Upload Videos to Your Computer
Okay, first you need to have videos on your computer, or find some online, before you can upload them to your site. So, if you don’t know how to do this, here is a quick tutorial on how to upload video to your computer.

For starters, you can either upload your video to your computer or burn it to a DVD. Whether you upload your video from your computer’s hard drive, or a DVD, really doesn’t matter. The end result is the same.

The first step is to make sure that the connection on your camcorder matches or is compatible with your computer. For example, I394 is a common connection amongst computers and camcorders manufacture red within the last few years. If you do not have a digital camcorder you’ll need a DV bridge to convert video to digital and save it on your computer. You can even use some DV bridge software to record old VHS tapes using your VCR!

Click the button in the lower-left hand side of your computer screen and then click . Review the programs and search for “Windows Movie Maker.” If you don’t see this on the main program screen, check the Accessories folder.

In the Menu Tasks bar on the left side of the software screen, click on the and then choose “DV camera” from your list of options. Make sure that your digital recorder is connected to your computer, or a message will appear that no device was detected.

Next you will be asked to enter a file name. This is the title of your video (i.e. 2005 Caribbean Cruise, or Mom’s Retirement Party.) Once you enter a title, you need to choose a location to save your video. Click to select a location. For your Capture Methods select “save the entire tape automatically.” Then hit . You’ll notice some activity with your DV recorder and the tape starts to run. This means it is recording to your hard drive. When you’re done you can upload the video to MySpace, or further edit to create snippets.

Burning Video to a DVD
If your computer is more than a few years old, make sure you have a DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, or DVD+RW drive. If you don’t then you will have to upload the video directly to your hard drive instead of to a DVD. If you have a DVD-Ram, you can try (no harm in that), but your video probably won’t write to the DVD. If your computer is older, chances are you probably aren’t running the Windows XP operating system and videos often don’t burn properly on older operating systems. Transferring media is often a frustrating feat for new users, and the main reason for failure is usually an incompatible connection.
