I have some recordings of some old bluegrass jams that I'd love to post on Youtube and share. I had some help in finding a converter program, I was told to make it an .avi file. So I did this. When I tried to upload to Youtube, I still got an error message. Any ideas?

Unfortunately, we can't see your screen, so we have no idea what the error message was.

Hold on, I'm warning up my crystal ball... crap it's broke. You'll have to do it the old fashioned way and tell us the error message

There is a little box where you name the title of your movie on YouTube, in that little box before I could name it appeared the red letters .avi error. That's really all it said.

You can rip the DVD using Vob2MPG assuming it's not copy protected.

If you just want to cut out segments and youtube accepts mpeg? you can use some thing like Cuttermaran .


The benefit of above method is there is no conversion except for whatever youtube does with it so loss in quality will be minimal.

Thanks, I'll give one of these a try this weekend. It is just family video, so not protected.

vob2MPG rips the video from the disc "as is" there is no conversion, Useful for other things like getting them off disc and storing as archive so when the disc fails you still have original copy.

From there you can import into a a variety of programs as a source for output. Always work from the ripped video as a source.
