Can you edit videos in editing software after you use Playon to download it?

I used to use PlayOn a lot and edited the files without issue. Haven't tried used it recently so best to verify again that it's still working.

Same here. It's been 2 or 3 years since I last used my copy. At that time the downloaded files were H.264 .mp4 files, 720p at 3 Mbps bitrate, i.e., barely qualifying as HD -- but viewable if your TV screen wasn't too large and you weren't too fussy. I used to use Plex and my Fire TV to view them on the TV. I assume the OP is aware the time required to download a file is equal to the time it takes to view the video (?). Not an issue if you aren't impatient.

Did you get it working? Are you using PlayOn for the desktop or PlayOn cloud?

The biggest thing to watch out for is variable frame rate video. VideoReDo does not support variable frame rate video. So if there is a setting in PlayOn that allows you to select between constant frame rate and variable frame rate make sure you select constant.
