Emailing a TV recording

  roygbiv 12:01 15 Sep 2005

I have just had a phone call from a relative, who is away on holiday in Cyprus. They kno I have a TV item (15 minutes max.), on DVD, and they want me to try and send it by email.

Is this possible (and legal)?
Plus (if so) how to do it. TIA ALAN

It will probably be too big to e-mail - copy it and send by snail mail!

My relative and I have Both got BroadBand.

How big a file do you guess??

You need to convert it to a playable format (it may already be...) such as AVI or MPEG

Is it the only thing on the DVD and is it in DVD format (ie not saved as mpeg or avi file)?
If so, you will need to attach all the files visible on the DVD (insert, stop it playing and close the program it plays with, right click 'Start' button and choose 'Explore', right click DVD drive and choose 'Properties' (- on the pop-up will be the size of the files the DVD contains), right click it again and choose 'Explore, and then you will see everything that needs sending.
If there is other stuff on the DVD it will be a lot harder to find the required files.
Good luck!
