Editing a video DVD to post short segments on my website

  1. BACKGROUND: I now have videos of two of my presentations on DVD's and finally succeeded in getting them onto my hard drive. Each is divided into many 'chapters'. I would like to save a few short portions of each video to post on the media page of my website. Here are my questions:

    1) How do I capture only about 3 minutes of each DVD to post on my website? What program do I use to do this job? (I have Sonic, Edit Pad Lite, Media Center and Power Point on my computer.)

    2) How can I tell what format my video files are currently in?

    3) To post on Website Tonight, where my webiste is housed with Go Daddy, video files need to be in .mpg, .avi or .wmv formats.
    If my files are not in one of the above formats, how do I convert these files?

    Thanks for your help .

    Try using Google's You Tube. You may be able to upload and play the entire DVD's without editing or cutting them down

    Thanks, but the problem is that no one visitng a website wants to watch an hour long video. That's why I wanted to just select a short segment to post.
