One of my New Year’s resolutions is to organize my collections of music, photos and videos. When I say organize I mean get rid of music I don’t listen to, print favorite pictures and create photo albums, and transfer videos to DVDs from bits and pieces of hundreds of iphone, videocamera and older home movies videos. Yeah, I know, wish me luck!
One way I am achieving my “video” goal is by using the services of YesVideo, because they are the easiest way I can transfer my home movies from Super 8 to DVD (sure, I’ve thought about borrowing a projector and playing the movie on the wall while recording the scenes on my iphone, but I seriously doubt the quality would be the same, or any good at all!)
After giving YesVideo a try in the past, I was so impressed with their service that I’ve decided to transfer over all of my old Super 8s with them, because what’s the point of having all these big wheels laying around if I can’t watch them?
But let me show you:
The first step is to go to www.yesvideo.com and enter your email address to get started.
In the next page you select the types of home movies you want transferred to DVD. In this case, I selected a 5-inch reel and a 7-inch reel. You immediately see the cost to process these transfers.
So the option of customizing the video is priceless for me, because I am able to select scenes from many different film reels and discard any useless ones.
That way I can fit 10 big and clumsy film reels in just one DVD. The cost of a custom DVD is $9.99.
YesVideo is a great tool to finally be able to organize your old movies and preserve their survival. Give it a try!
Update: Now you also have the option of sharing your videos on a website or a blog, just by clicking on the blue plus sign next to the videos: Create a link to this snippet, which will give you a code to embed any video you like.
