Convert Video to digital video files, and edit your video or upload it yourself! It's easy with Timeless DVD's digital video conversion service. We all have "less than perfect" shots on our home videos that we would prefer to edit out. And video editing software has never been easier or more available.

But it can be difficult to get the video from your tapes onto your computer. You need a device to convert your tapes' analog signal to digital, plus an adequate graphics card and tons of hard drive space. Not to mention know-how!

Timeless DVD can help! We can transfer your tapes to AVI or MOV files, which are editable in virtually any video program. Just load the files onto your computer and you're ready to start your digital video editing! Or select MP4 as your preferred file format if you just want to quickly upload your tapes' video to YouTube, an iPad, or a similar site or device.

We can also accommodate many other video conversions. For instance, we can convert the video on your Mini DVDs to regular video files that you can edit. Or we can convert MP4 files to AVIs, so they are more compatible with the major editing programs. Or we can convert MPEG-2 files to MP4s so you can share them online. If you need a certain type of video conversion – just ask!

Video to Computer - what about MPEG-2 for editing?

If you want to edit your video, AVI is the standard for Windows and MOV (or Quicktime) is the best choice for Macs. Whether you convert to MOV files or AVI files, keep in mind that each hour of digital video will take up approximately 13 GB of hard drive space (or roughly 4 data DVDs).

We are often asked if we can transfer tape to MPEG-2 instead of video to DV. We can, but we do not advise. MPEG-2 is a compressed file type, meaning that after it is edited, it usually has to be re-compressed – which results in a degradation of the video quality. MPEG-2 is also not a format that works well in most mainstream editing programs.

If you want to edit video, AVI or MOV is far better choice. For more information on the editing downside of MPEG-2, check out our Video to Computer page.
