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.
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.

As more of us are being called upon to #stayathome, the more creative people are getting about reshaping their daily lives online.
It’s more important than ever to stay connected, and nowadays there are hundreds of ways to do it. Whether we are looking to connect professionally, personally, or purely for social reasons, staying at home is still a great opportunity for people to meet and get together.
To do so, people around the world are turning to video chat giants like Zoom, Google Hangouts and Skype among others, making sure that they are able to not only get in touch with groups of people, but also to do it in a variety of ways. With Replay Telecorder, you can be sure to record your virtual events so that you can always playback your favorite moments.
What are some of the best opportunities to get together?
Connecting Remotely with Your Work Team:
If you work from home, then connecting with your team is a must. From creating a supportive environment in your home office, to managing essential planning meetings, connecting is crucial. One of the most effective ways that remote teams stay connected is to make sure to set up regular times to meet and connect virtually. With Google Hangouts, Zoom and Skype, your meetings can accommodate teams of any size. Make sure that you keep track of important information by keeping a recording of your virtual meetings.
You’d be amazed at the variety of fitness classes that are being offered online. From free fitness routines that you can find on YouTube, to the fitness class offerings that are opening up online, there is no reason to fall off of your fitness routine. But if you are like most, then it’s likely that having a fitness buddy (or a group of them) is your best motivator. Cue up your favorite online workouts, and then hop in a Hangout with your favorite workout partners to keep those endorphins pumping! Don’t forget to record your workout, so that you can practice those moves next time.
Most games are made to be played with other people. Taking advantage of video conference rooms to hold a game night with your favorite people can be a great way to stay connected. With the option to create a grid of all chat members, it’s a great way to create teams if your group is large enough. Record the action so that you can replay and share your favorite moments. A great app for this is Houseparty, which comes with a selection of games to play with your friends, and its split-screen capabilities keeps games fun and fast-paced for everyone. All you need to do is invite your friends.
If you’re looking to keep your spirits up, one way to do it is by hosting a virtual happy hour, featuring your favorite karaoke songs. You may want to share one (or a few) of your favorite seasonal recipes with your friends, and then join each other for a night of belting out your favorite sing-alongs. If you want to mix it up with your mixers, try adding in some trivia about your favorite bands before you start so that you can bring your virtual karaoke night to the next level. Just make sure you don’t miss a moment of it.
Few things are as restorative as joining up with a group to have a deep chat over a great book and delicious food. If themed brunches are your thing, you can set up the theme of your brunch to coincide with the topic of your selected reading. Connect with friends worldwide if you really want to add to the fun. It may become the highlight of your week.
When it comes to linking up online, the possibilities are endless, and they keep growing everyday. All you need is some imagination, a great idea, and the perfect tools to make sure that you don’t miss out on a single minute. Our pick? Replay Telecorder. It can record any video conferencing applications in background mode, so you can enjoy an uninterrupted connection.
How does it work?
Get your group together. You can invite your group attendees manually or just make sure everyone has a custom link to the meeting. That way you can keep them private and invite only who you want.
Start your video conferencing application. Replay Telecorder works great with Skype, Google Hangouts. Zoom, and any application with similar features.
Record and save for playback later. As soon as you join the call, just hit “Record” and you’re all set. You can stop recording anytime you like. It’s really that easy.
Getting started is easy. Get your group together, get creative, and then make sure you have the latest version of Replay Telecorder, so that you can save the best moments (or save your best moves to practice) for later. With the right tools, your house may become your favorite place to meet up with your favorite people!

A mob crime classic directed by Martin Scorsese in the early 1990’s, GoodFellas is an adaptation of the 1985 non-fiction book “Wiseguy” by Nicholas Pileggi, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Scorsese. The movie depicts the rise and fall of mob associate Henry Hill and his friends and family from 1955 to 1980.

“Self Made” stars Academy Award Winner, Octavia Spencer, in the untold, true story of black hair care pioneer and entrepreneur Madam C. J. Walker. The series highlights how she overcame post-slavery racial and gender biases, rivalries and personal betrayals, tumultuous marriages and family issues to eventually become America’s first black, self-made female millionaire.

“Unorthodox” is the story of a young ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman who leaves her arranged marriage and religious community in New York to start a new life abroad in Berlin.

These days, it seems like everyone is using a VPN. And while there are numerous useful things that a VPN can do, it’s a tool many people, including those who could really benefit from using one, assume has a steep learning curve and thus, requires significant effort to learn how to use. In reality, using a VPN is fairly straightforward and potential users have no reason to be intimidated by getting started with one.
With that said, what does a VPN do? And what makes it useful overall?
A VPN, for the uninitiated, is a Virtual Private Network, which acts as an added layer of security for anything you are trying to search or send online. Essentially, a VPN allows you to create a secure connection online, and routes your device’s internet connection through the VPN’s private server as opposed to your internet service provider (ISP). This way, when your data is transmitted to the internet, it comes from the VPN rather than your computer.
Nowadays, reasons to use a VPN are multiplying faster than ever, and regular VPN use has become commonplace. They are a useful tool for businesses, as well as for general users, especially because most computer operating systems are now fully able to support their use.
Also, VPNs can be used by just about anyone. So if you haven’t gotten one, take a look at some of our top reasons to get your hands on one!
A VPN can:
Seriously Speed Up Slow Internet
Is your internet speed lagging? If so, there’s a good chance that you’re maxing out your ISP-provided bandwidth. This can create major slowdowns when trying to download files or incomplete downloads. Using a VPN addresses high bandwidth usage by relying on your VPN’s server rather than that of your ISP.
Keep Data Secure While Connecting on Public WiFi
With more users than ever opting to work remotely when and where possible, it is far more common to take work offsite or work from a mobile office. This is an attractive option for people seeking flexibility in their work environment and schedule. And while this is a great opportunity for mobile workers, it’s important to stay mindful that if you are not up to date on the latest security updates, you are much more vulnerable to data leaks and cyber attacks. With a VPN, your shared data is automatically more secure, especially when connecting over public networks.
Get Around Geo Blocking
Since we are on the subject of mobile internet use, if you ever find yourself traveling worldwide, VPNs are ideal for accessing content basically anywhere else in the world. It’s a great way to unlock the capabilities of watching your favorite streams that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to access due to geographical restrictions, and even lets you discover new ones while on the go.
Protect Sensitive Online Transactions
With more and more banking options moving to online platforms, it’s more crucial now than ever to create opportunities to secure your money, no matter the currency.
Finally, one of our biggest reasons to use a VPN is that there really isn’t any other option out there when wanting to ensure your utmost privacy online. Using a VPN can take internet security a step beyond simply browsing in “Incognito” mode. Making sure that you have a VPN in place encrypts your web crawling data so that your location, IP address and even more sensitive personal information is safe from leaks, hackers, and data-mining entities.
Using a VPN helps keep your personal information safe and your data secure, no matter what your needs are, or where you are in the world. Moreover, it massively expands your search range so that you aren’t limited by your location alone. With a VPN you are able to finally have internet freedom again, whether you want to watch and record your favorite streams online, complete a transaction, or so much more.
If you haven’t gotten one yet, what are you waiting for?
The 92nd Academy Awards have come and gone, and with them, brought an offering of some incredible movies from 2019.
From epic speeches, to history-making wins, it was a cinematic year not to be missed. And while there was a host of excellent nominees for “Best Picture”, as always, only one could take home the golden statue.
Whether you saw those movies in theaters, or if you managed to catch them on Netflix, there were quite a few strong contenders this year in the “Best Picture” category, and the time has finally come to recognize our favorites from this Oscar season.
If you haven’t had the chance to catch all of the nominees, we’ve got you covered. We’ve put together a list of all the Best Picture nominees, so you can capture them, watch them and be ready to discuss the highlights with your friends in the Oscars’ aftermath. With Replay Video Capture, you won’t have to miss out on any of the year’s best movies.
Cheesy teleprompter intro aside, the nominees for Best Picture are…
In this heart-wrenching look at separation and divorce, an all-star cast leads this incredible and moving story of a family trying to find a path forward while at the same time, confronting the reality that their marriage is over. With Scarlet Johansson and Adam Driver nominated for Best Actress and Best Actor, respectively, you can expect A Marriage Storyto pull at your heartstrings and raise thought-provoking discussions about marriage and divorce..
In this coming-of-age film directed by Taika Waititi, a young boy struggles to find his voice in Nazi Germany. Jojo, the titular character, is faced with an internal conflict as he tries to find his place as a cadet in the Hitler Youth organization, after learning that his mother is harboring a young Jewish girl in their attic. What makes this satirical coming-of-age comedy unique is Jojo’s imaginary friend who bears witness to Jojo’s life lessons through it all — Adolf Hitler himself.
In one of the most brilliant and disturbing films of the last year, Todd Phillips’ Jokeris a study of the motivations that ultimately lead the titular character, Arthur Fleck, into villainy. Bleek and spellbinding, the movie takes a voyage into the well-known Batman story and flips it inside out. Joaquin Phoenix’s performance earns him a well-deserved Oscar in this never-before-told origin story of Joker that is not for the faint of heart.
In a wartime epic that cleaned up at the Golden Globes, Sam Mendes’ 1917 is a tale of bravery and sacrifice that is rumored to have been inspired by war tales of the director’s own grandfather. Not just simply another depiction of World War I, the film follows two British soldiers who receive time-sensitive and seemingly impossible orders. They must cross into enemy territory in order to deliver a message that could potentially save the countless lives of their fellow comrades, including the brother of one of the soldiers. If not for the story, 1917 is worth watching for the cinematography alone, as it was shot unconventionally with a series of continuous, uncut shots that were then uniquely connected to give the feeling of one long take.
Ford v Ferrari is the incredible true-life story between two friends, American automotive designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and former British race car driver, Ken Miles (Christian Bale), who take on Ford’s rival Enzo Ferrari with their revolutionary vehicle in the race of their lives at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966. The film is a perfect mix of sport, humor and drama for racing enthusiasts and not only.
In Martin Scorsese’s turn at producing and directing a Netflix original, we get a crime drama to end all crime dramas. Starring Robert DeNiro (Frank Sheeran), Joe Pesci (Russell Bufalino) and Al Pacino (Jimmy Hoffa), the movie is an epic story of organized crime in post-war America as told through the eyes of Sheeran, a World War II veteran. The Irishman chronicles the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, while offering an enlightening journey through the hidden world of organized crime.
Bong Joon-ho’s Parasitewas a mover and shaker at this year’s Academy Awards; the film took home the most awards, including Best Picture, making it the first time ever that a foreign language film has won the category. Offering dark humor, drama and countless edge-of-your-seat moments, the film is a depiction of greed and class discrimination, and how this unfortunate societal reality threatens the newly formed relationship between the privileged Park family and that of the poor Kims.
Quentin Tarantino’s controversial ninth film stars, most notably, Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role of Hollywood actor Rick Dalton, Brad Pitt as Cliff Booth, Dalton’s best friend and stuntman, and Margot Robbie as Sharon Tate. The film follows Dalton and Booth as they struggle to stay relevant and active in the Hollywood scene and as a surprise, touches on the unfortunate story of the Charles Manson cult and the murder of Sharon Tate. For those who have missed a good story with the classic gory twist of Tarantino, topped off with a star-studded cast: this one’s for you.
The movie Little Women is based on the beautiful tale of four sisters in the post-Civil War era in the United States, penned by Louisa May Alcott. The March sisters include Jo, Amy, Meg and Beth. Jo is a writer living in New York. Amy studies painting in Paris and has a fortuitous meeting with a childhood crush who proposed to her sister Jo but was ultimately turned down. Meg is married, while Beth develops a critical illness that brings the family together again.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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”.
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.
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.
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.

We are deep into the spin of the new year, and while everyone is making their resolutions, we thought we’d team up with our friends at Easy Duplicate Finder to put together a little list to help you get into the groove of the new year, and make sure that 2020 is your most productive year yet!
Ready to start fresh?
1. Update Your Contact Lists!
We all want to be better friends and colleagues in the year ahead, and that’s nearly impossible if we aren’t getting in contact with anyone. It might be that you are relying on old emails to remain in touch with people, but those are getting bounced right back to you on first send because their contact information is outdated. Make sure to get accurate, updated contacts, and then get rid of old or duplicate emails, phone numbers, and contact details that you have been using, and get ready to finally get in touch.
2. Set Your ‘Get Pumped’ Playlists…
Nothing gets you more motivated and productive than having some great tunes playing while you work, or workout! Slim down your music files, then add the latest tunes for getting your head back in the game, and your body in top form. Need some suggestions? We’ve got you covered…
3. Put A Fresh Face Forward…
You didn’t hear it from us, but… social media matters. Whether you are hoping to put up the best, most stylish shots for your personal brand, or just want to project yourself at your most professional (drinks down, please…), the new year is a fantastic time to update your social media profiles to reflect your biggest goals in the year ahead. Make sure your duplicate photos are not bloating your computer, and who knows, maybe amongst all of the multiple shots you’ve collected over the years, you’ll stumble upon a hidden gem.
4. Build in Some Time for Self-Care
It’s great being active and productive, but there are times when you really need to slow down and relax. Our tip? Fix some delicious healthy food (or order in), and curl up with a playlist of your favorite movies. There’s really nothing like a great movie to keep you comforted on days when you need it most. Just don’t kill the vibe by having a slow-running computer that’s weighed down by multiple copies of the same movie. Quality “Me Time” means high-quality copies of all your favorites. Let the self-care begin!
5. Get Ready, Get Set, Get Organized!
Set aside some time, create a system (we like alphabetical), and get your Google Drive or Dropbox files organized, so that everything you need is easy to find and use. The biggest obstacle for most people is usually combing through all of the files they never even realized were duplicates. With even a little bit of time and the right tools, you can set yourself up for success in basically no time. You’ll be glad you did (you don’t have to thank us!).
Setting goals and getting into the groove of a new year doesn’t have to be overwhelming. The biggest obstacle for many of us is not knowing where to begin. But take it from us, getting clear and uncluttered is the first step into moving forward with your plan of attack, no matter what your goals are.
With Easy Duplicate Finder, you’ve got all of your resources in one place to get your duplicate files cleared, your devices working smoothly, and giving you the opportunity to streamline your life, to make sure that the next year is your best year yet.
