There are many ways to screen record Amazon Prime Video depending on the device you are using. If you have a Windows PC, using a screen recording software will be an easy way. There are two types of tools to screen record Amazon Prime: 

Generic screen recorders capture any content played back on your PC screen. Like this you will transfer any content played back on your device into a video file. You need to start and stop recording manually. The video is recorded at 1x speed, that means that the duration to play the entire video is equal to the recording duration. If you forget to stop recording, you will get a longer video that needs to be cut with a video editor. The positive aspect is that using such a generic screen recorder is very easy.

The second type of screen recording software has extended features that fit to specific streaming services, let's call them specialized screen recorders. They have an individual user interface for most popular streaming services like Amazon Prime Video. That gives to users more convenience for the recording process. Some of them automatically start and stop recording or record at high speed (more than 1x speed).

Besides screen recording applications, some devices might have a built-in screen recorder. We will also show you a way how to watch Amazon Prime content on your mobile devices.
