Time Capsule - Media Type - Last for 20 Years
Posted on 2011-04-19
I need to submit something for my Neices 1st birthday, as a time capsule she will likely open in 20 years. I want to include some video, music, and pictures. So that brings up two main questions for me.
1. What files types will stand the test of time? Although I can always include some codecs, etc, whatever I can find.
2. Most importanly, what Media Type should I use? I am thinking maybe DVD would be the best, and put everything in the format of a slideshow with DVD Maker. Currently I can still buy a VHS, which is 30 year old tech, so i assume in 20 years one could find, at least at a collectible store, a dvd player.
What you are thoughts? reasoning?
