Game On! Your NFL Game Day Tailgate Party Checklist

NFL season is here. The game we’ve all been waiting for all year is finally making its season debut this week.

And if you are like most of us, you’ve been doing everything you can to get prepped for the best matchups of the season.

Can Cleveland deliver on the pre-season hype with star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. as their newest addition?  And will the Patriots be able to hold onto the top spot of the AFC East this year? 

With all that excitement, there’s no better way to kickoff the season than with an epic tailgate party! We can’t think of a better way to cap off this huge weekend than getting your friends together and watching the most anticipated event of the fall! And while everyone will undoubtedly be itching to catch the game that has their favorite teams facing off, what about the other games running? There’s no doubt that you don’t want to miss any of the games that are playing (and probably streaming) concurrently. 

Luckily, we’re here to help you get ready for the season, with a checklist of everything you’ll need to watch the first games of the season with your friends in style.  And those games you want to catch up on this week after the party? Yeah, we’ve got you covered there, too. 

Fire up the grill, tune into ESPN.com,  hit record on the latest version of Replay Media Capture, and get ready to rock and roll this NFL season. 

Have you got everything you need?

A Great Tailgate Party Spread

You know a party really isn’t a party without great food and drinks. Dig through your best recipes and put together a great collection of party food and appetizers for all your tailgate party guests. (Hint: We really love the Argentinian skewers, but there are so many great alternatives for any food preferences…)

Cozy Cover-Ups to Keep Warm

One of the coolest things about tailgating is enjoying the first traces of Fall outside with your friends, often over a cooler of drinks, enjoying the heat from the grill.  Whether you choose to watch in your home or in the stadium or anywhere else… Fall is nearly here, and you don’t want to get stuck when the breeze hits without something to wrap up in. 

Make sure you’re not caught in the cold without:

  • Blankets
  • Sweaters (even better if they are sporting your favorite team!)
  • Cover-ups 

No judgement here… Even if they look a little silly, the warmer the better! 

Party Essentials & Utilities

It’s probably not the most  fun part of the party to think about, but making sure you’ve got your party essentials in place is crucial. What’s most likely the least fun part of party planning may be your biggest lifesaver. Thinking ahead will save you so much time (and cleanup) in the future. What do you need?

  • Food essentials: Utensils, cups, plates and napkins are a great start
  • Bags of all sizes: You’ll need these for easy cleanup… Big ones to collect trash, and small ones to save leftover food. 
  • Ice, ice, baby: It goes without saying: you want to make sure you’ve got what you need to keep food fresh and drinks cold. 

For the environmentally conscious, there are also plenty of sustainable and biodegradable options so you don’t create a huge carbon footprint to have a great tailgate. 

An Incredible Playlist 

While you wait for the game to start, or even if you want to get down during the half, having a killer playlist is half the fun. We especially love these jams to get hyped for the big game, but there are so many more to suit the vibe of any party! 

Games, Games, and More Games

While we are on the subject: some of the best parties are the ones where everyone can indulge their playful sides… That’s right, it’s so key for your party crew  to be able to stretch their legs, stretch their brains and have a bit of fun between halves or while they wait. Or, if you’re feeling creative, you could even build your gameplay into the football game… For every touchdown, guests can do a dance, complete a dare, or anything else you can invent. The important thing here is to keep it fun! 

Some of our favorites? Outscord has a great compilation of DIY games that are great for almost any party!

And finally…

Your Own Playlist of the Best Games Streaming Online

Just because you are having a blast at your tailgate party doesn’t mean you have to miss any of the action from your other favorite teams while you are playing cornhole in the fresh fall air! With Replay Media Capture, you’ve got a great way to capture all streaming games so you are not missing a single event. Don’t miss the chance to recap the plays that happened while you were playing Flipcup or having a cookout while your favorite team did the touchdown dance. You can catch every single game online with Replay Media Capture and make sure that you can keep up with friends from work who didn’t make it to your tailgate shindig! 

So are you game ready? Get Replay Media Capture or get the latest update so you are all set for this weekend’s biggest match-ups, and for the entire season ahead!

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…

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!

Check out the video to learn more!

Fortunately, you won’t have to park in front of your screen just to make sure you don’t miss your favorite matches, especially as the tournament heats up…

Each episode focuses on themes surrounding important life lessons associated with cultural differences, gratitude, war, and acts of service.

A warning for sensitive viewers at home: In the episode “Gift of Sight”, the filmmakers travel to the Killing Fields of Cambodia, and discuss some heavy themes that might be difficult for more sensitive viewers to watch.

Luckily, Replay Video Catcher makes it possible to stay on top of the best documentaries so it’s easy for everyone to watch and enjoy their favorites, and re-watch the parts that will have them talking for days.
