Windows 7: Quality issue after burning a DVD from a YouTube video

Quality issue after burning a DVD from a YouTube video

I found a concert on YouTube that I really wanted to keep so I downloaded it using the Firefox Download Helper add-on. The source file was a 720p MP4 but after downloading it I converted it to AVI before burning a DVD using Windows DVD Maker. The resulting DVD is very blocky when played on a domestic DVD player, admittedly onto a 37 inch plasma TV. When the concert is viewed on YouTube the quality is excellent but am I expecting too much for this quality to have been retained?
Would it make any difference to create the DVD straight from the originally downloaded MP4 rather than the AVI?

Why convert it to AVI? That's the reason the quality of the clip drops dramatically. Burn the DVD directly from the MP4 file and you should see much better quality.

Thanks for the reply Gornot. Unfortunately I have just tried that but Windows DVD Maker states the MP4 file is not a supported file type and won't import it.

Do you have any other program to do it? Microsoft doesn't really support that many formats across its default programs on 7...

I'm giving the trial version of Aimersoft DVD Creator a try at this moment.

I do think that playing a u-tube vid on a 37" is not going to give terrific results whatever format you use.

True. It depends on the equipment used to make that video, even if it is in HD.
One would actually have to apply a certain amount of effects to the video to at least enhance the colors and stuff, which is neither easy nor cheap for those who don't know how to do it.
