YesVideo MemorySafe

YesVideo Goody Bag

A couple weeks ago I shared my adventures touring YesVideo’s headquarters.

Today, I want to share more about what they offer, and a few videos of my own.

So, what can you do with all the video and photo memories you’ve stored?

You can do a straight transfer. You send in your box of memories. They send it back, plus all the memories stored on a DVD.

You can transfer online. If you’re like me, you probably have a lot of raw footage that just doesn’t need to be preserved. So I gave them my tapes and they transferred them online, where I can access, and edit, and choose how to design my DVDs. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on my own screening room code to check out the videos.

Fair disclosure, they did have some issues getting me access into my YesVideo MemorySafe account. There was a bit of internal miscommunication with how my order was created, but they fixed it for me.

Once everything is transferred online, you receive your own YesVideo MemorySafe screening room. This is where you can access your own videos, edit, create, and share them. Once I received my password, I was good to go.

Now there is a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to use the editing tools, and how to put clips together. I contacted their customer service via email, and they were always able to help me get what I needed done. In fact, I’m sure they could’ve easily been irritated by my incessant questions, but they were always prompt, professional, and polite.

With your videos transferred online. You can have access to your videos online, free, for 90 days. This means you can share them with your friends, family, and strangers over the Internet. Cool. However, I do wish that YesVideo would make this sharing capability more like YouTube. Right now any YesVideo clips you share takes you back to their site, and it’s not available indefinitely, unless you pay a subscription fee. Paying that subscription fee feels like you don’t own your own content, with the inability to share freely, for free. In a world of YouTube, and easy, free shares, I’m hoping that this will be a change YesVideo will make.

YesVideo also transfers old film, slides, photographs, and will even take your old photo albums, scrapbooks and completely digitize them. So you can preserve those memories digitally, and share them online. In fact, one of their newest services is very exciting. They can take entire photo albums, and scrapbooks, and digitize them for you. Do you know what this means? It means all that hard work can be shared. It means that you can make one scrapbook and give it to everyone in your family, or group of friends. I can’t wait to try it.
