VLC Media Player

William wants to make a video and use iMovie to edit it and post it online. But how? Leo says the issue isn't what editor you use, but how you host it. Leo recommends hosting it on YouTube. It's free. It's ideal if you don't know video. How to share it? You can embed it to your website or provide a link for the viewer to watch. 

How can he copy a DVD? Leo says ripping is the best option. He recommends using Handbrake.fr and VLC Media Player. Using both in concert will enable you to rip any DVD. Then you can get the digital files and burn them to another DVD disc. But understand that copying commercial DVDs is considered video piracy by the copyright holders.
