Got tapes digitalized and quality is worse now

So I found an old tape in an old camcorder that had my 7th grade talent show on it. I viewed it on the camcorder and the quality seemed really good considering it’s been in there for probably about 15 years or so. I sent it off to get digitized and got a USB and DVD for it and the quality seems worse than I remember when I viewed it on the camcorder. I’m unsure of the technical term, but there were now screen fuzzies pulling from one side of the screen to the other all over the entire video instead of just little bits at the edges like I remember. Unfortunately I already gave the camcorder back to my dad and he’s about 5 hours away so I can’t just go try it back in the camcorder. I’m not sure if maybe it’s just cause it’s a bigger screen or I’m remembering it wrong or something, but I was really disappointed by the quality of the DVD. I even showed my dad a short clip (he was there when I watched it in the camcorder) and he agreed it was worse…any suggestions on how to move forward?

  1. >7th grade talent show…

    Right right, and totally not the tapes of tracilords u had BACK IN 7th grade

  2. Sounds like a crappy conversion done by a company that has no idea what they are doing.

    All I can suggest is get another conversion done, by someone else. If that turns out better, challenge the original conversion company for a refund.

  3. This is the be all end all answer to your question: https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/j4rwk1/the_how_do_i_digitizetransfercapture_video_tapes/

    You’ll get a lot of responses on this because it’s asked three times a week and everyone has different ideas on how to do it “right.” But following that guide, searching this sub for past posts, and hitting up the DigitalFAQ forums is where you can really learn how to do this. [This is what I do for what it’s worth](https://www.reddit.com/r/DataHoarder/comments/g2oin7/772_gigs_into_my_quarantine_activity/fnmo2hz/), though it’s not perfect.

    Some things to start with, find out what format your tape is. Is it a VHS, VHS-C, or Video8/Hi8/Digital8? Buy the appropriate deck for it off eBay. Pick up an Elgato USB capture device or appropriate capture card (avoid cheap stuff unless it’s used), and stream it in to your PC with AmarecTV or VirtualDub. Then convert and de-interlace accordingly. Lots of good advice in that first main thread. Check it out and get that tape digitized right! A lot of big box digitizing places do the absolute worst job possible so you could probably get much better results.

  4. There’s also the question of the VHS player being of good quality.

    Analog capture is VERY picky, the player must be a good one.

  5. Are you able to post a short clip of the digital transfer? I do tape transfers for a living so would be happy to give my opinion on the quality

  6. > there were now screen fuzzies pulling from one side of the screen to the other all over the entire video

    Those might be timebase errors. The circuitry in CRTs tend to be more tolerant of them than many capture cards, so you’ll need a good VCR plus an external TBC to get a good capture…assuming the camcorder itself wasn’t misaligned, in which case you’ll probably want to capture using the original camcorder.

    Is the videotape VHS-C or 8mm?

  7. > I’m not sure if maybe it’s just cause it’s a bigger screen

    This will be the reason. If you take the digital video and open it in a media player on your PC, and shrink the window down to the size of the camcorder, it will look better.

    There are AI packages that can upscale video and give a better outcome, but there’s limits.

    If you’re watching the DVD on a big screen, all those defects are amplified. Sadly, there’s not much you can do.

    Also, why do you have to be remembering? Surely you got your original tape back?

  8. Digitizing a VHS tape with good quality results is somewhere between difficult and impossible. The quality on the original tape is likely on the bad side. Old style CRT screens were pretty low resolution, so the interlacing and crushed color range were less noticable. When digitized and viewed on modern screens, it almost always looks worse than you remember. Here’s an explanation and a demonstration by a YouTuber that does this kind of thing. https://youtu.be/ZC5Zr3NC2PY
