How It Works

PlayOn Desktop is a PC-based streaming video recorder and media server. When you select a show or movie from the PlayOn desktop app, an invisible browser opens and starts streaming the video from the selected streaming site (such as Netflix, or Hulu). PlayOn records online videos as they stream — just like a cable DVR or TiVo. Recordings are saved as .MP4 video files which can be easily transferred to an iPad or iPhone via iTunes, or to an Android mobile device. As an added bonus, when you play back recordings of network TV shows via an iOS, Roku, Chromecast, Android, or FireTV device, PlayOn’s AdSkip automatically skips the ads for you.
