I like the idea of using the windows media centre, but it says that the file something is not supported.

Install Shark007's codec pack for better file format support within Media Centre.
You may stil need to convert your youtube file (.flv) using AllToAvi first

This is all too much trouble. I downloaded several things and none worked. I suppose at some time in the future this will get sorted out, but you guys that are up on this stuff can mess with this. Reminds me of the time I was taking a Dos class in college. I told the instructor that it was too much trouble and she glared at me. I think the issue is that no matter how user friendly these computers become we keep asking more and that drives development, but there is always some issue that needs attention. Or, it doesn't. If I can't conveniently burn a dvd from utube so be it. Merry x-mas everyone.

I used to just use Nero to burn files as a DVD, but being as my copy of Nero is now outdated I thought I'd have a look into another program that would do the job...
I found a program on sourceforge called DVD Flick, which is open source (free, but donations are welcome) and does support flash video files like the ones on youtube.
I downloaded it and tested it on my system with an flv, and it works well
There's also a decent guide on how to burn your DVD's
The only problem that I had (and it's easily fixed) was that by default the program doesn't burn direct to DVD, it only saves the DVD folders to your hard drive. To fix this, click Project Settings - Burning, and check the burn to DVD box (see screenshot)

I got it to work. A combination of RealPlayer, Prism Video Converter and Express Burn.
A little of this, a little of that, and it did work. Don't remember what the combination was though. G
