In today’s fast paced world of content consumption, finding plentiful, LEGALLY available audio and video can be a problem. Ripping CD’s for your digital music player has become common place and acceptable, but yanking movies from DVD’s is still somewhat of a no-no. Downloading MP3′s and the like from the digital store of your choice is ok, but can be expensive if you have a large “appetite.” This is the main reason why I like Audials One. It’s a content engine for Windows.
Audials helps you find the music you’re looking for when you need and want it. All you really need to do is enter a preferred genre, artist, album or song title, and Audials will provide you with your desired music. You can record the audio from one of the 60,000 Internet radio stations or via direct download from a website.
Whenever you stream to music from a website or separate stream player, Audials can record that music for you and then automatically save it for you as an MP3. No matter if it is a streaming service like Simfy or a music portal such as Last.fm, Grooveshark or Spotify. Audials makes recording that music easy.
If movies are your thing, then Audials is your way to the silver plated screen. It magically displays a button next to videos and films in any browser or stream player that lets you record it. Just click the button with your mouse and Audials automatically saves the video. Audials records movies from online video queues, media queues or even from video streaming services; and then automatically saves the subsequent files in the desired file format for all of your playback devices.
