    Best answer: Define "best".

    Assuming your definition includes, "that which will be around to use/view when my grandchildren are ready to see the home video", then think about what's happened in the past, first. In the mid-20th century (1960s through 1970s) 8mm film was popular even with no audio. In the later part of the 20th century, analog video (Beta, VHS, 8mm, Hi8) was popular. Processes to convert film to analog video happened. In the last decade of the 20th century, digital tape (miniDV) became popular as did CDs, DVDs an personal computers.

    Since the early 21st century, electro-mechanical hard drives have come down in price and increased storage, flash memory is a popular video capture storage media and there are lots of different ways to convert various analog images (moving and still) to digital format.

    Why the history lesson? Because that which is "good" today" will not be useful in 10, 40 or 50 years from now.

    50 years ago, film and still images printed on paper (or carefully stored negatives) were "best". 30 years ago, a 3.5 inch disk was the "best". Remember Iomega ZIP drives?

    We cannot see into the future. The "best" you can do today is to store what you have, uncompressed, on electro-mechanical hard drives (yes, plural). Two or three hard drives with identical content should be stored in different cool, dry, ideally environmentally controlled, places. This will eliminate a single point of failure and losing the data.

    When the next long-term storage method becomes reality, be prepared to convert from that "archive" to the new storage method.

    Why not cloud? A couple of reasons: (1), video uses LOTS of space. Archiving that much will be expensive and consume lots of hard drive space in a cloud data center somewhere. (2) We don't know which companies will be in business in 5 years - not to mention who will be in business in 50 years. (3) Cloud data centers can be hacked. We've all seen the news from Google, AWS, MSN and others, so if you are surprised, then you aren't paying attention. If it is *that* important, you cannot depend on others you don't know to take care of it so you have to do it yourself.

    This is my opinion of what is "best". It is not inexpensive. It can be very labor intensive. Is there a balance between the above, being cost effective and not so labor intensive? Sure... but we don't know your specific requirements, budget and expertise. Only you can decide that "threshold of pain" to determine whet is best for you...
