Subscribing to Disney Plus will allow you access to a whole load of content that is exclusive to that platform alone. For most, this is precisely the draw that has brought you here.
They generally produce incredibly decent content and can put a lot of it out every year – no doubt aided by their massive budget and international fame. However, you don’t just get that. There’s also a lot of content on there that comes from different sources. So, that’s a lot to choose from!
Because of their range of content, this leads users to wonder exactly how much they can do with the service, what exactly is possible? One question that we have seen a lot of people asking recently is whether they can record this content and then stream it to an alternative device.
Others simply want to save some recorded content so that they can watch it while they have no internet connection. Regardless of your intentions here, we have the answers you are looking for.
How To Screen Record Disney Plus?
Before we get into this properly, because it is a bit of a touchy subject in terms of copyright and piracy, we will need to discuss a few things. The first thing to know is that it is totally illegal to distribute anything you may have taken from the Disney Plus subscription you have.
In fact, it is even forbidden to make copies of this content. These rules are strict, too. So, we would suggest that you get to learn the following information pretty well if you wish to go screen record.
For those of you who are using an app – for example, something you may have downloaded for Android or iOS – to stream Disney Plus content, you are out of luck. Using these methods there is actually no possible way to do it.
It isn’t just that it’s illegal to do so, but they just have it set up in such a way that it can’t be done. You won’t even be able to take a single screenshot and share it.
However, this all changes if you happen to be using Windows. If you are, there are ways to make this happen! So, if you fall into this category and want to screen record Disney Plus, we are about to show you how.
How do I do it?
For those of you who have been streaming your Disney Plus content via a web browser (doesn’t matter which) on your computer, the restrictions that apply to the apps don’t apply to you. As such, you can screenshot at will, any time you like.
The standard screenshot method (Windows and the Print Screen button) will work for you. Alternatively, you can use Window’s snipping tool to achieve the same result.
One thing to know is that there is no such thing on Windows as “screen record”. It just doesn’t come as part of the package. This leaves us at the mercy of third-party apps. However, the search for these is really easy.
There are loads of them out there and they are generally of a high quality. If we were to select some recommendations, we would probably lean toward using either Disney+ Recorder or Audials Movie.
The great thing about these two software options is that they will have a feature built in that allows the user to capture whatever is happening on your screen and then save it. Then, you can always revisit this file at any time you want and enjoy the content – even if you are offline.
So, for that purpose, it is super useful stuff. If you really want to do this on “easy mode”, so to speak, the trick is to opt for the Disney+ Recorder. The advantage this has is that you can log into their app using your normal Disney plus credentials.
Then, any time you play a file, it will save it for you automatically. Of course, you can then access the saved content any time you want thereafter.
The Last Word
Before we wrap this up, we really need to drive home that these copyright laws are deadly serious. To avoid any complications, we would suggest that you do a small bit of reading to make sure that whatever you are doing is in fact legal and above board.
Whatever you do, do not use any content that you have saved for commercial purposes. That will be in direct violation of their terms and can land you in a decent bit of trouble relatively quickly. So yeah, be careful out there!
