  • Due to the upgraded DRM schemes applied on Dec. 1, some timely fixes were made in this new version, however, we still need more time to correct all the other problems.
    Here below is the current status of the streaming services:
    - For Peacock, only part of videos can be downloaded for now.
    - For Netflix/Hulu/Paramount+/Apple TV+/Roku/Joyn/RTL Plus/U-NEXT/Rakuten TV/Discovery+/Paravi/dTV/FOD, most of the videos can be downloaded as usual, only the newly released ones will switch to the new re-encoding mode. (The audio quality is down to AAC in this mode, and the download speed will also be slightly affected but the video quality remains almost close to the original.)
    - For Amazon/Disney+/HBO Max/Tubi/FANZA/R18 and others, videos can be downloaded normally.
