Explain Like I’m Five: Video Series – Download them all with Replay Media Catcher

I just discovered Reddit’s Explain Like I’m Five Video Series (okay so I am a little behind in my reading ) – You can see an example of one here.

It’s a fabulous series for two reasons – 1.) It brings to video their already popular text series ELI5 – and who wouldn’t rather watch a video than read a web page? 2.) It takes the concept literally – and actually tries to explain complex concepts to five year olds. Their reactions are great.

Of course I used Replay Media Catcher to download my favorites – put them on my phone – and showed to anyone who seemed mildly interested. 🙂

Installing Replay Media Catcher on Windows 8

Replay Media Catcher in Windows 8

YouTube video: Downloading, Installing and Using Replay Media Catcher in Windows 8I just created a short video showing how to install and use Replay Media Catcher on Windows 8.

As long as you are in desktop mode in Windows 8, your experience using Replay Media Catcher will be no different than in earlier versions of Windows. Watch the video and see.

There is one slightly new thing that may occur during your download of Replay Media Catcher – you may be asked to install .NET Framework. Windows offered to help me find the program – and then did find it and install it on my PC. Once it was installed, I saw this screen and Replay Media Catcher finished downloading.

Have you tried Replay Media Catcher with Windows 8 yet? How’d it go?

Download Video from the BBC iPlayer with Replay Media Catcher

BBC iPlayer

Last week we were at a trade show demonstrating our software and were so surprised at how many people didn’t realize that Replay Media Catcher can download video from the BBC iPlayer. When we showcased Replay Media Catcher in action people were really amazed.

I made a short little video showing how Replay Media Catcher works with the iPlayer – you can see it here.

There is such wonderful content available through the iPlayer. Downloading the shows and watching them on my iPad – when I am offline – has been great. Replay Media Catcher makes that so easy. Especially with its built in converter.

Are there other sites that you are interested in downloading? Remember we have a great tool on our homepage that will show you which products will work with each site. Have you tried our tool recently?

Why not give it a whirl.

Enjoy!

Download USTREAM Video with Replay Media Catcher

Today was a big day for streaming media. There was so much to watch and enjoy streaming live online. Just before President Obama was sworn in I found myself in a place without cable TV – but no worries I had my laptop.

USTREAM

And thanks to Replay Media Catcher I had the ability to download uStream video of the inauguration.

It was easy. You can use Replay Media Catcher to download USTREAM Video the same way you would download video from any other site – just open Replay Media Catcher, click on “start monitoring” and then go to uSTREAM and start playing the video you want to capture. Replay Media Catcher will start downloading the stream as soon as it starts playing. You can watch your progress right in the Replay Media Catcher user interface.

When capturing the live streams on USTREAM you need to remember to stop Replay Media Catcher when you have downloaded the portion of the video you want, as live streams don’t have an ending the same way a recorded show does. Once I had downloaded the part of the Inaugural I was looking for I just right clicked on the recorded file in the Replay Media Catcher user interface and clicked on “cancel”. The recording stopped and I was able to play it back beautifully with my FLV player.

Hope you had a great day! Happy Monday, Happy Martin Luther King Day, Happy Inauguration and Happy Downloading.
