What happens if you make a copy of a copy of a copy (and so on) of a VHS tape? This experiment shows how the quality degrades with every generation.

The copying was done using two PAL VCRs in SP mode.

This is fascinating – I knew something happened to VHS’ with usage and time but I had no idea what exactly happened when you copied a VHS time and time again. Thanks go to YouTube user m1cke1983 for actually doing this and then posting the result on YouTube for all to see!
