The Amiga video memory: Amigavideo.net
Amigavideo.net collects on its site any videotapes dedicated to the Amiga. Amigavideo wants to make available hours of videos to the Amiga community, "from TV commercials to boring 2-hour long tutorials, without forgetting the institutional films selling the machine as the 'most amazing' computer ever."

The first goal of this website is to gather as many Amiga related videos as possible, preferably in the best available quality. As Thierry further reports, many of the videos can also be found elsewhere. With Amigavideo.net one simply wants to increase the chances for the Amiga fan to find and watch the video he is looking for. Besides, so many websites have disappeared without a trace, Commodore Billboard or Back2roots come to mind.

Thierry was kind enough to tell us the following about the history of the project:
"The website has been officially launched on Oct 2017 (quick panel during AmigaON, an Amiga reunion that took place in Ontario, Canada) The first idea of this website surfaced around 2015 when my pile of Amiga VHS tapes was getting bigger and bigger. I'm a big Amiga fan/user (since...1990) and also Cinema/AudioVisual enthusiast, the reason of my "attraction" to everything involving Amiga and Video.

The main reason was to "share" those tapes instead of just keeping it in a storage and with a "better" interface than YouTube or etc (where pretty much all the videos already are...but good luck to find anything if you don't know the exact name of the video...

Recently, the whole collection has been upscaled to 720/60p with noise reduction....insanely long process but I'm very happy with the result."

A future step would be to obtain master copies (also on loan) and preserve them (at least digitally) in as future-proof a state as possible. (dr)
