How to Burn Movies From the Internet

by Randall Shatto

There are several places where you can locate public domain movies and burn them from the Internet onto a CD or DVD. To burn movies from the Internet not only saves time but it also is convenient if you have limited hard drive space. With this process, you can only view the movies from a computer. It takes approximately three hours to burn movies from the Internet, depending on the speed of your burner drive and your Internet connection.

Place a disk in your CD or DVD burner. DVD disks have 8GB worth of storage whereas a CD disk has 750MB. If you wish to burn a movie that is over 750MB, you must have a DVD burner and DVD-R disks.

Click on the movie to download. Once you have the video in your web browser, double click on it. A "Save" pop-up window will appear.

Select "Save." Choose the directory where you want to save the file. The top of the screen will have a small arrow pointing down. Click on that and then choose your DVD burner drive. This is usually the letter "D:" or "E:". However, if you have several drives, the letter may vary.

Choose "Save" when the DVD or CD burner drive appears. Wait for the file to download onto your disk. This could take several hours depending on file size and your computer.

Select, "My Computer" from the desktop. Open your DVD or CD burner drive. Click, "Burn To Disk" in the upper toolbar on the screen. Burning the file should take approximately 30 minutes.
