Applian User Experience: Saving Lives with Paramedic Training Videos

For on-staff and volunteer firefighters, EMTs, paramedics, and other emergency services, knowing exactly what to do in the most efficient manner possible is always the most important consideration. When training newcomers on the best practices for first response, visual techniques can be the best way to really show, explain, and drive real lessons home – a loyal Applian customer knows this all too well, and uses the software to piece together the most comprehensive training videos possible.

Gary has been designing firefighting and paramedic training videos for over a decade now, and has always been in search of new and interesting video and audio inserts for these videos.

“I came across Applian back then, when getting videos off of YouTube was next to impossible to do – but, when I tried the trial version program, it worked!

I now use the Replay Capture Suite to gather great videos and audio clips from all over the world. When permission is granted from gathered departments to use their materials, I put their department’s name in my credits, and there is a sense of pride when I send a copy of that training video to them and they see themselves, their department, and their full credit at the end of the videos.”

Using the Replay Media Catcher software from our Replay Capture Suite (among other tools), Gary and everyone he distributes these training videos to can benefit from the variety of information that’s pieced together. And, for every paramedic and firefighter that watches these training videos, another life could be changed or even saved!

“Thanks Applian for bringing together a service to help train emergency services personnel worldwide.”

Applian User Experience: Going Off-Grid with Your Favorite Movies

When you’re out in the middle of nowhere for an extended period of time, chances are you’ll want access to your favorite movies, music, and more in order to help pass the time every once in a while. Going off-grid entirely runs the risk of no Internet, and in many cases, no wireless service, either. For one of our own customers who frequently enjoys running off into the woods, being able to stockpile and save all the media he wants before leaving the city is a lifesaver.

Matthew spends his summers enjoying an almost completely off-grid cabin in order to get away from it all and soak in nature. While this is an incredible annual experience, there are always some times where having a great movie or album to listen to can help entertain for an evening.

“Spending my summer in an off-grid cabin with metered wireless internet, I cannot be a regular consumer of streaming media; instead, I “stock up” when I go into town and have accessed to “unlimited”/unmetered internet.

Far too many information providers provide streaming-only content (be it audio or video), which would otherwise preclude me from effectively utilizing (especially at times more convenient to me), despite even being a paid subscriber to said content. Reply Media Catcher solves this problem most effectively for me, enabling an off-line storage of important media so I can consume at my leisure, instead of having less constructive “binge-fests” when around capable internet connections.”

Using our powerful Replay Media Catcher software, Matthew has been effectively able to save all of the media he could possibly want, enabling himself to have full access to his favorites without the use of any wireless internet or data plan. For media-consumers like Matthew, our program for downloading media offline is the perfect way to save show episodes, feature films, podcasts, videos, and even music from popular sites and services, so they can enjoy anytime. As Matthew puts it:

“It has really made a huge difference in facilitating my disconnected lifestyle this summer!”

How Does Replay Media Catcher Work?

Replay Media Catcher can expertly record streaming online video and audio with perfect quality. It’s an easy, yet powerful way to capture video and audio files from thousands of websites as they play in any web browser.

Replay Media Catcher is especially well suited for recording from major online sources. It even…

  • Saves any online video at any available quality.
  • Records audio from ANY source as it plays.
  • Automatically converts recorded files to a format of your choice.
  • Lets you schedule recordings from any playable URL at a time you choose.
