March Madness 2018: Where to Watch & Record Online

If March Madness 2018 is anything like the regular season, we’re in for an intense and totally unpredictable postseason tournament. Trust us, you’re not going to want to miss a minute. While nothing’s ever set-in-stone, FiveThirtyEight statistics are pointing to a few clear regional leads who may continue to advance:

Men’s Teams

According to Forbes:

“Only half of the schools that reached their respective regionals are ones a majority thought would reach this point. This group includes No. 1 Villanova, No. 1 Kansas, No. 2 Purdue, No. 2 Duke, No. 3 Michigan, No. 4 Gonzaga and No. 5 Kentucky…

The remainder of the Sweet 16 field is compromised of a rag-tag collection of double-digit seeds—No. 11 Loyola-Chicago and No. 11 Syracuse pulled off back-to-back upsets to shock the world—and middle-seeded programs that weren’t given much of a chance to get through their pod because a consensus powerhouse was blocking the way through the bracket.”

Additionally, the NCAA March Madness Twitter account just recently tweeted out the most updated brackets:

The 5 Most Popular Series on BBC iPlayer to Download and Save

Among the streaming giants we normally keep up-to-date on, BBC iPlayer is one of the largest abroad. While noticing that services like Netflix and Amazon were taking a big portion of the viewers, the BBC took a digital approach when they made full series of shows available online after being shown on live TV. Now, BBC iPlayer is at its absolute best; viewers are streaming an average of 272 million shows every month.

With BBC being one of the leading providers of amazing content like shows, movies, and documentaries, there’s a comprehensive catalog of media to consume and enjoy on their platform, including many top-rated UK series. We’ve taken a deep dive into the most popular titles on BBC iPlayer – you can record every last one of them using (a DNS service like Getflix. if you’re in the United States and) the power of Replay Media Catcher!

1. The Young Offenders

The Young Offenders, while fairly new, has already rounded up a ton of acclaim from comedy viewers in the UK, USA, and beyond who enjoy a good belly laugh. Starring Alex Murphy, Chris Walley as two teenage friends (Conor and Jock) from Cork, the show follows their follies and journeys in stealing bikes, hatching up crazy plans, and going on impromptu adventures ultimately on the quest to find a missing bale of cocaine worth 7,000,000 euros. 

2. EastEnders

EastEnders is a truly classic British drama/soap opera that was created by Julia Smith and Tony Holland in the early 80’s and has been featured regularly on BBC One since 1985. Like many other soap operas, the general storyline sounds simple enough, following a family or working-class folks of Albert Square; however, it manages to discuss many social, societal, and even “taboo” issues that made the show way ahead of its time.

3. MasterChef

 

MasterChef is one of those cooking shows that you can kick but can never keep down. There’s nothing people love more than watching competitive cooking, baking, and perfecting of food that you can practically smell it looks so good. After a brief hiatus of the program in the early 2000’s, MasterChef has been better than ever (and making our mouths water!). Pro tip: check out all of the spin-off programs to get all of the cooking competition you can handle.

4. Shetland

If you love Scottish accents, beautiful scenery, and a whole bunch of true crime, Shetland is the perfect show for you. This crime drama series stars Douglas Henshall as Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez, a Detective Inspector on the Scottish archipelago of Shetland who has a no-B.S. attitude when it comes to cracking cases. For fans of the recent true crime drama movement, this is one show you won’t want to keep off your list.

5. Call the Midwife

Call the Midwife is a period piece that some might describe as “perfect.” Adapted by Heidi Thomas from the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this dramatic show provides a new perspective on the lives and women behind midwifery in 1950s East End London. Chiefly following a midwife named Jenny and a crew of lovable nuns, Call the Midwife is a refreshing series full of amazing women who care for people.

 

Important Note: BBC iPlayer lets you stream shows and movies, but only if you’re watching in the UK. The easiest way to watch BBC iPlayer in the United States and other areas abroad is to use a DNS service like Getflix.

Replay Media Catcher is the only software out there that can record high-quality video of streaming movies and other media online. BONUS TIP! Use the live stream monitor feature to easily keep track of your favorite streaming shows and entertainment on BBC iPlayer, and automatically download. Don’t miss these exclusive series and shows before they’re gone – use Replay Media Catcher to save them all.

Applian User Experience: Saving Online Classes & Webinars

Whether in an academic or professional setting, continued education is a lifelong commitment. While businesses and marketers have their focus on video content, the eyes of many key industries of the world have taken notice as well; in particular, that of financial trading. For one of our own customers working as a professional financial Futures Trader, keeping up with the industry and its many represented markets was not only important to her career, it was imperative.

Janene Ayer understood that, in her field of work, staying up-to-date on the latest market trends meant referencing the past historical data, as well.

“The market repeats itself all of the time. The setups that happen repeat themselves. You can watch for them and make a lot of money and also if you do not know what to look for you can lose a lot of money. So when I can go back and review what has happened in the past it makes my chances of catching these moves a lot better. I use Applian software mainly to capture webinars and classes that I want to review and to keep on file.”

With our Replay Video Capture software, Janene has been able to record high-quality videos of every historical trading video in existence online. Replay Video Capture is the best way to make a video recording from any online site, including hard-to-record sources.

Essential YouTube Hacks for Every Video Watcher

youtube to mp3

If you’re anything like us, you can hardly go a day without opening up YouTube to watch a video online. Plus, with the cold winter season settled in and making us want to stay warm and cozy, it’s inevitable that YouTube is in for a boost in viewership. While the popular video streaming site makes it possible to watch videos on any topic, served up by folks from all walks of life, there are still more cool things to be discovered.

Ready for the most entertaining YouTube experience of your life? Check out our top tips, tricks, and hacks to help kick your viewing up a notch.

1. Create an auto-lineup of your favorites

Have a few favorite YouTubers that you binge-watch again and again? You can create a meta playlist that holds ALL of the video uploads from a single uploader (in order of upload date, chronologically). To do this, just add “&list=UL” to any video URL on YouTube.

(GIF via 1 Live)

2. Conquer country-specific videos

Sometimes, YouTube videos can have restrictions based on geographic regions. That’s why you’ll get that “The uploader has not made this video available in your country” pop-up message when you stumble on a cool video from far away. Luckily, this trick lets you watch any video from any country.

Here’s how regular YouTube links appears: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxxx

Copy the string of characters defined by our “xxxx” example above, and paste it so that the URL is: http://www.youtube.com/v/xxxx

3. Watch in HD mode all the time

High definition is ALWAYS better, but sometimes your Internet connection can get in the way. Unlock HD mode by adding a couple of secret codes to the end of your video URL. Get stereo sound and 480×270 resolution with “&fmt=18”, or “&fmt=22” for 1280×720 resolution.

4. Jump through age restrictions

We’re all for keeping PG-13 videos for more mature eyes only, but sometimes the age restrictions on YouTube videos can be bothersome for legal adults. Instead of signing in or clicking through to verify your age, just add “nsfw.” to the beginning of your entire video’s URL, so that it appears like this: nsfw.youtube.com

5. Hunt for all the hidden Easter eggs

Cleverly hidden in YouTube’s source code are secrets just waiting to be discovered and unlocked. Here are some of our favorites:

  • Search “Beam me up Scotty” and your results will show up like they were transported through space.
  • Repeat any video (forever!) by right-clicking on the video and selecting “Loop.”
  • Like old games? Type the numbers “1980” while your video is playing and the Missile Control game will appear.
  • An homage to the Wadsworth Constant, a meme that stated the first 30% of any video isn’t worth your time, you can enter “&wadsworth=1” at the end of a YouTube video URL and it’ll auto-skip the first 30% for you.

6. Access unique 360-degree videos

YouTube launched their support for 360-degree videos earlier in 2016, letting users have a complete view of key videos and live events. With Chrome installed on your computer, you can rotate around and see every angle just by using your mouse. On mobile through the YouTube app, a simple screen swivel can lead you into new 360-degree journeys.

7. Download videos & turn audio files into MP3s

Take your favorite videos with you, in any file type you need! With Replay Media Catcher, you can download YouTube videos with just one quick drag-and-drop movement and automatically convert YouTube to MP3, WMV, AVI and more popular file formats.
