Update Video’s To DVD’s With Professional YesVideo Service ~ Walk Down #MyMemoryLane

This post on Updating Video’s To DVD’s With Professional YesVideo Service with a walk down #MyMemoryLane is brought to you by my partnership with YesVideo.  However, the thoughts and opinions below are my own.   

Video's To DVD's With Professional YesVideo Service ~ #MyMemoryLane, VHS Conversion, DVD Conversion

Although I’m in my twenties, I am not ashamed for the world to know that I own “tapes.” We actually own a digital recorder that saves our memories to tape. In just the short 7.5 years we’ve been married, technology has changed so very much. When I had the chance to change some of our tapes into digital files I was elated. I never knew something like this was so tangible!

I’m not going to lie. It’s very scary taping up your files and sending them off to be transferred, especially when they are your only files. I was a big girl, I closed up that file bag, and mailed off my files to be transferred into the big bad digital files I knew they could become.  It was well worth it and I have good news for you!  This process has changed drastically and you no longer mail your files off to YesVideo in the manner that I did.  Their new process is much more convenient as you now head into your local photo counter of any Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart or CVS/pharmacy to place your order.  YesVideo accepts VHS tapes, camcorder tapes, movie film reels and 35mm slides.

I loved how the video came together and how I could see my precious first born looking back at me! It brought me to tears as I took a walk down memory lane watching my son again in his infant and toddler stages.  It was wonderful being able to capture these moments and watch them without all the hassle of a VCR (can those even be purchased new anymore).  I honestly will be using YesVideo again in the future because we have several tapes we need transferred over to digital files.  They also make great gifts for grandparents who live near or far!   

YesVideo’s process is very safe & secure. They handle customers’ memories as if they were their own. Their Memory Factory contains surveillance cameras at every stage, and digital copies of the transferred videos are archived for added security.

Home movie memories make a special and unique holiday gift. While orders typically take 3-4 weeks to complete, please allow extra time as Holiday season is a very busy time in the Memory Factory. Learn more about Holiday ordering deadlines. YesVideo’s holiday order deadline is December 3rd. All home movie media must be in the hands of YesVideo by December 3rd to receive your DVDs by December 24th.

What videos or memories would you like to update?




  • Krista

    I need to get all of my parents family home videos transferred over for them. What a great idea!

  • Rebekah

    We don’t have many home videos but the ones we do have are so precious. I really want to have them transferred so we can continue to enjoy them. Your video turned out great!

  • Mel

    I want to try this with my videos! Such a great service and easy to do!

  • Patty

    Oh how adorable. I totally missed the video period. We were on the road and my nieces and nephews were all back in NJ so I wasn’t there to be taking film of them. Now photos I have….heh. It’s wonderful that a service like this exists to save these memories for you.

  • Lena

    I did that a few years ago and I couldn’t be happier. Of course, it was an expensive purchase, but I think it is totally worth it

  • Jenn

    Great idea for the holidays. My husband should work with his parents to get some home movies onto DVDs

  • Jenna Wood

    This is such a great gift for the holidays- My parents did a full conversion a few years back and the whole family got together to watch all the archives and reminisce!

  • Holly S.

    My SIL got together all of the family’s old home movie reels and tapes and converted them to a digital file for each family member for Christmas. It made the most wonderful gift and we really enjoyed getting together to watch it. A great gift for family!

  • dede

    Our VHS tapes have long been packed away because we don’t even have our VCR hooked up anymore. I would love to switch them over to DVD. We have our wedding and ultrasound videos on them!

    • Brandy

      Those are such great memories to have Dede and like you we don’t even own a DVD player anymore. I thought they were “lost” forever but YesVideo makes the process so easy that I know I will be having several converted before the holidays.

  • Ellen Christian

    What a great service. I bet my parents would enjoy something like this for Christmas.

    • Brandy

      It’s a great service Ellen and would make for several amazing gifts.

  • susan

    I have videos of my parents wedding that I would love to preserve. It would be something I am sure my daughter would love to see one day.

    • Brandy

      Yes! I bet that she would and the process is so simple to be able to pass those memories down when the original media is outdated.

  • Janice

    I so need to do this! I have so many old tapes around here!

  • Melanie R.

    I actually used this service and brought back some of my very own childhood memories that I can now share with my kids. It is amazing… I just love that we can bring back these memories..thanks for sharing and I have a few more VHS tapes to go till I have them all transferred over

    • Brandy

      That’s great to hear Melanie. My parents have several videos of my childhood that I’m so glad are not gone forever! I can’t wait to show my boys what mommy was like as a kid.

  • Elizabeth @ Being MVP

    Ah I remember VHS. This is great that you can get it transferred so easily!

    • Brandy

      It is so easy and it’s nice to have those memories in a format that I can access again.

  • Cinny

    Oh, we had VHS tapes from our childhood too. That’d be awesome to change them to DVD’s!

  • Patty

    I felt that way when I sent pictures off to be put on discs. I don’t have any videos probably because I don’t have any kids. I can where this would be a wonderful service.

  • Mama to 5 BLessings

    I so need to do this and get rid of all the big clunky VHS tapes, I would have so much more room!

  • I have so many videos I would like to update onto DVD’s. My wedding would be first. It’s probably the oldest video (from 1988). Eeeek. I hate to even put that! It gives away my age! hee-hee. Second would be my son’s birth (tastefully done). He will be turning 20 yo soon! Definitely looking into YesVideo! Thanks!

    • Brandy

      It’s such a great service! They really care about their clients!

  • Alena Belleque

    My mother has a number of VHS tapes from my childhood that I would love to have converted to digital files. What I really need, though, is a service that will retrieve files from old computer floppy discs and convert them to modern digital files. I have a bag of over 20 floppies with all my writing and pictures from high school and college, and no way to view them! #sad

    • Brandy

      This makes for a great service for that Alena. It’s so sad to think that we have lost some of those memories and I love that this service offers a way to bring them back.
