    Default Replay Media Catcher 7 Only Downloads Low Resolution Vids

    I notice unlike prior versions that would record streams at multiple bitrates, v7 seems to only grab the lowest resolution stream from sites like bloomberg.com

    Example video: https://www.bloomberg.com/features/peer-to-peer/

    It downloads 240x130 and that is it. The video conversion process is also poor, with audio dropouts every 5 seconds or so.

    Each stream is different. I download at higher resolutions on a daily basis. It is just that some streams are not able to be captured using that based on how they are streaming.

    Default Re: Replay Media Catcher 7 Only Downloads Low Resolution Vids

    I'm having the same problem with BBC iPlayer. It streams in HD on my browser window, but I get a SD (or less) file with Media Catcher for Mac. I would hope that rather than just say each stream is different, you would have programmers attempt to fix this so that the app knows about the "differences" and adapts to get the right one. If it can't do that when released, then it should be disclosed clearly before the customer buys or upgrades. The description I read does not say that it only gets some streams in lower resolution than what is being viewed by streaming.
