I have a 25 pack of blank DVD - R disks. I want to download FLV files onto them, put my computer won’t let me. The only devices to burn DVDs I have are Windows Media Player, iTunes, and the original version of RealPlayer. Is there a way to burn the files on to the disk? Or to I have to convert the format to AVI or MPEG-4? If I do, do you have any recomended programs for it?
If you have Windows XP or Vista you should be able to burn data DVD’s, although the options you have will be very limited.
You can try this http://www.cdburnerxp.se/ (freeware) can’t vouch for it because I haven’t tried it yet (try on DVD-RW to check out how it looks if you want to test)
I suggest grabbing Nero 8 off ebay. You can get it for like 20 or 30 bucks. You can get Nero 9 for a little more, and if you’re REALLY cheap you can get Nero 7 for even less.
in this case you need to convert flv to mpeg at first, and here is a free flv converter can do this well,

To make “normal DVD” (i.e., DVD-Video format), it has to be MPEG-2. FLV to MPEG-2 is not fun. Most of the low-cost software is junk, makes blocky videos.
A better method is at http://www.digital-digest.com/articles/FLV_to_AVI_Conversion_Guide_page1.html
The method can be modified some to create DVDs. You’d need to ask me for more help.

Hi. I have downloaded a few of the programs above then attempted to convert an .flv video (313MB) into a wmv or mpeg2 or 4. It converts it however when it completes, the new video format is only like 20megs or 22 megs, or even 5.05megs??? I don’t get this and have gone to another site to download the movie (so far 2 sites) but they all come out the same. What is the problem here? I have also used Real Player to convert, Windows Media center, but I am not getting a full result. Any suggestions here? Thank you.
I usually do it with this DVD Maker for Mac, which can burn all popular videos (like avi, flv, mp4, mov, mkv, etc.) to DVD-R. Maybe you could give it a go. It will be really easy if you try it.
