  • Does anyone still use or buy VHS

    I have around 100 VHS tapes. Should I even bother to list them? Does anyone still use and buy VHS?

    Thanks.

        Certain rare titles can go for hundreds of pounds, but run-of-the-mill stuff is landfill, alas.

            Totally agree. When I was a VHS seller I only listed those made by small production companies.

            My most popular were videos where the footage never made it to DVD or TV and footy videos which I sold to people in Europe.

            My best tip is to dump any movie videos and check the prices of any others on 'the river' to see which are collectible.

              I have a combo VHS/DVD player, I've had it a few years now, works great for playing my VHS collection of comedy and classic films, a lot better than the 'puter as I can play my UK DVDs on it, unlike the 'puter that refuses to recognize them.

              So, to answer your question, yes, I buy VHS tapes (mostly classic films and comedies) if/when I can get a good deal on them.

              Best wishes for many sales to all,

                    Even the VHS which are unusual are difficult to sell because of the high cost of postage.

                    I was told that if you take the tape out and shred it, it biodegrades and is a good mulch for tomatoes. It might have been a windup.

                      I'm not sure why a video worth 200 plus would refuse to sell because of the cost of postage? You might mean less unusual than I do.

                        That's not true in my experience. I have sold ABFab videos to people in America and they didn't seem to have a problem paying 5+ for shipping.

                          I still buy videos if the title is one that I want to buy, haven't already got in my collection or its one that I did have, still want to have but have had to loose due to change in circumstances.

                            depends, I have had a few, mainly films like Mishima A Life In Four Chapters, and the Babycart films and things like that, which have sold, but these are rare films with cult followings. In general I dont think many people bother with VHS tapes any more
