Download Mormon Messages to DVD

Postby russellhltn » Fri Feb 11, 2011 7:08 pm

I just got asked by my Stake President to download 4 "Mormon Messages from YouTube that he wants to show at Stake PH on Sunday.

I know this is possible, and I'm sure I can figure out something, but I'm looking for advice on a good way to do it. By "good way" something easy for me and gives good quality for the big screen.

One option might be to download it via the iTunes store and put it on my G4 iPod. I'd have to buy a video cable for it, but that's do-able.

Using a laptop for the presentation seems a bit clunky. (Especially my aging laptop).

Other recipes for success?

The best tool I've found is Easy YouTube Video Downloader. It's a web browser add-on with versions for Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari. After the add-on is installed, when you browse to a YouTube video, the add-on embeds a control below the video player that lets you choose the format to which you would like the video downloaded.

I have used the same program multiple times to make DVD's. Works great and it's free.

Unfortunatly nothing for IE8. I hate to have to install another browser just to do this.

The iTunes store approch seems promising, except I can't find 3 of the 4 requested videos: Inviting all to come unto Christ, Let every man know his duty: Aaronic Priesthood, and Seeking what's good:Youth song.

All of the videos you mention are available for download from the Youth Site at https://lds.org/youth/video/youth-theme-2011-we-believe?lang=eng

Thanks! Hopefully they find their way to the iTunes store too. I'd hate for members to have to find their content in multiple places.

Also, is there a reason the mp4 files are zipped? It seems to add an extra step with doing much about the file size.

They're currently zipped because that is currently the only way we can force a download. If it is just left as an MP4 QuickTime will start playing it in a new tab/window instead of letting the browser actually download it. It's not the most elegant solution, but there are some technical difficulties that arise when trying to force a download on a file with a .mp4 extension.

I don't know if there are issues with posting links to solutions that are not free, but I have been using $39.99 program called "Real Player Plus". It allows a popup when viewing any online video which will download the video to a video library. You can then go into the application and create a playlist of hte desired videos and has a built in tool for creating DVD's with menus and such. http://www.real.com/realplayer/player-plus

Good option and all the videos are high quality. Deseret Book is also selling a DVD of Mormon Messages.
