You need to buy a special video card, and someone to initially show you how to use it. I have the ATI ALL-In-Wonder Radeon - it brings video right into .mpg files. It also has a TV tuner built into it - if you think picture-in-picture is kinda neat, the **** you can do with this video card will blow you away. There is probably something better out there by now, and I assume that the Radeon is probably reasonably priced by now.
The most challenging part of converting videos to mpg's is figuring out where to set your image compression settings, to get a reasonably small file size, but something that people can actually SEE - video clips take up HUGE amounts of space.
