Question re: video file format for dvd
I want to download some youtube videos and burn them on to a dvd.
What's the best file format to convert the videos to?
depends what software you're using, but a dvd file (a .VOB if you look at a DVD on a computer) is actually an MPEG-2. So you can't go wrong with an MPEG-2.
Will the dvd also be playable on a regular dvd/TV?

How are you converting the FLVs to MPG, before making the VOBs?
Just curious what your process is... and interested to know the results.
I use an app called for recording video from screen. Snapz Pro
I also have an application called , for taking video from DVDs, but I've never gone in the other direction and made DVD content from FLV files. Cinematize Pro
Just like to know how it turns out.
Good luck with it all.
