Playing a YouTube video on a DVD player is a tricky proposition. There's no way to go directly from YouTube to DVD (though some computers can connect directly to TVs). You have to download and convert the video before burning a DVD. This process is reasonably easy to accomplish, but it may take a bit of time and effort on your part.

Step 1

Download the video from YouTube as an FLV, AVI or MPG file. This process can be accomplished by pasting the YouTube video's URL into a conversion site like Media-Convert or Dirpy.

Step 2

Convert the video file into a Video_TS folder, which is the type of folder DVDs use to store the video data. Conversion can be completed using a variety of programs, including the popular TMPGEnc Plus and ConvertXtoDVD.

Step 3

Burn the VIDEO_TS folder onto the DVD-R using burning software. Many CD-burning software programs offer options specifically made for Video_TS burning. If yours does not, burn the folder as a data disk. Put nothing else on the DVD.

Step 4

Play the DVD in your DVD player. Upon loading, the YouTube video will either begin playing immediately or prompt you to start, depending on your player.
