How to Play Disney+ Video on VLC?

VLC is an open-source media player software and also an academic project for streaming video, which began in Paris in the mid-1990s. Why VLC is still popular now is that it runs under all popular operating systems and supports a wide variety of video formats. As a fan of VLC and Disney+, you may have tried to play the downloads of Disney+ on VLC. The result turns out negative all the time. The fact is that the downloaded videos on the Disney+ app are encrypted so that they are only playable within the app. If you want to play your favorite Disney+ movies or shows on VLC, you need to download them in MP4 or MKV format.

DispCam is the best video downloading tool in the market, which is capable of downloading high-resolution movies and TV shows from Disney Plus directly. It can save multilingual audio tracks and subtitles while downloading Disney Plus videos in MP4 or MKV format. What’s more, DispCam offers three kinds of subtitles: external subtitles, internal subtitles, and hardcode subtitles. If you need separate subtitles files, DispCam also allows you to save the subtitles files as SRT files independently. DispCam is designed with a special information processing system, allowing you to find the videos you want to download by name or URL and download them at high speed.

Moreover, DispCam provides two options of video codec: H.264 and H.265. The H.265 version will take up half as much storage space as the H.264 version in the same video.

Besides, all the videos downloaded by DispCam will never expire, and you can watch them offline on VLC or any other media player that you prefer.
