Transfer home movies to DVD with YesVideo!

This is post about solutions to transfer home movies is made possible by YesVideo.

I admit, I’m already planning my holiday gift lists.  I’m running in to road blocks because it gets harder each year to find the perfect gift for certain family members.

Then I think about the boxes of photos and home movies on VHS and reel to reel and I get an idea. What about giving loved ones the ability to easily transfer home movies to DVD? Especially before those old movies are damaged?

It’s as simple as heading to my local Target store and picking up a new Target YesVideo Gift Card.

The cards can only be used online, towards the purchase of transferring home media to the cloud, digitizing it online. Both reel to reel and video tapes can be transferred. Once the home movies have been transferred online the you may order a DVD which will become available to purchase after the transfer is complete, you also have the option of sharing your videos publicly via social networks or secure emails with password to access the videos to keep private.

  1. I love this idea for a holiday gift to give my mom. She is a collector of family memories, but she isn’t technologically savvy enough to do it herself. You are absolutely right that we need to transfer our family films to DVD before the tapes get damaged.
