Using Replay Capture Suite Software to Streamline Your Business


Eighteen years ago, when we started building software to keep the media we watch and listen to online, it was the classic case of developing a solution for a problem we experienced first-hand.

A lot has changed on the web since then – the rise of Flash, HTML, and powerful server technologies, has given us more media, more accessibly than ever. The need for tools to save and access this content on our own terms has grown steadily ever since.

We have a lot of fun with the Replay Capture Suite and other Applian products. As we have grown as a business, though, we’ve found that our need to store platform-specific content has grown as well. The solutions for keeping and organizing that content was found right under our noses, within the very products we’d been developing.

Here are some of the best tips we’ve learned for streamlining your business with the amazing software included in the Replay Capture Suite:

Indexing Meetings
With the rise of telecommuting at companies large and small, the need to document the productivity and remote meetings has, too.

Agendas, meeting minutes, and action items are old tricks – a newer technique is using Replay Video Capture to record the audio and/or video from Skype, or any other VoIP platform your company relies on. Knowing what you’ve done and how you’ve spent your time as a company is critical to making better decisions down the line.

Streamlining Training
Whether you’re a global company or a startup, training is draining on time and other resources. Face-to-face training will always be a requisite for many tasks and positions, but being smart about what you can record and reuse can lighten the load substantially.

Do you have an employee with solid presentation skills, or who is particularly strong at communicating company values? Use Replay Video Capture to record their entire spiel and send it over to new hires to study up on, along with other on-boarding materials to make the transition run smoothly.

Staying Sharp
No matter your industry, there’s a slew of online educators, thought leaders and visionaries building their own personal brands around industry-specific content; some of these figures are for real, others are pretenders.

Luckily, Replay Media Catcher’s embedded media guides make finding the best industry and educational content specifically for your business easier than ever, and our recording scheduler helps make sure you don’t miss any of the good stuff once you find it. Sharing is caring. Knowledge is power.

Building Company Culture
Cultures are made when people’s interests intersect, and there’s a large body of evidence to suggest that companies need culture as much as individuals and societies do. But, the divergence of interest topics in the web-connected world can make it tricky to find those water cooler chat items.

Using Replay Media Catcher to record enjoyment media (as opposed to professional), and using shared company storage to disseminate that content, is a great way to start non-work related dialogue.

Using Applian for Archiving 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.


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.


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.
