How to burn youtube videos to DVD on Mac?

| Thursday, April 2, 2009

This article originally had a step-by-step guide on how to Burn YouTube Videos to DVD on Mac but it was later modified because YouTube terms prohibit users from saving YouTube videos to the computer or burning YouTube videos to a disk.

This also applies to Yahoo, Google, Break, Metacafe, MySpace, Gofish and other video sharing sites - they allow you to embed or play videos in the browser but you are not supposed to record videos, copy them or transfer videos to a DVD as they could be copyrighted video clips.

Step 1, Use Free Youtube Downloader for Mac to download youtube videos to Mac.

Here is the tutorial on how to download youtube videos for free.

Step 2, Use Video to DVD Burner to burn youtube videos to DVD on Mac.

Install and Run DVD Creator for Mac (video to DVD Burner).

You can download it for free from this link: Intel Version.

Load YouTube videos
Insert downloaded youtube (FLV) videos from your Mac. Click the Add button to load them.

Edit Youtube Files
You can trim and crop the video files and adjust the effects before burning the videos to DVD on Mac OS X.

Edit DVD Menu
This youtube to DVD burner for Mac allows you to create your own DVD menu with various built-in resources. Click the Menu button on the bottom right of the main interface to edit the DVD's menu.

Previewing the Project

After finishing all the editing, you can click the Preview button on the main interface to preview your DVD project.

Burn Youtube to DVD on Mac

After you choose the correct DVD disk and the suitable video quality, you can click the Burn button to set burning settings and burn your DVD project.

How to Burn a Data CD in Mac OS X?


There are a number of CD burning utilities available for Mac OS X (cough -- Toast -- cough), but did you know that Mac OS X has built-in disc burning support? This functionality was added in Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger). It's a very handy feature that allows you to quickly and effortlessly burn data CDs! We'll show you how.
Step 1. To get started, switch to the Finder by either clicking the desktop, selecting the Finder icon in the Dock, or pressing the Cmd and Tab keys. From the File menu, select New Burn Folder.

Step 2. A new Burn Folder will appear on the desktop. Begin typing to change the name or leave the name as is -- it can be changed later.

Step 3. Open the Burn Folder by double-clicking its folder icon.

Step 4. Drag and drop files and folders into the Burn Folder. These are the items that will appear on your burned CD.Items added to Burn Folders will appear as aliases. Don't worry -- this is normal. When you burn the CD, the actual documents and folders will be burned to the disc.

Step 5. In the upper right-hand corner, click the Burn button to begin the burn process. If you have not already inserted a blank CD, Mac OS X will prompt you to "Insert a blank disc to begin."

Step 6. After you insert the blank CD, you are prompted to name the disc (it will default to the name of the Burn Folder) and select the burn speed. Click the Burn button to begin creating the disc.

Step 7. A window will show the current status of the burning process.

Step 8. After the disc has finished burning, the CD will appear (or "mount") on your Desktop.

Congratulations! You have burned your first data CD with Burn Folders.
