Stick to Your New Year’s Resolution With These Workout Routines

Fitness trends come and go, but the health-improving benefits of getting up and getting moving will always remain! At the start of every new year, millions of people wake up full of a brand new energy and motivation to kickstart a fresh lifestyle – however, just about 8% of those people actually “achieve” their New Year’s resolutions.

Want to be one of the few who can take on the challenge and persevere through the year? We put together a few tips, tricks and workout videos that you can download from YouTube to help keep you on track with your 2017 goals!

1. Let the Good Music Flow

Step one of any good workout sequence is putting together the perfect music to fit the mood. Going for something angsty and tension-ridden to ramp things up? A pop-heavy playlist of uplifting tracks? Maybe a collection of seasonal classics? No matter your personal genre preferences, you can record music from Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Soundcloud, and more popular streaming sites and services, to create your own master list of workout hits.

Replay Music for PC is optimized to capture music and cut out other background noises, so your recorded tracks are saved as high quality MP3 files. Plus, the program perfectly separates songs into individual tracks, tags each song with artist, album, song, genre, album art and even song lyrics.

2. Tap Into Live Workout Routines

Interested in fulfilling that workout resolution from the comfort of your own home? Live streaming and recording the latest fitness classes and workout trends is the best way to get the most out of your couch-side process! With a ton of live streaming and all-access passes to kickboxing, cycling, yoga, pilates, barre, dance and more. There are endless opportunities to burn calories in new, fun ways.

Replay Video Capture makes it easy to record and save all the best exercises online to make sure you’re never bored. No matter the source, you’ll have no problem when trying to capture any live stream workouts to watch again and again.

3. Customize Exercise Video Mashups

YouTube is a gold mine for fitness and health-related videos; you just have to wade through some of the duds to find the most exceptional workouts! Once you find what you’re looking for, use Replay Media Catcher to record from Youtube and create your own custom workout videos to keep your routine nice and fresh.

Essential YouTube Hacks for Every Video Watcher

youtube to mp3

If you’re anything like us, you can hardly go a day without opening up YouTube to watch a video online. Plus, with the cold winter season settled in and making us want to stay warm and cozy, it’s inevitable that YouTube is in for a boost in viewership. While the popular video streaming site makes it possible to watch videos on any topic, served up by folks from all walks of life, there are still more cool things to be discovered.

Ready for the most entertaining YouTube experience of your life? Check out our top tips, tricks and hacks to help kick your viewing up a notch.

1. Create an auto-lineup of your favorites

Have a few favorite YouTubers that you binge-watch again and again? You can create a meta playlist that holds ALL of the video uploads from a single uploader (in order of upload date, chronologically). To do this, just add “&list=UL” to any video URL on YouTube.

2. Conquer country-specific videos

Sometimes, YouTube videos can have restrictions based on geographic regions. That’s why you’ll get that “The uploader has not made this video available in your country” pop-up message when you stumble on a cool video from far away. Luckily, this trick lets you watch any video from any country.

Here’s how regular YouTube links appears: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxx

Copy the string of characters defined by our “xxxx” example above, and paste it so that the URL is: http://www.youtube.com/v/xxxx

3. Watch in HD mode all the time

High definition is ALWAYS better, but sometimes your Internet connection can get in the way. Unlock HD mode by adding a couple of secret codes to the end of your video URL. Get stereo sound and 480×270 resolution with “&fmt=18”, or “&fmt=22” for 1280×720 resolution.

4. Jump through age restrictions

We’re all for keeping PG-13 videos for more mature eyes only, but sometimes the age restrictions on YouTube videos can be bothersome for legal adults. Instead of signing in or clicking through to verify your age, just add “nsfw.” to the beginning of your entire video’s URL, so that it appears like this: nsfw.youtube.com

5. Hunt for all the hidden Easter eggs

Cleverly hidden in YouTube’s source code are secrets just waiting to be discovered and unlocked. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Search “Beam me up Scotty” and your results will show up like they were transported through space.
  • Repeat any video (forever!) by right-clicking on the video and selecting “Loop.”
  • Like old games? Type the numbers “1980” while your video is playing and the Missile Control game will appear.
  • An homage to the Wadsworth Constant, a meme that stated the first 30% of any video isn’t worth your time, you can enter “&wadsworth=1” at the end of a YouTube video URL and it’ll auto-skip the first 30% for you.

6. Access unique 360-degree videos

YouTube launched their support for 360-degree videos earlier in 2016, letting users have a complete view of key videos and live events. With Chrome installed on your computer, you can rotate around and see every angle just by using your mouse. On mobile through the YouTube app, a simple screen swivel can lead you into new 360-degree journeys.

7. Download videos & turn audio files into MP3s

Take your favorite videos with you, in any file type you need! With Replay Media Catcher, you can download YouTube videos with just one quick drag-and-drop movement and automatically convert YouTube to MP3, WMV, AVI and more popular file formats.

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.

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.

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
