Users might be tempted to play back FLV files on DVD players. This can be done with simple conversion and DVD burning. Freeware applications for FLV conversion are readily available online.

Download the FLV that you wish to convert into a file format that is appropriate for your DVD player. Some downloaders allow you to convert the file during this process.

Add the FLV file to your favorite conversion software. Online versions of FLV converter software are available. File formats supported by most DVD players are MP3, WMA, MP4 and WMV, as well as AVI.
