Raise your hand if you’ve been stuck in transit – on your daily commute, long flight, or back seat of the car – and feeling completely bored.
For folks who enjoy a little video entertainment, it can be super tempting to start watching something on your favorite app or service. In fact, a recent study from eMarketer determined that “the average time consumers spend on their mobile devices has increased by nearly a minute per day over the past four years, while the amount of time they spend watching traditional television sets has dropped by more than 30 seconds in the same time period.”
Streaming movies on-the-go isn’t exactly the ideal situation for your (likely) strapped data plan, though. And, while many sites and services now offer the ability to download some very select content to watch offline on your smartphone, the limitations behind WHAT you can actively download and WHERE you can save the file beyond your phone can make things difficult.
Lucky for movie lovers, there’s an easy way to record high-quality movie files from online sources in ANY format needed, so you can save on any mobile device – from your smartphones to your tablets. Replay Video Capture is the only tool out there that can do just that. With powerful software that can track, capture, and save your favorite videos as they play online, you can save movies to your smartphone (or any other mobile device) from places like:
- Amazon Video
- Comedy Central
- and many, many more
This means that you can later watch it anywhere and anytime, as often as you wish. No continuous Internet connection is required to watch the movie, once its file has been downloaded and saved!

Good to note: The digital file associated with a movie requires storage space on the device you’re using. The file size will depend on the resolution of the movie, as well as its length. Plan to allocate between 2GB and 3GB of storage space for each Standard HD resolution movie, and upwards of between 4GB and 6GB for a 1080p or 4K resolution version of a movie.
