Q6. How to speed up the download process?

VidiCable supports hardware acceleration with Intel/NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards, which will enable you to run the program more smoothly and speed up the download process. However, to achieve or take full advantage of hardware acceleration, you are required to have the latest version of the graphics cards installed on your computer. Here is how to check and upgrade the graphics cards:

1. The process of upgrading graphics cards is incredibly easy, all you need to do is: right-click the Windows Start menu and choose "Device Manager", find "Display adapters", right-click your graphics card and select "Update driver" in the drop-down list.

2. Sometimes driver upgrades might end in failure. No worries, you can also install the latest graphics driver from your graphics card manufacturer's website: Intel / NVIDIA / AMD (choose the exact one according to your computer). After upgrading your graphics driver, please reboot your computer to activate it.

Q7. What's the difference between External, Internal or Hardcode Subtitles?

VidiCable offers three kinds of subtitles encoding ways to meet users' needs for playing video on different media players or devices. The mode "External subtitles" will help you save subtitles as separate files.

"Internal subtitles" will make the subtitles be built into the output video, which will allow you to save multiple languages subtitles and switch as needed while playing the video on some players like VLC Media player.

If your media players or devices don't have the ability to switch or add subtitles, "Hardcode subtitles" is a great option to help you make the subtitles be burned onto your video. But please note that you can save subtitles in only one language to the video at a time with this mode.

Q8. What video quality can I download with VidiCable? (Amazon)

VidiCable enables you to get HD videos. There are three options for video quality (High/Medium/Low) in the settings window, enabling you to download videos with different output qualities according to your devices. To download HD videos, please make sure your computer supports playing HDCP-enabled content, otherwise, you can only record videos with low or medium quality.

Please click here, click the "V" icon and choose"1.0" from the drop-down list, then tap on "Get HDCP Status" to check whether your device supports HDCP-enabled content or not. If you get a result as below, then you can get HD videos with VidiCable.

Q9. How to get videos at HD quality? (Netflix)

1. Netflix Basic plan doesn't provide high definition viewing, so VidiCable doesn't support to get HD video while working with the Basic plan.

2. Please make sure Netflix plays video in HD quality. First, you need to adjust the Netflix playback setting to High: sign into netflix.com, and select your profile. Under My Profile, select Playback Settings, then find Data Usage, and select High.

If you have done the above setting, but the downloaded video's quality is still poor (at around 480P), please follow these steps to check the original video's quality: Open Netflxi web player on Chrome browser, and play the video. Click "Ctrl" + "Alt" + "Shift" + "D" on the keyboard at the same time, then some details of the video will pop up, where you can check the video's resolution.

3. Netflix provides merely 480P quality for videos from Disney and Marvel on Chrome Web player. So currently, VidiCable does not support recording those videos at HD quality.
