Frequently Asked Questions
You can upload, organize, and share videos in your FOREVER Account just like photos, print products, and documents.
Once you have purchased a FOREVER Storage Account, all videos, photos, and documents you upload will be guaranteed for your lifetime plus 100 years. Over time, file formats may become obsolete and require your video to be migrated to modern standard formats so they can continue to be shared, viewed, and enjoyed. We will perform this migration when, in our professional judgement, a video can no longer be viewed or played on commonly available devices.
You can upload videos from your mobile device to your FOREVER Account just like photos. Furthermore, you can choose to include or exclude videos when you back up or auto sync your mobile device.
You can share videos just like you would photos, documents, and print projects. Use a share link to share a single file, a group of files, an Album, or a Tag. You can also share Albums with Friends and Family or make them Public.
If you have a Premium Video Plan, you can watch your videos in Full HD quality on modern devices and web browsers at any time right in your FOREVER Account.
If you do not have a Premium Video Plan, you can download your videos and watch them offline using your computer’s available software.
With a Premium Video Plan, you and your loved ones will experience the joy of reliving your video memories in the Full HD quality that they deserve. You and anyone you share your videos with can watch them over and over again in FOREVER on any computer, smartphone, or tablet, at any time.
This is made possible by converting your videos to a modern, industry-standard format that is optimized for both long-term storage AND online viewing. This conversion process creates a widely compatible, flexible, sustainable, and efficient file that is used by leading broadcast, media, and cable providers (H.264 .mp4 1080p 30fps). The broadcast industry has increasingly embraced this format because it preserves the resolution of the original file, while greatly improving the performance of the transmitted file to a level ideally suited for viewing and sharing online.
We believe this format is currently the best format for saving, sharing, and viewing your videos. That’s why we use this same digital format when we convert old video tapes and film reels through our Media Conversion Services. It is also the format we use to preserve and share all of our own precious family videos!
We recommend the Premium Video Plan to everyone who wants to get the most out of their video memories by saving, sharing, and viewing them online. However, if your goal is simply to archive the original videos at FOREVER and watch them occasionally, you can do that without the Premium Video Plan. It’s your choice.
Yes. If you have a Premium Video Plan, and share your videos with others, they will also be able to watch them in FOREVER on any computer, smartphone, or tablet, at any time, even if they do not have a Premium Video Plan of their own. If another person downloads the videos you shared with them and saves them to their own FOREVER Library, they will need a Premium Video Plan to watch them from their own account.
If you do not have a Premium Video Plan, and share your videos with others, they can download your videos and watch them offline using their computer's available software. Or, if they have a Premium Video Plan, they can download the videos to their own FOREVER Library, and watch them in FOREVER on any computer, smartphone, or tablet, at any time.
Optimizing videos for online viewing costs money, and not everyone wants to view their videos online. If you simply want to store your original video files with FOREVER and not watch online, then we offer that option at no additional cost. Eventually (in 10-20+ years) when, in our professional judgement, your video file formats are no longer viewable offline by available devices, we will migrate your videos to a new file format. Of course, you can always switch to the FOREVER Premium Video Plan so you can watch your videos online.
Yes. We guarantee that your videos will be saved for your lifetime plus 100 years, with a goal of many generations beyond. Over time, we will migrate your video to new file formats so they are always viewable.
You can certainly upload your videos to YouTube. But YouTube is not free. Users “pay” to watch their videos by giving up their privacy and digital rights and allowing their precious memories to be data mined and commercialized. If you stop using these so-called “free” sites, or otherwise cease to be valuable to them, they delete your precious memories.
At FOREVER, we do not sell or rent FOREVER Storage Owners’ personal information to third parties. We enable you to control what content you keep private, and what you choose to make public or share with others. And of course, with FOREVER’s unique business model and guarantee, your content (including your videos) is preserved for many decades to come.
The bottom line is that so-called “free” services do not preserve important memories in a way that ensures they are safe, secure and accessible for generations.
Yes. If you have an active FOREVER Premium Video Plan, you and anyone you share your videos with can watch all of them in FOREVER on any computer, smartphone, or tablet, at any time. The first time you play a video that had been uploaded prior to activating the Premium Video Plan, there may be a slight delay while we convert your video to a modern, industry-standard format that is optimized for both long-term video storage and online viewing. This delay will only occur the first time you watch that video in FOREVER.
You can cancel your FOREVER Premium Video Plan at any time, but you and anyone you share videos with will no longer be able to watch your videos in your FOREVER Account. You can still upload, organize, share, and download the videos in your FOREVER Account just like photos, print products, and documents. And watch them offline using your computer’s available software.
Yes. As part of our Conversion Service, we upload all videos that we digitize for you to your FOREVER Account. If you do not have enough storage for all of your converted content, a FOREVER Team Member will contact you and invite you to purchase additional storage. If you choose NOT to purchase additional storage, we will still save the videos associated with your order to a USB Flash Drive and send it to you. However, these videos will not be stored in FOREVER and are NOT subject to the FOREVER Guarantee, unless you subsequently upload them from your USB drive to a FOREVER Storage Account.
Yes. If you do not have a Premium Video Plan, you can download your videos – including the videos digitized through our Conversion Service – and watch them offline using your computer’s available software. However, you need to purchase a Premium Video Plan in order to watch your videos in FOREVER on any computer, smartphone, or tablet, at any time.
You can upload videos from your phone, tablet, or computer in the following formats only: .mp4, .avi, .mov, .mpg, .mpeg, .wmv, .mkv, .m4v, .mts, .mt2s.
Individual videos must be less than 4 GB in file size in order to upload. You may upload multiple videos at a time as well as upload videos and photos at the same time. If you have videos that are larger than 4 GB or need further help uploading videos, please contact us at 1-888-FOREVER (1-888-367-3837).
The FOREVER Mobile App will de-dup videos for you when you upload from your mobile device to your FOREVER Account (assuming they were already uploaded from the same mobile device). However, if you are using a web browser, FOREVER is not yet able to de-dup your videos during the upload process. We plan to bring that feature online in the near future.
No. In order to get your videos from Historian to your FOREVER Account, you must first export the videos from Historian to a folder on your computer. From that folder, you can upload videos to your FOREVER Account using FOREVER’s web uploader. We will improve Historian in the future so that it can upload videos directly to FOREVER. If you need help, just call us at 1-888-FOREVER (1-888-367-3837).
No. You must first download and save videos from Facebook and other social media sites to a folder on your computer. Then, from that folder, you can upload videos to your FOREVER Account using FOREVER’s web uploader. We will implement better ways to import videos from social media sites in the near future. Once again, If you need help, just give us a call at 1-888-FOREVER (1-888-367-3837).
