Understanding Recordings

I'm trying to understand what I can really do with a recording.  So let's say I use Playon to Record "The Flash" from Hulu.  Once that recording is made can I latter transfer it to a networked drive and play it from a PC (on the same network as the PC I have PlayOn installed on) other than the one I used to record it?  Or can I transfer it between PCs directly on the same network rather than streaming it to them?

    Yes, you can copy or move it to other devices (in your household and that restriction is a legal one, not a technical one), including PCs, Macs, Android devices, iPhones, and iPads. It's just like any other MP4 video file you might have.

    Do the other devices have to have playOn installed?  I mean surely there has to be something in place more than the honor system to make sure people don't use recordings inappropriately, right?

    No, you can use any video player (that supports MP4) to watch them. However, AdSkipper requires PlayOn or one of the few other players that recognize the chapter markers. It's not MediaMall's responsibility to enforce copyright law, but they do add the screen at the beginning and end of each recording that has the user's name, email address, and IP address.

    Wow, that's a breath of fresh air when the normal response is to DRM end-users to death!

    Thanks.
