Why Transfer With Us

Your photo albums, videotapes, movie film reels, photos, slides and negatives deteriorate over time as does equipment for playing analog media. YesVideo’s Home Movie and Photo Transfer Service converts aging media formats to digital files that you can store and back up on Google Photos and your hard drive. USBs are viewable on any device with a USB port, and files are easy to store, duplicate, and back up. DVDs are organized into menus and chapters that make it easy to find your favorite moments.

YesVideo is providing this service to make digitizing memories captured on older media convenient for you, especially if you don’t have the technical expertise, equipment, or time to transfer your own media to the latest formats.

Our technology creates a Digital Copy of your ordered items, accessible in your MemoryCloud account. You can also add the option to save your transfer order to Google Photos, where you can download, share, and store your old memories with your new ones. USBs (if selected) are viewable on any device with a USB port, and files are easy to store, duplicate, and back up. The DVDs (if selected) contain “Hollywood-style” features such as background music* and three one-minute music video highlights that are automatically created from scenes of your transferred footage. YesVideo’s goal is to make it easy for you to preserve and relive your favorite moments.
