How Online Video Streaming Technology Has Changed

Today, technological advancements are being made faster than ever before. With companies everywhere releasing regular updates to their hardware and software, we are able to do more with greater efficiency and ease. However, this fast pace of change can make it difficult for technology consumers — us — to keep up. Which shiniest gadget to buy? Which software update to install? As it turns out, choosing great software is often much more important than choosing the machine that runs it. With the most up to date version installed, you’ll benefit from the latest features including important security updates, bug fixes and compatibility enhancements.

Recently, online video streaming technology has changed dramatically, and its popularity increased exponentially to match.  So much so, that many companies have been built on offering online video streaming as their main value proposition. The shift comes as no surprise, as in the last ten years online video has become essential to how people are entertained, how students learn, and how businesses communicate. In fact, a recent report estimates that more than two-thirds of global consumer internet traffic is already comprised of video

In the last decade, the most notable changes to online video streaming include:

  • An increase from 10% to 80% of online videos that were encoded using the H.264 compression format (the most commonly used format for recording, compression, and distribution of video content) in a span of just two years, between 2010 and 2012
  • A near-complete shift away from historical Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) as a means of sharing video. With HTTP, a video first needed to be downloaded before playback could begin. Now, users have shifted to custom protocols and servers built for a new type of online video delivery called streaming — what we rely on today
  • The rise and fall of multicast as a means of online video delivery
  • Introduction of Smooth Streaming by Microsoft, HLS, HDS, and DASH, which have driven a resurgence in HTTP-based video delivery

Most users have seen first-hand how greatly online video streaming technology has changed, thanks in part to the long list of applications and offerings available, such as YouTube and Netflix, just to name a few. However, the biggest changes have taken place under the hood. To avoid security and compatibility issues in particular, companies have needed to update their hardware and software over the years in tandem. At Applian, we’re no different! Our experts stay up to date on the latest developments, so that our customers can capture and download online video safely and effortlessly.

4 Documentaries That Will Change the Way You Think About Planet Earth

During these the past few months, there was a shared, global surge in awareness about the impact that humans have on the planet. With significantly lower levels of air pollution in main city centres such as Paris, Beijing and New York, the ability to witness bioluminescence in oceans, and the return of wildlife back to cities, humans’ impact on the planet has never been more apparent. For those of us who are most curious about the flora and fauna of the planet, we’ve corralled 4 documentaries that you simply must watch — they will truly change the way you think about the earth!

Night on Earth

There just isn’t another documentary out there that comes even close to Night on Earth. With the help of state-of-the-art technology, the docuseries takes us from the African Savanna to the Peruvian desert to show us the lives of predators and prey, and how closely they are linked to the moon’s cycles. Shot completely during nighttime hours, you will often forget that the images on-screen were recorded in complete darkness. Let Night on Earth lift the veil of the night’s darkness and discover a whole other world you’ve never seen.

Chasing Coral

It was just a few years ago that we began to take notice about experts’ warnings regarding the disappearing coral in our oceans. The scientific community has found that warmer water temperatures can result in coral bleaching — an unfortunate phenomenon that takes place when the water is too warm and corals expel the algae (zooxanthellae) that lives in their tissues, causing the coral to turn completely white. While a bleached coral is not dead, and in fact corals can survive a bleaching event, they are under more stress and are at risk of dying. With that in mind, Chasing Coral is about a team of divers, scientists and photographers around the world who document the disappearance of coral reefs, providing an eye-opening look at the often irreversible human impact on the planet.

The Ivory Game

In this saddening look at the illegal ivory trade in China and Hong Kong, The Ivory Game directors Keif Davidson, Richard Ladkani and their crew spend 16 months undercover to investigate the killing of elephants for their tusks and the smuggling of ivory to China. While the trade is illegal, there is a thriving black market where corrupt business practices and dealings occur, constantly feeding the demand for ivory in China and Hong Kong, where it is seen as a status symbol. The film takes viewers from Tanzania, Kenya, and Zambia to China, Hong Kong, and Vietnam, with a brief stop in London.

A Plastic Ocean

Award-winning documentary, A Plastic Ocean, is an adventure film that was shot in more than 20 locations over the span of four years. Explorers Craig Leeson and Tanya Streeter plus a team of international scientists explore the fragile state of our oceans to reveal the alarming causes and consequences of plastic pollution, while sharing working solutions that can be put into immediate effect.

How To Stay Connected: Our Top 5 Virtual Hangouts Right Now

As more of us are being called upon to #stayathome, the more creative people are getting about reshaping their daily lives online.

It’s more important than ever to stay connected, and nowadays there are hundreds of ways to do it. Whether we are looking to connect professionally, personally, or purely for social reasons, staying at home is still a great opportunity for people to meet and get together. 

To do so, people around the world are turning to video chat giants like Zoom, Google Hangouts and Skype among others, making sure that they are able to not only get in touch with groups of people, but also to do it in a variety of ways. With Replay Telecorder, you can be sure to record your virtual events so that you can always playback your favorite moments. 

What are some of the best opportunities to get together?

Connecting Remotely with Your Work Team:

If you work from home, then connecting with your team is a must. From creating a supportive environment in your home office, to managing essential planning meetings, connecting is crucial. One of the most effective ways that remote teams stay connected is to make sure to set up regular times to meet and connect virtually. With Google Hangouts, Zoom and Skype, your meetings can accommodate teams of any size. Make sure that you keep track of important information by keeping a recording of your virtual meetings.

Staying Fit While #stayinghome:

You’d be amazed at the variety of fitness classes that are being offered online. From free fitness routines that you can find on YouTube, to the fitness class offerings that are opening up online, there is no reason to fall off of your fitness routine. But if you are like most, then it’s likely that having a fitness buddy (or a group of them) is your best motivator. Cue up your favorite online workouts, and then hop in a Hangout with your favorite workout partners to keep those endorphins pumping! Don’t forget to record your workout, so that you can practice those moves next time. 

via GIPHY

Playing Your Part in Interactive Game Nights:

Most games are made to be played with other people. Taking advantage of video conference rooms to hold a game night with your favorite people can be a great way to stay connected. With the option to create a grid of all chat members, it’s a great way to create teams if your group is large enough. Record the action so that you can replay and share your favorite moments. A great app for this is Houseparty, which comes with a selection of games to play with your friends, and its split-screen capabilities keeps games fun and fast-paced for everyone. All you need to do is invite your friends.

via GIPHY

Hosting A Karaoke Night:

If you’re looking to keep your spirits up, one way to do it is by hosting a virtual happy hour, featuring your favorite karaoke songs. You may want to share one (or a few) of your favorite seasonal recipes with your friends, and then join each other for a night of belting out your favorite sing-alongs. If you want to mix it up with your mixers, try adding in some trivia about your favorite bands before you start so that you can bring your virtual karaoke night to the next level. Just make sure you don’t miss a moment of it. 

via GIPHY

Throwing A Virtual Book Brunch:

Few things are as restorative as joining up with a group to have a deep chat over a great book and delicious food. If themed brunches are your thing, you can set up the theme of your brunch to coincide with the topic of your selected reading. Connect with friends worldwide if you really want to add to the fun. It may become the highlight of your week. 

via GIPHY

When it comes to linking up online, the possibilities are endless, and they keep growing everyday. All you need is some imagination, a great idea, and the perfect tools to make sure that you don’t miss out on a single minute. Our pick? Replay Telecorder. It can record any video conferencing applications in background mode, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted connection. 

How does it work?

  1. Get your group together. You can invite your group attendees manually or just make sure everyone has a custom link to the meeting. That way you can keep them private and invite only who you want. 
  2. Start your video conferencing application. Replay Telecorder works great with Skype, Google Hangouts. Zoom, and any application with similar features.
  3. Record and save for playback later. As soon as you join the call, just hit “Record” and you’re all set. You can stop recording anytime you like. It’s really that easy. 

Getting started is easy. Get your group together, get creative, and then make sure you have the latest version of Replay Telecorder, so that you can save the best moments (or save your best moves to practice) for later. With the right tools, your house may become your favorite place to meet up with your favorite people!

The Ultimate Summer Road Trip Checklist [2019 Edition]

Looking for a way to add some life to your summer vacation? Getting a group of friends together, picking a destination, packing up your bags, and hitting the road is one of the best ways to enjoy the season before it ends. Nothing beats bonding with your favorite people quite like spending hours together in a road trip to remember. 

If your upcoming summer plans include a road trip, we’ve got the ultimate list of packing essentials, car prep tips, and ideas for recording your favorite entertainment to help you plan the best trip ever.

Pack Only the Essentials

Whether you’re just headed into the city or have a full cross-country drive ahead of you, if your main living space is your vehicle, every bit of space counts. No matter how long your road trip may be, packing only as much as you need in your carry-on or suitcase is the best way to help you save a lot of valuable space. With more space, you’ll have more room for the most essential things like snacks, drinks, games, and most importantly, legroom.

Prep a Basic Emergency Kit

Nothing ruins a trip quite like being stranded in the middle of nowhere with no basic resources. If AAA has you on hold, or if you have no cell signal, having an emergency kit prepared and easily accessible could be a lifesaver. While there are pre-made emergency backpacks that exist for purchase, you can’t be sure they will have every necessity, so we recommend DIY’ing it.

Make sure to include these basic items to be sure you’re all set:

    • Emergency food & water
    • Thermal blankets
    • Flashlight with extra batteries
    • First aid kit
    • Emergency cash
    • Roadmap
    • Car charger for your cell phone
    • Jumper cables

Plan Healthy Foods and Snacks

The fastest way to kill the positive vibe on a road trip? Getting stuck in the car while you’re feeling sick or sluggish. That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan ahead and bring healthier snacks and foods to munch on along the way. Rather than relying on fast food, jerky, chips, and other gas station snacks, having some of these essentials will keep your energy up in the best way:

Sliced vegetables like celery, bell pepper, carrots, cucumber, and broccoli are all packed with nutrients and stay fresh for a long trip.

Fresh berries and fruits like grapes, oranges, apples, bananas, peaches, nectarines, and plums are delicious, vitamin-packed snacks.

Dry items like trail mix, pita chips, dried fruit, protein bars, granola, and pretzels are all great snacks to have on you at all times.

Storable meats and cheeses are a great way to throw together a quick sandwich on the road, or just take a quick piece for some fast protein.

Pro tip: Line your cooler with insulation to keep food fresher longer, and only keep it open as long as you absolutely need to when getting something out. How you pack up your cooler each day makes a difference!

Take a Look Under the Hood

You should treat your car like your own body on a road trip. It needs occasional pampering, a little TLC, and regular check-ups for maximum performance, especially before you put it to work. When the check engine light suddenly pops on or you start feeling a rattling under the hood, it can make any pleasant road trip stressful.

To avoid this, make sure that you take your car into your local mechanic for a regular checkup a few days before taking off, along with prepping a few other things. Here are a few things you should take care of:

    • An oil change, basic tire check, and rotation if needed.
    • Making sure you have wiper fluid all filled up to the brim, and that your wipers are still functional.
    • Putting a recent copy of your insurance information and registration straight into your glovebox for easy access.
    • Cleaning the car inside and out, and making a plan for garbage disposal so things don’t get too messy.

Download the Best Entertainment

When you’re on your trip and have played all the road trip games you can think of, what could be better than turning to your favorite music, show, movie or podcast? Unfortunately for media lovers out there, WiFi isn’t exactly readily available out on the open road and data runs out quickly.

With media-recording software in the Replay Capture Suite, you can download, record, and save all types of online media to enjoy anywhere, anytime.

Record Music: In order to achieve road trip success you must have one essential thing: a playlist. With Replay Music you can easily record any music or entire playlists from Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, Apple Music, and any other online music site or service that you listen to music on – if you can stream it online, you can capture it forever! With this tool, you’ll never run out of music again. Here’s a playlist that’s full of songs to get your car singing:

Download Podcasts: Replay Radio allows you to download any podcast to listen to any time. Whether you are new to the scene, or for those who are seasoned listeners, Replay Radio makes it simple to download and archive podcasts to listen to anywhere, on any device. And there are a variety of different topics to choose from. Check out some options here

Save Movies and Shows: Replay Video Capture allows you to take any online or streaming video and save it to your own collection! After recording, you can save as just about any file format and access anytime, anywhere. You could record any sports matches for your favorite teams, a classic movie, or even the entire season of the best binge-worthy shows

Grab YouTube Videos: Want to watch your favorites on YouTube without using up all your data? No worries. Catch the videos from the most popular YouTubers, or any original YouTube original series, or even exclusive music videos on-the-go. Replay Media Catcher downloads streaming video and audio files from millions of sites, including YouTube. It allows you to save the downloads to your computer and access them at any time, without having to use your data.

Have you got your destination picked out yet? If not, grab a map, get some tape and a dart, close your eyes and throw. Now you’re almost ready… The next step? Follow this checklist and get ready for the best summer road trip ever. Make sure to download your entertainment with all the great tools in the Replay Capture Suite! Unless you don’t mind playing iSpy on the road for the next 10 hours…
