More and more people are willing to upload videos directly to online sharing sites, including YouTube, Facebook and so on. It can be fun to see your videos online by your friends, your family and more strangers. Have you thought to upload your precious DVD video files to YouTube? If so, what should be done?
Normally, YouTube works fine on a few video formats including .WMV, .AVI, .MOV, .FLV, .MP4, etc. DVDs are not supported by YouTube. If you want to upload DVD files to YouTube, you should convert them to YouTube supported video formats first.
