YouTube is a Web video sharing site founded in 2005. It lets users store short videos that are made available for viewing. These videos can also be embedded on third-party sites by copying the specific code provided by YouTube. Flash Player on the computer is required to play the videos. Certain sites allow users to convert Flash videos, or FLV files, such as those on YouTube so that you can save them on DVDs.
The Main Steps
Open an Internet browser, and go to Youtube.com to choose your video. Select the Youtube video that you would like to have on DVD, and copy the URL from the URL box at the right side of the screen. The video’s URL could look something like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv1PjVZ8L0E.
Open another Internet browser, and go to Vixy.net. Vixy.net is a free online FLV converter, meaning you can use it to convert Flash videos to a different file format. Paste your video URL in the input box labeled “URL.” From the drop-down menu, choose the file type to which you'd like to convert your Flash video, and then hit the “Start” button.
As soon as Vixy.net is done with the conversion, you will see a link that says “Download the converted video.” Click the link, and save the converted video file on your local drive.
DVD requires an MPEG-2 video to play. Since this option is not available on Vixy.net, you can get FlashOn TV. FlashOn TV is an application that can be used to convert the YouTube video to DVD format. Go to www.youtubetoipod.biz/flash-on-tv.html, download FlashOn TV to your local drive and follow the easy installation process. The file is about 10.7 MB.
Open FlashOn TV, and click the “Add” button in the upper left of the window to add FLV (YouTube) movies. After selecting the movies that you prefer, click on the “Next” button at the lower right of the screen to design the DVD menu. On the DVD menu, you can select menu templates, buttons, movie frames and texts for your DVD from a drop-down list. You may also add a background music and background image. On the menu, each movie will be placed in a frame so you can use a remote control to select the movie that you want to play after the movies are burned to a DVD. If you have a number of movies, you may select a menu template with more frames. You can click on the “Preview” button to preview your final menu or proceed to clicking the “Next” button.
You will see a menu for the DVD settings. You can modify the settings to your preferences or stick with the default. Insert a blank DVD in your DVD-RW drive if you haven't already done so. Click the “Burn” button to start burning.
