I am hooked on HULU and tv4u, I canfind all my old favorites on there.

I have been using ant.com to download them and AnyVideoConverter does a good job of converting the format.

What format will play on most home DVD players.

Alot of confusing info regarding this.

Any suggestions?


In advance,

Thank you.

Hey Sid !!

If you want to download FLV files from YouTube, you can use YouTube Downloader. BUT, their site is down for the
moment. http://youtubedownload.altervista.org/
You could download the latest version from download.com : http://download.cnet.com/YouTube-Downloader/3000-2071_4-10647340.html
They are also working on the next version which should be out sometime next week.

The OnLY converter I trust to do a Good job of transcoding just about any format to DVD to play in your Home DVD Player is, ConvertXtoDVD :
http://www.vso-software.fr/products/convert_x_to_dvd/. With this software, you only have to add the video to the converter and it will take care
of the rest. Once finished, all you have to do is , drop the DVD in the Player. In my Vista (core2Duo) a two hour avi. file takes about 50 minutes to
convert and burn. (it also burns to DVD without any other input from you). In my W7 (i7quad) a two hour avi. file takes about 35 minutes to convert
and burn.
You'll have to pay for this software but, IF you keep an eye on GiveAwayOfTheDay : http://www.giveawayoftheday.com/ , you might just get it for Free.
isohunt might be able to help with tutorial....

As a matter of fact, they have a Video Converter from AimerSoft which is run by VSO Software maker of ConvertXtoDVD.

As of this posting , you have 23 hrs and 12 minutes to download, install and register the software. You have 24 hrs to install ANY of their GiveAways.

Most home dvd players only recognize standard video dvd format well which should contains VOB, IFO and BUP files, so if you want to play your video in a home dvd player, you need to convert and burn your flv video to a standard video dvd, anyvideoconverter is a video converter software, so can't do that, you need a dvd creator software, such as rz dvd creator, you can have a try, I used it to convert video files to standard video dvd format and burn to dvd disc to play well in my home dvd player, hope it can help you too.

I usually convert mine to .mp4 or .mpg which will then allow you to burn it to a DVD. .mp4 is the format iTunes uses for vids and (for me) its better quality.

If you don't want to convert the videos then you can go here: http://www.savevid.com/

Just put in the URL of the video you want to download then click "download". It will drop down with a list of formats you can download it in such as .mpg, .mp4, or .flv so you don't have to go in and convert it again which will sometimes screw up the codecs.

Hope this helps.
