Well, you'll have to use a video converter to convert the DVD into a proper youtube format. If you follow this
link and scroll down to the "DivX and XviD" section, you'll find plenty of guides telling you how to convert your DVD into either divx or xvid format (I recommend Xvid.) I've used a few programs before and I can't remember if I used the ones listed in this guide but I think
I have and I got great results. http://www.afterdawn...ert_to_xvid.cfm
You're DVD's not too big (an average movie dvd that's been shrunk in size is a little over 4 gigs) but I would still recommend converting while you sleep (unless you've got a super fast processor.)
Here are the Youtube recommendations for video formats on their site:
YouTube accepts a wide range of video file formats such as .WMV, .AVI, .MOV, and .MPG transferred from most digital cameras, camcorders, and cell phones.
We've found that files converted from .wmv to one of the other formats our webpage accepts generally have a lower playback quality than other file formats. If you have your source video in a format other than a .wmv file, you may want to encode directly to MPEG4 (DivX, Xvid, SVQ3) at 640x480 resolution, with 64k Mono MP3 Audio. If you have a source .wmv in high bitrate and larger resolution you may want to convert to MPEG4 at full resolution and then resizing to 320x240 using a high quality resizing algorithm - this can help reduce the number of artifacts you end up with.
