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.

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

Making Room for Romance: 8 Best Valentine’s Movies to Watch Online

Ahhhh, love is in the air and we’re gearing up for an awesome Valentine’s movie marathon with our favorite people.

No matter your plans this Valentine’s Day, we’ve scoured the collections from Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime to find the best romantic movies available to stream online. Watch them with a loved one after a nice meal, or by yourself whenever you want! As always, you can record streaming movies to watch offline whenever, wherever using the power of Replay Video Capture.

Here are the best romantic movies you can stream online now:

1. Titanic (1997) // Amazon Prime

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

8. Majedalesa – “Hwages”

Three Saudi women kicking butt, taking names and going completely viral everywhere.

We’re pretty sure the fact that the artist never made it to the video shoot makes this one even better.
