Last update: June 7th 2021

By subscribing to HBO Max, you will get access to movies, series, and originals, for example, Mortal Kombat, Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Warrior, Kong Skull Island and many more. As long as they are available, you can watch them as often as you like. But what will you do if your favorite video will be removed? Then you will need an HBO Max recorder that will screen record the video as an MP4 file to your PC.

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.
