    How convert Steve Jobs' Stanford speech from FLV to DVD for any player? I've used http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UF8uR6Z6KLc, but I have no idea which format to choose, and having used several, they don't work. Thanks.

    What have you tried, so we won't repeat what you already have tried and run in circles?

    Have you tried iDVD? Have you tried Burn?
    To download, copy the YouTube address and go to www.keepvid.com and paste the address there and download the .mp4 version (480p, 34,9MB).

    Btw, in your titled you wrote "DVR", which is short for "Digital Video Recorder", but in your post you write "DVD", which is that round disk movies can be purchased on.
    To edit your thread title to a descriptive one, just click on the [​IMG] button on the bottom right of your original post and then click the [​IMG] button below your message.

    I can't figure what the problem is. I followed your advice: using KeepVid I converted to MP4. It wouldn't play. I'm beginning to think that the player I have is simply too cheap a machine to play any of these formats (Magnavox ZV427MG9). I really appreciate your prompt response.

    And what about using Burn to create a video DVD?

    The below screenshots use "sample.avi" as file, but you can apply the same steps for the downloaded .mp4 file.

    For stuff like that I use MPEG Streamclip, export it to a QT movie, then run it through iDVD (or DVDSP).

    Though that is a very good routine too, it involves MPEG Streamclip, which can be intimidating for normal users never seen such settings MPEG Streamclip provides, especially the codec list* (though there might be less than on a normal computer).
    Burn is a good option too for simple video DVD burning, as it is just drag&drop.

    I used BURN. It required conversion to MPG. Burned it. My player appeared to have loaded it--at least there wasn't a notice "disc may not have playback feature). It would not play. Looked into MPEG Streamclip. Apparently it requires purchase of The Apple QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component.

    Could this be the missing component in all of this?

    Strange, it worked for me the last time I used it via Burn.

    Anyway, to go via MPEG Streamclip you export as QuickTime (CMD+E) and use Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) as Compressor and Uncompressed for Sound. Then in iDVD you add that .mov and create a video DVD, though there are probably lots of tutorials about using iDVD out there, which you can take a look at.

    The MPEG-2 component is only needed when you open video DVDs inside MPEG Streamclip or if you want to convert to MPEG-2.

    Btw, what does Finder show on the DVD burnt with Burn?

    Your last instructions worked really fine. Many thanks. My only concern is whether the many steps of this procedure will always be required. I learned much from your help.
    You asked about what the FINDER showed re the dvd burnt with BURN.

    Is this what you meant?
    VTS_01_1.VOB
    VIDEO_TS
    THEME_TS
    AUDIO_TS
    SteveJobsStanford

    I would appreciate whether this last info tells you anything significant about either how I worked it, or something peculiar about my system. Again. Thanks.

    It tells me something, but not enough.
    What about making a screenshot of the Finder window , with a folders expanded, like this:

    Hmm, it is not burned properly, as the root folder should be called "Video_TS" and not "Burn temporary" and it should have the .vob file inside plus an .ifo and a .bup file.
    And the .vob file should be at least some MB in size, the partial screenshot alludes to it being ZERO KB in size.

    Anyway, if you still have the .mo4 file, try to use that with iDVD and see, if that works.

    I've tried BURN again. It just freezes. Got to sign off for now. You've been great.

    Yeah, I got burnt with Burn too.

    I haven't used it for quite a while, but is it possible that encounter is attempting to burn a data disk?

    Yes, AIC is the way to go.
    Sorry for the withholding of the codec. :eek:
