Hallo,
I have been wondering whether or not Videos have become redundant these days?
“In the old days” I collected some favourite cheer-up-films on Video to watch on days,
when my health was very poorly and, whilst hoping for better days, I watched a little “cheer-up” ...
... Now, with the available huge film-collection on “you-tube”,
I wonder whether or not it would be a little hasty to “get rid” of those videos?
What do you think?
Many thanks for your thoughts,
Kristina. :grouphug;

We utilize our library for current videos and don't really watch older movies (but could if we wanted to).  That being said if you have movies that make you feel good, I'd keep them around as long as the DVD/VCR player keeps going and is still plugged into the TV.  You never know when your internet will go out for a week and not get fixed (since TV/internet providers are so sketchy)...

I travel with my wife as a hobby and am on Dialysis, recent trips include Brussels.  We return to South Africa (Cape Town) in November 2016. I've also visited a few other US DaVita centers and have had good experiences.

I still owe a write-up for Montreal for October 2016.

I agree with iolaire, you never know when your computer might crash. You might also want to keep videos around for the occasional "old fashioned movie night" with your husband...you can sit back together and get all warm and cozy with a blanket and a treat and pop in one of your old favorite movies. Make it into a "date night" and have some fun!

There are some programs and movies if you did not get them on DVD you will never see them again.
I love Babylon5 and if I did not have it on DVDs I would not get to enjoy it.
I did get rid of a vast VHS collection, as I have updated a lot of movies to DVD format.

I am a Apple user.  I buy my movies from iTunes and they for the most part are available on the iCloud.  I  keep a copy on my iMac.

Guess I really showed my age and the fact that I'm not high-tech when I went to a store and asked where their music cassettes were. With a smirk on his face and out loud mind you, the young employee said "Ma'am, we don't even sell those anymore!"  :shy;

Many thanks for your kind thoughts kitkatz, Michael Murphy and PrimeTimer.
... Hello kitkatz, I have tried to update videos to DVD format, but somehow the DVD's did not "take on" the film
and obviously I made a mistake somewhere, perhaps I had the wrong "updater" or the wrong DVD ...
... But I shall try again...
... Hello Michael, I have not yet progressed to iTunes, iCloud and iMAc and I shall try to give it a go in the future ...
... Hello PrimeTimer, please be assured that you are not alone there and I am certainly not "high-tech" either ...
... and I have also come across moments when "my age"  seems to show up a little...
Many thanks again from Kristina. :grouphug;
