How to Play Netflix Videos on VLC Media Player

As a media player, VLC media player is one of the most popular programs on earth. What makes it popular is that this program supports many audio and video compression methods and file formats, including DVD-Video, video CD, and streaming protocols, and it can also work as a streaming media server. However, this program is unable to stream videos directly from streaming media, such as Netflix, because all of the Netflix titles are only allowed to be played within its app. Therefore, people who prefer to use the VLC media player might be looking for a way to play Netflix movies and TV shows on VLC.

To play Netflix videos on VLC, the first thing we have to do is to download Netflix videos as local files. But it is known to all that the downloads of Netflix can't be played on VLC since they are stored in the Netflix server but not on your devices. To be more specific, you need to save Netflix videos as MP4/MKV files first since these two are the most common format that can be saved as local files on your computer. So how can you do that then? A little handy video tool called TunePat Netflix Video Downloader can help you achieve that easily, which can download Netflix videos into MP4/MKV files without limits. Let's see how it works together!
