The Best Christmas Movies to Remind You of Being a Kid During the Holidays

Nowadays, the holidays can feel like a time of stress rather than a time of festivities − whether from the gift-buying rush, surviving family get-togethers, or paying off those rising bills. But once upon a time, back in those childhood days, it really was the most magical time of the year. Unfortunately, you can’t travel back in time…. But you can hit record and rewind. Here’s our favorite list of movies to watch and record throughout the holiday season.

A Charlie Brown Christmas and A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

A ruckus was created earlier in the year when it was announced that none of the Charlie Brown holiday specials would be airing on network television, after ABC pulled the plug on a 55-year streak. But where there’s a network void, there’s a streaming network ready to bridge the gap. Apple+ pledged to to fulfill Snoopy deprivation by making each holiday special available for free, even to non-subscribers, on limited days. So all the Peanuts holiday specials are at the top of our watch and record holiday movie list.

Available on: Apple+

Gremlins

Gremlins is a favorite for anyone who grew up in the 80s, cult movie loyalists and 

hipsters. But with the holiday genre so full of options, it can sometimes be lost in the crowd. When it does air, make sure you hit record, to rewatch the original horror x Christmas movie.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Gen Z-ers only seem to vaguely know who the Muppets are but for Millennials and Generation X, they were everything. Literally, they did everything from take Manhattan, live in Space, and in The Muppet Christmas Carol, recreate Dickens’ classic. It holds up, seriously. Press record and watch it again to see.

A Christmas Story

A Christmas Story should not make this list as TBS’ 24 hour tradition of airing the movie continuously makes it sort of unnecessary, yet, it still does because even with a 24 hour airing, we know opening presents, sledding, cooking holiday dinner, etc. might have you missing major scenes. And no one wants to miss their favorite from this classic, whether it’s electric sex from the leg lamp in the window, or when Ralphie finally does shoot his eye out!

Love, Actually

Ok, while Love, Actually isn’t as childlike as our other selections, it was released a full 17 years ago! For everyone who was still a teen or tween when this movie came out, it gave you high hopes for what Christmas could be like when falling in love as a grown up. Love, Actually was so universally well received, it’s now a modern classic and maybe remains the heavyweight champion in holiday rom-coms.

You’ve Got Mail

In this classic, late 90s Tom Hanks / Meg Ryan romcom, You’ve Got Mail gives us the story of two people in an online romance — AOL, anyone? — who are unaware they are also business rivals. Watch as they cross paths in reality, and share a completely different relationship over email. This movie was the third pairing of Hanks and Ryan, following Joe Versus the Volcano (1990) and Sleepless in Seattle (1993). While You’ve Got Mail isn’t an Oscar-worthy flick, it’s definitely a feel-good movie we can all appreciate!

Planes, Trains and Automobiles

John Candy and Steve Martin together on-screen? Thanksgiving movies just don’t get any better than this. In Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Candy and Martin make an unlikely pair of travel companions trying to get home for Thanksgiving. Follow along on their hilarious adventure.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving originally aired in November 1973, and actually won an Emmy award the following year! Until 2019, the special continued to be aired on prime time television on the ABC network. Now, you can catch it on Apple TV for a short period of time, or whenever suits you best on Amazon Prime. When Peppermint Patty invites herself and her friends over to Charlie Brown’s for Thanksgiving, along with Linus, Snoopy, and Woodstock in the mix, Charlie Brown attempts to host a successful Thanksgiving dinner. Will it go off without a hitch? This family-favorite will be sure to put a smile on your face.

The New World

The New World stars Colin Farrell as Captain John Smith, Q’orianka Kilcher as Pochantos and Christian Bale as John Rolfe, a British settler, bringing the previously only animated story of Pochantos to life. Captain John Smith arrives with a British expedition in Virginia in 1607, but is captured by Native Americans. His life is spared thanks to Pocahontas, the daughter of the tribe’s chief. Smith and Pocahontas fall in love, to the strong disapproval of both the Native Americans and British. As a result, Smith is sent away and reported dead. A heartbroken Pocahontas marries Rolfe, but when Smith turns up alive, she is torn between the two men.

Meet the Parents

Many of us can relate to Meet the Parents — after all, holidays are often a perfect opportunity to meet the family of a significant other. At least most of us can say that we haven’t endured the shenanigans and mishaps that Greg Focker (Ben Stiller) has to when meeting his girlfriend’s parents — starring Robert DeNiro and Blythe Danner. Focker’s first visit to Pam’s parents’ house turns out to be a complete nightmare — more than he could have ever imagined. Hoping to use the weekend as a chance to propose to his girlfriend in front of family, he only succeeds in getting on his prospective father-in-law’s bad side and almost destroys their home in the process — yikes!


With seven incredibly useful programs for Mac and Windows, you’ve got everything you need to capture and save all your favorite Thanksgiving movies — to enjoy before and after turkey dinner. And, with our free demo, you can try all seven incredible tools with no strings attached! Have we convinced you yet?

7 Halloween Movies to Stream and Record

Halloween is just a few days away. While many of us will likely be staying home to celebrate, a spooky, Halloween movie-night with the tastiest trick-or-treat candy isn’t a bad alternative. To help you get ready for the big night, we’ve compiled a list of 7 of our favorite Halloween movies to watch.

Stream your picks via Amazon Prime and record them all with Replay Media Catcher, so you can enjoy them again and again. Whether you’re a fan of classic horror, comedy or animated films, our list has got something for everyone.

Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus is a must-see, Halloween classic, starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy. The Sanderson sisters (Midler, Parker and Najimy) were executed 300 years ago for practicing dark witchcraft, but now, they’ve returned. Thanks to a combination of a spell spoken before their demise and the accidental actions of the new-kid-in-town, Max, the sisters will do whatever it takes to secure their continuing existence. The only trouble is they have just one night to do it…

Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a cult-classic that draws fans to movie theatres every Halloween to relive the time warp, again and again. Sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), end up stuck with a flat tire during a storm, leading them to discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of peculiar characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. With the help of elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”

IT

The IT movie is based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name. Both the original and 2017 remake follow seven young outcasts in Derry, Maine, who are about to face their worst nightmare — an ancient, haunting evil that emerges from the sewer every 27 years to prey on the town’s children. Pledging to band together over the course of one horrifying summer, the friends must overcome their own personal fears to defeat the murderous, bloodthirsty clown, otherwise known as Pennywise.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose

The Exorcism of Emily Rose is loosely based on the true story of Anneliese Michel, who, it is believed was possessed by demons, and underwent Catholic exorcism rites during the year leading up to her death. In the movie, Rev. Moore is prosecuted for the wrongful death of a girl believed to be demonically possessed, because he administered the church-sanctioned exorcism that ultimately killed her. Watch as prosecuting attorney Ethan Thomas fights to prove that Emily actually suffered from schizophrenia and should have been medically diagnosed, while the defense maintains Emily’s condition cannot be explained by science alone.

Beetlejuice

After their fatal car accident, the spirits of Barbara and Adam are stuck haunting their country residence, unable to leave the house. When the unbearable Deetzes (Catherine O’Hara and Jeffrey Jones), and their teen daughter (Winona Ryder) buy the home, the Maitlands unsuccessfully attempt to scare them away. Instead, their efforts attract Beetlejuice (Michael Keaton), a rowdy spirit whose “help” quickly spells trouble for the Maitlands and Lydia.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

If you’re looking for a family-friendly Halloween movie, look no further than this Tim Burton animated classic. The Nightmare Before Christmas follows the adventures of Jack Skellington, Halloweentown’s beloved pumpkin king. Bored with the same annual routine of frightening people in the “real world,” Jack accidentally stumbles on Christmastown — a stark contrast to Halloweentown. Bright colors and warm spirits, Jack gets a new lease on life, and plots to bring Christmas under his control by kidnapping Santa Claus and taking over the job. Jack soon discovers though, that even the best-laid plans don’t always turn out…

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

This 2003 remake of the horror classic follows a group of young travelers who come across an isolated rural home while driving through Texas on their way back from Mexico. Unfortunately for them, the dilapidated house is actually the residence of a family of twisted backwoods killers, most notably a merciless, masked man known as Leatherface, who begins to hunt the stranded youths down. Whether any of the friends will survive their nightmare is yet to be determined…


With this frightening, ghoulish and unmissable lineup of movies, your Halloween night-in is shaping up.

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. 

With the Replay Capture Suite, you get access to seven incredible programs in one place, and the ability to record any online video of your choosing. Replay Capture Suite gives you the tools to record virtually any format streaming online, and on any device. To get the most out of our software, make sure that you’ve downloaded the most recent copy, which will let you capture and download video with ease, without needing to worry about the latest developments in the online video streaming ecosystem — we take care of that for you!

How to Create a Montage of Your Favorite Travel Videos

Many of us have a bucket list of places that we’d like to visit in the future. Little by little, when we get the chance to travel, we can cross off a dream destination on that list. While unrestricted international travel is not a possibility currently, looking back on the video footage we’ve captured during past trips can give us something to look forward to for future travels. 

If you’ve ever considered putting your video footage together in a more creative way, a video montage is a great option — it allows you to create a digital entry in your virtual book of memories that can be easily shared with others. 

But, how to get started with the process? Below you’ll find a few of our tips and tricks for putting together a professional-quality travel video montage in no time!

1. Place all of your video footage in one convenient location

Devoting time to placing all of your video footage in one well-organized place will help you to work more efficiently as you move through the project. Create a designated project folder on your desktop — or a preferred location on your computer that is easily accessible  — where you can work from. Move all the video files that you wish to work with here.

Next, make sure that the title of each video is descriptive enough that you know, without needing to open and view the file each time, what the clip includes. If at this point you have a general idea of the sequence that you would like to arrange the videos in, you can also include a number in the video title.

2. Find online video content to complement your own

Once you have moved and organized your video files into the project folder, you may notice that some of these videos end abruptly or that the quality varies from video to video. If that’s the case, YouTube is a great place to find “filler” content, or content that will complement your own. There you will find countless travel videos differing in duration, style and language — you’re bound to find something that will fit right in with your own footage!

To add these videos to your project folder, look no further than Replay Media Catcher, the fastest and most powerful online media recorder of its kind. With the program installed, all you have to do is play an online YouTube video and a copy is downloaded to your computer. It’s that simple!

3. Compile and edit your video montage like a pro

Finally, once you have all of the files you need — from both your personal collection and online — you can get started on the fun part: getting your hands dirty and creating the montage itself! With Replay Media Splitter, the task is as easy as it gets and you get professional-quality edited videos in no time — no overpriced film editing software needed. 

With Replay Media Splitter you can extract or remove portions of audio and video files. With a visual display, and an easy way to include and exclude segments of your media, you’ll be slicing and dicing video and audio files in minutes.

Here’s a quick summary of the editing process to follow:

  1. Load one or more media files into the Media Library to use in your project.
  2. Add Markers to split your media into Segments.
  3. Include or exclude segments.
  4. Output the resulting file.

It really is that straightforward. For more information, our user guide is here to help you through the process.


Get started on your travel video montage project today, and breathe new life into your video content to enjoy time and time again, and share with friends and family. Make sure you get the latest versions of Replay Media Catcher and Replay Media Splitter and create your professional-quality travel video montage in just a few easy steps.

More Ways to Stay Connected With Facebook

Messenger Rooms by Facebook

In response to the soaring usage of video tools, Facebook recently launched a slew of new video messaging and livestreaming features across its platforms. The move is in line with the social media giant’s growth strategy, which seeks to boost engagement and create cross-company integration across the Facebook platform. For its users though, Facebook’s new Room group video chat feature allows for greater connectivity in a time when video, as a means of staying in touch, is greatly valued — even more so than ever before.

In this way, Facebook has positioned itself as a first choice offering for those looking to stay in touch with family and friends, in addition to users needing a reliable and accessible video conferencing offering.

Facebook is also working to integrate the Rooms feature into its other platforms including WhatsApp, Instagram and Portal. At present, Messenger Rooms also builds on Facebook’s efforts to build out features that emphasize community. In particular, with “open hangouts” if a Facebook group or event has a video chat happening, other users within the group will be able to see the chat within their News Feed, allowing them to join in the call if they wish. Inspired by the likes of Houseparty, open hangouts are an easy and no-pressure way to stay connected.

Messenger Rooms’ Screen by Facebook.

With Messenger Rooms, Facebook is quickly becoming a one-stop shop for many users, offering an impressive and seemingly ever-growing suite of features for your social media, community and now, video conferencing needs. Businesses large and small can take advantage of the Rooms feature; for many, particularly where cost is a consideration and paid premium offerings like Zoom don’t fit the budget, Facebook is a logical choice. Likewise, for users looking for an easier way to connect with family and friends, without having to teach grandma and grandpa how to work the latest piece of software, Messenger Rooms simply fits the bill.

With the latest video conferencing offering in your quarantine toolbelt, you’ll want to pair that with a tool that will allow you to record important meetings and capture memories being made with family and friends. With Replay Video Capture, you can have peace of mind that you’ll be able to watch and capture all these important moments.

Not sure how to get started with Replay Video Capture? Not to worry: with our handy how-to guide, it’s easy to get started with capturing your professional and personal video calls. Be sure to download the latest version of Replay Video Capture so you won’t miss out!

Popular Movies & Shows Leaving Netflix this Summer

Netflix has built a pretty great reputation for putting out quality shows, and hosting a wide range of content that you can’t find anywhere else. It’s also just as famous for cycling out fan favorites, in order to make room for new hits in their catalog. So what’s a viewer to do? By now, you know it’s pretty key to always record your Netflix faves so that you can watch them over and over, or even just watch them on your own time!

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the most popular movies and shows that are leaving Netflix this summer. With Replay Video Capture in your toolkit, you can keep all your favorites, without worrying about losing them forever. Even if watching Christmas movies in July is your thing, Replay Video Capture has you in good hands.

What are some of the movies that are making their exit from Netflix this summer? Take a look at our list, make sure to save your favorites!

Wedding Crashers (2005)

via GIPHY

Just in time for wedding season, this summer smash hit is loaded with some of your favorite comic giants. Before Bradley Cooper’s turn in “A Star is Born”, he was Luke Wilson’s douchey rival in this comedy classic for the ages. Vince Vaughn and Wilson are a hilarious duo that make a tradition of crashing weddings to have fun, meet women, and generally have a smashing great time. Their epic season takes a turn as they come face-to-face with Crashers Rule #22: “You have a wedding and a reception to seal the deal. Period. No overtime.” Will they uphold their reputation as the heart of the party? Or will they follow their hearts?

The Terminator (1984)

via GIPHY

In this multi-sequelled sci-fi hit, a cyborg assassin from the year 2029 is sent back to 1984 to kill the woman whose son will become the future savior of mankind. Humankind’s ultimate enemy? The cyborgs. In an effort to stop the assassination, soldier Kyle Reece is sent back in time to pursue the cyborg, and carry out one mission: Save Sarah Connor, by any means necessary. Catch this classic that spawned the epic quote “I’ll be back”, and launched Arnold Schwarzenegger into superstardom.

Pan’s Labyrinth (2006)

via GIPHY

In this magical and highly awarded film, director Alfonso Cuarón takes us into the world of Ofelia, a young girl living through the Spanish Civil War. Her life is uprooted after the death of her father, and her mother’s subsequent marriage to a cruel military officer. The film manages to cross over between the mysterious creatures of the labyrinth and the practical world in which she lives. The result is a visually stunning and enthralling movie that everyone will love.

The Matrix Trilogy: The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), Matrix Revolutions (2003)

via GIPHY

This mind-bender has become a modern classic for its use of special effects and its epic and allegorical story. In the first installment, we are introduced to Neo, a young man going through the motions of his unremarkable life, when he becomes embroiled in a mind-expanding adventure that has us all questioning the meaning of life as we know it.  Capture each part of the trilogy and save it to watch for when you have time to get lost in its many layers.

Cool Hand Luke (1967)

via GIPHY

No one does cool better than Paul Newman. Catch him in this classic that solidified him as an icon of American cinema. This movie introduces us to Luke, an ex-soldier who is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison. What makes this psychological prison drama a classic is Luke’s refusal to submit to an arbitrary system of power and punishment, and it asks the viewer to do the same.

Dumb and Dumber (1994)

5. Keep Your Favorites Forever, Even After They Are Long Gone

Netflix isn’t just movies. It’s actually known for some of it’s incredible original shows. But just because you love it and want to keep watching it for years to come doesn’t mean that it will stay around.

But if you have a favorite that gets cancelled, where does that leave you? Fortunately, with Replay Video Capture, you won’t get stuck with losing your favorite shows. Keep your favorite storylines alive for good by downloading and saving your favorites.
