    Good Day, How would I burn a dvd disc onto my computer so that I can show some of it on you tube, without buying any new software..
    Thanks

    are you copying a dvd to your PC, or burning media from your pc to a dvd?

    Depending on as asked by my good colleague valis
    please see this


    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/Burn-a-CD-or-DVD-in-Windows-Explorer


    It does as mentioned depend on what and from where you are burning to dvd


    Even if you do not like that procedure there are many free burning software programs
    http://www.imgburn.com/


    this IMHO is one of the best, it burns most of what you could want to. It usually configures all automatically for you, often only requiring you t answer - a sort of what do you want to - type of question.


    Do not be fooled by the name Image Burn some have thinking that it only burns ISO images that is not correct.

    I think spoochface would like to convert a DVD video to a format that can then be uploaded to youtube.

    If so, first thing he ought to do is google "what is fair use" if using copyrighted material.

    he used the word burn in the title and twice in his post so I suspect he wants burning directions not converting directions.

    Spoochface said they want to burn "to" computer, and "onto" computer, I figured it stands to reason that they aren't entirely familiar with the computer jargon but proficient at speaking English. Besides, why would you burn a DVD to put something on youtube? All I'm doing here is steering the thread to the response it needs.

    Edit: There are plenty of instruction videos on how to do it on youtube, ironically.

    It appears that we may presume that the topic starter is not going to reply.
    Until and if they do we will not know for certain.
    Possibly it is best just to wait for that clarification

    Similar to as said above in the link ...
    But I'd copy the VOB files from the DVD ... Then open them in W7s Movie Maker 2012.
    Edit as needed .. then save as a movie 720x480 res.... (720x480 is the best you can put on (or get from) a Video DVD)
    Then you can upload the edited wmv movie from WMM to YouTube.

    Is the DVD in Widescreen ????????
