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.

10 Upcoming & Not to Be Missed Livestreams and Virtual Concerts

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!

Tips: How To Build A Successful YouTube Channel

With a reported 2 billion users worldwide, there’s no surprise that YouTube is one of the hottest spots to build a brand, share content, and make some serious cash. But with so many content creators out there, how can you make your YouTube channel stand out from the crowd? While there’s no magic formula to success, there are plenty of simple tips and tricks you can employ to set yourself up for a thriving YouTube channel. Read on to find out more…

  1. If you’re starting out from scratch, think about what you want to do with your channel. Firstly, who are you going to target? How are you going to appeal to them? The more targeted your content is, the more it will speak to these viewers. Then, consider what type of content you are going to be posting… Will your videos include tutorials, product reviews, or vlogs of your day-to-day life? How can you engage your viewers − are you going to be educating them, or entertaining them? Answering all of these questions will be your first step to building a successful channel. 
  1. Establish your personal brand. All great brands have an identity, so your YouTube channel will need one too. When considering your visuals and audio, what style do you want your channel to adopt? What topics do you want to focus on? No matter what you do, don’t forget to convey your personality. There is only one of you in the world, so make your channel stand out by being yourself, whether that’s opening up in a personal vlog, or sharing a bit of who you are in a tutorial or product demo. 
  1. Work hard to develop quality content. Think about investing in some dedicated equipment such as lights, a quality camera or microphone. Once you’re up and running, produce effective videos by keeping them as short and sweet as possible. We’re living in the attention economy, where creators and brands are competing fiercely for audiences’ attention. It’s crucial that you keep your videos direct so that your viewers don’t click away. Keep opening credits and titles short, and get to the main section of your video as quickly as you can. If you tend to pause or hesitate as you speak, you can edit out these distractions with a handy tool like Replay Media Splitter. While longer videos will improve your watch time − which will boost your content in the algorithm − don’t be tempted to create filler content. Make sure that every second is providing value to the person watching. 
  1. Let your viewers know what to expect. Be consistent in your subject matter, and consistent in the timing and frequency of new posts. Posting familiar content on a regular basis like this will help you to build up your audience. If sticking to a schedule sounds challenging, try to build up a backlog of content so that you’ll always have something to post, even when life outside of YouTube gets in the way. Finally, think about developing your videos as part of a series to get viewers hooked on your content, and waiting eagerly for the next instalment. 
  1. Remember − “Like, subscribe and share!” Promotion is key. At the end of your video, add links to your other popular videos, and remind the viewer to subscribe to your channel and opt-in to notifications. Ask them to like the video and comment too − this engagement will work wonders for your position in the ranks. To go the extra mile, collaborate with other YouTubers by featuring in their videos, or inviting them to appear in yours. With this, you can cross-promote and share followers between you. It’s a win-win. 
  1. Check out your analytics. From your Creator Studio, you can compare the performance of your videos and work out which is resonating best with your audience. To give your videos a boost, try employing SEO techniques, such as by including keywords in your video titles and writing detailed descriptions. While this can be a little more time-consuming, it’s definitely worth your while. 

Of course, it goes without saying that the success of your YouTube channel will also rely on the quality of the video itself. When you need to edit your videos to be the best they can be, look no further than Replay Capture Suite for everything you need to make stunning, engaging content.


With seven incredibly useful programs for Mac and Windows, you’ve got everything you need to split and join files, encrypt and protect your work, download video and audio, record your screen and much, much more.

Cornbread and chili together? Sounds like a match made in heaven. This recipe combines everything we love about veggie chili — the variety of beans and vegetables that go into it, especially — by topping it off with some classic cornbread! This recipe is oh-so-hearty but we can bet you’ll still be wanting seconds.

Cheddar Corn Fritters

There’s no denying these cheddar corn fritters are an indulgence — heaps of cheddar and spoonfuls of corn combine to create the perfect treat. Fry them on the pan until crispy and top them off with a helping of sour cream.

Caramel Apple Crumble Cheesecake

Caramel and apple is another winning combination that we love for the fall season. So, why not try something new like this caramel apple crumble cheesecake. It takes everything we love about apple crumble and combines it with a rich cheesecake base.

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

The thought of baking with yeast may intimidate you, but we promise this recipe will guide you every step of the way.

Our Top 3 Most Memorable NBA Games from the Start of the 2019-20 Season

On June 4, the NBA Board of Governors approved a competitive format to restart the 2019-20 season with 22 teams ready to return to play, with a tentative start date of Friday, July 31. While this is one of many formal steps required to resume the season, it looks like we’re on track to get our NBA basketball fix shortly!

In the meantime, the NBA is working to finalize its comprehensive season start plan, alongside the National Basketball Players Association. Both organizations are working and consulting closely with infectious disease specialists, health experts and government officials to ensure the health and safety of players and spectators alike. 

The aim is to establish a rigorous program to prevent and mitigate the risk related to COVID-19, including a regular testing protocol and stringent safety practices. The season restart also relies heavily on an agreement with The Walt Disney Company to use the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, which would serve as a campus for all season games, practices and housing for the rest of the season.

Until July 31st rolls around, now is as good of a time as ever to dust off your copy of Replay Video Capture so that you’re ready to save all of your favorite games — you’ll never go hungry for basketball again! And, if you haven’t yet tried Replay Video Capture, get your copy now and you’ll be making production quality video recordings of the most memorable NBA moments in just a few clicks. 

In the meantime, as NBA fans around the world await the restart of the 2019-20 season, we’re sharing our most memorable highlights from three noteworthy games from the start of the 2019-20 season to get you hyped up for what’s to come this summer.

Philadelphia 76ers vs Toronto Raptors – January 22, 2020

The 76ers arrived in Toronto with a two-game winning streak while on the road. Philadelphia’s Josh Richardson would end up straining his hamstring early in the first quarter, unable to return to the court later on. Though the two teams were tied at half-time, it was the Raptors who came out on top with a 22-point lead over the 76ers, finishing with a final score of 107-95, with Vanleet leading the Raptors in points at 22, sinking an impressive six three-pointers out of 7 attempts.

Los Angeles Lakers vs Milwaukee Bucks – March 6, 2020

When the top teams from each of their respective conferences show up to the court, you know it’s going to be an exciting game. What could be more telling of that than Jay-Z’s looks of disbelief and delight in response to the Lakers’ performance, from where he sat courtside? Don’t be fooled though — the Bucks put up an impressive fight, and the teams were tied at 38 points at the half. In the end, Lebron James was unstoppable and completely dominated the game, coming out on top with 38 points and a whopping 8 assists!

Oklahoma City Thunder vs Los Angeles Clippers – November 18, 2019

Kawhi Lenoard’s absence on the court was very apparent during the Clippers’ matchup with Oklahoma City Thunder. Through most of the game, it seemed like the Clippers’ offense wasn’t doing much, but they tightened up on defense and squeaked by with a small win over the Thunder, whose roster includes a couple of former teammates.  Paul George succeeded in sinking a 3-pointer against his former team with just 25 seconds left in the fourth quarter, lifting Los Angeles over Oklahoma City with a very close 90-88 game.


Want to make sure you never go months without NBA action again? With Replay Video Capture, you can have peace of mind that you’ll be able to watch and capture all of your favorite moments. With production quality recordings at your fingertips in just a few easy steps, you’ll want to watch them over and over again.

The Yearly Top 10: Most Watched YouTube Videos of 2019

Every year, we get excited to review the most popular YouTube videos of the past year.

The year 2019 was no different. It’s pretty fascinating how much things change, and yet… how much they stay the same? So what was everyone watching this year?

Before we break into our countdown, it’s worth noting that YouTube is the second most popular social media outlet in the world. And with the huge range of user-generated content that gets uploaded to the video platform every minute, it’s safe to say that billions of viewers worldwide are tuning in.

But which videos captured the largest audiences worldwide in 2019? According to Statista, YouTube viewers were most interested in searching for music! With a few honorable mentions from the kids, it turns out that this year’s list was dominated by the music that got people’s feet moving. And it wasn’t just the most popular music videos of the year that made the list, but also some of the most popular ones of the decade proved to last as favorites among viewers. 

Cases in point?

  1. “Roar” – Katy Perry

In the kickoff to our countdown, Katy Perry’s power anthem is back this year to get people through a workout, a job interview, or even just the morning shower motivation everyone needs to start off the week. Or decade.

  1. “Sugar” – Maroon 5

Would you want Maroon 5 to crash your wedding? If you were one of the lucky couples in Maroon 5’s 2015 video for “Sugar”, it may be the perfect compliment to the happiest day of your life. At 3 billion views in 2019, many viewers wanted to catch a glimpse of the action, accompanied by this catchy tune

  1. “Sorry” – Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber is back at it. Or at least viewers can’t get enough of this megahit by this pop star. In the song that makes listeners hopeful that they, too, can get another chance, nearly three-and-a-half billion views tells us that it’s never too late.   

  1. “Gangnam Style (강남스타일) M/V” – PSY

It’s no surprise to anyone at this point that K-Pop is here to stay. But what was one of the first Korean pop hits that reached western shores, solidifying its place on the mainstream music charts? 2012’s ultra popular hit “Gangnam Style”.

  1. “Uptown Funk” – Mark Ronson feat. Bruno Mars

In a party anthem for the ages, “Uptown Funk” has made it to the Top 10 this year, with 3.7 billion views. Don’t believe us? Just watch. 

  1. “Baby Shark” – Pinkfong’s Kids’ Songs & Stories

You heard it here first. We kid. If you have been anywhere near children in 2019, you have probably heard the uber-popular “Baby Shark” playing somewhere near you. 

  1. Masha and the Bear: Recipe for Disaster

Here’s a fun fact: Not only was this episode of the Russian animated series in the top 10 list of YouTube videos viewed last year, but it was actually the 5th most viewed YouTube video of all time. Never underestimate the viewing power of children when they find a favorite video to watch on repeat. 

  1. “See You Again” – Wiz Khalifa feat. Charlie Puth

In a glorious tribute to the late Paul Walker, this song was featured in “Furious 7”, Walker’s last film with the hit “Fast & Furious” franchise. The popularity of the tribute has persisted, as it’s made its way to this year’s most watched list, with 4.3 billion views. 

  1. “Shape of You” – Ed Sheeran

It’s hard not to listen to this song on repeat. And if you feel that way, you are not alone. With over 4.5 billion views, it seems like viewers worldwide are happy to sing, dance, repeat. 

  1. “Despacito” – Luis Fonsi feat. Daddy Yankee

It’s still a fan favorite. In arguably one of the most popular songs of the last decade, this springtime banger has made its way onto the Top 10 list for the second year in a row, this time grabbing the top spot with over 6 billion views. 

From viral songs, to inescapable kids tunes, with a must-watch viral episode thrown in, 2019 showed us the power of people tuning into YouTube in record numbers.

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!
