1415219903_full

As you know if you’ve popped in to Dr. Wilson’s Possibly humorous Distractions before, Dr Jeff Wilson, PhD, was our in-house UX ninja who went through thousands of monthly videos and other web content to bring you some of the best (or at least, some of the most distracting).

But sometimes the best of the best isn’t best enough. Put another way, sometimes the best of the best need a best themselves. Dang, I’m confused. Maybe we’ll just get on with showing you this clip Dr. Wilson selected with all the elements of a perfect distraction: (kids + kittens + pranks = #winning web content)

Get Ready: The Emmys Are Coming!

67Emmys_Nominations_1180x520-webcast

The internet these days offers more great audio and video – podcasts, music, movies and TV – than ever before. So even though recording web content with Applian products is easier than ever, deciding what to record can be a bigger challenge.

That’s why we’ve got butterflies in our stomachs, because they’re almost here: the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards are right around the corner. Premiering live on Sunday, September 20th, you can catch a glimpse of the best of television. And there truly is some really great television these days.

No longer confined to your cable box, some of TV’s brightest stars and nominees are streaming for consumption on Netflix. So get ready to binge-watch and keep the magic, as always, with Replay Video Capture!


house-of-cards-gallery-650-80

House of Cards

Nominated for best drama, lead actor and actress, this gripping political contender is worth diving into. Overlooked last year by the final season of Breaking Bad, it’s got a pretty good chance at the win. Nonetheless, Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright are deserving in their own right.

unbreakable-kimmy-schmidt-netflix-gallery-650-80

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

The hilarious first season of the Tina Fey-helmed comedy is up for an Emmy this year. It’s worth watching for the feel-good laugh-out-louds. Be ready to quote and GIF the series for weeks to come.

orange-new-black-gallery-650-80

Orange Is The New Black

After last years’ change up of taking the series off the comedy category and into the drama contenders, Orange is the New Black isn’t likely to take home an award for Best Drama. However, it has a powerhouse cast with exceptional guest characters worth the nods.

Grace and Frankie-650-80

Grace And Frankie

Refreshing to see two amazingly talented older women take the reins as leads in this heart-warming comedy. Nominated for an Emmy, Lily Tomlin is brightly perfect against the polished straight-man of Jane Fonda. Up against some stiff competition, so the likelihood of winning is unknown, the show itself is great.

Daredevil-650-80

Daredevil

Who would have known the Marvel Universe and superhero barrage would produce a great series?! The nuanced action-heavy show is up for noms in special effects and sound design. Super (no pun intended) entertaining television, it will keep you coming back for more.


Enjoy your weekend capturing all of the Netflix noms, and beyond. We will keep you posted as to where, when and how you can record the live-streaming Emmy Awards next weekend.

Our April Picks on Netflix Streaming

Our April Netflix Streaming Picks

Spring is here! The months are flying by and so are on-demand streaming options on the Netflix. Never feel conflicted again about what to watch. Available already (or before April ends) are a few of the movie and TV titles we’re firing up Replay Video Capture for… before they’re gone again.

 

Nicholas Cage in National Treasure Streaming on Netflix April 2015

National Treasure (2004)

This Nicolas Cage-led US history thriller stands alone. The perfect mix of unbelievable action and entertaining mystery, this family-friendly PG romp somehow makes the Founding Fathers seem undeniably interesting.

 

Record Simon Pegg's Hot Fuzz Streaming On Netflix This April

Hot Fuzz (2007)

If you’re looking to chuckle, than add this British hit to the Queue. Police officer slapstick and diamond-sharp wit collide in Simon Pegg’s cult comedy tour de force.

 

Capture Russel Crowe in Noah Streaming on Netflix April 2015

Noah (2014)

Director Darren Aaronofsky’s latest project – a Bible Epic starring Russel Crowe, Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly. Fun fact: The scenes on the Arc are shot on a real Arc, which they built for the film and which survived Hurricane Sandy.

 

Stream The Babadook on Netflix

The Babadook (2014)

Feeling like getting scared? This new school horror film doesn’t rely on gimmicks, handheld camera work or possession themes for a change. With a genuine plot surrounding a single mother and her son, this is a chilling movie… perfect before bed (not really).

 

Marvel's Daredevil now streaming on Netflix

Marvel’s Daredevil (season 1)

Another huge TV project from Marvel. Another Netflix original show. Don’t miss it. From the comic book pages to streaming on-demand, the story of a blind lawyer turned crime-fighter is much grittier than expected, which we love!

 

Capture Streaming Sons of Anarchy on Netflix April 2015

Sons Of Anarchy (season 7)

Motorcycles, Johnny Law, and typical gang mayhem awaits. The divisive biker sudo-period-drama’s last chapter is now streaming. Join the Sons as they ride off into the sunset of their final season.

Netflix Conflix: Goodbye, February

As the seasons change, so do the Netflix streaming options. And like the months before, March is blooming up fast. So dig into that queue and put these soon-to-be-removed movies on the list. Simply set up a time to record with your Replay Video Capture and have all of the streaming control you’d like with these gems well past February. Here are our favorites to say bye-bye from Netflix and hello with Applian recording software:

 

Brokedown Palace

A harrowing travel story about two young friends who find themselves wrongfully imprisoned in a Thai prison for smuggling drugs into Hong Kong. A very young Kate Beckinsale and Claire Danes play the main characters, with Bill Pullman as their American lawyer to free them from 33 years of imprisonment. An interesting film about justice and the bonds of friendship, it’s definitely worth seeing if you’ve never before.

 

Lords of Dogtown

Based on the true story of the beginnings of skateboarding in grimy Venice, California circa 1970’s; this fictionalization of the z-boys and the Zephyr skate team is the perfect time-machine to a seedy but exciting place in the sports’ legacy. Supreme acting performances by Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch, and directed by Catherine Hardwicke, it’s an entertaining ride with an awesome soundtrack.

Swiss Family Robinson

One of the classic Disney family films that ages well. About a family left stranded on a wild island, they fend for themselves. It features imaginative treehouses, frightening pirates, and a parade of exotic animals. The cinematography doesn’t disappoint some fifty years later and the scenic backdrop almost makes you wish you too were stranded there, perfectly nostalgic.

 

The Graduate

“Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me? Aren’t you?” Relive the awkwardness of Dustin Hoffman’s breakout role as Benjamin Braddock, the bewildered college student lured in by his girlfriend’s mother, played by the beautiful Anne Bancroft. It’s worth having in the library as a perfect time capsule.

 

Legends of the Fall

Okay, so technically this isn’t leaving Netflix until the very end of March, but it’s too good to not want to keep in your archives. Brad Pitt is more than a pretty face as the tough and brooding Tristan Ludow, alongside the brilliant Antony Hopkins as his father, and Aiden Quinn and Henry Thomas as the other Ludow brothers. Set in the rural America of the 1900s, this is a passionate movie about family, loss, war, and ultimately love.

Know Your Recording Rights (and Your Super Bowl Commercials)

superbowl-blog

Whew. What a game last Sunday! We could barely pull ourselves from our screen — especially in those last ten minutes. As we marveled in the replays and even went back to replay the streaming feed on NBC, thanks to our Replay Video Capture software, we realized that some customers and those non-Applian laymen might think that our insistence of recording this NFL game might be (*gasp) illegal. Well, ladies and gentlemen, it’s not. But the NFL does a fantastic job at making you think so. An intelligent Ars Technica article that came out last week does a great job explaining why it’s not. Here’s a sample:

The NFL is also drastically overstating its case when it comes to actual copies of the game or pictures coming from it. You can record the Super Bowl. It’s been undeniably, unquestionably legal since 1984 that you can record the broadcast to watch later (and skip commercials, if you’re so inclined). And the fair use doctrine that allows you to do this also lets you use those recordings for other purposes, too. If you want to use clips for commentary or criticism or news reporting of some aspect of the game or the broadcast, that’s perfectly legal, too.

So don’t fear, Applian friends. Go ahead and get your Super Bowl re-watch on. Oh, and if you missed all of the advertising action because of the NBC stream, we highly recommend that you check out this full recap of the multi-million-dollar spots.

Our personal favorite, and slightly underrated, was the pitch-perfect Sarah Silverman and Chelsea Handler commercial from T-Mobile. We hope it’s an ongoing theme, because we love seeing comedians do what they do best — make fun of themselves and each other:

Netflix Conflix: Holiday Edition

Can’t decide what to watch and record? We’re here to the rescue! Since it is the “most wonderful time of the year”, there’s no better time than now to get into the holiday spirit. On this edition of “Netflix Conflix” we’ve rounded up some of the merrier picks that Netflix is currently offering through streaming that you should record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online – plus, you can keep them in your arsenal for next season! Need help recording from Netflix? Just watch this helpful tutorial:

 

Scrooged: If you’re like us, then anything with Bill Murray is a winner. This 80s classic is the reinterpretation of “A Christmas Carol”, but with more snark and less Victorian London scenery. Not only is it a touching feel-good holiday film, but it is downright funny, thanks to Mr. Murray and his signature brand of effervescent charm.


White Christmas: Looking for a fluffy holiday musical that even grandma can love (or loves to re-watch)? Search no further. The insanely likable Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye duo give this classic Christmas tale a fun feel. You’ll be singing and dancing all evening, just hoping for more snow.


Nightmare Before Christmas: This Tim Burton family film is gorgeously unique and definitely has it’s place in the Holiday-Film-Hall-of-Fame (if there were one). Additionally filled with catchy tunes about the dreaded Christmas time and the revered Halloween, it’s the perfect transition from the scary to the sweet with emo-perfect execution.


The Fitzgerald Family Christmas: Written and directed by Ed Burns, this is a recent (2012) holiday drama that profiles a broken family trying to find that Christmas spirit. A fantastic ensemble cast and authentic feel make this film about family dynamics and drama one to distract you from your own sibling chaos this year.

 

A Saturday Night Live Christmas: Okay, so this one is technically not a Netflix streaming option, but thankfully you have Replay Video Catcher and can also get in on all of the Hulu action too! The 40-year-old TV institution compiled it’s best holiday-related sketches into one hilarious giant “show”. Relive all the funny and relish in performances from cast members past.
