If you can stream it online, you can record and save it forever, no matter the device or internet connection. Here are our favorite streaming sites to record media online:

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.

Happy Feet (2006)

An animated musical with some of Hollywood’s top stars voicing adorable penguins sounds like just about the most wonderful family movie ever.

Master of None: Season 2

Music Streaming: Which Service is On Top in 2017?

Music is always changing — the way it’s created, distributed and enjoyed advancing with the connected landscape of technology. Since the first music streaming platform was introduced in the late 1990s, how we consume music has become more centralized to web-based services.

Before Spotify, iHeartRadio, and Pandora, there was Internet Underground Music Archive (IUMA), Last.fm and Napster. While the services and sites have been tweaked and updated over the years, the main goal has always been the same: to give people access to on-demand music. In 2016, the United States alone saw 431.7 billion music streams, up nearly 40% from the previous year. 51% of all U.S. music revenue in 2016 was also attributed to online music streaming, racking up $2.48 billion over the year.

Americans are consuming more music than ever before. Of course, as music streaming continues to rise in popularity, traditional album sales (even digital album sales) continue to plummet.

Why Streaming Is “Too Big to Fail”

The music industry has always had a love-hate relationship with music streaming services. On one hand, these platforms make music incredibly accessible and place artists’ music in front of more ears. On the other hand, streaming services are notorious for providing a minimal payout to the musicians themselves.

No matter your personal or professional stance on the debate, music industry and streaming service executives have realized that they need to work together to survive. Recent lengthy negotiations between Spotify and Universal Music Group led to a multi-year licensing deal to benefit everyone:

“This partnership is built on a mutual love of music, creating value for artists and delivering for fans…We know that not every album by every artist should be released the same way, and we’ve worked hard with UMG to develop a new, flexible release policy. Starting today, Universal artists can choose to release new albums on premium only for two weeks, offering subscribers an earlier chance to explore the complete creative work, while the singles are available across Spotify for all our listeners to enjoy.”

 

– Daniel Ek, Chairman and CEO of Spotify

The contract has some obvious compromises, like Universal agreeing to lower royalty rates and Spotify allowing Universal to exclude free users from listening to new releases for up to two weeks. These less-than-perfect negotiations show us just how co-dependent the relationship between labels and streaming services has become.

Music Streaming: Today’s Top Services

Last year, Spotify was the reigning leader of streaming services, experiencing the fastest subscriber growth in the entirety of its 7 years in business in the last half of 2015 alone. While the site was worth more than half of the global recorded music industry at the time, industry leaders can quickly change.

Pandora

It’s easy to see how quickly the streaming industry changes from year to year, and even from month to month. Just last year, Spotify was arguably the most popular, fastest growing streaming service in use. In comparison to this knowledge, the chart below shows the percentage of Americans aged 12+ who listened to the following music streaming services in the past month (February 2017).

As you can see, Pandora has a visible lead at 32%, with Spotify trailing behind at 18% of Americans aged 12+ listening in. Key Pandora statistics for 2017 include:

  • 4.39 million subscribers
  • 81 million monthly listeners
  • $1.55 – $1.7 billion projected revenue
  • 18 – 24 years old largest age group of users

Learn how to record music from Pandora.

Spotify

Spotify has been through some major ups and downs over the past couple of years. While the number of listeners Spotify sees each month is impressive, the company reported an operating loss of 184.5 million euros ($195.5 million) just 2 years ago. Overall, Spotify is seeing growth and change internationally; the company is expanding efforts and attempting to shift their focus to supporting artists, rather than their own profitability.

The chart above shows the number of paid subscribers that Spotify has had, from 2010 to 2017. Other key Spotify statistics for 2017 include:

  • 50 million subscribers
  • 100 million listeners
  • 20,000 songs added per day
  • 60 countries in service and counting

Learn how to record music from Spotify.

Apple Music

By far the newest to the game, Apple Music has seen relatively consistent growth since launching 2 years ago. While experts banking on Apple’s market share and notoriety in hardware/software speculated that it would surpass Spotify’s number of listeners, Spotify has so far kept Apple Music at an arm’s length away.

This chart shows the steady gap between Apple Music and Spotify subscribers from 2015 to today. As each service releases information on new milestones, we’re curious to see how things look in another 6 months. Key Apple Music statistics for 2017 include:

  • 20+ million subscribers
  • 30% growth in subscribers in the past year
  • $7 billion in revenue in 2016

Top 5 Most Amazing Web Series on YouTube Right Now

You’ve seen our roundup lists for our favorite YouTube comedy channels, news channels, and even science and technology channels before; sufficed to say, we’re big YouTube fans in general. While we’re usually busy streaming and downloading from Netflix, and other services with amazing shows, YouTube is one platform that’s been quietly dominating the online streaming scene.

Did you know shows like Broad City, Portlandia, and Billy on the Street started as a web series online? It’s the number one way for video creators, writers, comedians and other media creatives to truly shine, without the need of a contract. While you can subscribe to YouTube Red for unlimited access to all of their new, original content and web series, not everyone wants to pay to play. For everyone else on the standard YouTube site, there are still some super-creative, well-done mini-web series to get caught up on.

The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl

Issa Rae is well on her way toward production stardom for her well-crafted video projects. One that we’re particularly in love with is The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl, which was released on YouTube in 2011. With a full two seasons and short episodes averaging just a few minutes each, it’s a quick binge session to catch up with (and finish) this brilliant series that was turned into a book. Plus, Issa Rae offers more videos and series on her main channel. Watch and record The Misadventures of an Awkward Black Girl on YouTube using Replay Media Catcher.

Ladies Room

This Mumbai-based lady-duo has been quietly killing it with their hilariously real comedy, Ladies Room. Mainly based in, you guessed it, stalls from various ladies’ bathrooms, the two comediennes rant through things like pregnancy scares, narrowly missed arrests, and accidentally consuming illegal substances. The humor is dangerous, relatable, and laugh-out-loud funny, reminiscent of predecessors like Broad City. Watch and record Ladies Room on YouTube using Replay Media Catcher.

The Actress

Actresses who are looking for new work and glory on the big screen can often have a rough, dramatic life. The Actress chronicles the life of one such struggling star in particular, and delicately balances the hilariousness and despair associated with “becoming a star.” If you love the humor of shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm and Ricky Gervais’ Extras, you’ll love the squirm-inducing, almost painful-to-watch situations in this 3-season mini web series. Watch and record The Actress on YouTube using Replay Media Catcher.

H+

Who says you can’t manage real effects without a full production team? The team behind H+ has mastered the art of creating a gripping, graphics-based series without a large budget. Utterly confusing and yet completely binge-worthy, H+ is a futuristic-style drama that dives into the complexities of technological implants that take things too far. Watch and record H+ on YouTube using Replay Media Catcher.

Video Game High School

Many high school teen’s dream-come-true, Video Game High School (VGHS) is a feature-length YouTube series that follows a gamer named Brian who is recruited to attend a very special school after winning a tournament on live TV. Laden with fun humor and some surreal absurdities, this 3-season mini web series is as charming and goofy as it is creative. Watch and record Video Game High School on YouTube using Replay Media Catcher.
