This feature has some limitations like you can only download Netflix shows and movies on your mobile devices as of now. You can download on your android and iOS smartphones. You don’t have the option to download the Netflix movies and shows on your desktop from browsers.
The download option is available for all the videos but apart from original shows. The only selected movies and shows are available for download for offline. But this features let you use the max of its videos and shows to take offline.
Where to find downloaded videos on Netflix?
The in-app menu, you can see a hamburger icon on the top left just tap it and you can see two more options that are My downloads and other is the download option. You can see all your downloaded in my downloads. If you want to download more videos or TV shows from Netflix then choose the second one and add more videos to my downloads
How to solve “You can have too many Netflix video downloads” issue?
If you download more videos then you will get a notice saying you have too many downloads. This happens when you exceeded the maximum number of simultaneous downloads that are of the same title and from the same license agreement. To solve this simply delete some of the downloaded videos that you have watched already. By doing this you can download more videos offline.
No, you can’t share Netflix videos with friends or any others. If you try to connect it to your PC for doing some tricks to get the video, you won’t find at all on your PC. Even you won’t find the file on you mobile file directory. So there is no chance to try for sharing or doing any such activities.
How to Watch Netflix videos on mobile video players?
You can’t watch any of Netflix videos on other players apart from the Netflix. The movies or TV shows that you have downloaded for offline or only available to watch in Netflix app. But you can’t watch in any other mobile default video player apps or third-party apps
Can Netflix downloads be played on your TV via Chromecast?
No, you can’t use your Chromecast to play downloaded videos on you TV. This is one of the limitations for this download feature. To stream the video all you need is to delete that particular video which you have downloaded for offline and you can stream it. If not you will see the same video default instead of streaming. If you search for the video on home screen then the Netflix app will pick up the downloaded video by default. By this you can’t cast the video, just delete the video from download list and stream for casting.
Can I pause Netflix downloads?
Yes, you can use pause option for pausing the videos but not a single video. If you pause then all the videos are paused. Here, is another limitation that you can’t select the priority of videos that to download first and last. If you started downloading the videos then you must wait for those videos to download in order you can’t pause one video and download another. Netflix videos start from scratch if your download fail in middle then it won’t get started from that point. It starts from beginning the data will be lost and loads freshly
