Opinion Poll:
VHS Tape, VCD, or DVD?

Belly dance video producers must decide whether to release their products on VHS tape, VCD, or DVD. Does it matter to you which they choose, or will you buy it regardless of which media is offered as long as you hear good things about the contents? Do you have the equipment to play both disk and tape?
