How to Watch Netflix Video Offline

Many of you must know how to watch videos online on Netflix. Just open the Netflix website on your browser, enter the title of the TV series or movie you want to watch, and you can watch it online on the web browser. If you have the Netflix app installed on your computer, open the app to search for the video, and then you can watch them online.

Here comes the question, what to do if you want to watch Netflix videos offline? To play them offline, you have to download the videos beforehand.

So, if you are a Mac computer user, or want to watch Netflix videos offline without limitations, then read on, a method is prepared for you.
