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.

The End of Grooveshark Recording?

It looks like Grooveshark is in a heap of trouble, according to this article in Ars Technica.

A judge found that Grooveshark employees were encouraged to upload thousands of songs to the service. As far as I understand the legality, if users upload it’s OK for Grooveshark, but it’s pretty obviously a copyright violation if employees of the company are doing it – especially when directed by management. This violates the basic rule of thumb of copyright law: Don’t redistribute other people’s stuff without their permission.

There’s still a lot of great music sites out there (which Replay Media Catcher and Replay Music record from nicely). But Grooveshark is one of my favorites.

Best Media Sites: LOL Edition

So you know about YouTube and Netflix. But what about those undiscovered gems around the Internet just ripe for the downloading? Check out these Replay Media Catcher compatible sites. Note that not all sites are viewable in all countries.

This month, we wanted to feature the sites that tickle our funny bone, make us spit take, and get us smiling from ear to ear. Here are five fantastic sites that you are definitely going to want to download video from, and keep forever… because laughter is contagious and continual.


The celebrity-endorsed platform for hilarious series and one-offs, where you can catch the very watch worthy “Drunk History” and “Between Two Ferns With Zack Galifinakis” along with a ton of other giggle-making sketches.


More centered on Internet memes and pop culture, Cracked offers some humorous takes on everything from Doctor Who to Kanye West. Also, check out the “Artist In Residency Program” where they feature a filmmaker hand-picked for your viewing pleasure.


The OG funny video site still has quite a bit of life – and not as many cat memes. With a new Video section in Beta, they are experimenting with a whole channel devoted to Cheez-approved YouTube content. Don’t worry; there are still cat videos.


This site is full of hilarious distractions. Everything from GIFs, to listicles, to random factoids, you can loose yourself for hours on The Chive. If you’re looking to capture some funny, watch and record their trending videos for a clue as to what will be popping up in your Facebook feed next.


Another classic funny video site, College Humor has been serving up the chuckles for 15 years, and boasts an impressive collection of original series and sketches. Our personal favorite is “Phantom of the Office” – we’d hire him just to keep us laughing.

As always, be sure to use only the best to download your favorite videos and media using Replay Media Catcher. If you’ve got a favorite video outlet on the web, be sure to give us the low-down in the comments or on our Facebook Page.

Let’s Talk About Replay Media Catcher and HTTPS

Replay Media Catcher HTTPS/SSL Scanning

Keeping up with the constant changes in streaming protocols is just the job for Replay Media Catcher‘s Engineers. They like a challenge and frequently whip up very smart solutions to very tough problems. If you’ve installed the most recent version of Replay Media Catcher, you’ll see that we’ve made some great improvements. And if you like to download streams from YouTube, then you’ve likely seen the new prompt to install a CA certificate. So what’s that all about? Have no fear! We’re here to break it down for you. Let’s get nerdy, shall we?

YouTube and some other sites now stream their media over an HTTPS connection by default. So what is HTTPS? Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure is the secure version of http. Typically used when a secure connection is necessary. Like for ecommerce transactions and such. When you connect to a website that is using HTTPS, the session is encrypted with a Digital Certificate.

Let’s first look at how Replay Media Catcher downloads, then we’ll explain how installing the CA Certificate helps it to do it’s job better.  When you switch on Replay Media Catcher, it starts sniffing the network traffic. Looking for media to download. As you come across streaming video or music, Replay Media Catcher decodes that network traffic and if it understands what it is seeing on the network, it tries to detect and download the media based on intelligence we’ve written for that protocol. Pretty slick, right? That’s how Replay Media Catcher can download so much more without browser plugins. It simply does not need them. It only listens to the network.

Let’s say you’ve switched on Replay Media Catcher’s monitoring and you’re happily browsing along and decide to download the latest viral video on YouTube. Remember we said that YouTube is now streaming their media over an HTTPS connection.. SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. When you see HTTPS in the URL, you are using the SSL/TLS protocol to speak to that website. Replay Media Catcher will then not understand that traffic and disregard it.  That sounds like bad news, right? Nope! Read on…

If you’re running Replay Media Catcher version or later, you’ll notice a new prompt when it first sees media from a site that is streaming over HTTPS. This prompt explains that in order for Replay Media Catcher to scan for media that is streamed over HTTPS, a CA certificate is required to be created. A CA (Certificate Authority) is an authority in a network that issues and manages security credentials.

You can choose to allow HTTPS scanning or not. If you choose no, Replay Media Catcher will ignore any HTTPS streaming and you’ll be sad. That breaks my heart. Say YES!

Replay Media Catcher HTTPS

If you choose YES, (and we recommend you do) then Windows will prompt you to install the CA certificate.  Windows presents you with this:

Windows Security Warning

The title of the window says “Security Warning”. Yeah, well…it’s not a problem. Windows is just letting you know that a certificate is about to be installed. Windows says that it cannot validate the certificate as actually being from Replay Media Catcher, but have no fear. We have created a certificate called Replay Media Catcher 5 SSL Scanner Root. Essentially, it allows Replay Media Catcher to scan HTTPS traffic like that being served by YouTube for downloadable media. It is absolutely safe. And you are not putting yourself or your computer in any danger by installing it.

Don’t miss out on all the great streaming goodness that Replay Media Catcher can download. It’s waaay smarter than any other streaming media downloader. Guaranteed!

Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!

Today, we are doing SCIENCE! Did a parent ever warn you not to stick a soda in the freezer? Sure, that may have been a rhetorical question, but what about sticking a can of soda in liquid nitrogen? NurdRage on YouTube does all kinds of science experiments … and you should probably let him do them instead of trying yourself.

Oh, and if you are having trouble downloading YouTube videos with Replay Media Catcher 5, make sure that secure http (https) is not being used. See here for more information.

Frozen is Disney’s latest animated masterpiece. My daughter has practically memorized all the songs, so I hear the music constantly after work. And the songs are stuck in my head when I go out running. Personally, I found the story to be very sad. Then again, I tear up when the Emperor zaps Luke at the end of Return of the Jedi. For those of you who haven’t seen Frozen yet, this video won’t give away any spoilers:

The full, real soundtrack can be heard at places such as Grooveshark and Spotify and grabbed with Replay Media Catcher 5 and Replay Music 6.
