[QUOTE=Whappo;2227219]You don’t need a special type of CD to burn video. Where do you want to watch these videos, on your computer or a stand alone player.
What is the file extension of the video clips you have now on your hard drive? Avi, RM, FLV , MPG, etc. You can convert a file to VCD or SVCD which can be burnt on a CD and watched on a player that supports the format. If it’s a stand alone player, check the specs and manual. Your computer will play them with a software movie player, like VLC.[/QUOTE]
In answer to your questions: Since I can’t afford to upgrade to any DVD burning software right now, I am just looking to save the video to a CD and watch it only on the computer. The video clips are FLV and are downloaded to my RealPlayer program from YouTube. I wasn’t aware that I had to convert anything from my RealPlayer program just to get them saved onto a CD. That seems unnecessarily complicated. As you can tell, I only have novice-level computer skills (despite my many years of working on computers), so I’m at a loss.
The only “Convert” option that I see on my RealPlayer says “Convert audio files” and it can only be done with a paid upgrade (which I can’t afford right now). Is burning videos to a CD something that I can only do with a paid upgrade? My RealPlayer states that it can be done as is, but it just won’t work. I’ve even tried lowering the write speed, but it still doesn’t work. Any other ideas?
