Do you have home video tapes but you no longer have a VHS player? Those videos are precious, as they are your or your family’s history. Perhaps these video tapes recorded your first ski trip with the family, your birthday party when you turned 8, or your mom and dad’s wedding. These priceless memories should not fade with the fading VHS video tapes.

I just discovered a service called YesVideo. They will help you to bring your old memories into the world of 2014. Besides digitizing VHS videos, they also convert films. In additions, they partner with other retailers that could scan your printed photos. In other words, you can turn your entire box of these memories into a format that you can use in your computer. From then on, you can use their storage and tools to create DVDs and special feature online videos.

Bring Your Old Memories to 2014 - Digitize Your VHS Videos with YesVideo

  3. Fifteen business days later the content of your videos will be online and you can choose to watch, edit and share them

The price is quite reasonable – currently its $13 per video transfer. Film transfer is priced by length.
