Good place to get super-8mm home movies put on DVDs in NYC?

Lots of home movies, some are super-8, some are tapes, some are mini-DV tapes, etc. I'd like to get them put on DVDs that I can then easily edit. I'm in Manhattan, NYC. thanks (oh a long time ago there was another question like this and somebody suggested a mail-order place, but I don't feel comfortable sending off my precious home movies from the 1950s etc. away)

Basic DVD/Blu-ray player?

Looking for a basic DVD + Blu-Ray player with HDMI. Doesn't need any kind of network streaming (TV and other devices handle that already). Ideally under $100. Am okay with buying used off craigslist or something if the model is known to be pretty reliable. Suggestions?

Can "Where Seconds Count" a REACT/Red Cross training video be seen online or otherwise found?

Someone I know who is a volunteer would like a copy of the REACT/Red Cross produced video "Where Seconds Count". He had been told he could view it online, but repeated online searches have failed to find it, and neither the Red Cross nor individual REACT organizations seem to be selling physical copies via their websites. I've been trying to help him find it, but have had no luck. Anybody? [more inside]

Optimize video playbook black (2006) MacBook

Black 2.0GHz MacBook (2GB memory) from 2006 -- it's been repurposed as a Netflix playback machine. I have it connected to a VGA adaptor to a 19" widescreen monitor and it plays back Netflix in a browser and we also watch DVDs on it, and we also play AVIs with VLC. The problem: video is just slightly choppy. Just choppy enough to be annoying. Tried Chrome and also Safari to do the playback. How can I squeeze more video performance from this laptop to avoid the slight choppiness? I have a feeling if I can improve it just slightly that would be a big win.

Quick program for saving internet video?

What is the *best* way to download video from Itunes and the internet onto a blank disc? About a year ago, someone showed me a program or application that easily and elegantly took selected parts of an internet video (and I think an Itunes TV show as well) and transformed it into something I could play on a DVD. This wasn't just a kind of dragging and clicking operation but a specific application or program that made it very neat and easy. I need to do this with a few clips for a small presentation.

Help me cut up a giant video clip - easily!

I ripped a DVD of music videos, and now have one giant .m4v file. What's the easiest way to cut it down to separate videos? I used handbrake to rip it, but the chapters don't correspond to the videos - there are intros, etc. that i don't want. I have access to iMovie and maybe Final Cut Express, but that seems like overkill. There's gotta be a simpler way, right?
