Save Your Life - Before It\'s Too Late!

As we power into 2006, many people don't realise that many of their early digital, VHS-C and Video 8 tapes are slowly turning to mush. If you haven't started editing old family videos and copying them to DVD already, now is your last chance.

Over time, videotapes lose their ability to glide smoothly through a video machine. They become 'sticky', and start leaving residues along the tape path.

The result on screen is 'drop outs'. For analogue, this
is streaky lines, and for digital, it is 'blockiness' and audio drop outs.

Eventually, they won't play at all.

Freevideohelper.org is a site for ordinary people, where the technical side of video making is set aside to help home users deal with video making problems.

The Weekly Video Helper newsletter is divided into three sections, every issue:
1) ASSEMBLY - Editing Your Home Videos
2) COVERAGE - Using Your Camcorder
3) TECHNICALS - For Those Who Have To Know Why!
[Footnotes explaining key words and phrases that home users may not understand]

It's a brief, easy read designed to motivate people to success and preservation of the most precious moments of their lives - before it's too late!
