Hi. I am curious about this. I know VHS and VCRs are no longer being commercially produced, and video rental stores are rare. I assume whatever video stores are left still carry VHS tapes in them for rental and/or sale.
I know people would transfer what's on VHS tapes, laserdiscs, Blu ray, etc. to video sharing sites- YouTube, Metacafe, Dailymotion, etc.
How are people uploading movies, TV shows, ads, music videos, etc., without using VHS and VCRs and other old video and media formats and tech?
I am including current pieces of entertainment and media.
Are people making such recordings and uploading them using DVRs?
How are people making videos in which they record and show pics of record and/or cassette tape and/or CD covers set to music and showcasing them on video sharing sites?
How are people making videos of radio recordings to be showcased on video sharing sites? Or videos of any kind of audio recordings to be showcased on video sharing sites?
How are people making video showcases of comic panels?
I know people can record video these days using smartphones and whatever digital devices they have.
Are people still using old-fashioned video cameras? I know digital cameras are being used.
Are people still using old-fashioned tape recorders?
I don't know too much about current tech but I would like to know how this is done.
Similarly, there is software that would rip video and audio from DVD, CD-ROMs, and Blu-Rays.
Much of this technology has been publicly available since at least the mid 2000s.
People and filmmakers are still using film and older cameras to produce films. Director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Dunkirk) is possibly most famous advocate of using old fashioned film.
I'm pretty sure that some people are using older cameras to upload videos online.
However, that would involve more hardware, time, and money to do so on a regular basis. Most people just film and upload using only their phones.
Director Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's 11) made a psychological thriller film, Unsane, using just an iPhone.
