Video from DVD to FP website

Video from DVD to FP website

Video from DVD to FP website

I'm a volunteer webmaster for my church with basic FP experience. I'm running FP 2003 on a HPw/Windows 7 using GoDaddy to host. I want to upload a video to be shown on our church website. I have the DVD and can play it on my computer. I think I need to copy the video file to my computer and then import it into the 'images' folder of my FP web page and then either inasert it as a picture {video}, or insert an Active X or plug in to play the video. The problem I'm having is I don't know how to copy the video (its 13 minutes long) onto my computer. I feel so stupid that I don't know this - can someone please help a pitiful church volunteer lady. The website is www.stpaul-florin.org  

RE: Video from DVD to FP website

First off you need to convert the DVD to a format that can be played in a web browser. Perhaps .fla .wmv etc

Do a Google search for video converters, there are plenty of free ones out there (e.g. YouTube video downloader).

You then need to upload the file to a folder on your webspace and add some code like the below into the web page where visitors can view it:
