Converting VHS To DVD – Instructional Videos

Most of the work I do in converting VHS to DVD involves home videos. It’s always a pleasure to do these, as I know it really lets some wonderful memories come back. These are not, however, the only type of video people contact me about.

In recent times I’ve had a few requests to convert guidance or instructional videos to DVD. These have covered quite a diverse range, featuring everything from fly fishing through to martial arts. All of them have featured useful and important information which the owner wishes to watch again.

An example of an instructional video has come my way. I’ve uploaded it to the You Tube channel for The Taper to show the quality of my converting VHS to DVD work.

Converting VHS to DVD – Why Do It?

The most obvious answer to this is that someone wishes to watch what is on the tape again. In cases of home videos that’s quite understandable. For instructional videos, though, some further information is valuable.

In many cases videos of documentaries and instructional guides are no longer available. These are videos which have not been released on DVD or as a digital download. A previous article here mentioned that some 50% of all VHS tapes released in the UK have not been reissued in a different format. My converting VHS to DVD services directly addresses this problem.

Not many of us have kept a working VHS machine, or have one set up to play tapes. My services make it far easier to watch the content of VHS tapes again. The DVDs I produce work with the overwhelming majority of DVD and Blu Ray players in the UK. In fact, as my DVDs are “Zone Free”, they should play without problem anywhere in the world.

Converting VHS to DVD – An Example

Let’s have a closer look at this tape I have used as an example.

This tape is over 20 years old. As people buying camcorders or video cameras today are likely to buy digital ones it would make little sense to release this one on DVD. There are, however, a great many people who still use tape based video cameras. This kind of instructional video is ideal for people wanting to get the most from their equipment.

As mentioned earlier I have converted this tape as an example of my converting VHS to DVD services. Here’s the direct link to the video. Despite the tape being old, and quite well used, the quality has come out exceptionally well.

There are thousands of tapes like this that are of interest to people in this day and age. I will be delighted to help you watch them once again with my services.
