I have acquired a little tool to convert VHS to digital. So on with the testing.

I now have a digital copy of the Boxing Day Premiere of the Return of the Jedi presented by Thames television (remember them?). What would be the best way of sharing this, on youtube its likely to get pulled for copyright. Dropbox or something?

Oooh, congrats on completing the transfer. Any plans on doing ANH?
You're probably right about avoiding YouTube and Vimeo. High chance of being blocked, I would have thought.
I'm no expert, but there seems to be a bewildering choice of file sharing apps out there. Dropbox, Rapidshare etc. MediaFire seems popular.

What video transfer software/hardware did you use?
I've got a few VHS/Betamax tapes that need digitising.

I also have ANH done, the upload rate to dropbox currently is terrible, so when they are done I'll post links. They will be raw rips with no title cards or chapters, just like the old vhs days, it just seems right that way.

Just ANH at the moment, they are large files as they are DVD quality (they are off VHS masters don't forget). Dropbox put a limit on the size of your files unless you pay them money.
