VHS Conversion
« on: February 12, 2020, 10:16:20 AM »
Anyone have any luck with a service that will convert home videos on VHS to a digital file?  Mostly, I'm curious as to whether they maintain the native resolution (480i or whatever) in the digital file, or if I'm better off locating an old VHS player and and getting an s-video input card for my computer.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

It depends on the quality of the VHS.  When we converted some VHS taps to DVD a few years ago, the crappy VHS recordings look like crap on DVD.  The better VHS look like VHS but on DVD.  Not sure if that helps.

Unless Sultan says differently that is, then we’d obviously have to go with that....

A friend did this as part of his business and would keep the same resolution. Just asked him, he said Editran on Burleigh will upconvert to HD.

I used LegacyBox to convert 10 old VHS tapes of home videos for my parents for Christmas. They send you packaging, you mail it in, they return a jump drive, DVDs, or digital dropbox. The conversion is pretty good, same quality as the VHS, which obviously varies, but it’s the native resolution. Cost was very reasonable compared to Milwaukee PC and other places I reached out to, and half the turnaround time

They won’t do copyrighted material, FWIW

Nah, that is the senior meat summitteers that had "home movies" on vhs.  I'm all digital.
