How to Record from Philo TV

With new and incredible services online offering the opportunity to binge-watch some new and groundbreaking movies and exclusive series, it’s great to know that it’s still possible to watch some of our very favorite channels online, without limits. With cable packages offering endless bundles of channels that you would never watch, and at prices seriously run amok, it’s no wonder that more and more people are making the switch to watching some of their favorite channels online. With Philo TV, you get all of your favorite entertainment and lifestyle channels, for a pretty great price, and not only that, there are a bunch of other perks that it comes with as well.

What’s Great About Philo TV?

Philo TV is an online subscription TV service that works from any device. Originally it worked only with Roku, but has since joined the big leagues of Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire TV, just to name a few. It’s a great place to stream and watch some of your favorite programs on over 58 channels (Hello, Food Network!), so you’ll always have something to fit your mood. With Philo TV, you can capture all of your binge-worthy programs, and watch them live, later or binge them all at once. Unlike network or cable TV, you don’t have to wait each week for a brand new episode!

One of the coolest things about the service? It gives you unlimited recording in-app, so you don’t have to limit yourself to only the shows you want to save. You can pretty much save any offering they have, and to make it even better, you can stream from three separate devices simultaneously. No more fights over who gets to have the remote.

With all that great stuff, it can’t go wrong, can it? Well, that depends. While it’s great to have in-app recording, it’s not really unlimited. You can record anything, but the recordings only last for a maximum of 30 days. That means you can carefully curate your absolute favorite shows, and create the ultimate playlist, only to lose everything after a month.

But what if you want to keep them longer? Replay Media Catcher has you covered. You can stream any of your favorite shows online, and save them, no matter what, so no matter how much time passes, you’ll never miss a thing.

How do you do it? Replay Media Catcher makes it so easy!

How to Record from Philo TV

You don’t have to miss a single show from Philo TV with Replay Media Catcher. All you have to do is follow these easy steps:

Step 1:

Open Replay Media Catcher for Windows or Mac.

Step 2:

Select “Auto Monitoring” to turn on.

Step 3:

Log in to your Philo TV account. Next, find the show that you want to save and start playing it. Once it begins, Replay Media Catcher will download it in a matter of seconds!

Download Streaming Media: 4 Best Websites to Stream & Save

Streaming media like music, movies, and shows online has been around for decades now, but has reached new levels of popularity with the introduction of popular (often paid) services. As cable-cutting becomes more intuitive and budget-friendly, traditional cable subscriptions are increasingly more complicated and pricey. It’s a no-brainer why entertainment enthusiasts are choosing options for streaming media online.

Because no one streaming service is created equal (and can have frequently rotating collections of content), we created the software in Replay Capture Suite to save it all. If you can stream it online, you can record and save it forever, no matter the device or internet connection. Here are our favorite streaming sites to record media online:

Netflix

A clear winner in many streamers’ eyes, Netflix is powerhouse in the online streaming industry. With so many titles available at any given time, you can stay entertained for hours (as long as you have internet and the titles you want are still there).

To record, download and capture movies and TV shows from Netflix, you can count on Replay Video Capture. To record from Netflix, just get Replay Video Capture, open Netflix and play the video you want to record, then click “Start Recording.” Replay Video Capture will automatically store your recorded content into a high quality format you can watch anywhere.

All you have to do is open the program on your computer, start the music, and click “Record” to record any music from Spotify.

Soundcloud gained its popularity in the MySpace era of the mid-2000’s with their simple platform for musicians to upload and share music. Naturally, this also attracted a lot of listeners, and today the streaming site boasts over 175 million monthly users.

Replay Music is the most powerful way to record Soundcloud music directly to high quality MP3 files. Advanced recording technology captures only the music you want to hear, and never any system sounds or background noises.

How to Record Every Virtual Business Meeting

record virtual meetings

How many virtual meetings are held in your office in a given month? How about during a regular week? For many professionals working in remote and in-office jobs alike, the number may be growing. In a recent Successful Meetings survey, 33% of respondents said that they plan to hold more virtual meetings in the coming year (compared to just 2% who plan on fewer) — an increase that’s larger than any other type of work meeting in use today.

With popular services offering somewhat-reliable connections, Skype, Google Hangouts, Join.me, and many other video conferencing platforms are in high demand.

Why Hold Virtual Meetings?

With the rise of telecommuting, remote offices (like our own), and completely virtual teams, the need for reliable, online-only meetings has become hugely important. Virtual meetings are hugely popular for a number of reasons:

  • They can aid in the streamlining and efficiency of meetings (up to a certain amount of time, at least).
  • They help small businesses, remote teams and startups to save money on costs related to chat and calls.
  • You can share your screen with coworkers, run a presentation, or discuss with live visuals.
  • They allow international, or cross-country teams to see, hear and work together — much like how we get things done in our business.
  • They actually reduce travel time and help improve productivity in many cases, since they don’t have to leave their environment to dial in.

With every virtual meeting held through video conferencing comes a need for a thorough agenda, accurate meeting minutes, and follow-up items. While the average employee can type at a decent speed, having a single person responsible for capturing a record of each meeting can be an impossible task.

How to Record Video Calls

A newer technique being adopted by remote-operating businesses (and those using video conferencing) is to use a video recording solution in tandem with notes and minutes. Replay Telecorder is the most powerful, easy-to-use video conference recorder out there — you can record virtual meetings held on Skype, Google Hangouts, Join.me, GoToMeeting, and every other application you can think of with perfect accuracy. 

With simple, one-click recording to start right away and a fast background mode to capture and multi-task, it’s a super-efficient solution to recording and saving every virtual business meeting, brainstorm, and more. Here’s how to record every virtual business meeting using Replay Telecorder:

  1. First, open up Skype, Google Hangouts, or whichever conferencing app you use for business. Then, launch Replay Telecorder on your computer.
  2. If you’re using Skype for your virtual meetings, Replay Telecorder will automatically detect the window for you. If you’re using a different video conferencing application, just click Mark to manually select the area of the screen that you want to record.
  3. Click Record to start recording.
  4. Click Stop to stop recording.
  5. Click Play to playback the last recording.

Please Note: For best results, when recording on High Definition displays (1920×1080) or higher, keep the size of the video window to a minimum. Do not use full screen or larger size windows. Skype™ consumes a lot of CPU on HD displays when large windows are utilized.

Check out our complete User Guide for more information and helpful tips.

Have any questions, or need help getting set up? We’re here for anything you might need.

Legal note: In many countries, it is illegal to record a phone call without the consent of the other party. We recommend telling all participants in a phone call that they are being recorded when using Replay Telecorder.
