We put ours on the video itself. We use the boxes the video came in to
shelve it in (until it is totally ragged, then we replace in a plastic
box), so the barcode does not have to be replaced. Also, an added benefit
is that taking the video out of the box to scan the barcode gives us a
chance to check that the right video is in the right box. This happens
frequently when patrons check out several videos at one time.

The drawback to placing them on the video is that they are so large we
often have to place them so they go up and down over the little ridges in
cassette housing, which makes scanning difficult.
