Don’t Miss Out: How to Record & Save the NBA Finals

Well, folks, it’s finally official — we’re in for another round of Warriors vs. Cavs!

Following in last year’s footsteps, the 2017 NBA Finals are pitting the Bay Area famous Golden State Warriors against the Cleveland Cavaliers in what’s sure to be another intense round of championship games. After a series of seriously well-played rounds in the Playoffs, however, it’s really not much of a surprise.

Fans of the Cavs aren’t quite feeling the support as much as the Warriors this year, though, with many metrics and data sets suggesting that the Golden State Warriors will likely take it all home. Analyst and commentator Jeff Van Gundy even stated the following to the San Francisco Chronicle:

“I don’t think the Warriors will be challenged. I think they’ll be in the same situation as last year, up 3-1 coming home. In my time in the NBA, this is the biggest talent differential between the best team and the second-best team. No disrespect to Cleveland, but I just think the Warriors are at a different level.”

No matter who you’re rooting for, it’s bound to be an adventure.

How to Record & Save the French Open

The 2017 French Open kicks off Monday, May 22, at Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, marking the beginning of the second stretch of the infamous Grand Slam tournament. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are clear favorites for the win the Men’s title this year, with Stan Wawrinka (2015 champion) slowly closing in under the radar of media attention. Experts are doubtful that anyone other than Nadal will take it all home for the 10th time, however.

On the Women’s side, Simona Halep came in strong and won the title in Madrid. With many mainstream tennis stars out-of-the-running (Maria Sharapova was denied the wildcard; Serena Williams is out during pregnancy; Roger Federer decided not to play in lieu of Wimbledon), there are bound to be some fresh faces vying to really make their mark. We’re in for some intense head-to-heads and matchups between highly-skilled players this year.

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

6 Reasons to Save Your Online Media

(Image via AFP.com)

Online streaming is entirely awesome. Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu allow you to binge-watch your favorite series whenever you want, on any kind of device that you connect with. However, these solutions are far from being perfect. Sometimes your favorite show can be inaccessible or disappear without a trace — that’s why many consumers who fall in love with fast-paced shows such as House of Cards or Orange is the New Black really want to know how to record Netflix.

Netflix is not the only streaming platform that presents this problem. Amazon Prime and Hulu take down their shows and movies after a set period of time, too. If you don’t know how to record Hulu, Amazon Prime, or your other favorite streaming services, you might not be able to see your favorite show or movie if (and when) it’s taken down.

This alone should be good enough reason to save and watch your favorite shows offline, but here’s our complete top six list of reasons to save your online media.

1. Captured content is more consumer-friendly

Watching shows on Netflix is great if you’re at home. But, what if you’re on-the-go? 1080p videos will burn through your monthly data plan so fast, it’ll make your head spin. If you record a movie from Netflix on your phone or tablet while you’re safely connected to your home WiFi, you can watch that content anywhere without worrying about high data charges.

Let’s not forget then that in-flight WiFi often doesn’t allow you to access streaming platforms, for reasons connected to bandwidth. Frequent flying (and other Internet-lacking means of travel) is always less stressful if you can access your favorite show or movie offline!

2. Amazon Prime is making a move toward exclusive material

(GIF via ifc.tumblr.com)

Competition is stiff, and if you want to attract enough users you need to be able to offer exclusive content. Netflix is funding a satire called War Machine, starring Brad Pitt. The company strongly believes quality is more important than quantity. Their reasoning? YouTube has thousands of times more content than Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime combined but is struggling with subscriptions for YouTube Red.

When it comes to paying for a streaming service, content is king. That means Netflix won’t be as aggressive as you’d expect when it comes to adding new shows.

3. Netflix doesn’t have as many titles as you might think

(GIF via HBO.com)

As of 2016, they only had 4,563 movies and 2,445 series. As a matter of fact, their catalog has shrunk in the past year. There was one time when they had over 13,000 shows – this latest count puts them at 6,998, or just under 7,000.

Other services will most likely follow suit, as well.

4. Content licenses come and go

(GIF via teamcoco.com)

Netflix is constantly changing up their copyright agreements; they operate on a temporary licensing model. This means their shows expire, and you have no idea when they are coming back.

If a show is not popular enough, they might take it down. If a show is too popular, they might have to take it down, too (usually to renegotiate the license).

5. Weak connections can spoil streaming

(GIF via reddit.com)

Watching a movie online means that you can follow your favorite characters without interruptions. Unlike YouTube or network TV, you can fully plunge into the story without any commercial breaks or other distractions.

A lagging Internet connection or a sudden temporary disruption might spoil the most intriguing plot twist…and the moment is ruined! Internet speed is not the same everywhere, and in a pretty standard household, it’s normal to have multiple smartphones, a TV and even tablets all connected at once.

This also holds true for commuters who have to deal with an intermittent mobile connection.

6. It’s legal (for personal use) and you can still support the creators

(GIF via imgur.com)

Your monthly or annual fee covers the licensing costs that distribution companies negotiate with each streaming platform. These, in turn, share profit with the producers; a mechanism similar to old-school TV.

From a legal standpoint, you’re on the right side of the law. In 1984, the Supreme Court ruled time-shifted to view that recording videos for your own personal, non-commercial use is not against the law. At the time of clunky VCRs, people used to record their favorite shows to watch them at a more convenient time or to be able to re-watch them. Later on, people could consider whether or not they would buy a physical copy of the movie.

The business model for producers and distribution companies has changed and revenue streams are mostly generated at theaters (for movies) and through licenses. That’s a perk of a Netflix recorder – you can save each show and watch it without limitations. In the meantime, you can still consider buying a Blu-ray or DVD (if available) to further support the creators of the show.

These are some of the reasons why being able to record Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime video streams is a vital complementary feature. Replay Video Capture allows people to record movies from Netflix (and basically any other platforms) before the company takes them down.

Use Replay Video Capture to get your favorite content before it disappears from your online streaming service, and to enjoy movies and online shows without worrying about your connection!
