Our approach to hosting the video files from your converted film and videos is simple. We aren't going try to reinvent the wheel. There are many established online video sharing sites. The majority of them are run by well known companies that have great quality, are free, secure, and easy to use. Most of them have excellent control of privacy settings allowing you to show the videos to only those that you specify. So, there really is no point to add an additional service and an additional cost. This is one of the reasons that we are able to offer great quality digitizing services at low prices. We cut out the redundant services and the fluff that others build into their prices or charge extra for.
One of the unfortunate things about home movies is that people tend to view them once and then leave them on film or tape to collect dust. Where is the fun in that? One of our goals is to help you get those cherished memories into a format that can be easily shared with family and friends. The DVD that you receive when your films and videos are done being converted has files on it that are ready to upload to most of the best family and sharing sites. Further down the page you will find our list of resources for sharing with notes on each website. These sites generally allow you register for free, upload your videos, set privacy, and share via email invite. The majority of these sites follow the same process for sharing your video and images.
We realize that many people have not used services like Vimeo and just need to get their video up on the internet to share with their family and friends. If you would like to have us upload your video or images to a public or private sharing site just let us know prior to the completion of your job. We will upload the video and / or images to the appropriate website and contact you with all of the necessary information for accessing them.
