3 Steps to Save (Almost) Any Movie on Your Smartphone

Watch Movies Anywhere

Raise your hand if you’ve been stuck in transit – on your daily commute, long flight, or back seat of the car – and feeling completely bored.

For folks who enjoy a little video entertainment, it can be super tempting to start watching something on your favorite app or service. In fact, a recent study from eMarketer determined that “the average time consumers spend on their mobile devices has increased by nearly a minute per day over the past four years, while the amount of time they spend watching traditional television sets has dropped by more than 30 seconds in the same time period.”

Streaming movies on-the-go isn’t exactly the ideal situation for your (likely) strapped data plan, though. And, while many sites and services now offer the ability to download some very select content to watch offline on your smartphone, the limitations behind WHAT you can actively download and WHERE you can save the file beyond your phone can make things difficult.

Lucky for movie lovers, there’s an easy way to record high-quality movie files from online sources in ANY format needed, so you can save on any mobile device – from your smartphones to your tablets. Replay Video Capture is the only tool out there that can do just that. With powerful software that can track, capture, and save your favorite videos as they play online, you can save movies to your smartphone (or any other mobile device) from places like:

  • Netflix
  • Hulu
  • Amazon Video
  • NBC
  • Comedy Central
  • ABC
  • and many, many more

This means that you can later watch it anywhere and anytime, as often as you wish. No continuous Internet connection is required to watch the movie, once its file has been downloaded and saved!


How to Record & Save Movies in 3 Steps

With Replay Video Capture, it takes just a few quick to-dos to go from incredibly bored to constantly entertained – no matter which mobile device you’re using. Here’s the step-by-step for how to record movies online to save them to your smartphone, tablet, or other mobile devices.

Download Replay Video Capture, open the software and start playing the movie on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, NBC, Comedy Central, and just about any other streaming media site that you want to save from.

Good to note: The digital file associated with a movie requires storage space on the device you’re using. The file size will depend on the resolution of the movie, as well as its length. Plan to allocate between 2GB and 3GB of storage space for each Standard HD resolution movie, and upwards of between 4GB and 6GB for a 1080p or 4K resolution version of a movie. 

Replay Video Capture is also a master for recording…

  • Video games and live streams

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

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

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

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

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

Comcast & Dreamworks: What This Means for Media Consumers

There’s been a ton of bustle in the media industry surrounding the recent acquisition of Dreamworks by network giant, Comcast (read more here). While this may not sound scary on the surface, it will most certainly affect you, the viewer, directly.

Let’s be straight here – Comcast purchased DreamWorks to expand their content through what’s called vertical integration. A Medium article we came across describes it perfectly as “the equivalent of the mall owning the stores and also the products sold within the stores.”

The problem with big media companies getting even bigger is that they begin too push out smaller, independent media. Just last year for example, Sesame Street was purchased by HBO in the never-ending battle to bring in and satisfy more cord-cutting subscribers to their service.

“In 2009, Comcast (a cable company) bought NBCUniversal (a cable network). Within that network, you can watch numerous TV shows… And that’s just on NBC. The full range of TV shows is much larger when you factor in all of the other TV networks that are under the NBCUniversal umbrella…

By merging the cable company with cable networks, that integrates two of the three vertical segments in the cable TV marketplace. In our earlier analogy, this would include the mall and the stores within the mall.

That’s news from 2009 though. The last remaining vertical segment is the TV shows. This is where DreamWorks comes in.”

With these 3 powerhouse vertical segments in works together, Comcast is stamping their name to the front of the streaming competition. This move could prevent other services like Netflix and Hulu from accessing more TV shows and movies for their catalogs, as Comcast continues to try to attract customers away from the competition and appear more valuable overall.

While Comcast can trace their own company’s successes to the fact that they offer multiple unique services under the same umbrella, in the end the consumer still has to pay for Internet to access any of it – a service that Comcast still owns… where’s the fairness in that?

What do you think about this acquisition, and the future of online media as a whole? We’re curious to hear from you in the comments below.

The Best Worst Movies to Stream & Record Now

Some movies are amazingly brilliant, and some are so amazingly bad that it’s a wonder how they were ever conceptualized. Today, we’d like to honor some of those horrible, yet somehow captivating, films available online.

You can stream all of the terrible/awesome movies your heart can handle straight from your browser, then use Replay Video Capture to keep them forever. To get started, just fire up the software, start playing your top picks on Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime, and start recording.

Take a look at some of our favorite worst movies to stream and save on Netflix right now:

1. Gigli

If you’ve ever wanted to see J. Lo pretend to be a “fatally gorgeous” gangster, please record and save this movie from Netflix. Ben Affleck (Gigli) also stars in this quintessentially awful/amazing movie from the early 2000’s, in which a kidnapping goes terribly awry. Sloppy, bizarre and yet somehow amazing.

2. Killer Mermaid

Somewhat creepy and terribly written, this flick is perfect for you horror lovers – if you want to laugh rather than being scared. The general plot line involves two American women on a vacation in the Mediterranean, where they stumble upon the lair of (you guessed it) a killer mermaid. This film is available to stream on Netflix, and definitely worth it for your next movie night.

3. Left Behind

Nicolas Cage is reason enough to watch and save this Armageddon based masterpiece from Netflix. In Left Behind, a handful of survivors are “left behind” after millions vanish; the world is plunged into chaos. And then there was Nic Cage.

4. John Dies at the End

Comedy meets terror in this dark flick on Netflix. A new drug, referred to as Soy Sauce, promises an out-of-body experience like no other. People are scrambling for it, but there are (obviously) consequences. We won’t give you any other spoilers — this movie is perfect for livening up a boring evening.

5. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny

This movie is actually pretty good if you’re into martial arts flicks, though still laughable compared to the original. Jason Scott Lee stars as a warlord hell-bent on stealing a sword from the good guys (and martial arts masters). Get a hold of this one on Netflix before your next kung fu binge!
