Hi all,

My parents have a ton of old VHS tapes that consist of home movies and their wedding video. As a birthday gift, I was hoping to get my mom an application so I could convert all of her VHS tapes to a digital format that I could save to my PC and also burn to DVD so that they will last beyond the life of the VHS tape. I did a quick search and saw a number of different applications available so I was hoping to get some recommendations on which applications work best, or if it would just be better to go to some kind of shop/service that does this for you?

As always, I appreciate your time and feedback. Thank you very much!!

It also takes a bit of hardware, as in a video capture device. RCA to USB.
Which generally comes with its own software.

Something like this:

I don't know about this particular one, but I've used similar things in the past.
