The first version was called Video 8 or Standard 8. After that came Hi8 and then Digital 8. Most players are backwards compatible.
This means that something is capable of loading and playing earlier versions of the media. A Digital 8 player will play all 3 formats, a Hi8 player will play Hi8 and Video 8 and Video 8 players will only play video 8.
