have, nor want, a smartphone.
Amazon have available applications to allow downloading of programmes
for later viewing to smartphones, so they are not against the practice.
I want to download programmes to my PC in the same way. I use Ubuntu
14.04, on a 64-bit Samsung PC.
My browser is Firefox 43.0, but as soon as I connect to Amazon Prime and
try to just watch a programme, I am immediately told that Firefox is no
good, and Chrome is suggested.
I installed Chrome, and I can watch programmes on Amazon Prime. But how
to download them? I tried the Chrome version of Video Download Helper,
and although it offers several versions, all mp4, of varying sizes, of
programmes, whichever ones I download won't play, all I get is the
file's title, and then nothing.
The first question is: What is a working way of downloading a programme
from Amazon Prime Video to my PC?
The second question: If Video Download Helper is the way to do it, how
do I make it work?
Any help welcome. I can find no suggestions online other than to
re-install chrome, which I have done.
I tried to send the HDMI signal out to a recorder, but the PC overheats
and shuts down!
