This CNET article shows you how to transfer and digitize your old VHS tapes. Do it now, before the tapes totally disintegrate. The DIY Method. You need a analog converter that converts your analog video/audio signal into a digital signal. There are lots of them and they are not expensive.
Yes Google is getting back to the point where they can make a ton of money selling ad space on YouTube (along with your online activity data) but they have ambitions like everyone else. It's their own streaming video/movie/content channel. Ok it's not Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sky or Rogers but it's only $35 a month (whooppee!). My issue is that there is too much really insanely great indie filmmaker work out there to bother with the YouTube stuff. At NAB everyone will be hustling their solutions and hoping to gawd everyone doesn't get on the iNet or airwaves at the same time. Fortunately industry executives will get right on that little problem next month and by the time we're all needing a video fix it will be there...they hope.
