    1. A program that can convert flash video to DVD format.

    2. Software and a DVD burner, to burn it to a dvd. So you can play it.

    Thats if you want it on DVD.

    Thanks for your fast reply. I have Nero and it asks that the file be converted to MPEG-2 first. Can you recommend an easy freeware program to convert flash to a DVD format? Thanks again.

    You would have to use Nerovision I think as it'll be video.

    There arent too many free programs around (well you can try them for free).

    BUT quite a few of them wont convert the whole file (some programs only do 50-60% conversion, not 100% conversion).

    Until you pay for it.

    I've found Super to be a great video conversion program -- it does everything I want and more. And it's free! It can look a bit intimidating at first, but if you choose what sort of output you want it picks a lot of defaults that seem to be ok.

    Yeah, the site's a bit of a nightmare to find your way around! Try this page, and the download links are right down the bottom.

    Free!

    (sometimes it will crash if your FLV is (i think) 15FPS, it requires editing of the command line options, but it will still convert)
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    Thanks everyone. Super worked well for me and I watched my first home-made DVD on the TV. Awesome!

    Thats the way. I use Super to convert files i've downloaded from google too. I convert them to .xvid though. It plays on all dvd players made in the last 3-4 years and is a much smaller file size. You can fit about 7 full length (1-1/12 hrs) movies on one dvd.

    One more thing, i've been having trouble getting movies using the firefox plugin called "videodownloader" so i've been using this one here
