6 Awesome Hacks for the Ultimate Spotify Experience

Spotify is a force in the music streaming world, providing the world with seemingly endless access to music for all walks of life. Spending a little time with the platform, you’ll find there’s much more to it than just search, find and listen. Whether you consider yourself a casual Spotify user, or are basically glued to the platform, these six tips and tricks for Spotify are sure to enhance your entire music experience — online and offline.

1. Share & Collaborate

Like fighting over a road trip mix CD, but better! Invite your buddies to a collaborative playlist with you online. Because Spotify has music from every genre and era imaginable, you can build an endless playlist with your friends and take it anywhere. Just create a playlist, select options and invite your friends to join.

2. Modify Searches

It’s easy to go into Spotify and search for your go-to band or current obsession, but listeners who really want to open up their options can get into the nitty-gritty with special searches. You can add cool modifiers like: “artist: [artist name]” and “year: [year].” You can also exclude specific albums, years and more.

3. Go Private

We all have guilty pleasure songs or embarrassing audio habits. While Spotify shares listening activity with connected friends by default, you can easily go into a Private Session to block what you’re listening to from reaching your network. To turn this on, just log in to Spotify and go to your Settings!

4. Enhance with Add-Ons

In-browser music controls for Chrome and Firefox users lets you control from your keyboard. Shazam integration lets you track songs and immediately locate them in Spotify. “Where is the Drama” plugin automatically plays the most dramatic part of every song on your playlist. Need we say more? See a few more of our favorites here.

5. Get a Tailored Playlist

If you ask REAL nicely (and also probably have an issue that needs to be dealt with), the @SpotifyCares support account on Twitter has been known to dole out some amazing, personalized playlists (and assistance) in response. Seriously, just take a look at this guy’s.

6. Download & Listen Offline

Spotify has endless options, but the service won’t let you download Spotify music offline to other devices as MP3s. Replay Music lets you record music from Spotify and save tracks as MP3 files, so you can truly listen anywhere. Our software can easily record from Spotify and save the music back to your PC computer as MP3 files.

Incredible Clips: The Best Moments from Tour de France

Chris Froome sped through the 2016 Tour de France finish line in first place this weekend after a dramatic, empowering weekend. Winning the titles in 2013 and again in 2015, this year he was backed by “one special team” that made all the difference.

“It has been an incredible few weeks. The strength of the team was phenomenal, we had five climbers and we’ve all led teams but there were no egos and everything was all about Froome,” said Team Sky teammate, Geraint Thomas to UK broadcaster ITV4 after a crash on the 146 kilometer stretch on Stage 19.

With plenty of drama, endurance, team bonding and a few crashes, you can be certain there are already a ton of amazing highlight clips from the race:

6 Reasons to Save Your Online Media

(Image via AFP.com)

Online streaming is entirely awesome. Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu allow you to binge-watch your favorite series whenever you want, and on any device you connect with. However, these solutions are far from being perfect. Sometimes your favorite show can be inaccessible or disappear without a trace — that’s why many consumers who fall in love with fast-paced shows such as House of Cards or Orange is the New Black really want to know how to record Netflix.

Netflix is not the only streaming platform that presents this problem. Amazon Prime and Hulu take down their shows and movies after a set period of time, too. If you don’t know how to record Hulu, Amazon Prime, or your other favorite streaming services, you might not be able to see your favorite show or movie if (and when) it’s taken down.

This alone should be good enough reason to save and watch your favorite shows offline, but here’s our complete top six list of reasons to save your online media.

1. Captured content is more consumer-friendly

(GIF via reactiongifs.com)

Watching shows on Netflix is great if you’re at home. But, what if you’re on-the-go? 1080p videos will burn through your monthly data plan so fast, it’’ll make your head spin. If you record a movie from Netflix on your phone or tablet while you’re safely connected to your home WiFi, you can watch that content anywhere without worrying about high data charges.

Let’s not forget then that in-flight WiFi often doesn’t allow you to access streaming platforms, for reasons connected to bandwidth. Frequent flying (and other Internet-lacking means of travel) is always less stressful if you can access your favorite show or movie offline!

2. Amazon Prime is making a move toward exclusive material

(GIF via ifc.tumblr.com)

Competition is stiff, and if you want to attract enough users you need to be able to offer exclusive content. Netflix is funding a satire called War Machine, starring Brad Pitt. The company strongly believes quality is more important than quantity. Their reasoning? YouTube has thousands of times more content than Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime combined, but is struggling with subscriptions for YouTube Red.

When it comes to paying for a streaming service, content is king. That means Netflix won’t be as aggressive as you’d expect when it comes to adding new shows.

3. Netflix doesn’t have as many titles as you might think

(GIF via HBO.com)

As of 2016, they only had 4,563 movies and 2,445 series. As a matter of fact, their catalog has shrunk in the past year. There was one time when they had over 13,000 shows – this latest count puts them at 6,998, or just under 7,000.

Other services will most likely follow suit, as well.

4. Content licenses come and go

(GIF via teamcoco.com)

Netflix is constantly changing up their copyright agreements; they operate on a temporary licensing model. This means their shows expire, and you have no idea when they are coming back.

If a show is not popular enough, they might take it down. If a show is too popular, they might have to take it down, too (usually to renegotiate the license).

5. Weak connections can spoil streaming

(GIF via reddit.com)

Watching a movie online means that you can follow your favorite characters without interruptions. Unlike YouTube or network TV, you can fully plunge into the story without any commercial breaks or other distractions.

A lagging Internet connection or a sudden temporary disruption might spoil the most intriguing plot twist…and the moment is ruined! Internet speed is not the same everywhere, and in a pretty standard household, it’s normal to have multiple smartphones, a TV and even tablets all connected at once.

This also holds true for commuters who have to deal with an intermittent mobile connection.

6. It’s legal (for personal use) and you can still support the creators

(GIF via imgur.com)

Your monthly or annual fee covers the licensing costs that distribution companies negotiate with each streaming platform. These, in turn, share profit with the producers; a mechanism similar to old-school TV.

From a legal standpoint, you’re on the right side of the law. In 1984, the Supreme Court ruled time-shifted to view that recording videos for your own personal, non-commercial use is not against the law. At the time of clunky VCRs, people used to record their favorite shows to watch them at a more convenient time or to be able to re-watch them. Later on, people could consider whether or not they would buy a physical copy of the movie.

The business model for producers and distribution companies has changed and revenue streams are mostly generated at theaters (for movies), and through licenses. That’s a perk of a Netflix recorder – you can save each show and watch it without limitations. In the meantime, you can still consider buying a Blu-ray or DVD (if available) to further support the creators of the show.

These are some of the reasons why being able to record Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime video streams is a vital complementary feature. Replay Video Capture allows people to record movies from Netflix (and basically any other platforms) before the company takes them down.

Use Replay Video Capture to get your favorite content before it disappears from your online streaming service, and to enjoy movies and online shows without worrying about your connection!
