What is the best way to transfer a VHS to digital?

Thumbtack Editors

The best way to transfer your VHS to a digital file is to ask for a professional’s help. You can DIY this project, but you’ll need:

  • An old VHS player (or buy a new one)
  • An analog converter for your computer
  • A computer with a DVD drive (or DVD attachment)
  • An external hard drive

If you don’t have the proper equipment and don’t want to go through all of the steps, find a video transfer service on Thumbtack.
