To me, it's a "video player".

VCR actually refers to a videocassette recorder which, technically, is not the same as a video cassette player.

Some Players are also VCRs.

Some VCRs are also players.

But not all VCRs are players and not all Players are VCRs.

Tbh, I often get mixed up and called it a VCR tape instead of a VHS.

So I'm the opposite of your question.
