Learn here how to record Amazon Prime Video in three steps. 

Important: DMCA 1201
The US Copyright Act (DMCA) stipulates in Article 1201 that no "effective protection" of copyright-protected content may be circumvented.
The tool "Audials Movie" presented here fulfills these requirements by exclusively accessing unencrypted images of the video being played using "Screen Recording" technology.
Contents that are only played by the streaming provider with effective DRM protection against recording - this is sometimes the case, for example, for videos in the highest resolution levels - can therefore not be saved with it.
