Subject: Tech: editing DVD for youtube
From: Phil Cooper
Date: 20 Feb 09 - 03:40 PM

I'm trying to figure out how I can edit bits from a couple DVD's people have done of us at recent performances and post them on youtube. My computer geek nephew was visiting for Christmas (he does intern work for NASA, so is a bit more computer savy than me) and helped me post something. He walked me through the program and I figured out how to post it. But do you think I remembered? Since then, I have tried repeatedly to upload some songs from the DVD drive. It seems like it would be an easy thing to flag the start and stop times, but it is not working. We determined that the moviemaker program that comes with windows xp sucks. He put two web programs (video lab and some called avidemux ?) and I have not had better luck with those. Short of importing the nephew again (he lives 800 miles away), does anyone have any advice, in standard english, that I could try? Thanks.

--Phil

I've used Moviemaker and not had any problems with it, Phil. Maybe try it, again? If you want, I could send you some "walk through it" instructions, from what I know about using it. I don't think it works well to try to upload raw video to youtube, though I've never tried it. Good luck!

I had loaded up a DVD to the hard drive and tried to import it to movie maker and pretty much nothing happened. It could be my computer, because I think there's a couple other things that don't work as well. I'll try it again. Thanks!

DVD format is not directly supported on youtube. What I do is use a program called DVDx it is a free conversion program that will convert the dvd format to any other format. MP3 or mpeg is a good choice. Once the video is converted you can upload it to youtube.   Your nephew probably gave you some other program to do the conversion but DVDx is easy to use, it is free and you will be on youtube in a few minutes with it

by the way after I use DVDx, I normally use windows movie maker to add the titles and other stuff you may want. Windows Movie Maker works fine actually but that is optional for you

Thanks for the advice. Susan and I have downloaded a version of DVDx and are trying it out. Won't have time to get to it today, but will slog through it soon. Katlaughing, I think your offer of movie maker tips is very kind. Did you want to PM them to me, or put them out here. If I could get that to work, that'd be great. I appreciate all the tips.

OH on windows movie maker, just create a project,
import the mpeg video you converted from dvdx

from there you can mess with the movie anyway you want to edit it

you can add a title by going under tools and add whatever title you wish. Once you are finished, save the movie (under file save movie). This will convert it to WMV format that is also usable by youtube. Play with it, you cannot hurt a thing ok. It will save by default under my documents , my videos

windows movie maker is pretty good actually for such things. It comes with windows

OH OH
also after you import the mpg movie, click and drag it to the lower bar, this adds it to moviemaker for editing K?

I use some software called Aimersoft DVD Converter. The programme can convert DVD into a variety of file formats such as MP4, AVI, MP3 etc and has features such as trim, crop and colour effect. I usually do my editing before conversion using a DVD player and DVD recorder to get my clips the way I want them. I find editing away from the computer using a TV, DVD & DVDR to be a better option. I convert all my clips into MP4 format. Check out MerseysideVideos on You Tube to see the quality.

I'll have to get going on this. Thanks for the concise advice. I was afraid a lot of the responses would go into a bunch of techno-speak that I wouldn't be able to understand.

Sorry I haven't been back in, Phil. Looks as though olddude got you going, though? If you get stuck, I do check my PMs frequently. ol'd is right, though, you can't hurt anything by going in and playing around with wmm...just click on tools and have a blast. There are all kinds of visual effects and, as ol'd said, ways to add titles and end credits in all kinds of interesting ways. Have fun!:-)

Congratulations to Phil for getting his first video up on the myspace page for February Sky. You will have to turn your volume up all of the way as it was a live recording with a low volume, but Phil deserves kudos for getting this far with his video plans. Onward and upward as Art Thieme says. I look for more vids in the next few weeks as Phil has said he'd going to work on it.:-)

Thanks, Phil, for sharing. You both sound great!
