Wait for the download to complete and press “Save” to save the video file. In addition, when downloading, you can interrupt the download and save the incomplete video at any time. After clicking “Pause”, there will be “Direct Save” that can save half of the downloaded video.
When you are on the video playback page and the video is playing, but the Cococut icon is still gray and have no numbers showed, or some websites have detected the video (showing numbers), but you do not see the resource file list when you click the icon, you can click “Force Download” to start the download task.
If even "Force Download" doesn’t work or you encounter HLS-encryption (encrypted) websites, you can use the “recording mode” to save the video, press “OK” to return to the playback page and refresh, so that the video can continue to play to capture file.
In the recording mode, all the buffered parts will be recorded when playing the movie. You can try to fast forward on the movie playback page, or drag the progress bar to the end of the buffer to speed up the recording, but do not exceed the buffering progress during fast forwarding, otherwise the movie will be divided into two segments.
