To watch a videotape in your dream indicates that you need to stop and relax. Take a break from life and let your mind rest. Consider the title of the videotape or what you are watching and determine how it relates to your waking life. It may also represent past memories or repressed thoughts that are playing out as the dream videotape.
If you are rewinding the videotape, then it suggests that you are experiencing regret or remorse over your past actions.
If you are forwarding the videotape, then it suggests that you are trying to escape from some current situation.
