I googled this, but I'm afraid to click on any of the search results.

I have some DVD footage that I'd like to convert to a format compatible with Youtube or Vimeo.  This is homemade DVD footage and not anything copyrighted.

Any solid leads on this from the Groginati?

If it is DVD format it is MPEG2. You need a converter that re-encodes it to MPEG4 or something with high compression. H.264 is the modern standard for video. Try Cyberlink PowerDirector.
