Video DVD ????????

I, well my wife , wants to get our wedding video digitized and put on dvd. The place we had it shot since went out of business and another videographer quoted us $200 to do it.

Is there any better way? Does somebody maybe have equipment to do this?

You would kinda have to hop-skip-jump from VHS to DVD (as far as I know.)

I've dubbed some stuff from VHS to DVD, it's not too bad. I usually record it from the VCR to a DV camcorder... and from there, dump it via firewire to the PC. Then it's just a matter of dragging/dropping the video file into the DVD-writer program and clicking "record"

You can skip the DV camcorder step if you have a video-capture card in your PC.

actually not a bad deal for $200. i guarantee that if you tried it yourself you will spend a lot of frustrationg moments trying to get the chapters arranged and downloading all the extra software it takes (for some reason the dvd recorders don't have the greatest burning software) sometimes the audio doesn't line up with the video (you get mouths moving and a split second later you get the words0 sux watching it that way.

spend the $200 and let someone else deal with the frustration.

plus a 1 or 2 hour wedding video is going to eat up a LOT of hard drive space!!!!!

IMO Id get a video capture card for your pc and do it yourself. Theres several models out there for $80-$400. Most of them work like Tivo systems, you can watch TV, and correct a VCR for tape to DVD conversion. http://www.hauppauge.com/html/wintvpvr_datasheet.htm

or you can get a card that only does video editing, but there generally just as much, but offer better software for editting http://www.pinnaclesys.com/ProductPa...73&Langue_ID=7

This is a cash and carry world - pay as you go
sometimes you only have to pay a little, mostly it's alot, once in a while it's all you have.

You're right I didn't really think about that. well you can put them into vcd or svcd format, which goes onto a regular cdr, which will play it most new newer dvd players. but not as much info thou.

There is another, cheaper option... But it only works on DVD players that support VCD. You could make a VideoCD, and it looks/works like a DVD. Just my .02

Forgot to add that all you need for that is a CD-R and a CD burner.

Go to cdrhelp.com too (I think that's the one) and make sure you look up your DVD player for compatibility. Even if it can read VCD/SVCD/XVCD and DVDR it might not be able to read the format that someone is going to make for you... There's a lot of recorders out now that will do all four major formats (-R, -RW, +R, +RW) but if they burn it in -R and your reader only handles +R you'll still be screwed.

That's why I bought the Sony DRU500 (they have a 510 now too but I don't know what the difference is) that does all formats.

Go buy yourself a DVD recorder and a capture card (most high end "gamer" type cards have video in nowadays too).

You can compress the video and get like 6 hours on one DVD, or 2 hours of highest quality. If you go the VCD route you can use a regular CDR burner and el-cheapo cdrs. You only get one hour of "decent" video quality per CDR though. And not all DVD players will handle VCD.

Now I know why I design/build custom cabinetry/furniture and sell difficult to find hardware, less freaking acronyms And the technology doesn't change everyday! I buy a tablesaw every 15 to 20 years, you guys must buy new hardware/software every 2 days, how in the hell can you learn it's limits when it changes all the time.

As someone who has been a computer programmer for a few years now I can tell you that I get sick of learning the new stuff all the time. You can never stay on top of it all and if you work hard to learn it your knowledge is almost useless in a couple months time. Maybe I should go into the furniture business. Since I grew up building experimental aircraft with my dad I should be able to handle furniture right?



I would suggest against going with VCD. You do not want to archive important videos like that. The quality sucks and you will need a whole spool of cdrs to get it all recorded.
Either spend the money on the DVD burner or if your computer is outdated then buy a new computer that comes with the dvd burner. As previously mentioned the Sony dru500+ is a great burner and you can get an internal or external one that can burn all formats. I have not gotten into it much but the pinnacle software I have heard is very good. Some hackers even put it on kazaa.....
