The current situation is truly quite distressing, primarily because the official Amazon offline feature is DRM protected, thus necessitating us to use the Prime Video app for offline video playback. However, this frequently results in compatibility issues.

Therefore, if it were possible to save Amazon videos to MP4 format for local offline playback, such issues would not arise. Furthermore, even after our Amazon subscription expires, we would still be able to watch previously downloaded videos offline locally.

In the following content, we will present a method to enable you to watch amazon prime videos offline in plain mp4 and mkv format.

How to Watch Prime Video Offline in MP4/MKV Without Limits

As previously mentioned, the offline content on the Prime Video application expires within 48 hours after viewing, and many Prime videos may sometimes become inactive due to copyright issues.

Here we suggest you use an Amazon Downloader. By removing DRM protection on Windows/Mac, you can convert Prime videos to pure MP4/MKV format and offline playback with any local player is possible.
