I made a home DVD on my DVD recorder/player from my HD camera. I want to import the video content onto my Vista PC, and then upload the video onto Facebook. I know how to do the Facebook part, but how do I get the DVD content onto my computer? I prefer not to use any third-party software, but I will if necessary.

Hi. You could most likely use Windows Media Player to do that or RealPlayer, which has a Video tool ( It's FREE ). I have several media players in here, but primarily use Real Player. You should also be able to upload directly from the camera to the computer as well, which makes life a little easier. That would go directly to my Pictures and be marked as a Video. I usually just use the USB cable to Upload from my camera to the Computer, and then it is easy to post on say YouTube or whatever.

as long as you've finalized the dvd, you should be able to import it following coastie's tips

random question, what is the brand/model number of your video camera?

see below, might interest you in some more control/better dvd quality videos

google for a video to dvd program (direct to disk preferred) or if you have an editing suite like roxio or magix or sonic use that instead

as long as your computer has a dvd burner, you can cut out the dvd recorder completely

how to do video to dvd---

step 1, hook video camera up to computer, will probably show up as another hard drive in My Computer... copy the videos to your videos folder

open up direct to disc program and follow the steps (if you have such)

or open up the video program, import the videos you want (from the hard drive) and then burn to dvd

hopefully that made sense

Do you want to copy video from your camera to your computer?

Or did you already "copy" your video from your camera to a DVD recorder to create a video DVD and then want to "rip" that video DVD?

If it is the former, then coastie65's advice basically stands.

If you did the later, then you will need some sort of DVD "ripping" software. Since it is your own DVD and is not encrypted, then Handbrake should do what you need: http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php
Good riddance PCWorld.
