how to transfer videos from the internet

Posted

I want to copy a video from the internet, transfer it to a DVD, and play it on my tv.

Chosen solution

Can one play Flash videos on a TV?

You can download videos from YouTube with the extension Video Downloadhelper.

You need a plugin for your browser to play the videos and an application to play the videos offline, but an extension works better to download videos.
