Golden Videos is a video capture tool for VHS tapes. If you can connect your aging VHS player into your computer, you can use this application to create digital copies of your VHS tapes. Golden Videos detects video capture devices installed on your system and it allows you to choose one of them to record your videos from.

The application has a few image restoration features that should improve the quality of your analog videos once you make them digital. You can also add a few effects to your videos before you capture the video. There are several output options. You can either create a video file from your VHS tape or export it to a DVD disc. Or, you can upload the files to YouTube. Golden Videos can download a video converter on demand and convert your files for playback on a number of other devices as well.

I like that this application has help on every step of the process. The first window, where you select your devices, has a list of recommended troubleshooting steps along with a list of USB devices that you can purchase, which have been tested to work well with Golden Videos. Also, you don't need to know anything about video formats or codecs; the application takes you through a wizard that guides you step by step.
