I have a cd. It's a video. I want to upload it to my computer and then send it to a client.
Would you be able to tell me how to do that easily?

thanks

Look for vob2mpeg, run it, creates a single .mpg from the dvd files that will play on your computer.

You may want to post it to an FTP site and have them get it from there.

Emailing isn't meant for big files and it is likely that the video file will be large.

Once I find vob2mpeg, and run it, can I send that file to the customer? or does the customer need two files, I'm confused - again!

Does this CD kind of work like a DVD, menus and chapters if you put it in a DVD player? How exactly do you view the video now?

In any event it's probably going to be a very large file and even FTP is going be a hassle unless you both have very fast connections. Mail it to them.

Edit: AFAIK vob2mpg doesn't support VCD which is what it will be if it's not data CD.

Before you look for software try opening the CD with regular Windows file explorer and see what files are on it. If you find a big .avi file, that's the video and all you have to do is upload that file to your web server. Given that you don't seem to be computer geeky, the simplest way to upload is probably to create a Web Folder that points to your web hosting service. Then you can treat the web folder like any regular folder on your own computer, uploading and downloading to and from the website just by dragging and dropping filesr. Creating a web folder only takes a few steps and is described in many places... google "Create web folder"
