    I have a lot of instructional vid's and shooting vid's I would like to be able to play on my home theater DVD player. The problem is I used download helper in fire fox to save them.

    What can I do use to convert them and play on my DVD player? Since it does not recognize FLV files? Or how do I convert FLV files to something I can just play in a DVD player? Is there software to to use and which one is the easiest if there is?

    Thanks!

    First of all do you have a Mac or Windows PC. Second, does the said computer have a DVD burner?

    Its very easy to burn and movie file to DVD on a Mac.

    Download a program called Visual Hub and you can burn almost any video format onto a DVD dics, I know they have it for Mac. Might have it for PC too.

    Here is the only one I've tried it was a while ago. It seems almost every version is a beta but I think there is a stable version on the home page but you have to sort through it to find the correct Windows download. I chose this one because it's free and it converts FLV. It may not be super easy to use but it has been a long time since I've used it. It may have improved.

    Avidemux

    Can download Windows version here but ir is the latest beta version.

    Home page

    Oh I did find all of the downloads including the stable version but this website downloads don't always go well but often they do.

    Stable version
