YouTube will accept many formats, and they then convert it to their own format. I uploaded a .mpg file once. A DVD .vob file is a type of mpg file. You can change the .vob to .mpg, in the file's name, if you have trouble playing a .vob file.
As for wmv files. I just picked up a copy of Gran Torino on Bluray, for my dad. It has a .wmv version included so I opened it to copy it. Seems it is infected with DRM, and Linux won't play it. There is a windows app that finds the key (drmdbg.exe), which I then used on a Linux app (FreeMe2) to remove the DRM! Dad can now have the DVD, and I have a copy that I can watch in Linux!
Of course, I OWN the DVD, at least until I give it to my dad. This would be illegal if you didn't own it!

My First YouTube Video
Inspired by this thread I created my first and second YouTube videos.
YouTube's preference is "We specifically recommend the MPEG4 (Divx, Xvid) format at 640x480 resolution with MP3 audio" as per
YouTube - Making and Optimizing Your Videos
So I used mencoder to convert the manDVD's *.vob to a *.mpg in the recommended format. Funny though YouTube seems to then make it 425x344
I also used xvidcap to record a video showing all the steps I used to make the video. The How-To is:
YouTube - Make A Slideshow For YouTube Using Linux
The Music SlideShow is:
YouTube - Mt. Shasta Slides
When viewing the How-To it is easier to read the screen with YouTube in Full Screen mode.
