don't get it

Postby farwest » Mon Feb 20, 2012 10:13 am

This must be an age issue. I have been trying to figure out how to take a video from the youth video's and download it to the computer and burn it. When it says right click to download it does not download or show any options. If I left click it downloads but as a file that is not supported to burn. I installed a mpeg4 to dvd converter and it says not supported. All I want to do is download the video and then burn it to a dvd so we can show it in a upcoming youth meeting. I've tried to go to youtube and itunes and I just don't seem to get how to do it.

Once you have the video file on your computer then converter/burning software such as DVD Flick will convert the video format and burn it to disc or create an ISO file for burning later. This particular program supports conversion of MPEG-4 codecs as well as many others. This is the only program I have used because it works and it is free. From the program's help file it says "It's main target audience is people who know at least some basics about DVDs and video\audio files." Even if you don't know anything, the program help walks through the entire process.

To take a specific example, go to President Eyring's How Do I Gain a Testimony.

Are you right clicking on the button that says "Right-Click to DOWNLOAD"? Or are you right clicking on the video itself. You need to right click on that button, not the video. What you see then will depend on your browser. The option you need will be labeled something like "Save Link As...", "Save Target As...", or "Save As..."

I assume the file was an MP4 (has a .mp4 extension). That file format is indeed a video file that can be played on just about any computer, but it can't be burned to a DVD directly in a way that can be played on a DVD player.

I don't know anything about that converter program you downloaded. That seems strange that a regular MP4 file would not be supported, but I don't know what your converter was trying to do.

If you can use a laptop to show the video, then you can burn the MP4 on a CD or put it on a flash drive, or download the MP4 directly to the laptop's hard drive. But if you need it to be on a regular DVD, then you'll have to use some sort of DVD creation software to make a DVD that contains that video you downloaded as an MP4.

Neither Youtube nor iTunes has the ability to burn a DVD that is playable in a DVD player.

AVI is a different format from MP4, so if you're using an AVI to DVD converter, it's not surprising that you would see an error message about an unsupported file format. Try the DVD Flick site jdlessley linked to.
