@JGoldman10,
Just a computer, a modem, and broadband Internet access. And a way to get the video off of the camera onto your computer: probably just a fire wire or a USB wire depending on your computer and camera source.

But I doubt you'll get a chance to upload video's to Hulu or its equal tier video sites as you're not a recognized content provider like the TV networks or film studios. YouTube might be the easiest (and most democratic) of the lot.

As for the equipment you need to make a video? That's another question.

@tsarstepan,
Hi Tsar, how are you? I am familiar with YouTube, Dailymotion, Metacafe, and Aol Video and Google Video.

What kind of camera do I need to upload videos with?

I have Verizon Wireless Internet - how would I check to see if I have broadband Internet access? I am not sure what that is.

@tsarstepan,
How do you upload videos from VHS or DVD to these sites?

@JGoldman10,
you'd have to copy the videos to your hard drive, if you have a dvd drive you can copy dvds using handbrake (free), for vhs you need various connectors depending on your system and some form of video copying software again depending on your system, i have a mac so i'm not sure what's available for windows

all of this is of course illegal unless the material you're uploading is your own or you hold the copyright

any digital camera with ability to shoot lim is fine, if you want better quality you should get an hd camera, something like the Flip

if you can stream video with little or no buffering you have some sort of high speed access

@djjd62,
Exactly what DJ has written.

Most every current generation of digital cameras and cell phones with cameras have some limited capacity to shoot video. Then one can also buy a cheap webcam for one's computer. Just as long as you can get the video from your camera to your computer then you can upload.

But if by Verizon wireless internet, you are referring to the internet established for your cell phone, then this is a different matter. You might have either 3G or 4G.

Is this the case? Do you do most of your browsing via cell phone/smart phone/tablet? Or are you working from a computer?

If your working via smart phone or cell phone, you should still be able to upload video if your phone has a camera with video taking capacity. Not sure how long or if the slower speed of internet speed/lower bandwidth of 3G will have to degrade the resolution any further if upload from a cell phone with slower internet connection.

@JGoldman10,
Do you have a digital camera or a cell phone with a built in camera? And the question of "What kind of videos do you plan to make?" might help you determine what equipment you need (in trying to determine what quality of video output you want for the video).

@JGoldman10,
As suggested by other people, Flip cameras run $80 and up. You also might find them cheaper on sales. Especially with the oncoming Black Friday sales.

Price: $62.90

Quote:
Flip UltraHD 2010 2 hour (Black)
The good: Excellent video quality for its class; electronic image stabilization; takes included rechargeable battery or three AAA-size batteries; simple recording controls; embedded FlipShare software remains excellent, adds Twitter support; accessory port expands usability.

The bad: No memory expansion; no HDMI cable included; no macro focus; no mic, headphone jacks; resolution fixed to 720p at 60fps.

The bottom line: The Flip UltraHD 2 Hour is a solid update to an excellent mini camcorder, while staying as simple to use as the original.

Editors' note: You may have heard that Cisco will no longer be producing the Flip camcorder products. However, as long as they're still available on the market, you may want to consider buying one anyway.

$90

Flip video cameras are known for their ease of use but don't expect highbrow Oscar Award winning cinematic movies to be produced from them.

If your just making a video in your home or bedroom and don't need to carry the "production" outside, a webcam runs from $25 and up. Webcams record video through your computer or laptop.

I don't know much about them but read a few of the Amazon reviews to see if they can cover what you need to do with the cameras.

Someone told me there is some kind of software you need to upload videos from VHS or DVD and save it to this program before you upload them to these viral sites- is this true?
