How to Record Videos from Hulu & Watch Shows Offline Anywhere

Hulu is an incredible streaming platform if you love watching TV shows, movies, and other video clips online. With all kinds of online video entertainment and free access to a lot of content, it’s one of the best ways to stay up-to-date on your favorites.  Streamers and cable-cutters agree — Hulu is an awesome service, but unfortunately it doesn’t allow you to watch Hulu offline or without WiFi. And, when the platform removes your favorite shows and movies, how will you ever watch them again?

Replay Video Capture is a powerful streaming video downloader that lets you easily record Hulu videos. After recording movies and TV shows from Hulu, you’ll always have your perfect media collection, and will never have to worry about being offline or without WiFi again!

How to Record from Hulu:

2. Log in to your Hulu account and open the Hulu video you want to capture, and start playing the show or movie.

3. Head back to Replay Video Capture and select “Get Video” to automatically find the video on your screen. You can also resize or move the window to narrow down your recording area, click “Retry” to redo the detection, or mark the recording area manually by using the Mark Video Window button.

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!

How to Grow Your Personal Music Collection for Free

record music

With the number of music access points online, you can listen to practically anything these days. In fact, streaming music online has nearly doubled in the last year, making this form of consumption the most used and consistent in growth by far.

It’s pretty incredible to have access to these vast catalogs of music, but listening is often limited to an Internet connection and, in some cases, a paid subscription. Along with the constant battle between streaming sites, it’s impossible to tap into a complete library of music at any time without being connected. In short, the benefits to building out your own collection of music may outweigh the “convenience” of online access alone.

Record Music Anywhere Online

Enter Replay Music into the music scene – a powerful, unique audio recorder built and specifically optimized for capturing music from online streaming services or media players. Designed for both Mac and PC, you can record from sites like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music and more.

  • Save any music into high-quality MP3 files.
  • Separate individual tracks.
  • Automatically tag with metadata and add artwork.
  • Eliminate system sounds and background noises for a clean recording.

Here’s how to use Replay Music to capture music online:

 

Replay Music is 100% legal to use, just like a CD ripping program, tape recorder or DVR! Fear not – you can record and convert all of the music you want to expand your personal collection!

(GIF via thefilmagazine.com)

When you think of super-romantic 90’s movies, Titanic comes to mind first just about every time. It’s the quintessential Valentine’s Day movie that blasted DiCaprio and Winslet into stardom, as well as a beautifully-directed visual experience. If you’re gonna snuggle up to one film this year, make this one it. Stream Titanic online and record from Amazon Prime with Replay Video Capture

2. How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days (2003) // Netflix

(GIF via itxelac.tumblr.com)

Well before Interstellar and True Detective, Matthew McConaughey was an early 2000’s heartthrob in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The movie follows McConaughey’s character (a high profile ad guy) who places a bet that he can make any woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Plot twist! Kate Hudson’s character has a different agenda. Stream How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days online and record from Netflix with Replay Video Capture

3. Love Actually (2003) // Netflix

(GIF via maudit.tumblr.com)

There’s something about a British romantic comedy that’s just overwhelmingly wonderful. Love Actually is one of the most-watched flicks from year-to-year, and understandably so. With endless A-list actors and other familiar faces, and a weaving plot of friendships and love stories, it’s a film of unrequited feelings and classic charms. Stream Love Actually online and record from Netflix with Replay Video Capture

4. Annie Hall (1977) // Hulu

(GIF via totalfilm.tumblr.com)

You’ll either love it or hate it, but Annie Hall is a classic that’ll never be anything less. Arguably Woody Allen’s best film of all time (and one that he also stars in), it’s a perfectly-written rom-com that covers every angle of new and neurotic love. With Diane Keaton gleaming as Allen’s love interest, it’s a stunning representation of life and love in the 1970’s. Stream Annie Hall online and record from Hulu with Replay Video Capture

5. Amélie (2001) // Hulu

(GIF via  antrinh53.tumblr.com)

Love foreign films? Quirky plot points? Beautiful cinematography? Amélie is one of those incredibly whimsical, romantic journeys that can break down language barriers (and probably the ones in your heart, too). A girl who takes pleasure in the little things in life, Amelie’s goal in life is to help others, including a lonely shop owner. Stream Amélie online and record from Hulu with Replay Video Capture

6. Runaway Bride (1999) // Amazon Prime

(GIF via splendiferoushoney.tumblr.com)

She can’t commit, but she’s so darn endearing! In quite possibly one of Julia Roberts’ most well-known, highly-acclaimed roles, Runaway Bride is a late 90’s romance we’ll love forever. With Richard Gere playing the older, handsome man attempting to get this pathological wedding-ditcher to finally settle down for good, it’s got the spirit and heart to make us “aww” all over the place. Stream Runaway Bride online and record from Amazon Prime with Replay Video Capture

7. Pretty in Pink (1986) // Amazon Prime

(GIF via youtube.com)

It doesn’t matter if you grew up in the 1980’s or not — Pretty in Pink is a timeless coming-of-age film that more than likely inspired your teenage love life. Another iconic John Hughes film, it features a young, unpopular and terribly lovesick Molly Ringwald whose infatuation with the trendy, rich boy in school is basically all-consuming. Stream Pretty in Pink online and record from Amazon Prime with Replay Video Capture

8. Lars and the Real Girl (2007) // Amazon Prime

(GIF via google.com)

We still can’t quite tell if it’s more bizarre or creative, but Lars and the Real Girl is most certainly unique. Ryan Gosling (as Lars) and his girl (an anatomically correct doll) have an unconventional kind of love that most people just don’t understand. If you’re open-minded and your loved one is too, it’s a super-weird, can’t-miss kind of love story. Stream Lars and the Real Girl online and record from Amazon Prime with Replay Video Capture
