We’re just getting over our sugar hangovers and have finally tossed out those moldy scary pumpkins (they looked so good though!). So in remembrance of one of our favorite holidays, here’s a hilarious prank video featuring one of the best pet costumes that should only be used to terrify pedestrians. Enjoy your distraction for the day and if you have any funny Halloween pet costumes, we’d love to see them! Post them up on our Facebook or Twitter.
World Cup frenzy has officially begun! And whether you’re rooting for your geographical homeland, cultural favorite, or just watching for the fun of it, the month-long once-every-four-years tournament is definitely an exciting event to get “into” even if fútbol isn’t your most-watched sport.
One of the big bummers about the internationally played tournament is that the live games come on at all kinds of crazy times. We’re not exactly big fans of getting up super early on a Friday morning just to see if Spain will make it to the finals, nor would we be very good at our jobs if we left work in the middle of the day to catch a match, so thankfully, we’ve made Replay Video Capture to help you record and keep all the 2014 World Cup action.
Check out our tutorial video on how you can use this (amazing) product to replay the matches at your leisure… preferably in your teams’ colors and appropriate national beverage. (Sangria? Red wine? Tea?)
Stay tuned here for more World Cup fun. We have some stuff up our sleeves! Be sure to check out the free trial of Replay Video Capture before kick-off THIS THURSDAY, JUNE 12th!
Sometimes the hardest part of watching a movie is simply picking one out. To help you avoid those cinematic confrontations, here’s a list of Netflix Streaming movies and shows that we’re super into right now. In fact, feel free to “win the war” and schedule Netflix to record with Replay Video Capture even when you’re away. So when the time comes, you’ve got some serious ammo ready. You’re welcome!
Bob’s Burgers: Your new answer to the Simpsons. This adult cartoon is hilarious in all the right places and a perfect way to get some giggles when you come home after a long day of work. Without the annoying commercials, animated shows like this one are totally worth the time.
End Of Watch: Not exactly family-friendly, but this riveting thriller about Los Angeles cops is intense and feels real enough that you walk away with a new perspective of police work. Amazingly acted, this emotionally gripping story is worth sitting through.
Muscle Shoals: A top-notch music documentary for those interested in rock, blues, and soul. Illustrating the sounds that seeped from the small Alabama town, Muscle Shoals during the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the films features cameos from Aretha Franklin, Mick Jagger, Bono and Alicia Keys. You’ll be tapping your foot the whole time.
Drinking Buddies: This under-rated indie comedy about two friends who take a vacation with their significant others is a far cry from the rom-com nightmares. If you’re looking for the realism, humor, tension and feel-goodness that actual relationships bring, then this one should top the list.
Oh, and you should definitely record these now rather than later because Netflix has a tendency to discontinue streaming movies and crush your Instant Queue to smithereens. Plus, we think you might just want to watch these again, so recording them with Replay Video Capture is highly recommended.
Check out how to schedule Netflix recordings above. This way you can schedule Replay Video Capture to record when you’re snoozing or away from your PC. Don’t have this magical software? Go buy it today and use the coupon code NETFLIX2014 to get $5 off your purchase of Replay Video Capture!
Keeping up with the constant changes in streaming protocols is just the job for Replay Media Catcher‘s Engineers. They like a challenge and frequently whip up very smart solutions to very tough problems. If you’ve installed the most recent version of Replay Media Catcher, you’ll see that we’ve made some great improvements. And if you like to download streams from YouTube, then you’ve likely seen the new prompt to install a CA certificate. So what’s that all about? Have no fear! We’re here to break it down for you. Let’s get nerdy, shall we?
YouTube and some other sites now stream their media over an HTTPS connection by default. So what is HTTPS? Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure is the secure version of http. Typically used when a secure connection is necessary. Like for ecommerce transactions and such. When you connect to a website that is using HTTPS, the session is encrypted with a Digital Certificate.
Let’s first look at how Replay Media Catcher downloads, then we’ll explain how installing the CA Certificate helps it to do it’s job better. When you switch on Replay Media Catcher, it starts sniffing the network traffic. Looking for media to download. As you come across streaming video or music, Replay Media Catcher decodes that network traffic and if it understands what it is seeing on the network, it tries to detect and download the media based on intelligence we’ve written for that protocol. Pretty slick, right? That’s how Replay Media Catcher can download so much more without browser plugins. It simply does not need them. It only listens to the network.
Let’s say you’ve switched on Replay Media Catcher’s monitoring and you’re happily browsing along and decide to download the latest viral video on YouTube. Remember we said that YouTube is now streaming their media over an HTTPS connection.. SSL is the standard security technology for establishing an encrypted link between a web server and a browser. When you see HTTPS in the URL, you are using the SSL/TLS protocol to speak to that website. Replay Media Catcher will then not understand that traffic and disregard it. That sounds like bad news, right? Nope! Read on…
If you’re running Replay Media Catcher version 184.108.40.206 or later, you’ll notice a new prompt when it first sees media from a site that is streaming over HTTPS. This prompt explains that in order for Replay Media Catcher to scan for media that is streamed over HTTPS, a CA certificate is required to be created. A CA (Certificate Authority) is an authority in a network that issues and manages security credentials.
You can choose to allow HTTPS scanning or not. If you choose no, Replay Media Catcher will ignore any HTTPS streaming and you’ll be sad. That breaks my heart. Say YES!
If you choose YES, (and we recommend you do) then Windows will prompt you to install the CA certificate. Windows presents you with this:
The title of the window says “Security Warning”. Yeah, well…it’s not a problem. Windows is just letting you know that a certificate is about to be installed. Windows says that it cannot validate the certificate as actually being from Replay Media Catcher, but have no fear. We have created a certificate called Replay Media Catcher 5 SSL Scanner Root. Essentially, it allows Replay Media Catcher to scan HTTPS traffic like that being served by YouTube for downloadable media. It is absolutely safe. And you are not putting yourself or your computer in any danger by installing it.
Don’t miss out on all the great streaming goodness that Replay Media Catcher can download. It’s waaay smarter than any other streaming media downloader. Guaranteed!
