You'd need to use acidrip or similar to rip to avi then upload

I did that, the video is in avi form but It still won't upload. Does it need to be in this form H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 preferred, MP3 or AAC preferred. That's what it says I think.

I have uploaded 3gp format and it works fyn but may be it doesnot support avi or vob forms. So try using some other form which is more acceptable to youtube.

Can you help with this problem?
