Can I stream Netflix™ in HD quality?

Streaming in HD uses more bandwidth than streaming in standard definition. Please check with your Internet provider for information on possible Internet data overage charges, as you are responsible for all Internet access charges. You can Manage Bandwidth Usage--the amount of data you use while streaming--by adjusting the video quality of your instant watching experience. Simply visit the Your Account link on the Netflix™ website to change your video quality settings.
How fast does my Internet need to be?
The minimum required connection speed is 0.5Mbps.
While Watch Instantly works with many different levels of broadband, the speed and bandwidth of your broadband Internet connection may impact your viewing experience. Netflix™ streams a little bit of data as a buffer each time you start a movie or TV show. Frequently starting and stopping movies & TV shows will result in a minor increase to the amount of data Netflix™ streams to you per hour. In most cases, this will be less than a few minutes worth.

In most cases of using Audials software it will be always the best to share the Media not with others. If record Media with Audials you should do this only for own usage.There are two types of copy protection, which are implemented by Digital Rights Management (DRM):
1) Protection of content transmission
Contents are transmitted in encrypted form through e.g. internet. Then they are decrypted in the web browser or playback software, and outputted unprotected through the graphics card to the screen. This kind of protection is used for nearly all video-on-demand-services as well as for DVDs. Such contents can technically be recored by Audials screen recording without cracking any copy protection. However, whether a user is permitted to do so depends on the terms of the content service.
2) Protection of content display
Contents are transmitted in encrypted form through e.g. internet. They are also passed to the display by the playback software in encrypted form, too. (This is only possible with compatible display types, like certain HDMI devices). The display will decrypt the data immediately before showing them without allowing the computer to access them. This kind of protection is in use only for BlueRay discs nowadays. Such contents cannot be recorded with Audials, as Audials does not crack any copy protection.
