I want to copy some videos from Youtube to a CD so I can play those videos on my DVD player.

Which CD should I use for that and can I use Windows Media Player to copy videos to a CD so I can see those videos on my DVD player?

First you need to check in the manual or online what video formats your DVD player supports. If it supports MPEG and AVI, that will help.

If it's an older model player that only plays DVDs, you're in for a long session of downloading, converting, authoring and burning.

DVD+R will work. Download convertx, there are free version out there. They will convert the video format to ISO which will allow you to play it as a DVD which will play both on your computer and on your dvd player.

If you wanted to use a CD you can make a VCD which is standard format and should play in any DVD player.

Depends on the player, if it's newer one most likely but some players especially the older ones and ironically in particular older top of the line models might not play +R, -R or neither.

You can look up the compatibility here:


DVD Player and Blu-ray Player Compatibility List - VideoHelp.com

At the OP, you can also look your model up there and it will tell you if your DVD player is compatible with files burned as data.

My method plays on any DVD player and looks professional. It does take a little time.

I know that there are Add-ons for Firefox that allow you to download from sites that have embedded video. I'd assume that there are some for Chrome as well.
