Back in the 1980's, simpler home video recording and movie watching was made possible through VHS videotape. Transfer of old processed film reel media; once requiring an old film projector, could now be converted to VHS. Videotapes played in VCR's included VHS-C cassette tapes from video cameras. Betamax video tapes were an entirely different format of videotape and required a separate machine for playing video. Tapes in the 1990's for video recording improved to Video8 camcorder and Video8 cassette tapes. An upgraded Hi8 (high-band) Video8 tape soon preceded the Video8 format, followed by additional improved home filming options with Digital8 video. Professional Betacam was the chosen videotaping format during this time and through the 2000's for corporate and business video. MiniDV camcorders were commonly used for personal or home-use through the 2000's as well before digital recording replaced the videotape.
Today, most all video tapes can be converted to digital format. Do you know the type of your video tape?
