  • The next step is to find the YouTube video that you want to burn and download. Once you have found it, copy the URL and then paste it onto the TubeZen website. (Paste it onto the green bar)

  • The next step is really easy. All you have to do is click “Download Now” and save your video file to the directory of your choosing on your computer.
  • Insert any empty DVD into your computer and then launch “Movie Maker”. This program comes pre-installed with operating systems XP and later.

  • Right click the imported file and choose “Add to Storyboard”
  • Select “File” (which is found on the main menu) and then select “Save as” to save your video file. NOTE: you are not burning it to the DVD in this step.
  • Now click “DVD” which is found in “Publish to” on the “Task” window. Now click “OK” which should open up a window for “DVD Maker”
  • Select “Next” and then “Burn” to burn your video to the DVD. If this does not work, there are many other methods on Google that will burn the DVD for you.
