The new Splitting feature is located in the Advanced tab of each of your scheduled shows.

This update is FREE for all current Replay Radio 9 subscribers. Go get it!

Expand Your Music Library With Replay Music

Music - la-la-la

How many streaming music services do you listen to? Pandora, Rhapsody, Spotify, Grooveshark, Sirius/XM, Songza,? I love them all for different reasons. Next time you’re listening, try using Replay Music to record the tracks as you hear them. Just click START and listen. That’s really all there is to it. The songs you listen to from your favorite streaming music site, are recorded and saved to your PC as high-quality MP3 files (there are other formats too). The tracks are separated and  tagged with Artist, Album, Title and Genre. You can even set Replay Music to export the tracks to iTunes or Windows Media Player.

Pretty Nifty. Replay Music can record any audio it hears. Even from music videos. It’s a great way to discover new music. Remember, if you like the song you’ve recorded, support the Artist and go buy it.

Hope you’re having fun with Replay Music. Let us know how you use it.

Nerdist: http://www.nerdist.com/podcast/nerdist/
Our favorite interview podcast with actors, comedians, writers, and overall cool people. Hosted by self-proclaimed “King Nerd” Chris Hardwick, it’s a great way to hear behind-the-scenes stories from popular culture movers and shakers.

BFF: http://bff.fm
One of the best alternative radio stations in San Francisco, Best Frequencies Forever is a great resource for indie / electronic music from the underground. Catch up on “what the kids are listening to” and by kids… more like late 20-somethings with jam-packed iPods.

TWiT: http://twit.tv/twit

Stream & Record The 2014 Winter Olympics With Replay Video Capture

Riki can snowboard

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.

Grammy Time: Performances Worth Recording

As we’re sure you heard, the Grammys were a few days ago. Aside form the actual who-won-what part, the next best reason to watch any awards show is always the performances. This year was no exception. In fact, the show changed it up by giving out 10 awards before the cameras even started rolling, which means that this Grammy show was all about the performances. It got us thinking of some of our past favorite Grammy spectacles… so if you haven’t seen these, get comfy, and enjoy!

Although Beyonce had a seductive performance this year with Jay-Z, we prefer the flawless 2010 moves in “If I Were A Boy”, plus it turns into a perfect cover of Alanis Morissette’s “You Outta Know”… you’ll see:

We don’t want to make you depressed today, but if you need a good cry then watch Eric Clapton’s 1993 Song of the Year “Tears in Heaven”:

We had to post this 2007 performance by Christina Aguilera singing the James Brown classic “It’s A Man’s World”… because, I mean, those pipes. Yeesh.

There’s no way we could assemble a list of best Grammy performances and exclude the King of Pop! Here’s the iconic 1988 “Man in the Mirror” performance from Michael Jackson:

Our favorite performance from this year would have to be the finale jam of Daft Punk’s stellar hit “Get Lucky” with some awesome assistance from disco-royalty Nile Rodgers and the man himself, Stevie-freaking-Wonder. It’s definitely one worth watching, and re-watching, and re-watching…

Of course, you can always record these performances for your own personal archives with our Replay Media Catcher app. Try it here and start collecting all of your favorite Grammy performances!

Which was your favorite live performance of the night? Think any of them were Replay Media Catcher save-worthy? Let us know in the comments.

YouTube MP3 Fridays

For the last couple of Fridays, YouTube has changed how they are delivering videos, which has broken our downloading software (as well as all of our competitors). In particular, the Vevo branded music videos seem to be the ones that get the new technology first. Nevertheless, we are on top of it, and have managed to get new releases ready within a day or two of the changes. The bad news is that our engineering team is starting to loathe the end of the week.

The latest format is called MPEG-DASH — according to our alpha geek. We are having to do a little extra work to turn this format into a playable file, but the end result is as good as ever.

If you’re an avid YouTube downloader, you might consider trying Replay Video Capture for Video, and Replay Music for Music if you don’t want any downtime. Both of these products take an “analog” approach to recording, and will record video and music in high quality no matter what YouTube does behind the scenes.

Replay Media Catcher is still the fastest way to download from most video and music sites, and it makes a perfect digital copy of the original file. So no matter what changes happen in the future, we’ve got you covered!
