The 5 Most Popular Series on BBC iPlayer to Download and Save

Among the streaming giants we normally keep up-to-date on, BBC iPlayer is one of the largest abroad. While noticing that services like Netflix and Amazon were taking a big portion of the viewers, the BBC took a digital approach when they made full series of shows available online after being shown on live TV. Now, BBC iPlayer is at its absolute best; viewers are streaming an average of 272 million shows every month.

With BBC being one of the leading providers of amazing content like shows, movies, and documentaries, there’s a comprehensive catalog of media to consume and enjoy on their platform, including many top-rated UK series. We’ve taken a deep dive into the most popular titles on BBC iPlayer – you can record every last one of them using (a DNS service like Getflix. if you’re in the United States and) the power of Replay Media Catcher!

1. The Young Offenders

The Young Offenders, while fairly new, has already rounded up a ton of acclaim from comedy viewers in the UK, USA, and beyond who enjoy a good belly laugh. Starring Alex Murphy, Chris Walley as two teenage friends (Conor and Jock) from Cork, the show follows their follies and journeys in stealing bikes, hatching up crazy plans, and going on impromptu adventures ultimately on the quest to find a missing bale of cocaine worth 7,000,000 euros. 

2. EastEnders

EastEnders is a truly classic British drama/soap opera that was created by Julia Smith and Tony Holland in the early 80’s and has been featured regularly on BBC One since 1985. Like many other soap operas, the general storyline sounds simple enough, following a family or working-class folks of Albert Square; however, it manages to discuss many social, societal, and even “taboo” issues that made the show way ahead of its time.

3. MasterChef


MasterChef is one of those cooking shows that you can kick but can never keep down. There’s nothing people love more than watching competitive cooking, baking, and perfecting of food that you can practically smell it looks so good. After a brief hiatus of the program in the early 2000’s, MasterChef has been better than ever (and making our mouths water!). Pro tip: check out all of the spin-off programs to get all of the cooking competition you can handle.

4. Shetland

If you love Scottish accents, beautiful scenery, and a whole bunch of true crime, Shetland is the perfect show for you. This crime drama series stars Douglas Henshall as Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez, a Detective Inspector on the Scottish archipelago of Shetland who has a no-B.S. attitude when it comes to cracking cases. For fans of the recent true crime drama movement, this is one show you won’t want to keep off your list.

5. Call the Midwife

Call the Midwife is a period piece that some might describe as “perfect.” Adapted by Heidi Thomas from the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this dramatic show provides a new perspective on the lives and women behind midwifery in 1950s East End London. Chiefly following a midwife named Jenny and a crew of lovable nuns, Call the Midwife is a refreshing series full of amazing women who care for people.


Important Note: BBC iPlayer lets you stream shows and movies, but only if you’re watching in the UK. The easiest way to watch BBC iPlayer in the United States and other areas abroad is to use a DNS service like Getflix.

Replay Media Catcher is the only software out there that can record high-quality video of streaming movies and other media online. BONUS TIP! Use the live stream monitor feature to easily keep track of your favorite streaming shows and entertainment on BBC iPlayer, and automatically download. Don’t miss these exclusive series and shows before they’re gone – use Replay Media Catcher to save them all.

How to Stream & Record MLB Playoffs Online

Want to watch the MLB Playoffs without cable? For cord-cutting sports fans, finding and accessing live streaming baseball games online can be a struggle.

This year’s postseason games are no different, airing on the 5 tried-and-true cable networks: Fox, Fox Sports 1 (FS1), ESPN, TBS, and Major League Baseball Network (MLBN) — all of which won’t let you tune in without an antenna, unfortunately. Luckily, we were able to scrounge up some online options for you to live stream the MLB Playoffs and record with Replay Video Capture for Windows and Replay Video Capture for Mac.

Take a look at the full MLB Playoffs schedule here and the most up-to-date bracket below:

Hulu Live TV

Hulu’s live streaming service is definitely powerful and super easy-to-access. With a feature to watch Hulu live TV through some major networks, baseball fans can also catch the 2017 MLB postseason here. With a $39.99/month price tag for the subscription, it’s a little on the pricey side, BUT if you’re a dedicated fan looking forward to all that 2017 postseason has to offer, it’s probably worth investing in.

The pros:

  • Tap into a free trial for the postseason and cancel afterward if you want to save some cash.
  • Access 50+ top channels including sports and news from MLB, FS1, Fox, and dozens more.

The cons:

  • A $39.99 monthly subscription may not be sustainable for most budgets.


MLB.TV subscribers already have streaming rights to some of the best postseason games. While the MLB’s blackout policies prevent it from actually live streaming the playoffs in some areas, archived streams are available to everyone in blacked-out areas as soon as 90 minutes after each game ends. Not currently a member? This may be one of the simplest options for watching and recording the games with Replay Video Capture.

The pros:

  • Available to watch postseason games on multiple devices.
  • Watch MLB games during the regular season and beyond.

The cons:

  • The package does not provide U.S. viewers with access to the entire postseason.
  • Tou’ll need to authenticate your MLB.TV account through your pay television provider (aka, still have a cable subscription)

These restrictions ONLY apply to U.S.-based viewers, however. Subscribers outside the United States can watch every postseason and World Series game on more than 400 devices, no authentication needed!

Never miss a pitch, slide or home run again. MLB fans can use Replay Video Capture to easily record the Playoffs online from any of the above sources! 

Replay Video Capture is the easiest way to capture any baseball game on your screen and turn it into a high quality, video movie file. Make personal copies of your favorite MLB Playoffs games and keep them forever, in whatever format you want.

9 Powerful Hacks for the Ultimate Netflix Experience

Love kicking back for a relaxing night with Netflix? Us too. No matter how much time you spend watching, though, you’ll never be a real power user if you don’t poke around under the entertainment hood. We took the time to really dive in (so you don’t have to), and rounded up a collection of tricks will greatly improve your Netflix experience.

Here are our top tips to take your Netflix binges to the next level:

1. Switch to high quality

High quality is the best quality when you’re enjoying movies online. You can manually force HD playback on Netflix on your TV to ensure your media is always shown in the highest-quality possible. First, make sure that your internet connection supports streaming 5 megabits/second or more, then log in and go to Account Settings > Playback Settings to select high quality.

(Note: Chrome users won’t be able to use this trick – sorry!)

2. Stream off peak hours

This may seem a little more on the obvious side, but choosing to stream Netflix shows NOT during peak hours will always award you with better quality. When less people are using Netflix overall, it improves downstream data traffic and thus, your viewing experience.

3. Use your phone as a remote

Lost the remote in your couch cushions again? You can turn any smartphone into a remote control just by downloading the Netflix app for iPhone, Android or Windows Phone. Once installed and synced properly, you’ll be able to play, pause, stop and browse all from your connected device. Technology rules.

4. Create multiple profiles

We all have those guilty, yet amazing, pleasures we jump to when no one else is around to judge our viewing habits. Now you don’t have to hide when you create multiple profiles on Netflix! It’s free, easy to set up, and you’ll be able to generate a different profile for your chick flicks, horror movies, or anything else you may want to keep separate from your main account.

5. Say goodbye to buffering

Buffering movies and shows on your laptop can be a serious time-waster. To get rid of buffering in Netflix while playing a title, select Shift+Opt (Shift+Alt for Windows) and left click to open up a “hidden” menu called the Stream Manage. You’ll find buffering fixes, along with some other helpful tips!

(Note: For Chrome users, press Ctrl+Shift+Alt/Opt+S to access this menu.)

6. Find the best flicks

Reddit brings out the best (and sometimes worst) parts of the Internet. Use it to your advantage and head to r/netflixbestof to check out all of the best, most painstakingly-selected shows and movies to see so you never have to browse aimlessly again.

7. Record anything for later

Technology now allows us to record streaming movies and television shows from Netflix to watch forever, even after the site has taken them down. Using Replay Video Capture, you can screen record ANYTHING on Netflix in amazingly high-quality formats.

8. Enhance your viewing

Browser extensions are better than they’ve ever been. With one add-on in Chrome called Netflix Enhancements, you can instantly access IMDB profiles, movie trailers, pop-up ratings from sources like Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, and more. You can even customize what you see once it’s installed.

9. Utilize keyboard shortcuts

Because streaming TV shows and movies should be as efficient as any other kind of digital hacking, Netflix keyboard shortcuts exist to streamline your viewing:

  • Play/Pause – Space bar OR Enter key
  • Play – Page Up key
  • Pause – Page Down key
  • Enable Full screen – F key
  • Disable Full screen – Esc key
  • Rewind 10 seconds – Shift + Left Arrow
  • Fast Forward 10 seconds – Shift + Right Arrow
  • Volume Up/Down – Up Arrow/Down Arrow
  • Mute On/Off – M key
  • Toggle by frame – CTRL + Space bar

How to Grow Your Personal Music Collection for Free

record music

With the number of music access points online, you can listen to practically anything these days. In fact, streaming music online has nearly doubled in the last year, making this form of consumption the most used and consistent in growth by far.

It’s pretty incredible to have access to these vast catalogs of music, but listening is often limited to an Internet connection and, in some cases, a paid subscription. Along with the constant battle between streaming sites, it’s impossible to tap into a complete library of music at any time without being connected. In short, the benefits to building out your own collection of music may outweigh the “convenience” of online access alone.

Record Music Anywhere Online

Enter Replay Music into the music scene – a powerful, unique audio recorder built and specifically optimized for capturing music from online streaming services or media players. Designed for both Mac and PC, you can record from sites like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music and more.

  • Save any music into high-quality MP3 files.
  • Separate individual tracks.
  • Automatically tag with metadata and add artwork.
  • Eliminate system sounds and background noises for a clean recording.

Here’s how to use Replay Music to capture music online:


Replay Music is 100% legal to use, just like a CD ripping program, tape recorder or DVR! Fear not – you can record and convert all of the music you want to expand your personal collection!
