A student did a short DVD of me playing for a media course project a few years ago. I only just got round to viewing it, and it's a lot better than I expected; her visual effects are pretty original.

It wasn't at all what I wanted, since they're all solos and I wanted to play with a partner or more as I normally would in public, but couldn't arrange it in time; nonetheless it seems worth putting it out somewhere. (I wish somebody had told me to talk slower; too late now).

So far, I've managed to get the files off the DVD using MacTheRipper. They sort of play using VLC but the user interaction doesn't work the way it does when playing the disc directly. I don't know exactly what BUP and VOB files actually are, and I don't have any application that can recoognize the whole shebang as a single meta-document.

What I would like to do is upload the intro and 12 chapters on the DVD as separate YouTube videos (or possibly as mp4 files hosted somewhere else). Any idea how I do that using geriatric Mac technology and without paying anything? iDVD and iMovie can't import the data, as far as I can see. I have both PPC and Intel Macs running MacOS 10.4.11 and no easy access to fancier authoring equipment.

Download the free Handbrake for Mac.
It'll turn it into a movie file.

Agreed. Handbrake should take care of it.

The next question you need to ask is "who owns the video" - you were the subject but the student shot and edited the film. It seems it should be their project to put it up, and to answer any copyright questions.

I've put up videos of our performances from dvd's on youtube. At first I used a magix program, was "interesting," but I learned how to use it. I would play the dvd through a dvd player, plugged in to the computer on a usb cord. I would start the recording at the point I wanted, and then stop it, then upload it in mp4 format to youtube. I called it fire ax editing, but it worked. When I updated the computer from window xp, to windows 7, that stopped working, so i bought an adobe premier elements 12 program. That works, but you need a college course. I recently went to youtube and pushed their upload button and found I could access my hard drive files from the dvd's I'd put in. They permitted me to do multiple start and stopping points (one song at a time). I uploaded a 33 minute segment on private viewing and got four good song performances that way, without using my adobe program. I'm going to upload some more dvd's and see how easy it is to continue. Not to blow my own horn, but if you put my name in youtube, my channel will come up and you can see what I've done. The hard drive/youtube method also didn't cost anything.
