I think that I said that my editing program is Adobe 6.5. I have assumed that after doing the editing that one needs to reduce the work to a single file and burn that file to a DVD and somehow upload it to the web. After the file is burned to a DVD is where my knowledge ends.
I am not sure about Adobe 6.5.
Is this a Video editing program?
I did see that you used Adobe 6.5, I was just letting you know what I used and I have successfully loaded VHS and Mini DV tapes from the camera and VHS tape player into the computer, edited the video, created a MP4 or AVI movie and sent to youtube.

How do you get the video files from your camera into the PC?
You can add video clips or still photos.
