Even though the "download function", which is an official DMM tool, is no longer required to record videos, this technique is well worth learning.

The following video clips are available on DMM.

  • HD version for streaming video (expiration date indefinite).
  • Streaming video (expiration date: indefinite)
  • HD streaming video (expiration: 2 days, 7 days, 30 days, etc.)
  • Streaming video (expiration: 2 days, 7 days, 30 days, etc.)

The recordings of the first and second above do not have an expiration date.

The two bottom options are rental purchases. This means that you cannot watch them for longer than you've agreed to.

Recording and saving the video quickly with an expiration day allows you to easily play it offline from any smartphone or tablet.

HD quality can be more expensive than the rental version. This is why it's appealing to be able customize your videos at a lower 1,000yen. This article will help you record video content from DMM.com.

By the way, I am going to show you a legal recording technique that isn't illegal. You can record without any worries! Let's have a quick look at recording video content using DMM.com's video streaming service.

Recording on DMM.com

DMM video content is not possible to record on any device, even smartphones, tablets, or HDD recorders.

This is due to "HDCP" technology which prevents unauthorized video recording.

HDCP (Highbandwidth Digital Content Protection), a copyright protection technique, aims at preventing unauthorized copying.

This article will explain how to record videos using this particular item.

What you need to record?

Preparing the items below will allow you to record DMM.

  • Personal computer (+ Internet Connection)
  • DMM.com account
  • Software for recording dedicated to your needs

Except for essential equipment for video playback like a computer, internet connection and video streaming service account; DMM recording requires special recording software called " StreamGaGa DMM downloader".

The biggest economic benefit is the ability to reduce the cost of renting video with a lower expiration date, instead of purchasing the more expensive indefinite version.

DMM's indefinite video titles can be more expensive than 1,000yen. But the rental videos that have expiration dates are priced lower. You will find it much easier to rent and record the rental video than the indefinite. The cost is less than one cent.

It's great to know that you can save the video to your computer and watch it anytime you like, without ever having to pay anything.

The benefit of being able download complete video content that is not being distributed anymore is also very small.

After you save and record the video, it will be available on your phone or television permanently. This is a great benefit.

While the full software is the best, there are no functional limitations. There is a free trial version available. This will allow you to test out the software's capabilities.
