Hi - after I have burned a title from my hard drive to DVD on my Magnavox DVR (MDR535H/F7), can you please tell me if I can now upload that video file to youtube?

What would be the file extension of the video on my recorded DVD?

Do you have any other suggestions that might help me?

Thanks.

What is burned to disk is DVD Video format. You will have to use additional software on your PC to extract/convert the title video to a format that U-tube will accept. My guess is you will have to compress it to get the file size way down.

1. You will need to copy your DVD to your PC I recommend DVD Decryter.
2. Then you will need to convert/edit the video. If you have Windows, the old Windows Movie Maker, will do the trick.
3. Then upload the vid to Youtbe.

While I do like DVD Decrypter, it is completely unnecessary to use it on a home-made DVD-Video disk that has no copy protection. All you need to do is drag the VIDEO_TS folder from the disc to your HDD using Windows Explorer. Unfortunately, DVD Decrypter has some problems running under Win-7 which will never be corrected.

If on the other hand you want to make a DVD.iso file from your home-made DVD, I would recommend ImgBurn. ImgBurn started out life as the burning module of DVD Decrypter after Decrypter was chased off the Internet by the MPAA -- they threatened to sue the developer. They continued to develop the burning module into ImgBurn.

Get VOB2MPG. It will create an MPEG2 file that is an exact copy of your vid. Let YouTube do the conversions.
