Here we have several reasons why you it could be relevant for you to record video streaming and music streaming and store them as files locally on your PC.

Important: DMCA 1201 and Terms of Service
Music Streaming Services that can be recorded with Audials do not use any effective protection against recording and output unencrypted audio e.g. on the PC's sound system. Audials always only records such unencrypted audio data. The US Copyright Act (DMCA) stipulates in Article 1201 that no "effective protection" of copyright-protected content may be circumvented.
The tool "Audials One" presented here fully meets these requirements. More information
Please note that recording music and video streaming content without proper permissions may violate the streaming services' terms of service. Always ensure that you have the necessary rights and permissions before recording and storing content locally. 

The Most Important Reasons to Record Streaming

Why should I record streaming?

Watch streaming content offline

You can enjoy all content without an internet connection (and without relying on that a service makes available for buffering just your content). And please take into account that it's too late to download once the internet is off.

Content may become unavailable

Offerings of streaming services may change - so your most loved movies or series may just disappear.

Avoid interruptions due to ads and buffering issues

By saving content locally, users can avoid ads. Users with slow or unreliable internet connections may face constant buffering while streaming, making it a frustrating experience. Local files can be played seamlessly without interruptions.

Switching to another streaming service or unsubscribing

In some future, you may decide to switch to a different service, or cancel your subscription. Then, all your music or movies will be lost. And only with good luck and some work you will find them on a new service again.

Watch your content when you are on holiday

If you go on vacation, you may not be allowed to see your content because it could be unavailable in some countries, unless you take your recordings with you.

Be complete, have everything you like

Some streaming service may offer most content, but specific tracks or movies may be only available in a different source. By maintaining an own collection, you can assure that every single thing you really love is in it.

These are the four most important reasons. But there are more:

Further Reasons to Record Video Streaming and/or Music Streaming

What is a streaming recorder?

A streaming recorder, also known as a stream capture or recording tool, is a specialized software to capture and save multimedia content from various online streaming platforms. As the name implies, this technology allows users to record live or on-demand audio, video, and other forms of digital content directly from the internet, enabling them to watch or listen to the captured media offline and at their convenience.

Streaming recorders offer several benefits, including the ability to save content for later consumption and overcoming limited or unreliable internet connections. Some popular streaming platforms that can be recorded include music services, video hosting sites, live broadcasting channels, and social media platforms.

These tools typically work by intercepting the data packets transmitted between the streaming service and the user's device. Once captured, the data is saved to a local storage drive. The recorded files can then be accessed, edited, or converted into various formats for compatibility with different devices.
