Do you have a collection of VHS tapes and no player today?
I do an laughed about it when looking in the cabinet :-)
No, but I have a crate full of vinyl LPs and no turntable to play them on.
Have you thought about the sale value of any? I had a collection until placed them in storage where they warped :-/
I scope out prices for certain ones on eBay now and again but aside from a few random pieces, I don't really have anything particularly rare or amazing. I just don't have the heart to get rid of them.
you can pick up a record player in many second hand stores Goodwill..etc and they are available online....if that hekps....
Yes, I have a collection of VHS tapes. I have a player but it doesn't work. Pretty crazy.
I used to have a collection of VHS tapes and cassette tapes, too. They were Disney movies so I didn't plan on disposing of them, but my home burned to the ground in September of 2012. We lost everything, including the tapes. It is kind of funny, but sometimes I wish I still had them because the vehicle has a tape taper player in it. And I do still have one VHS tape I need to copy to a DVD because someone else wants a copy of it and because I do not have a VHS player. It is a recording of a screen play we created in 7th grade for a school reading and writing project. Now that makes me laugh.
Yes, Tim. I do have both VHS and DVD tapes but no player. It was damaged long ago and we discarded it. We can view them by connecting to TV sets, but I am not interested in watching all those movies. My son views them in his laptop at times. I only listen to some audio cassettes with my player very rarely except the devotional ones which I play daily during puja time. Now, we have so much stuff in computers and mobiles and you can keep all those songs saved on the phone or computer for access from any corner of the world.
You could build a patio wall with the video cassettes we've got left over. There's a load of kids' video recordings, a few blanks that have been recorded on and a batch of feature recordings. All my own cassettes were consigned to the bin and I've gone over to dvd recordings. 'Er indoors has a growing clutch of dvds as well.
Found a use for vhs cassettes, Tim?
funny you should ask... yes I have several tapes and at one time had a conversion that you placed the tape from video camera and you could play it in your VCR... and recently the convertor quit working...( was an internal rewind etc) is no longer available on the market so my only recourse is to have ALL 32 tapes converted to CD .... or whatever....OMG.. this will cost a fortine..as I cannot do it myself....I don't necessarily hate technology BUT do hate the rate of speed and change...24-7......
These videos are only about 14 years .....old....it's not like 20.....

What's the best way I can get rid of VHS tapes?We have a closet full of VHS tapes, want to get them out as part of Spring-cleaning. We don't own a VHS tape-player anymore, obviously. All suggestions are welcomed.

Is there a way to upload old VHS tapes to the computer to be edited and digitized?I have an old RCA Pro-Edit VHS videocamera that I liked very much. I am familiar with A & B roll editing, tape-to-tape. I realize, however, that once you plug in your A/B roll footage, by the time...

I know this wouldn't be a full time job. Some places offer this already but if you had someone who would locally convert your old VHS home videos to DVD or a file online, would you be interested?

I am contemplating a video hub or two. I say 'contemplating,' because it all depends on whether I can successfully learn the proper formatting, and upload process. This digital editing is new to me, and I struggle with it. I have only the free version of Windows Movie Maker that...

So, do you think there are more secret tapes?
