Today was a big day for streaming media. There was so much to watch and enjoy streaming live online. Just before President Obama was sworn in I found myself in a place without cable TV – but no worries I had my laptop.
And thanks to Replay Media Catcher I had the ability to download uStream video of the inauguration.
It was easy. You can use Replay Media Catcher to download USTREAM Video the same way you would download video from any other site – just open Replay Media Catcher, click on “start monitoring” and then go to uSTREAM and start playing the video you want to capture. Replay Media Catcher will start downloading the stream as soon as it starts playing. You can watch your progress right in the Replay Media Catcher user interface.
When capturing the live streams on USTREAM you need to remember to stop Replay Media Catcher when you have downloaded the portion of the video you want, as live streams don’t have an ending the same way a recorded show does. Once I had downloaded the part of the Inaugural I was looking for I just right clicked on the recorded file in the Replay Media Catcher user interface and clicked on “cancel”. The recording stopped and I was able to play it back beautifully with my FLV player.
Hope you had a great day! Happy Monday, Happy Martin Luther King Day, Happy Inauguration and Happy Downloading.
