    Blu ray

    HD-DVD is a dead format I believe.

    Or you could burn the data to the DVD, it just wouldn't be playable in a DVD player. Or just stream it from your computer. Be sure to back it up if you care about the video though.

    Blu-Ray burners are as low as $75 these days. If you buy a new desktop, add one to it.

    Except Betamax grew up and gave offsprings (Betacam, BetacamSP, BetacamSX, Digital Betacam, HDCAM) who are still alive today. HD DVD was stillborn.
