Need Help with burning a dvd

Ok I have some flv videos and burn them on a dvd disk but it says error when I try to play it. I think I need to convert them over to something but I have no idea where to start. Sorry I'm new here and aint ever burnt a successful dvd yet. So I had look for help. Tell me what I need to download and what to burn it with etc. I'm VERY dumb at this so try make it as simple as possible thanks. And I've tried downloading this dvdflick software but every time stops loading...

For converting I'll suggest Fremake : Free Video Converter| MP4 FLV 3GP AVI MKV DVD| FREE Download

For burning DVD's you may look here : Windows DVD Maker - How to Use

Another option:

1. Convert to .avi with Format Factory. Here is a little tutorial I made how to use it:

2. Burn it with DVD Flick. Those DVDs will also work on normal DVD players.

It looks like whs beat me to it

Yes format factory is the best in my opinion.

You can convert just about anything into just about anything.

Ultimate video options any resolution you want

5.1 surround in vob format or any other format for that matter for free where as others want $$$

but most important it will do your flv

It is fairly simple.

I think you will like it as it can also do pictures and music conversions

If your having trouble after trying as suggested above, install K Lite Codec Pack

You can save yourself a lot of time doing conversions if you can get either a DVD player that can play divx/avi/wmv or a set top box such as WD or one of the others. The set top box can generally play more formats in HD resolution.

Also this conversion software has a batch mode:

Installing a Codec pack can be deadly for the system. Don't do it.

To start with I would reecommend that you go with StalkeR's recommendation of using Freemake's Free Video converter Free Video Converter| MP4 FLV 3GP AVI MKV DVD| FREE Download , which is eminently suitable for newbies. It can straight away join,convert, and burn your videos to DVD.

As you grow in confidence and stature, you may explore other avenues for tweaking the video conversion.

And as recommended by whs be wary of installing codec packs. Too many codec packs can spoil the broth.

Ok guys I'm stoked I found this forum. Thank You all I just got one burnt but it don't have no audio on it. I burnt it through the freemake one suggested above. Any tips or know why this happened with this program and if I can't get it I will try the other one you all suggested.

The reason I'm doing this is to have music videos instead of just the cd since my vehicle has built in tv's. Sorry if I'm a pain...lol
