    Video


    Hello,
    Many years ago, I bought a movie camera, it was a "Fujica - single-8", could load a film cassette lasts for about 5 minutes.
    Read the instructions, had some explanations in the store, and when our first daughter was born, started filming. The cassettes were sent a broad for processing. We could watch the 'movie' with a movie projector. The results were not satispactory, but thats what I got. Over the years I continued to use the movie camera, and each film was glued to the previous and so on. Then the movie projector broke, there were no parts to repair, so I started to use a video camera.
    The film reel forgotten. When doing some house cleaning I found the film reel, gave it to a lab to make a video out of the film.
    The resulst were three disks, one has two 'avi.m2v' files,(playable in a home dvd plyer), the others are the same but in dvd format 'vob' files. One is 18 minutes, the other is 34 minutes
    Now I want to add some comments to the start of the movie - not subtitles, just at the begining.
    I have on my pc some video tools: "Video pad video editor", "Format factory", "Hand brake", and "Dvd Styler".
    The comments I want to make on a short slideshow and insert it at the begining of the dvd's.
    May be add some background music.
    My guess is that some how I have to transfer the movies onto my pc.
    Well, this is the story, these movies (cannot repair anything) are family history and want to give them some day to my daughters and grandsons.
    I would like to have some ideas where to start and how to..
    Answers will be appreciated
    Thanks

    If I were you, the first thing I would do with these videos is to put them onto a hard drive. In fact, if these were my videos I would put them on several hard drives.

    As far as software for your project, I own and have used PhotoStage SlideShow. It is easy to use and will accomplish exactly what you want.

    But please do not wait, back up those videos right away.

    And you already have the best tool to hand to rip the videos from the one with 'vob format' (ie. it's a standard video DVD). The tool to use is Handbrake.

    Say you have a film on DVD, but you want to watch it on your phone, tablet, somewhere else. You can "rip" that DVD—or turn it into a video file on your computer—to play it wherever you want. Here's how to do it.

    One easy to use video editor used to be supplied by Microsoft with XP, then W7 - Windows Movie Maker. It's not package with any OS these days, but the last version was included in the Window Essentials 2012 suite, still available direct from Microsoft (but not for much longer - end of support is 2017).

    There are much better and more sophisticated video editors out there, but Movie Maker is simple and easy to understand, plus it runs fine on my Windows 10 v1607.
