VHS was once at the forefront of technology. In fact, at one point you couldn’t find a house up and down the country that wasn’t brimming with videotapes. This, of course, all changed when they were made practically obsolete by the emergence of DVD. The question remains: why are you still hanging on to your old VHS after all these years? It’s probably one of the following reasons – all of which don’t really matter if you know how to convert your VHS to DVD.
It’s time to face the fact that VHS won’t be making a comeback. While video tapes might still hold a special place in the hearts of a select few, there’s really no use clinging on to the past – especially when you can embrace the future by converting your VHS to DVD. If you’re about to go down this route, here are four reasons why you can rest assured that video tapes won’t be making a comeback.

Transferring your wedding video to DVD or a digital format gives you back your video in a form that you can continue to watch easily, whenever the urge strikes.
