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:
- Load one or more media files into the Media Library to use in your project.
- Add Markers to split your media into Segments.
- Include or exclude segments.
- 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.
