Q6. How can I speed up the download process?

VidiCable supports hardware acceleration with Intel/NVIDIA/AMD graphics cards, which allows for smoother program operation and faster download speeds. However, to fully utilize hardware acceleration, it is important to have the latest version of the graphics cards installed on your computer. Here's how you can check and upgrade your graphics cards:

1. Upgrading your graphics card is simple. Just right-click on the Windows Start menu, select "Device Manager," find "Display adapters," right-click on your graphics card, and choose "Update driver" from the drop-down menu.

2. In case the driver update fails, you can also install the latest graphics driver directly from the manufacturer's website: Intel / NVIDIA / AMD (select the appropriate link based on your computer). After upgrading the graphics driver, please restart your computer to activate the changes.

Q7. What are the differences between External, Internal, and Hardcode Subtitles?

VidiCable offers three different subtitle encoding options to accommodate users' needs for playing videos on various media players or devices. The "External subtitles" mode allows you to save subtitles as separate files.

The "Internal subtitles" mode incorporates subtitles into the output video and allows you to save multiple language subtitles that can be switched as needed while playing the video on some players such as VLC Media player.

If your media players or devices do not have the capability to switch or add subtitles, the "Hardcode subtitles" mode is an excellent option for embedding subtitles directly onto your video. However, please note that you can only save subtitles in one language at a time with this mode.

Q8. What video quality can I download with VidiCable on Amazon or Max?

VidiCable enables you to download HD videos from Amazon or Max. There are three options for video quality (High/Medium/Low) in the settings window that allow you to download videos in different output qualities depending on your device. To download HD videos, please ensure that your computer supports playing HDCP-enabled content; otherwise, you can only record videos with low or medium quality.

To check whether your device supports HDCP-enabled content, please follow this link: https://googlechrome.github.io/samples/hdcp-detection/. Click the "V" icon and choose "1.0" from the drop-down list, then click "Get HDCP Status." If you receive a result similar to the image below, you can download HD videos with VidiCable.
