Using Applian for Archiving Podcasts

podcasts

As a format, podcasts are the black sheep, dark horse, red-headed-stepchild of the digital media space – praised, dismissed, then praised again, only to be re-dismissed as an antiquated, skeuomorphic form later on. But so long as Google Glass, Oculus and digital contact lenses remain far from mainstream useful, podcasts will continue to be produced and consumed at a rapid clip.

Here at Applian, we help you capture a lot of video-based content and do our best to tell you about the optimal product for recording media from any platform. So, without further ado, here is our essential guide to downloading podcasts with Applian products.

Capture the 2015 French Open Live Stream With Replay Media Catcher


The French Open Tennis tournament at Paris’ Roland Garros is known for the drama that unfolds on its storied clay courts. The French Open is the second annual Grand Slam event on the pro tennis calendar, nearly single handedly responsible for modern players’ continued focus on clay court tennis play.

Defending champion and nine time French Open winner, Rafael Nadal will look to upset world number one Novak Djokovic but the fans will be cheering for yet another Nadal vs Roger Federer final. World number three Andy Murray will look to bolster his own Major Championship resume with a visit from the UK while the young Montenegran up and comer Milos Raonic has tennis savants on upset alert.


NBC Sports will provide coverage of The French Open 2015 at Roland Garros on its Live Extra platform, which you can record and keep with Replay Media Catcher. More coverage of Tennis’ most exotic Major can be found on the Roland Garros website.

Replay Video Capture for HBO Go & HBO Now (now without a TV)

Finally! Now you can stream HBO movies, shows, documentary series and the rest of HBO’s content offering without a TV or cable subscription. Just subscribe to HBO Go if you are a cable subscriber or HBO Now if you aren’t. Stream content from your browser and use Replay Video Capture to keep all the content in whatever format or file type is best for you.


Silicon Valley
We can’t tell you how much we love this show. Okay, we can. WE LOVE IT. From the mind that brought us Office Space, comes the comedy that both explains and mocks the tech boom of the San Francisco Bay Area. Everything from TechCrunch Disrupt, VC funding, self-driving cars and computer engineers — Silicon Valley is funny for those who get code-jokes and those who don’t.

 


Last Week Tonight
As John Stewart slowly departs from his exhaled mantle of satirical daily comedy show, and Stephen Colbert transitions to late night, we thankfully have John Oliver to deliver weekly bouts of wit and opinion that is more poignantly laid out than other cable attempts. Here is one Brit that we don’t mind hearing from when it comes to American politics and culture.

 


Vice
Some of the best news reporting out there today, VICE covers (magazine-style) two or three stories a week. Covering topics like socio-economic turmoil, global warming, political uprising, and cultural taboos, it is a program for those who don’t mind finding out the state of affairs in our world. It’s a great timestamp of our era and worth archiving for future generations wondering what was happening in 2015.

 


This Is Where I Leave You
This family dramedy centers around a father’s death, wherein the deceased’s 4 grown children must come home for the week and deal with their outlandish mother. Deftly acted while being both hilariously ridiculous and heart-crushingly honest, we highly recommend this as a Grown-Up Family Film. Catch it while you can.

 


Crossfire Hurricane
This 2012 documentary about the legendary band, the Rolling Stones, depicts the chronological evolution of the band through archive footage and more recent off-camera commentary by Mick Jagger, Ron Wood, Charlie Watts and Keith Richards. Follow the band through their meteoric success, personal turmoil, touring, recording and ultimately, their bond as one of the greatest rock and roll bands ever.

 


Casual Vacancy
This new miniseries, based on the novel by J. K. Rowling, follows the town’s people of a small English village as they deal with the drama of their community. A study of human nature, this three episode arch digs in deep to character flaws, complex relationships, and the intricacies of community. If you’ve ever lived in a small town, there’s a lot of emotional familiarity with this miniseries.

Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distraction – Vol 12

 
Nerd Jokes: How Smart Are You? 
We only ask because our own UX specialist, Dr. Jeff Wilson, PhD (whose IQ score reads like the top speed at a Formula 1 race) has just come up with his own handy intelligence test and it’s super easy: watch the video below and let us know how many of the jokes you understood. We know there’s quite a few smarties out there, so leave a comment or drop it on Facebook or Twitter.
 

 
A Quick PhD PS: Alas, Dr. Wilson is leaving the Applian team and moving back into science, but he has queued up some entertainment for the next few installments of our PhD series. We will miss him, but his humorous distractions will live on!

Celebrating Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees 2015

Has there ever been a more exciting time to love music? Despite the music industry’s loud, long-standing complaints, the answer is ‘No!’

Today we have more artists making more music that’s more accessible to more fans than ever before. But just because platforms like YouTube, Spotify and Pandora have made music listening more convenient than ever, and services like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have given bands new ways of supporting themselves, creating new work and funding concert tours, it doesn’t mean it’s all ‘out with the old’ in the world of sharps and flats.

The 2015 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last Sunday highlights this strange new intersection of old established grandeur and new digital access. Below, we’ve collected some of the 2015 inductees, compiled some of their greatest performances from around the web. Check out the best way to capture them for keeps in our Supported Site Directory.

Happy listening!

  • Ringo Starr

    There are so many mythic stories and timeless Beatles performances it’s hard to pick just one. But for the true connoisseur, Ringo has his own mythology. Before the Rock Hall of Fame induction performance, it had been years since bandmates Paul and Ringo had played together. Their set at the ceremony is fun and includes cameos from other 2015 inductees. The YouTube video here is shot on some lucky audience member’s phone but the audio comes through clearly. Fire up Replay Media Catcher for the video and use Replay Music to save the track for your kids’ iPod.

 

 

 

 

 

Check out the full list of this year’s Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees here, have a listen to this excellent YouTube mix featuring songs from each of the 2015 inductees, rock out to this 500-song Spotify playlist on the sounds that shaped Rock & Roll, or get into the best live Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum performances playlist.

Remember, you can capture and keep music from YouTube, Pandora, and Spotify with Replay Music.
