When we download a video from some online video sharing sites like YouTube, Google Video, Yahoo Video, Metacafe, iFilm, MySpace, Dailymotion, the output may be the .flv file. Having the FLV video in hand, you can manually convert it into a DVD to create an exclusive film DVD.
Also, you may create a video in the .flv extension due to the simplicity of the FLV format. Try to back up the FLV files to a DVD to save the space on your computer’s hard drive.
In this tutorial, you may find the best way to burn your FLV files to a DVD that will benefit you a lot.
About the FLV format
FLV, namely Flash Video, is developed and released by Adobe Systems to deliver videos on browsers using the Adobe Flash Player. It’s designed to be the container file format for online streaming videos like TV shows, movies. Back in the 2000s and early 2010s, every video we see on YouTube, niconico, Google Video, Yahoo Video, and other video viewing sites were all installed with the .flv extension.
The reason for its popularity is that the FLV format is indeed very lightweight. Sharing the same length, frame quality, a .flv video file is half the size of a .mp4 file and a quarter of a .mkv file.
However, the FLV format is also significantly flawed.
So, unless you’re fascinated with FLV’s convenience in uploading and viewing, and have no plan to edit the .flv files, stick to the format. Otherwise, convert the .flv files to .mp4 or .mkv files.
How to burn/convert FLV files to a DVD
It’ll be an extremely easy task to burn your FLV file to a DVD if you use the right tool and follow the correct steps. First thing first, you need to prepare a blank DVD+RW disk that can store most digital files and play on all DVD players or DVD drives.
Then, you need to power on your computer and download the DVD Creator on it.
Now, get both your DVD+RW disc and the computer ready, let’s start the DVD creation.
When the process is complete, try playing the DVD to see if it pleases you or not.
To sum up:
The FLV-to-DVD conversion is such an easy task when you follow the steps above. But remember that if you plan to edit the movie file, convert the FLV files to MP4 or MKV files to avoid possible quality loss.
