The practice of "Time Shifting" allows users to view and/or listen to a work or sound recording that is publicly broadcast at a time of their choosing. Using the Betamax ruling, that makes it legal to record Internet Broadcasts for personal use.
Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
MP3 Rocket, a leader in YouTube downloading and conversion solutions, announced that new downloads of MP3 Rocket version 6.0.6 have exceeded 20,000 per day. The increase in users is tied to both mass exodus from the Gnutella network as well as the record number of files being made available from YouTube. This benchmark occurs as YouTube releases new data indicating over 3 billion daily views.
"Reaching 20,000 daily downloads is a terrific achievement for MP3 Rocket," said Paschal Rousseau, MP3 Rocket developer. "We listened to our user base and have been adding the most requested features including higher downloading bit rates, access to full length HD movies, and a popularity ranking system. As we continue to make improvements and advancements to the software we hope to see that number continue to rise."

In early 2011 MP3 Rocket transitioned away from a P2P downloading client and moved exclusively to offering a YouTube downloader and file converting tool. The shift in direction has allowed MP3 Rocket to make improvements to the software, offer a more expansive media library, and has dramatically grown their user base.
MP3 Rocket innovations allows users to:
- Preview and download YouTube videos as MP3's.
- Easily sync to an iPod with a single click.
- Capture video from almost any internet stream or broadcast.
- Get more results faster for MP3 searches.
- Play games and chat with friends.
MP3 Rocket subscribers are able to search, download and convert media for use on their home computers and mobile devices. Utilizing the practice of "Time Shifting" MP3 Rocket makes media files available to download and view immediately, or at a more convenient time in the future.
"With the rise in mobile devices and on-the-go internet use its impractical to expect people to wait until they return to a television to enjoy media access," said Paschal Rousseau, MP3 Rocket developer. "MP3 Rocket lets subscribers use their computer the same way they do their TiVo. We are removing the time/location requirements from the equation. In a sense by enabling our user base to decide when and where they want to enjoy their media we are giving them freedom."
The practice of "Time Shifting" allows users to view and/or listen to a work or sound recording that is publicly broadcast at a time of their choosing. Using the same ruling that makes it legal to record television at home MP3 Rocket has made recording to your computer a viable option as well.
