How to Upload Clips from a DVD onto YouTube
If you have a lot of DVD videos, especially some home-movies from DVD, you can choose to upload those DVD's onto YouTube, FaceBook, etc to broadcast yourself. As we all know, YouTube has now become the most popular online video site; people can post almost anything they like on YouTube in minutes. In this guide, we aim to teach you how to extract a video clip from a DVD and then upload it to YouTube.
Before having a smooth video uploading, something you should know:
1. YouTube can only support a few of video formats:
.MOV, .MPEG4, .AVI, .WMV, .MPEGPS, .FLV, 3GPP, WebM
2. By default, you can upload videos that are 15 minutes long. YouTube won't accept videos that are longer than 15 minutes.
3. Uploading YouTube server Reject 100MB long File
From above, the first point we can get that YouTube can't support DVD files directly. What you need to do is to convert DVD to YouTube supported video formats first. Plus, since 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. (Of course, Google Support has provided a solution yet for uploading videos longer than 15 minutes to YouTube, you can learn more here, but a bit complex.) Here we offer you a simple way to rip and upload DVD to YouTube without any limit.
