How to Record & Save the French Open

The 2017 French Open kicks off Monday, May 22, at Stade Roland Garros in Paris, France, marking the beginning of the second stretch of the infamous Grand Slam tournament. Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are clear favorites for the win the Men’s title this year, with Stan Wawrinka (2015 champion) slowly closing in under the radar of media attention. Experts are doubtful that anyone other than Nadal will take it all home for the 10th time, however.

We’re in for some intense head-to-heads and matchups between highly-skilled players this year.

9 Powerful Hacks for the Ultimate Netflix Experience

Love kicking back for a relaxing night with Netflix? Us too. No matter how much time you spend watching, though, you’ll never be a real power user if you don’t poke around under the entertainment hood. We took the time to really dive in (so you don’t have to), and rounded up a collection of tricks will greatly improve your Netflix experience.

Here are our top tips to take your Netflix binges to the next level:

1. Switch to high quality

High quality is the best quality when you’re enjoying movies online. You can manually force HD playback on Netflix on your TV to ensure your media is always shown in the highest-quality possible. First, make sure that your internet connection supports streaming 5 megabits/second or more, then log in and go to Account Settings > Playback Settings to select high quality.

(Note: Chrome users won’t be able to use this trick – sorry!)

2. Stream off peak hours

This may seem a little more on the obvious side, but choosing to stream Netflix shows NOT during peak hours will always award you with better quality. When less people are using Netflix overall, it improves downstream data traffic and thus, your viewing experience.

3. Use your phone as a remote

Lost the remote in your couch cushions again? You can turn any smartphone into a remote control just by downloading the Netflix app for iPhone, Android or Windows Phone. Once installed and synced properly, you’ll be able to play, pause, stop and browse all from your connected device. Technology rules.

4. Create multiple profiles

We all have those guilty, yet amazing, pleasures we jump to when no one else is around to judge our viewing habits. Now you don’t have to hide when you create multiple profiles on Netflix! It’s free, easy to set up, and you’ll be able to generate a different profile for your chick flicks, horror movies, or anything else you may want to keep separate from your main account.

5. Say goodbye to buffering

Buffering movies and shows on your laptop can be a serious time-waster. To get rid of buffering in Netflix while playing a title, select Shift+Opt (Shift+Alt for Windows) and left click to open up a “hidden” menu called the Stream Manage. You’ll find buffering fixes, along with some other helpful tips!

(Note: For Chrome users, press Ctrl+Shift+Alt/Opt+S to access this menu.)

6. Find the best flicks

Reddit brings out the best (and sometimes worst) parts of the Internet. Use it to your advantage and head to r/netflixbestof to check out all of the best, most painstakingly-selected shows and movies to see so you never have to browse aimlessly again.

7. Record anything for later

Technology now allows us to record streaming movies and television shows from Netflix to watch forever, even after the site has taken them down. Using Replay Video Capture, you can screen record ANYTHING on Netflix in amazingly high-quality formats.

8. Enhance your viewing

Browser extensions are better than they’ve ever been. With one add-on in Chrome called Netflix Enhancements, you can instantly access IMDB profiles, movie trailers, pop-up ratings from sources like Metacritic and Rotten Tomatoes, and more. You can even customize what you see once it’s installed.

9. Utilize keyboard shortcuts

Because streaming TV shows and movies should be as efficient as any other kind of digital hacking, Netflix keyboard shortcuts exist to streamline your viewing:

  • Play/Pause – Space bar OR Enter key
  • Play – Page Up key
  • Pause – Page Down key
  • Enable Full screen – F key
  • Disable Full screen – Esc key
  • Rewind 10 seconds – Shift + Left Arrow
  • Fast Forward 10 seconds – Shift + Right Arrow
  • Volume Up/Down – Up Arrow/Down Arrow
  • Mute On/Off – M key
  • Toggle by frame – CTRL + Space bar

How to Grow Your Personal Music Collection for Free

record music

With the number of music access points online, you can listen to practically anything these days. In fact, streaming music online has nearly doubled in the last year, making this form of consumption the most used and consistent in growth by far.

It’s pretty incredible to have access to these vast catalogs of music, but listening is often limited to an Internet connection and, in some cases, a paid subscription. Along with the constant battle between streaming sites, it’s impossible to tap into a complete library of music at any time without being connected. In short, the benefits to building out your own collection of music may outweigh the “convenience” of online access alone.

Record Music Anywhere Online

Enter Replay Music into the music scene – a powerful, unique audio recorder built and specifically optimized for capturing music from online streaming services or media players. Designed for both Mac and PC, you can record from sites like Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music and more.

  • Save any music into high-quality MP3 files.
  • Separate individual tracks.
  • Automatically tag with metadata and add artwork.
  • Eliminate system sounds and background noises for a clean recording.

Here’s how to use Replay Music to capture music online:

 

Replay Music is 100% legal to use, just like a CD ripping program, tape recorder or DVR! Fear not – you can record and convert all of the music you want to expand your personal collection!
