YesVideo hired me to tell you about their new free app for iPad. I think it’s worth your while to learn about. All opinions are my own.
Last year I tested out YesVideo’s film transfer service. I sent in some old home movies on film and VHS cassettes. I got back magic on a DVD.
My husband dancing to Greased Lightning at age six. My sons as babies, round cheeked and toddling first steps.
Before, I could only tell you about these things. Now I can show you. Since I already had videos processed by YesVideo, as soon as I downloaded the free app onto my iPad, everything popped up.
I was stunned to see all the images. I spent the first five minutes just looking at the preview mode and crying.
Then I noted the features: the ability to create a snapshot from my videos, to share easily on social media like Facebook, and to email. My mom is going to be so happy. Pictures of grandkids are like Granny crack, and these are moments we don’t have photographs of.
During my wedding ceremony, no photography was allowed—just the videographer. Now I can use that video to capture stills I could never had otherwise. Here we are gripping each other “for dear life,” as my husband says.
I think he’s about to pass out. Isn’t he cute? This was exactly sixteen years ago tomorrow. Before YesVideo, this was on a VHS tape sitting in his sock drawer.
I think the reasons to use YesVideo are important: you have film and VHS cassettes somewhere in your house getting dusty and not being seen. We don’t even have a film projector or a VCR. Those memories were almost lost to the huge changes in media and from time.
Even better, the transferred video is now stored digitally where your memories will be safe, easy to retrieve, and easy to share.
I had some problems scrolling through my videos, which are broken up into chapters on the app. Some of that could have been due to my Internet connection.
The sound transferred well, and the images look as sharp as they do on the DVD copies I received for my original transfer.
I am very pleased with YesVideo, both the original transfer to DVD last year and the new app this week.
Download the app for free through the ITunes store and check out the features. I think it’s a great free add-on to the video transfer service and really makes YesVideo stand out. To learn more, check out their website, or follow them on Twitter or on Facebook.
Do you have any favorite memories from old videos? I certainly have too many to choose from now.
