How to Put your DVDs on YouTube?
If there¶s a party happening at your home, you¶ll probably capture the moment on a Flip video camera and then upload it strai to ght Facebook or YouTube so that all the other family members may also enjoy it. But things were a bit different few years ago. Back then, you would shoot everything with an analog video camera on tapes and burn them on to DVDs. Therefore, in all these years, your high school reunion, your wedding video and dozens of other DVDs have piled up in the cupboard waiting to be seen.
Upload your DVDs to the Web
Well, if you got some time to spare over the weekend, you can put all those fond memories on to the web. Here¶s a qui guide to help you ck get started:
Step 1: Get the video from DVD to your hard drive.
While HandBrake is one of the most popular tools for extracting videos from DVD images, I recommendVidCoder which is more like a simplified version of HandBrake.
Run VidCoder, insert the DVD disk and then choose the VIDEO_TS folder of your DVD drive as the Source in VidCoder.
Step 2: Let the conversion begin.
While you are in VidCoder, Press Ctrl + T or choose File ±> Enque Multiple Titles and add all the titles to the queue for conversion. The default conversion settings* are good enough for online video so we don¶t really need to modify the Encoding part. Just i t the h ³Encode´ button to start the conversion p rocess. This might take some time depending upon your computer¶s processing power as well the duration of the DVD video.
Step 3: Make it YouTube ready.
YouTube won¶t accept videos that are longer than 15 minutes and we therefore need to split our DVD video clips into multiple smaller parts to fit the YouTube limit. There¶s a nice Windows-only utility called MP4Box that can help you here.
To prevent such a situation. Take a brea here because k uploading will take time. The regular upload tool on YouTube works pretty well but I suggest using theJava based tool since it supports resumable video uploads. press the Shift button and select all the 15 minute long clips in one go. click the Join tab and add all the DVD parts in the right sequence.If you have two video clips of 20 minuteseach and you split them at the 00:15:00 mark.
Step 5: Link the YouTube videos
. a better solution would be that you first co mbine the two clips into one and then split them at 15 minutes.
Step 4: Upload to YouTube (with resume)
We are now ready to put our videos to YouTube. Split. Join them all and save the file. Next to the Split go tab. Launch MP4Box GUI. you¶ll actually end up with four clips two of 15 ± minutes each while the other two of 5 minutes each. open the same ³joined´ file and choose ³Split by Duration´± set the the value to 15.
Click the ³Upload Video´ on YouTube.
Good luck! [*] Unlike commercial DVDs that are copy protected. Annotations involve a little effort so a good alternative is playlists. This is possible through the vi eo annotations feature of YouTube. Open the first vi eo clip in the YouTube Annotations editor.

. Repeat this with all the other clips. That s it. home DVDs are generally unprotected meaning your can easily rip them into other video formats without requiring any workarounds. scroll to the end and insert a speech bubble that points to your second video clip.a sequence. Put the all DVD parts in one YouTube playlist and the n advantage here is that your friends can watch everything from one page without having to manually navigate through videos.
