You may have tried to share Netflix between multiple devices but failed, because you couldn't store Netflix downloads on a memory card or other locations except the Netflix app. In fact, you can only stream Netflix on the web player, or the Netflix app on different devices, and your netflix subscription will limit the maximum devices you can stream on. What's worse is that you find out that the device you want to stream Netflix videos on is not supported by Netflix. It could be frustrating if you encounter these circumstances, especially when you are paying more and more on Netflix.

In case you don’t know, streaming media players, smart TVs, game consoles, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, smartphones, tablets, PCs, and laptops are compatible with Netflix. However, even premium users are allowed to stream Netflix on only 4 devices at a time. If you want to watch Netflix on more (or unsupported) devices by transferring Netflix videos between as many devices as possible, this guide will show you how.

Tutorial: How to Make Netflix Videos Transferrable
