- record the tape onto dvd - using the original camera to play the tape and a sony dvd recorder
- copy the video-ts files from the dvd to pc
- convert the video-ts files to mp4 format using handbrake.
Before we get too far into this (we have well over 100 tapes), I'm keen to know what the potential pitfalls are and whether there is a better way.
Also the process takes an age to complete - although we do end up with three copies.
