What is MP4?
MP4 is the most common type of video file, which can be played back on most devices such as your computer, TV, phone or tablet. An MP4 file works like any other file and can be copied and pasted from one storage device to another. So, can you convert VHS to digital? Yes, you can easily back up and create digital copies of your converted videos, as well as be able to edit them and share them online. We can provide MP4 files either on a memory stick or in the cloud.
Memory Stick and Online Download
Can VHS tapes be converted to digital? We can provide MP4 files either on a memory stick, or hosted in the cloud, both of which contain exactly the same files. With a memory stick, you get back all your videos on one memory stick, which you can use on your computer or TV. With online download, we would upload all the video files to our cloud and share an access link by email.
You can play our DVD’s on DVD players or computer disc drives. The DVDs will automatically play when inserted into a DVD player. With videotape and VHS to DVD, we create one DVD per tape and with photo & cine film transfers we will provide many files on each disc. If a videotape is longer than 3 hours, we will split the video onto multiple DVDs at no additional cost. The main advantage of converting to DVD is that it is very easy to play.
If you struggle with technology and are familiar with playing DVDs, then DVD is the format to convert to. But, is it better to convert VHS to digital? If you want a future proof format that is far more flexible and secure then MP4 is the way to go. In most cases, we highly recommend converting to MP4.
