Unlike your old vinyl record collection, those VHS tapes you stored away in the back of your closet or in boxes aren’t going to see a comeback in popularity. There are no videophiles celebrating the superior experience and devotion of these analog tapes. No, VHS is a dying commonplace that fully deserves to be put in its grave.

But, don’t just throw away your videotapes or reels yet. Why not modernize those them into digital copy?! Let me introduce you to YesVideo! For 15 years, YesVideo has helped families protect and share generations of memories, and they are now the largest and most trusted home movies transfer service worldwide. My family is preparing for a BIG MOVE soon, and I am preparing by downsizing and decluttering. YesVideo is the perfect service for us, so my family can relive those special moments forever, from here or abroad!

Let’s take a moment to archive any sentimental home movies you still have on tape. Honestly, those really should be the only VHS tapes you’re still holding on to. Whatever horrible ’80s sitcom you taped religiously has since been reissued in crisp digital detail, so don’t waste your time (or possibly break the law) by recording it to your computer.

  2. We *really* need to do this. We still have our wedding video and a bunch of videos of my oldest when she was a baby on a mini-VHS tapes. We don’t have anything to play them on anymore. I would be over the moon to get to watch them again!
