DVDs were great for watching on your TV...in 2009.

But in 2019, DVDs have serious drawbacks.

INCONVENIENT

Video on a DVD is locked on the disc. You can't share it, you can't edit it - you can't do anything except watch it. And that's not surprising, given that DVDs were invented in the mid-90s, long before we began editing in iMovie and sharing on YouTube.

FRAGILE

DVDs are better than film or tapes, but they can still get scratched, cracked, or broken. A DVD's longevity also depends on how well the disc was manufactured - and there's a wide range of quality out there. Bottom line: you don't know how long your DVD will last even if you take perfect care of it.

PLAYER-DEPENDENT

A DVD relies upon a DVD player. But in 2019, companies like Samsung have stopped producing DVD players and most laptop computers don't have optical drives. Every year, the world will have fewer and fewer ways to play DVDs.

Now consider these stats about DVDs:

DVD usage statistic 1

Percentage of Americans who have a DVD player
(drops 6% each year*)

DVD usage statistic 2

Minutes a day the average adult watches a DVD*

DVD usage statistic 3

Given the fact that DVDs will soon be obsolete...
shouldn't you do something about yours?

Relax! You've found the solution!

"Shouldn't I just transfer my video tape again?"

You could - but converting your DVDs to digital at Timeless DVD actually gives you more options than re-transferring your videotape or film reel.
Here's how our DVD conversion service compares to videotape transfer at the superstores and video transfer services.

As you can see above, converting your DVD instead of your original tape or film reel is cheaper. But there are more good reasons converting your DVD is the better choice:

  • Avoid any damage to the original tape or film. Videotapes and film reels are all decaying. Some are brittle due to damage by VCRs or projectors, storage in humid attics or basements, or simply age. Whenever you play a tape or film, it's possible that it may rip or break. We offer an easy way to obtain a video file of your recording without stressing the original tape or reel again.
  • Your original tape or film stays with you - the safest place for it! Why take the risk of shipping it to a company again?
  • If you simply want to share videos online or preserve your DVDs, there's no good reason to work from the original tape or film. It's unlikely you will see any difference between a digital file converted from your DVD and a file transferred from the original tape or reel. But don't take our word for it: request our sample files and compare our files for yourself.

Preserve your video, forever

The video on your DVD is not safe. No matter what that transfer service told you, your DVD will not last for "one hundred years." Scratches, cracks,and simple deterioration all affect DVD discs. But we can transfer your video from your DVD, which means you can:

  • Preserve the video and the DVD's data in 100% original quality
  • Copy it onto as many computers and hard drives as you like
  • Re-burn it onto as many new DVDs as you like
  • Ensure your DVD copy is protected forever

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the quality of a DVD conversion?

Honestly, pretty darn good - but don't take our word for it. Check out the samples below. All videos are from real customers' home video DVDs, converted to MP4 format, and uploaded to YouTube. For even better examples (that bypass YouTube's processing), request our sample files.

How do I know your files will work for me?

We provide samples of all our file types so you can try them out on your computer, phone, tablet, or software, or via a USB drive connected to your smart TV, streaming box, or digital media device. Just visit our Contact page to request the files.

Is this legal?

Yes! DVDs that were created from home video tapes or film by Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Costco, Sam's Club, iMemories, YesVideo, Southtree, Legacybox, drugstore services, big box stores, your local video shop, or friendly transfer geek are NOT copy protected. You can check any of these companies' FAQ and terms of use pages. Most clearly state that customers are free to make copies of their DVDs and that no copy protection exists on the discs.

What kinds of DVDs can Timeless DVD convert?

We can convert any non-copyrighted DVD, including any DVD that is comprised of home videos. That includes any DVD that was transferred by the large transfer companies, such as Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Costco, Sam's Club, YesVideo, iMemories, Southtree, Legacybox, drugstore services, big box stores, or your local video shop. Most of these services are very careful to not transfer copyrighted content, so they're OK for us as well.

Are there any kinds of DVDs that Timeless DVD can't convert?

We absolutely, positively DO NOT accept copyrighted DVDs of any kind. That includes any DVD movie or TV shows purchased in a store that are in your movie library. We cannot convert copyrighted DVDs because doing so breaks DRM (Digital Rights Management), the digital copy protection present on most DVDs, which is illegal. (If the law changes, as it did years ago for CDs, we'll let you know!) Because of DRM, Timeless DVD can ONLY convert DVDs that are not copyrighted or copy-protected.
We also do not currently convert PAL or otherwise non-NTSC video (foreign formats) or Blu Ray discs. Finally, we retain the right to refuse, at our discretion, to convert home video DVDs that are explicit or objectionable.

How do I watch my DVDs digitally on my TV?

First, order MKVs or ISO files. We are currently working on a series of blog posts that address all the ways you can set this up. It's our passion project! Stay tuned!

What file type should I order?

Figure out what you want to do with your DVD's video. Do you want to share it online? Edit it? Watch it on your TV digitally? Or simply ensure it's preserved for the future? Answering that question will determine which file type is best for you. You can also read extensive information on our Order page regarding file types (expand the "How do I pick the right file type?" section).

Why are MP4s only listed for sharing? I can watch them on my TV too.

Many file types have crossover purposes. Yes, an MP4 can also be watched easily through many devices. However, unlike the file types we recommend for watching, an MP4 is compressed video - it is not the original DVD quality. MP4 was developed as an online file type, and that's how we recommend you use it. We recommend file types based on their best use, not their only use. If you want MP4s for watching on your TV instead of the MKV or ISO file types, we won't stop you!
