How to Burn a CD From YouTube

By Mitchell White

Burn movies from the website YouTube to a CD so that you can show it to your friends on other computers using the program Windows Media Player; this program comes with most versions of Windows. In order to do this, you have to first get the video from YouTube to your computer. A few different websites and programs will do this for you free of charge.

Step 1

Download and install the program YouTube Downloader for a software solution to capturing the YouTube video. Copy any YouTube address, and as soon as you click on the textbox in the Downloader program, it will paste that address into the box for you. Click the "download" button to download this file to your computer in FLV format.

Step 2

Open for a website method for getting your video. Paste the video's website address to the site, select the output format you want, and then download it by entering your email address and having the site send a link there. The website is free to use.

Step 3

Try for an alternate website you can use. Click on "download it from" and then paste the website address into that textbox. Select your output format and click "Convert." This will cause a link to appear right on the site. You can click that to download the video to your computer.

Step 4

Use Windows Media Player to burn the file you downloaded by clicking and dragging it to the "Drag Files here" text in the "Burn" tab in the program. Click on the "Start Burn" button in that tab to begin burning once you have a blank CD in your CD Write drive.
