Online Stashing, Sharing of Videos

StashSpace to Take Full Length Online Video Editing to the Masses

TechCrunch - October 2, 2006

Online video storage, sharing, editing and management service StashSpace will make a full public launch and media press on Wednesday. Unlike the many services we see focused on short form video, such as Jumpcut (a Yahoo! acquisition) for editing and VideoEgg for online video capture, StashSpace lets users work with long movies in the browser. It’s easy to use, has a good pricing structure and targets a clear pain point in a large market. Shutterfly’s $87 million IPO last week was further evidence that easy online multimedia storage for non technical users is a market ready to take flight.

The Business of Memory: Companies take different approaches when going digital with home movies

San Francisco Chronicle - August 20, 2006

Almost every household with children has one -- a shelf filled with boxes of old home videos or even more-ancient home movies. The movies gather dust because no one has reel-to-reel projectors anymore. The videos get played occasionally but gradually degrade with time. The solution? Transfer those family memories to digital format for better preservation and easier viewing.

Pacific Northwest Magazine, August 13, 2006

Automatic Editing for the People

HUB Canada - August 12, 2005

Video is almost always edited before it is shared with anyone. That's according to our very informal survey, in which readers were asked if they like to go "raw" by sharing, screening or selling unedited video (raw footage on a camera tape. Many of you said there was a ton of video footage in the closet, perhaps never to see the light of day, because it needs video editing. But we all know that sorting through hours of videotape can be a tedious and time-consuming process.

High Tech Home Movies can Link Families, Military

Santa Barbara News Press - May 2, 2005
Being deployed to war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan is difficult -- yet largely unavoidable -- for many soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Not being able to see friends and family for up to a year adds to their stress, including the dozens from the Central Coast now serving in battle areas overseas.


With that in mind, a Washington state company called HomeMovie.Com has created "Operation Enduring Love," which allows people to create a 30-minute video that will be converted into a format that military members can watch over the Internet. The streaming video can be viewed for up to a year, as many times as they'd like.

St. Petersburg Times - March 14, 2005

A little time with family and friends can mean a lot for military personnel, especially if they're stationed in Afghanistan or Iraq.

Video Offers Soldiers Glimpses from Home

The Bayonet - March 11, 2005

"I'm going to talk to daddy," said Avery Pierce, 2, as her mother, Courtney, pulled out a video camera. "She misses him," Courtney said. "She cries for him a lot now, especially at night when she's really tired." 


Courtney, Avery and baby sister Abby are about to make a video for 2nd Lt. Chris Pierce, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 36th Engineer Group. He deployed Jan. 7 from Doughboy Stadium for a yearlong deployment to Iraq. "He'll be really excited to get this, because he keeps bugging me to send him short videos over the Web cam, but I can't get it to work," Courtney said. "Since my kids can't write, they can show off for their dad on the video."

HomeMovie.Com Partners with WeddingChannel.com to Promote Videographers to Brides

Event DV Magazine - March 7, 2005

HomeMovie.com is an online service that provides a way for consumers to preserve, manage, and distribute their old home movies before they fade away to static on antiquated tapes. "We initially started our business to bring the benefits of our services to people for their home movies," says John Larsen, HomeMovie.com's CEO. But they discovered quickly that the consumer market wasn't a particularly good fit for their services. "They weren't really ready for streaming or DVD."

HomeMovie.Com Streams Home Movies for Families of Troops Overseas

Streaming Media Magazine - February 23, 2005

Staying in touch with friends and family is a constant struggle for soldiers, especially those stationed on the battlefield in hotspots like Iraq and Afghanistan.  While long-distance phone cards are standard issue, local long-distance providers often charge exorbitant connection fees, making phone calls to the U.S. prohibitively expensive.  But even when phone calls are priced more reasonable, audio-only communication only goes so far in keeping families in touch, especially when there are children involved.

For Neglected Video, A Hollywood Touch

New York Times - September 30, 2004

As home video accumulates, many prolific tapers are pondering a close-to-home variation of the old Zen brainteaser. They have acquired a trove of family scenes, but are daunted by the tedium and time involved in playing it all back. After all, searching for the good parts means sitting through the boring ones, too. Other sections may be marred by camera shake, exposure problems or wind gusts thundering into the microphone. But just letting the tapes pile up won't do either; home movies that are neither viewed nor inventoried can be said not to exist at all.

Preserving Your Tapes on DVD

Camcorder and Computer Video - February 12, 2003

Video is great! -- Especially for capturing and sharing video of important events. In our personal lives, we preserve precious moments with families and friends. And for business, we record and distribute important presentations. But all those great moments are wound up on reels of tape: you need to load them into a player even to see what's on them, and all that shuttling through the tape makes finding the good stuff slow and irritating. Even worse, tapes are relative fragile, as they wear out and degrade over time, and they lose quality if you make copies to try to preserve or share them.

Digitize Your Family's Memories

Parade Magazine - November 24, 2002

Don't let time destroy your old VHS or Super-8 home movies. Here are ways to digitize your family's memories.


With the Rise of DVDs, It's Transfer Time Again

The Washington Post - June 30, 2003

Phillip Grace's childhood was chronicled in three-minute snippets on itty-bitty rolls of film, kept in dozens of metal film cans, then crammed into his closets to collect dust -- until the summer he broke his ankle. That's when boredom drove him to unearth the films his parents had lovingly created with their 16mm movie camera, starting with his sixth-birthday party.


VHS to DVD: Convert Now

Newsweek - May 20, 2003

What’s to love about videotapes? They take up shelf space, the picture gets grainy after multiple playbacks and they can fade to black after a decade or two. For keepsake videos like a school play or family trip, you might want a better archive—like DVDs. Converting analog video into digital data used to be for pros only, but new services and better technology make it easy..


Saved Again: Those Memories Caught on VHS Tape Will Last Longer if Transferred to DVDs

Dallas Morning News - February 7, 2002

You have two choices for that wedding video sitting in the bookcase: Convert it to DVD or kiss it goodbye. VHS tapes can begin fading to black in less than 15 years, depending on how they are stored. Simply running the same tape 50 times through a videocassette recorder can irrevocably harm a home movie's quality. And if the picture doesn't fade, chances are the tape itself will gradually turn brittle and break.
