It doesn’t matter if you are a Halloween fanatic, or if you just want to have a great list of movies to freak you out until the big day, we’ve got you covered. You can stream all the best scary movies using Replay Video Capture for Windows or Replay Video Capture for Mac just in time for Halloween! Not sure how to do it? Check out our handy guide here!

The Haunting of Hill House

A spin-off show based on the original 1959 movie mentioned below, this incredible new series has viewers (and the actors involved) completely terrified. The Haunting of Hill House focuses on the story of the Crain family between their past living in the Haunted Hill house, and their present-day recovery from those events. With a 92% Rotten Tomatoes score, props from Stephen King himself, and way too much proof that you might actually vomit from being so scared, we’re sure it’s a new Halloween classic for seasoned horror pros. You can watch and record The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix using Replay Video Capture

Interview with a Vampire (1994)

Can a vampire be misunderstood? It’s complicated. If brooding vampires are your thing, you should definitely check out this Oscar-nominated modern classic about a vampire named Louis who gets lured into the vampire life after personal tragedy hits his family. This follows his saga and complicated relationship with the vampire Lestat as they navigate good and evil in the afterlife. You can watch and record Interview with a Vampire on Netflix using Replay Video Capture.

Paranormal Activity (2009)

This supernatural horror flick follows a young couple as they move into a new house in San Diego, which is seemingly possessed by a demonic spirit that follows them around. In this found-footage-style film, increasingly terrifying events are caught on camera as the demonic spirit feeds off of their negative energy. Have fun trying to sleep after this one! You can watch and record Paranormal Activity on Hulu using Replay Video Capture.

Children of the Corn (1984)

Children can be such a joy. Or they can be terrifying. If they are in the town of Gatlin, Nebraska, chances are they will have you fearing for your life. This terrifying classic from Stephen King is enough to make you petrified of perfect cornfields and perfectly innocent looking children forever. You can watch and record Children of the Corn on Netflix using Replay Video Capture.

House on Haunted Hill (1959)

What happens when you challenge a group of strangers to stay overnight in a haunted house for the chance to win $10,000? A night of absolute terror. Check out this classic that is filled with paranoia, terror, and yes, murder. You can watch and record House on Haunted Hill on Amazon Prime using Replay Video Capture.

Nosferatu (1931)

Before vampires were sexy, brooding, or sparkly, there was Nosferatu. This classic uses shadows and suspense to create an atmosphere of sheer terror that can’t be missed. Often billed as one of the scariest movies of all time, this silent movie is a precursor to Bram Stoker’s “Dracula”, but stands in a class of its own. You can watch and record Nosferatu on Amazon Prime using Replay Video Capture.

The Others (2001)

In this bleak horror classic, a family becomes obsessed by the otherworldly presence that seems to be taking over their house. With plenty of twists and dread, this may be the perfect horror movie to watch and re-watch. You can watch and record The Others on Hulu using Replay Video Capture.

The Ultimate Summer Road Trip Checklist

Looking for something to give life to your summer vacation? Getting a group of friends together, packing up your bags, picking a destination, and hitting the road is one of the best ways to enjoy the season. Nothing is more bonding than spending hours with your best pals, significant other, or close family members, and nothing feels more rewarding than when your feet touch the ground when you finally get there. If your upcoming summer plans include a road trip, we’ve got the perfect list of must-pack items, car preparation tips, and ideas for recording your favorite entertainment to help you plan the best trip ever.

Pack Only the Essentials

Whether you’re just headed into the city or have a full cross-country drive, if your main living space is your vehicle, every bit of space counts. No matter how long your road trip may be, packing into a single carry-on or medium-sized suitcase, as much as you possible will help you save a lot of valuable space. With more space, you’ll have more room for the most essential things, like snacks, drinks, games, and most importantly, legroom.

Prep a Basic Emergency Kit

Nothing ruins a trip quite like being stranded in the middle of nowhere with no basic resources. If AAA has you on hold or you have no cell signal,, having an emergency kit prepared and easily accessible could be a lifesaver. While there are pre-made emergency backpacks that exist for purchase, none will have every necessity, so we recommend DIY’ing it.

These are some basic items to be sure you include, like:

  • Emergency food & water
  • Thermal blankets
  • Flashlight with extra batteries
  • First aid kit
  • Emergency cash
  • Roadmap
  • Car charger for your cell phone
  • Jumper cables

Plan Healthy Foods and Snacks

There’s nothing worse than feeling sick or sluggish when you’re on a road trip. That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan ahead and bring healthier snacks and foods to munch on along the way. Rather than relying on fast food, jerky, chips, and other gas station snacks, having some of these essentials will keep your energy up in the best way:

Cut vegetables like celery, bell pepper, carrots, cucumber, and broccoli are all packed with nutrients and stay fresh for a long trip.

Fresh berries and fruits like grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, peaches, nectarines, and plums are delicious, vitamin-packed snacks.

Dry items like trail mix, pita chips, dried fruit, protein bars, granola, and pretzels are all great snacks to have on you at all times.

Storable meats and cheeses are a great way to throw together a quick sandwich on the road, or just take a quick piece for some fast protein.

Pro tip: line your cooler with insulation to keep food fresher longer, and only keep it open as long as you absolutely need to when getting something out – how you pack up your cooler each day makes a difference!

Take a Look Under the Hood

You should treat your car like your own body on a road trip. It needs occasional pampering, a little TLC, and regular check-ups for maximum performance, especially before you put it to work. When the check engine light suddenly pops on or you start feeling a rattling under the hood, it can make any pleasant road trip stressful.

To avoid this, we recommend you take your car into your local mechanic for a regular checkup a few days before taking off, along with prepping a few other things. Here are a few things you should take care of:

  • An oil change, basic tire check, and rotation if needed.
  • Making sure you have wiper fluid all filled up to the brim, and that your wipers are still functional.
  • Putting a recent copy of your insurance information and registration straight into your glovebox for easy access.
  • Cleaning the car inside and out, and making a plan for garbage disposal so things don’t get too messy.

Download the Best Entertainment

When you’re on your trip and have played all the road trip games you can think of, what could be better than turning to your favorite music, show, movie or podcast? Unfortunately for media lovers out there, WiFi isn’t exactly readily available out on the open road and data runs out quickly.  With media-recording software in the Replay Capture Suite, you can download, record, and save all types of online media to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

Record Music: In order to achieve road trip success you must have one essential thing: a playlist. With Replay Music you can easily record any music or entire playlists from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Apple Music, and any other online music site or service that you listen to music on – if you can stream it online, you can capture it forever! With this tool, you’ll never run out of music again. Here’s a playlist that’s full of songs to get your car singing:

Download Podcasts: Replay Radio allows you to download any podcast to listen to any time. Whether you are new to the scene, or those who are seasoned listeners, it’s (luckily) simple enough to download and archive podcasts to listen to anywhere, on any device. And there are a variety of different topics to choose from. Check out some options here

Save Movies and Shows: Replay Video Capture allows you to take any online or streaming video and save it to your own collection! After recording, you can save as just about any file format and access anytime, anywhere. You could record the World Cup match for your favorite team, an oldie but goodie movie, or even the entire season of a binge-worthy show. (Hint: follow the link for suggestions)

Grab YouTube Videos: Want to watch your favorite YouTuber’s videos, a YouTube original series, and exclusive music videos on-the-go, but don’t to use up all your data? No worries. Replay Media Catcher downloads streaming video and audio files from millions of sites, including YouTube. It allows you to save the downloads to your computer and access them at any time, WITHOUT having to use your data.

Have your destination picked out yet? If not, grab a map, some tape, and a dart, close your eyes and throw. Now you’re almost ready. Next step, follow this preparation list and you’ll be on your way. Don’t forget to download your entertainment with all the great tools in the Replay Capture Suite, or you could wind up playing iSpy for the next 10 hours.

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

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.
