So you can’t wait for all of the drama, snow, and Russian delight of the Sochi Games? Same here. Don’t exactly want to catch all the excitement whenever your TV dictates? We know the feeling. There’s an option this year to watch the competition live online.
In the US, NBC is broadcasting every single event online. However, you need to have a cable or satellite subscription to access with one of NBC’s partners (Xfinity, Time Warner Cable, Direct TV, Dish, AT&T U-verse, among many others), but once logged in, you can set up Replay Video Capture to record video directly to your hard disk. Simple, huh?
There are a couple other options if you are not in the US of A. Mainly, BBC and CBC, which are also streaming the Games for those with an IP address in the UK or Canada.
It’s like spandex to ice skating, skis to downhill moguls, erm… weird bathrooms to Sochi accommodations? Basically, Replay Video Capture is the perfect partner for your 2014 Olympic viewing needs online.
If you don’t have Replay Video Capture yet, download the free version here and get out your country’s flag for all of the international winter sports your heart desires.

We haven’t been using our blog much lately – but that’s about to change. We thought this would be a great space to highlight our latest product news, illustrate interesting use cases and perhaps even showcase how to solve some common recording problems.
Let’s start off talking about the latest update to Replay Music. For those of you who haven’t tried it yet – Replay Music is a great tool to record audio that streams online. It works with sites that MP3 downloaders can’t. Like Spotify. It’s important to note that Replay Music isn’t an MP3 downloader – instead it’s an advanced audio recorder that captures the audio that you play on your PC as high quality MP3s. Replay Music also includes a powerful song recognition engine that allows it to tag each individual MP3 it creates with title, artist, album and genre. Our most recent update to Replay Music offer great new features including a fix to the problem some Firefox users were having capturing audio after Adobe updated their Flash player. No more problem. Replay Music once again can create MP3s from any streaming source for all those Firefox users out there.
If you haven’t tried Replay Music recently – this latest version is worth checking out. Replay Music was just certified as a Windows 8 desktop app. So if you have just purchased Windows 8 have no fear – Replay Music will work beautifully for you. Check it out.

After reading a lot of commentary, and doing some testing, we’ve decided to lower the price of Replay Converter to just $9.95 last week. A lot of people are downloading videos to copy to other devices or DVD’s, or to prepare them to make mashups, and Replay Converter does a great job at this.
We decided that as a company it’s best to encourage more people to use our products, even if it means making a little less money. So if you’re looking for an easy to convert FLV files, or other things downloaded from the web, give Replay Converter a try.
