streams. Here's the link to that forum where they discussed about how to record Netflix movies:

Hello, I'm interested too in finding a way to record and save Netflix video streaming so I also looked around google to see if others have found a way to record Netflix movies.
Here's a google search for "capture Netflix movies":

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=capture+netflix+ movies

You should find there some interesting results on how to capture Netflix video streaming. I also saw round there a couple of Netflix Video Downloaders that claimed they record Netflix movies. Haven't tried any Netflix Video Downloader yet, but will be back with more when I do find one that works.

I think super screen capture does not work to capture and save Netflix video streaming, to be honest I don't see anything on their website related to how to record Netflix movies with its help. Form what I can tell, it says there that it is able to do screencapture from online flash , this means it is only able to record videos from YouTube and other such websites. And anyways since Netflix movies are encrypted in some way , if you ask me this will definitely not capture Netflix video streaming.
You probably need to search for a Netflix Video Downloader with screencapture functions especially created to record Netflix movies.

You cannot download Netflix movies, but you can capture Netflix live video streaming, because Netflix movies are protected somehow and you cannot download them but you can capture the Netflix movies using a Netflix Video Stream Recorder. I stumbled a while ago on a forum and I found that Super Screen Capture would capture streaming Netflix. You should give it a try, I didn't try it myself because I didn't need it to record something, but I guess it will record Netflix movies.

This is the first time I've heard someone want to record Netflix movies.I'm not sure if it is actually possible to capture and save Netflix video streaming, have you tried searching on google for a solution to record Netflix movies? If you're not the only one who has this curiosity about Netflix live video streams maybe some other user has already found a working Netflix Video Downloader that is able to successfully capture Netflix video streaming.
At least it's a start, if you ask me.
