    Question VHS to DVD/Digital format services

    Does anybody know of a shop in BKK that could transfer footage from a VHS videotape to a Quicktime file or DVD?

    I am also seeking the same service for audio cassette as I no longer have a cassette player and never did in Thailand.

    Cheers,

    TGS

    There are services in the UK that do it but I'm sure they will be bastard expensive in comparison.

    ^ Great to know that, I owe you a green... Perhaps if I red Butterfly I will get reloaded?

    One more thing, do they just transfer to DVD or can they make a Quicktime file and stick it on a dongle?

    you're the paying customer, they'll transfer to to whatever you want....

    wouldn't want to have a local shop do the QT file for me, too many chances they could fuck up

    best is DVD, available almost everywhere here

    From DVD, it's easy to transfer to AVI

    Unless you're a Mac user of course, then you're too dumb to use Google.

    There are services in the UK that do it but I'm sure they will be bastard expensive in comparison.
    I had a 'large format (professional, original content) beta tape' put on DVD at a phantip shop.
    They created 'click-able scenes' .. printed a color cover .. & made the analogue tape into a professional DVD.

    facing the escalator / back to front door .. a shop to the left on 4th or 5th.
    the shop is on the same end of the 'atrium' as the food court / front door .. from the ground floor atrium facing the escalator, it would be over your left shoulder

    1 room small shop has a red lettered sign on it's glass window .. the front door faces the aisle .. but the window w/ large red block lettered sign is visible from the ground floor ..

    they have a second 'office' not visible from the atrium on the same floor just down the aisle toward the front of the building / across the aisle. .. where the boss, computer geeks & hardware is.

    was not cheap .. more than buying a new non-bootleg DVD
    as long as there are tests, there will be prayers in public schools.

    I ended up going to Sunshine on the 4th floor of Fortune Town. They were 200 baht each but memory preservation is worth it.

    I had same problem wanting to convert VHS to DVD and no VHS recorder. After months of looking got a top of the range Sony with all the bells and whistles in a Thai pawn shop. 2500 baht.
