Start ripping your audio and video in just 5 minutes. Well cover downloading, capturing, converting and replaying. Very easy to use one-click “on/off” software, you can’t go wrong.
By turning the recording application “On” Replay Media Catcher will “listen” for Spotify audio streams and record directly from the stream as opposed to the computers soundcard. By recording from the stream users will end up with a perfect copy of audio recording even with a slow internet connection or even annoying buffering. The application will export the recordings to the file as well as file format of your choice. Mac and iTunes fans will enjoy the “Export to iTunes Library” option and will find all their Spotify recordings feature album art as well as title and album information.
While most users will opt to set the Spotify Recorder to export to MP3, there are several other export options to choose from. WAV format is preferred by those audiophiles who wish to sample music from Spotify, while WMA (Windows Media Audio) might be the Spotify conversion choice for those who wish to download Spotify to WMA. Not limited to audio, Spotify now features videos as well as podcasts and the Spotify Recorder can capture those formats as well.
Spotify uses various bitrates as well as different file formats when streaming their audio files. The standard bitrate for mobile devices is 96 kbps. Most users will not notice an audible difference between a high and low bitrate although audiophiles wouldn’t want to use a 96 kbps bitrate for sampling or using audio from Spotify for professional presentations or performances.
Spotify for PC’s as well as Mac uses a bitrate of 160 kbps. Nearly double the quality of mobile devices. However poor quality speakers will not be able to produce a noticeable difference between the 96 kbps provided by mobiles and the 160 kbps provided by a desktop computer or laptop.
Open the dashboard and select “record from internet”. If you don’t see the dashboard, look in your icon tray.
Select what file type you would like to convert to (if any) and which folder you would like it exported to.
Open Spotify and stream whatever audio & video you like. Don’t worry, you can open other applications and stream those at the same time.
Easy, your tracks are being captures and converted as we speak, it can’t get an easier than that. Enjoy!
