Need to convert video_ts files to something that can be used on a site
I have a client that gave me a dvd of an event they held that they want on their site.
I was planning on uploading to Google video, but found out they don't allow uploads anymore (bummer!). So I guess I need to do this the hard way, and I'm clueless.
I really have 2 issues, my main focus on the first issue here (once I get that resolved, I'll move on to the second one).
Issue #1: The DVD I was given has the movie broken up into Audio_TS and Video_TS folders. Audio_TS folder is empty, and Video_TS folder has 9 files in it. I believe I need to use either Video_TS.IFO or Video_TS.VOB.
Anyone know of a decent free (or cheap) program that will do a good job converting this to a format I can use for streaming video?
Issue #2: Again, no rush on this, but figured I'd post in case it makes a difference to the above question (or if someone can kill 2 birds with 1 stone).
Once I get the Video_TS file converted, what's a good way to create streaming video on the site? I'd like to have a player that you can enlarge for a bigger video image. I've seen posts on using Flash, but wasn't sure if that's the best way to go (not sure if that can enlarge the video).
