The Top YouTubers You Need to Follow for Gaming

Move over PewDiePie, there are hundreds of awesome up-and-coming YouTubers and channels to subscribe to for your fix of gaming-related videos. With so many incredible options nowadays, if you can sift through the madness you’ll end up with a number of well-produced, informed and expertly-written content about video games.

Luckily for gamers, we went through the best of the best, and the worst of the worst, and came up with a shortlist of some of our favorite YouTube channels for video games. With Replay Media Catcher, you can capture and record as many of the videos from these gaming YouTube channels that you could ever want on hand.

1. The Syndicate Project

The Syndicate Project has reached nearly 10 million subscribers — but it wasn’t always so big. Launched in 2010, it focused first on Halo and Call of Duty, and then expanded to include Minecraft live play, video game unboxing videos, reaction videos, and even some real-life adventure videos to keep things interesting. Of all the “popular” gaming channels out there, this one’s our favorite! Watch + record The Syndicate Project on YouTube

2. Game Grumps

Game Grumps is another Let’s Play series on YouTube starring Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan. Created in mid 2012, the channel generally puts out 3 videos a day that consist of hosts playing a game, and highlights their experiences and opinions of that game. It has since expanded to many lengthy videos that incorporate new hosts in spin-offs, including Ross O’Donovan, Barry Kramer, Suzy Berhow and Brian Wecht. Watch + record GameGrumps on YouTube

3. Rev3Games

Remember Adam Sessler? He was made famous by G4TV and its review show X-Play, which ran until 2013. Now he’s putting out awesome, personality-laden videos on his YouTube channel, Rev3Games! Also starring Tara Long, Anthony Carboni and other co-hosts, this channel has a casual, yet super entertaining style of video content that features reviews, Let’s Plays, and live streaming game play. Watch + record Rev3Games on YouTube

4. The Gaming Historian

Much like its name implies, the Gaming Historian is documentary-style web series about the history of video games. While it doesn’t have any live game play, unboxing moments or reaction videos, the YouTube show is incredibly well-edited and professional-looking, and the host does an amazing job backing up every fact or piece of trivia with solid research. Watch + record The Gaming Historian on YouTube

5. SeaNanners

SeaNanners is hosted by commentator Adam Montoya, who focuses his YouTube channel primarily on Let’s Play videos of first-person shooter games (Call of Duty), third-person adventure games (Grand Theft Auto), and other strategy-related video games (Minecraft). Because he’s so entrenched in the online gaming community, you can bet there are a ton of collaboration videos with other gaming YouTubers, as well. Watch + record SeaNanners on YouTube

How to Download & Archive Your Favorite Podcasts

podcasts_

Podcasts have become a fundamental part of media entertainment over the last few decades — slowly picking up popularity since “audio-blogging” was introduced in the 1980’s. Flash forward to today where practically everyone has listened to a podcast, and monthly podcast listenership has increased 75% since 2013, where hundreds of thousands of podcasts exist around the digital world that cover every topic and idea you could possibly think of.

For those 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.

Downloading Podcasts Online

There are any number of sites and services available online that host podcasts. Here’s how to download podcasts from every one of them…

Online Radio

Whether you like iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Stitcher, Podomatic, or any other online audio-hosting site, Replay Radio can download podcasts from them all. Record a bunch of podcasts simultaneously, convert to MP3 files, transfer them to your mobile devices, and automatically schedule audio recordings to never miss a thing. With a powerful built-in media guide, you can even search for and download great podcasts without leaving the software!

iTunes & SoundCloud

Two popular music hosting platforms today, iTunes and Soundcloud, are also good resources for finding awesome podcasts (and, of course, a lot of other great media). Using Replay Music, it’s easy to capture full podcasts and other audio from iTunes and Soundcloud, and turn every recording into an easy-to-digest MP3 file. Plus, Replay Music also identifies and tags recorded audio with the correct metadata, so everything is added to your collection seamlessly.

Archive.org

Archive.org is a surprisingly popular platform for great podcasts, and is free to use for publishers. While it’s well-known for its video-recording capabilities, listeners can also use Replay Media Catcher to download any available podcast from Archive.org — the software even has a tool to automatically schedule podcasts to be downloaded! Just launch it, visit the page on Archive.org with the podcast you want, and any audio playing on your computer will be captured perfectly.

Archiving Your Podcasts

During the download process, Replay Radio, Replay Music and Replay Media Catcher are all set to automatically locate and modify the correct set of information for your podcasts. What this means is that every piece of metadata is added to your MP3 files for you, so that everything can be easily organized exactly the way you want it.

With podcast show titles, speakers, series descriptions and other key details at-the-ready, your downloaded podcasts are already prepared to be imported into iTunes, Google Play, or any other system you choose to use.

Good for a Laugh: Best Comedy YouTube Channels

applian-banners-_1_

YouTube has built the opportunity for comedians to reach people anywhere. Without the use of this popular platform, many folks would find it impossible to get a show or skit into production – YouTube lets anyone with basic filming capabilities and a jolt of creativity generate and distribute video content.

Born and bred in the age of the Internet, online entertainers today are making skits, jokes and stories more immersive and unique than ever. We rounded up some of our favorite comedy channels on YouTube, so you can capture all of the funny with Replay Media Catcher.

5 Second Films

With a content base that’s described exactly by its name, 5 Second Films is a YouTube channel with storytelling, mystery and of course, a lot of laughs. While most of the funny short films are admittedly closer to 10 seconds than 5 (to include open and closing credits), they certainly pack a punch and cover silly, off-the-cuff topics like you wouldn’t even imagine. Watch + record 5 Second Films from YouTube.

Miranda Sings

Miranda Sings is a character created by actress Colleen Ballinger – and boy, do we mean character. With a sassy personality, unreal (and not in the good way) singing capability, and less-than-bloggable makeup, this awesome YouTuber has a growing viewership of all kinds. Is she crazy or just super talented? Even her fans are still trying to figure that one out. Watch + record Miranda Sings from YouTube.

7 Minutes in Heaven

We were all teenagers once, but SNL sketch writer Mike O’Brien never quite got past it. 7 Minutes in Heaven is an awkward, hilarious, and yet somehow endearing, comedy channel on YouTube that hosts celebrities for super up-close-and-personal interviews. As you can probably guess, it’s just about as funny as it is cringeworthy. Watch + record 7 Minutes in Heaven from YouTube.

GloZell Green

GloZell has been around for what seems like forever; she’s a classically trained performer and Internet personality, and she’s built an empire around her comedic personality on YouTube. From tackling the latest challenges to sharing truly awful beauty tips to making up new characters, this is one seriously funny woman to keep an eye on. Watch + record GloZell from YouTube.

Use Replay Media Catcher to record each and every episode from these YouTube comedy channels.

A+ Recording Solutions for Education Professionals

Recording Software for Educators

Education professionals can benefit greatly from incorporating simple, yet powerful, technological solutions into everyday use. Whether you are an educator for primary school, high school, or a higher education institution, you can use recording software solutions to communicate topics with more clarity, and even provide a greater impact on learning for overall retention.

Previously, if educators wanted to share something from the computer screen, a few quick screenshots would have to suffice. Now with advanced screen capture for educators, as well as video and audio recording technology readily available, it’s much easier to go above and beyond to make learning more efficient and effective.

Help Students at Home

Record lessons that students can access anytime, anywhere. You can offer your students a taste of the same dedicated help you give them one-on-one when they are in the comfort of their own homes.

Not every student has access to the internet outside of being at school, and this can often be a struggle. In fact, this concern increases the farther modern education steps into the digital realm. While difficult, however, this limited access isn’t a complete wall in front of greater education. If even just one of your students doesn’t have the luxury of internet access, you must provide workarounds for them.

With recording solutions like Replay Video CaptureReplay Media Catcher and Replay Converter, it’s simple to create powerful study aides, tutorial videos, FAQs, and recorded lectures from your computer (and online sources) in the form of DVDs and thumb drives, so every student is on a path toward success.

Aid Substitute Teachers

Substitute teachers might not always have the most fresh, up-to-date information on what should be taught to keep a course on track. In your absence, it’s important to keep students on track, and help substitutes, with previously recorded media and other valuable learning materials.

With Replay Media Catcher and Replay Converter in hand, you can easily capture your pre-recorded lessons from YouTube, Khan Academy, TED Talks and any other learning resource with streaming video, and burn a full DVD or fill a thumb drive complete with bits of information from any source you need. This will allow your students to stay on track better while you’re away, and aid substitutes who may not have all of the answers, so no one gets behind.

Collect Learning Materials

Courses and classes, especially where higher education and high school students are attending, can’t afford to remain in the same stale state. For learning to be effective, the practice must change with the pace of technology.

Continuously collecting learning materials from valuable online resources is a great way for educators to stay in-the-know, share information, and present it to students in an easy-to-digest format. Here are just some of the ways that our powerful recording software can benefit educators:

  • Put PowerPoints from students on a DVD, thumb drive or SD card to share with other educators.
  • Capture podcasts on items of interest or specific study subject.
  • Record documentaries, movies and video clips from online sources.
  • Save instructional videos from websites like Khan Academy, YouTube, TeacherTube, Lynda and just about anywhere else online.

Develop Professionally 

Finding the time as a busy educator to allow yourself to grow and develop professionally can often be an incredible challenge. Recording software solutions like Replay Media Catcher give the freedom to easily optimize lessons with video and audio content, gather sources for ongoing professional education, and much more.

By using your newly-collected learning materials, creating fresh new ways to present information to your students, and sharing that wealth of knowledge with others, you’ll likely begin to create a culture of professional development for yourself and any other educator you interact with.

Why Choose Applian Recording Solutions? 

While many types of free recording software and screen capture technologies exist today, they unfortunately can never offer the same kind of in-depth access and consistent, powerful features.

By using Applian software, you’ll effectively be able to tap into:

  • A fully dedicated support team that understands your needs as an educator, and is always on-call to answer any questions.
  • Greater stability and better performance.
  • Frequent software updates and improvements.

Education professionals can also have full access to a bundle of amazing media recording, converting and splitting software by downloading the Replay Capture Suite for Mac or Replay Capture Suite for PC. It’s the only software bundle out there that can perform every capturing task mentioned above, and much more.


So, what are you waiting for?
