Wal-Mart and Walgreens will both convert a VHS tape to a DVD for you.  *then* you can go down the rabbit-hole of transferring, encoding, converting and/or saving it into some file format suitable for the web.  I can't offer much help there :-)

If you end up with a FLV though, allow me to recommend http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=Flash_Media_Player
