CREATING streaming media from a DVD

Hi,

I maintain a website for my cousin’s video business (weddings! not what you were thinking!!!) She wants to stream some of her deoms on the site and has given me one of her demo disks to get the video from.

My question for you is…what is the quickest, most efficient way to:
a) rip the video from the DVD
b) chop it up into manageable chunks
c) convert it into suitable formats for streaming.

the ‘embedding into a webpage’ bit I can cope with, i just don’t know where to start with the above.

Many thanks for any advice/help given
