How to Convert YouTube Video to DVD Format

By Mitchell White

YouTube videos don't actually play off your computer alone. You are drawing on the website while playing them. This means you don't have a physical copy of a video on your computer without being connected to the Internet. To get a copy of a YouTube video for yourself and get it into a format that you can burn onto a DVD, you'll need to use a conversion website.

Step 1

Visit a website like Freefileconvert.com so you can capture your video in the DVD format you want.

Step 2

Click the tab that reads "URL Download." Paste the address of the YouTube video you want into the text box.

Step 3

Click on "Output Format" and select "DVD." Click "Download." A bar will appear showing you the download's progress. When it gets to 100 percent, the download will be ready.

Step 4

Click on the link that pops up to download the YouTube video in DVD format to your computer.
