Home videos can be great to pass the time on a rainy day. When you’re sitting at home with your family, twiddling your thumbs, you can bring out your family videos from a few years ago and entertain yourself, your significant other, and the kids.
But if you really want to elicit a reaction, try bringing out your videos from 10 or 20 years ago. The clothes and hairstyles from a different decade will make you want to laugh. Plus, it’s just nice to reminisce about old times and remember the kinds of things you used to do with your friends and family back then.
The Difficulty of Playing Old Home Videos
Most of us have some old home videos that we’d love to watch again, but unfortunately, they’re on an outdated form of technology such as VHS tape, camcorder tape, 8 mm film reels etc. Nowadays, it’s very difficult to even get a player to play these tapes and reels.
Even if you did manage to find a secondhand player to play your old home videos, it would probably be very expensive. And the fact is that those tapes and reels may have started deteriorating already and will continue to do so. So even if you do manage to get a player, you won’t have long before the tape gets corrupted.
Spending Quality Time With Your Family
It’s a good idea to get all your old home videos digitized. You can transfer them to DVD and later to your computer or your phone which will enable you to watch them whenever and wherever you want.
So the next time you get snowed in, get the popcorn ready and get the kids together to watch some old videos until everyone bursts into fits of giggles. There’s nothing like quality time spent with your family and transferring your home videos to DVD will help you to do this.
