Video or video What is the correct way to write it?

This is one of the most common doubts in Spanish since in many cases the form of video is written or heard pronounced, while other speakers pronounce it as video.

In this case, both forms of the verb are correct and mean the same thing. This means that it is a word with double spelling. Now we will see what is the meaning of this word and its use in some simple sentences.

Video

According to the RAE, the system for recording and reproducing images continuously is known as video or video, that is, the procedure as such, but the product of the said process is also called that.

Regarding spelling, in Spain the video form is preferred, that is, marking the I and pronouncing eo in the same syllable, while in Latin America video is preferred, where the vocal force falls on the e, separating it from the o in a different syllable.

As previously mentioned, both forms are equally valid, with neither being more valid or considered more cultured than the other. Its use is left to the choice of the speaker or the writer.

Examples:

  • What happened to the video I commissioned last week? / What happened to the video I commissioned last week?
  • My new phone takes great videos / My new phone takes great videos.
  • I have it all documented on video / I have it all documented video
  • Backup the video to your computer as a precaution only / Backup the video to your computer as a precaution only
  • I will need help editing the presentation video / I will need help editing the presentation video.

As you can see, the two forms represent the same thing within the sentence and do not change their meaning when using one or the other interchangeably, but both should not be mixed in the same document for style reasons.
