Now, let’s gone burn the YouTube video to DVD. Because the downloaded YouTube is flv video, and DVD format is VOB, it contains two folders Video_TS and Audio_TS, you have to convert your YouTube video to DVD compatible video and finalize the DVD, or else regular DVD player cannot read and play it. I have tried many YouTube to DVD Burner and recommend this DVD Creator for YouTube. The burning quality is awesome, it can keep the good YouTube HD quality, and some YouTube burners will ruin the quality badly.

The DVD Creator will automatically convert the YouTube video to DVD format and burn YouTube video to DVD, that’s all. It couldn’t be easier to enjoy YouTube video on TV like that.
