How to Play HBO Max Video on VLC

Recently, the prequel of the legendary series “Game of Thrones” - “House of the Dragon" is continuing to be broadcast on HBO Max, setting a record for the "most watched" since the premiere of a new drama on HBO. In addition to watching online on time, many users choose to download “House of the Dragon" to their devices in advance so that they can enjoy this excellent series offline even on a long trip or on a plane. It's important to note that HBOMax only allows you to download episodes to certain devices (including Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Android phones and tablets, Amazon Fire tablets). While it's convenient to play videos offline on mobile devices, small screens often create a poor experience. But if you want to play HBO Max videos offline with computers, projectors or other devices for better visual effects, the HBO Max app cannot meet your needs.

Fortunately, there's a silver lining. Using a third-party tool like SameMovie HBOMax Video Downloader is an efficient way to help you download and store episodes as MP4/MKV files.
