I always play the "Day You Were Born" video for my kids on their birthday, which is tomorrow (their 14th), and we laugh about what screamers they were, how unrecognizable I was, and we all go "Awwwwwwww" when the scenes of 4-yr old Eric holding them and expertly feeding them a bottle and/or locating the pacifier flash on the screen.
Yes, I had them when I was 12 :-)
It's on one of those full-size VHS cassettes and I keep a VCR solely for the purpose of watching this annual video.
How can I get it this to my computer? Can I somehow get it to my video camera, THEN to my computer? Short of setting up the camera to tape the video as it is playing, I don't know how to accomplish this.
I know I can pay the guy down in the valley to do it for $20, but with all the cables and equipment I have laying around here, certainly there is SOME way I can accomplish this myself!!
