How long is the video? For most people the limit is 10 minutes and a total size of 1gb.
This dvd shouldn’t have copy protection, but you can use a ripper like DVDShrink or DVDDecrypter to put it onto the hard drive. You can find both at www.mrbass.org
Once on the hard drive, you will probably want to reduce the size of the video and cut down the resolution. Youtube recommends using mp4, xvid or divx, 320 x 240 resolution for any 4:3 aspect ratio video. Or is yours a wide-screen dvd perhaps? There are lots of video converters out there…look at AutoGK or Xvid4PSP…these are just examples there are many others.
You can send it in its current format to Youtube if it fits the time and file size limits I mentioned already. It will just take longer to upload. Youtube will convert it to flash format in any case.
If you need just a portion of the dvd, please let us know. We can tell you how to take out a section using DVDShrink in ReAuthor mode.
