Video to DVD

I have an old wedding video of my uncle and aunt that I want to switch over to DVD.

I know of a place at Spadina and King that does this, but I think it costs around $1 a minute, and it's about 70 minutes long.

Anyone have any idea where I can get this done cheaper?

Thanks

I'll wager someone on Tribe has a DVD-R and would do it for much less than 1$ a minute. Its not a very hard process.

Well I didn't think it was a hard process :)

But I didn't want to deal with all the replies that said "Why don't you just pay for it to be done?"

Now I guess I'll have to deal with the opposite....unless someone has useful info about a different place to get this done.

OR wants to do it for me...I'll give you some cash for your time.

edit: i should probably cross-post this in the buy/sell/rent forum

well i would maybe, except that that's the only video i really own

see i plan on giving this to my aunt and uncle as a gift, and if i OWN a dvd burner all my relatives will send me all their crap to burn

i'd rather pay now than pay later :D

re: soundstream...so true. but i was thinking it could be done via cables and vcr - just wishful thinking i guess :)

At minimum to do this process, she would need...a quality VCR, an analogue capture device, capture software, and a DVD burner.

So it's gonna be a lot more than $90!

Joe to the rescue!

better yet, give me the tape.. I'll do it for you at the studio... I can use my cd-rw to create you a vcd that will play in a dvd player.

f.o.c.

no worries Sally.

Should have asked me.

I have a video card that can capture in put from a VCR (or any input actually), save it in DVD format, and then burn it to a DVD (down with crappy VCDs! ;)). But it looks like you have solved the problem already as I just noticed this thread now.

Cheers ... Ian :)

you need to video capture it then burn it.

My friend does this at work.

you need more equip than just a dvd burner.
