    diving in - DVD conversion

    I have a DVD-ROM drive and I would like to take a seven minute clip from a DVD and convert it into something I can put on my web site - wmv, avi, mpg, mov, even some form of Flash.
    "How do I do it?" is kind of vague and all-encompassing, so I thought I'd go with, Where do I start?
    Do I need additional hardware or software?
    The DVD - being homemade - is not copy-protected and I own the copyright.
    Is there a really informative site that will walk me through this?
    I know this is still pretty vague, but I thank you, in advance, for whatever you can tell me.

    Check out this site. They may have what you need. You'll need a program to get the vob files off of the dvd. DVD Decryptor works well for this. You will then need a program that converts these files to a video format. Dr. Divx can convert vob files to .avi but it isn't free.

    One method you can do is just take the movie on the DVD convert it to a movie on your computer using like DivX or Xvid codec like the tutorials on Doom9 show then you can use a program like VirtualDub to take the part of the movie you want out and save it as another movie file.
