Converting Your Wedding Videos to DVD


Technology marches ever onward and, as it does, it carries us right along with it. In the early 1980ís, as VCRís dropped in price and appeared in more and more homes, there was a sudden mass appeal for people to have their old Super 8 home movies converted to video cassette. Video tapes last far longer than film and it just made sense to convert those old reels into a more watchable and compact format. People brought their movies of their babyís first steps, birthday parties, and weddings and turned them into video tapes. Not long after that, video cameras became cost effective for people to buy and those old super 8 cameras and projectors went the way of the dodo. People began using video tape for everything and the wedding video was born.

Technology has shifted yet again, folks. You may have noticed less and less video tapes at your local Blockbuster store. The medium is becoming extinct, replaced by DVD. Guess what? Itís time to convert yet again. DVD discs last far longer than video tape, offer higher quality picture and sound, and can run longer than video cassettes. By converting your wedding videos to DVD you can ensure that the memories you saved will last even longer.

The process of converting your wedding video to DVD is not complicated, but to do it yourself you will need some special equipment. Obviously youíll need a DVD recording device and a way for your VCR to connect to it. If you have a DVD burner on your computer, youíre halfway there. You will also need a way for your VCR to interface with your computer. Most computers do not come shipped with a way to do this. Youíll need to install a TV card on your computer that has inputs that match your VCRís outputs. Most TV cards do have both RF and A/V inputs.

Next youíll need to record the wedding video onto the computerís hard drive. You may need special software to do this if your TV card didnít come with any bundled. Sonyís Vegas Video is a good one, but there are a number of different titles available. Keep in mind that the video will take up a lot of drive space. In order for the video to be placed on DVD it will have to be in an MPEG format. Your video recording software should be able to save it this way. Once that is done, itís simply a matter of using your DVD burning software to transfer the video onto a DVD disc that you can then watch on any DVD player. The software will have instructions for doing this. Once the process (which can take some time, be warned) is complete, viola! Your wedding video is now on DVD and can be enjoyed forever.

If you donít have or canít afford the equipment and software to follow the preceding steps, fear not. There are companies that can take away all of the hassle and transfer your wedding videos to DVD for you, for a price. Whichever method you choose will have the same end result and youíll be enjoying your old wedding videos and other home movies on a new format thatís built to last.
