yes,only windows Version has this function
Hello - I have a Mac and downloaded Video Converter Ultimate however I don't see the option to record Netflix movies. I tried Firefox and Safari. There is no REC button. Pasting the URL also doesnt work. Is this option only available on PC?
Hi, unfortunately windows version does not support time schedule feature, but our mac version supports this feature. If you have a mac computer, please have a try via this link: http://www.wondershare.com/mac-video-converter-ultimate/
Can the download be set to begin at a certain time - we live in a very remote area and can only use satellite internet which offers us nearly unlimited usage during late night - early morning hours. Can we set this to begin recording/downloading at a certain time?
Hi donut, you can watch the recorded videos without wifi since the recorded file is stored in your computers' local folder. And the recorded video has both sound and pictures, you can have a try.
Can you watch the things you record without wifi? also does it show the movie cuz by the way u guys r sayin it sounds like it just has the sound and no pic.
Will take it into consideration. Thanks for your suggestion.
While I have your attention, a custom resolution option would be great as well. :)
Hi Hone, Thanks for your advice and i will forward your suggestion to our product apartment. Please stay tuned with us.
How about upgrading the software to enable other format recording and not just wmv?
