    I would like to convert some YouTube stuff to DVD in the best possible way.

    For me, ConvertXtoDVD quality is equivalent to SUPER - but lots simpler & easy to handle. I tend to think SUPER is too bulky and monolithic. I don't like it much.

    What I get, in the end (from both softwares), is a blocky, pixellated image.

    Is there any way to CLEAN UP YouTube's flash files? Can avisynth help me out here? Has anyone out there succeeded to convert these flash files to any decent quality?

    This worked for me a couple of times, but now it's coming up with the error message:
    "An ERROR has occured while encoding. The most common possible reasons causing error:
    If you did not check "Use Directshow", you may try to check it on, as you may have a working ActiveX filter installed on your PC that could read the codecs of your input file.
    Your input source file may not be a valid multimedia clip due to a damaged header, corrupted/segmented data or truncated file. Or maybe your input file has unsupported codecs. Here again, you may verify the structure of your input fileby double clicking it, the Media analysis Box opens to display it's info, codecs, and other internal data.
    There was an interruption of the encoding process due to Disk space, Slow PC, RAM drainage, CPU overload or a simple user interruption. Try again"
    I've tried everything but it won't work all the time. I downloaded the files to flv, then inported them to SUPER. Any idea about this, pls post me. Thanks

    How do I get this particular YouTube downloaded? Keepvid doesn't work for this! ---

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2VIc0qixx8

    Why is that?

    (EDIT: It's nothing "adult"! But, possibly clips labelled "adult" can not be downloaded with Keepvid?)

    mattso, use Firefox with the Videodownloader extension. Somebody has posted a guide in the guides section on how to do this. Btw, that song was monk-tastic.

    Another Firefox extension that works well enough for me can be found here:

    https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2584/

    It also tries to give the saved files the correct filenames, too.

    (AFAIK, VideoDownloader and KeepVid are basically the same thing, so if KeepVid won't work for mattso, VideoDownloader might not as well.)

    glorygirl83: I'd guess that the FLVs you're having a problem with are encoded using the VP62 codec; SUPER can't handle FLVs that use any codec other than the default. There are some other topics on the forum that mention other methods to convert such videos, but I don't have the links handy and haven't tried any of them, myself.

    Thanks, you monks!

    Steveryan, I've downloaded VideoDownloader for Firefox several times & ended up scratching my head what the f%#$ to do with it? I don't understand it. What do I do? I try to keep up with the forum & guides here every day, but I can't remember a "Firefox Videodownloader" guide. Can I trouble you for a link? Or some instructions? Anyone?

    (EDIT: Ai Haibara, I'll try that extension, thanks!)

    The "Ook? Video Ook!" extension for Firefox did the trick with that problematic Monks clip! Thanks all.

    Total Video Converter supports FLV with VP62.

    You can also save the video from Firefox's disk cache. Best part about this is there's no need to download the vid again. So it's good for people on dialup.

    I'm wondering what ffmpeg command line worked for you when converting files. I attempted to use:

    Code:
    ffmpeg -i video.flv -target ntsc-dvd video.mpg
    but that resulted in files that I could play only on the computer due to their lack of sound on standalone players. I'd be interested to see what worked for you.

    I have the same reason for wanting to convert to DVD--video for the kids away from a computer--so I'm prepared to accept lower quality videos in exchange for some peace and quiet in the car

    Super does not let me select anything other than gif, the drop down list is empty and transparent.

    I ran regsvr32 C:\Program Files\flvsplitter\flvsplitter.ax command and used the extract program to get mp3 and avi tmpgenc plus does not support the avi and you cannot play the avi in media player. I do have flvplayer 1.3.3 installed so hope that not hurting anything.

    Do I need to add some codec to tmpgenc and windows media player now???

    Any idea why super may not be working (I do have another instance of tmpgenc running a large batch job at the moment but that has never bothered me before, often run several at once)

    dawsonj: Try right-clicking on the main SUPER window and unchecking the Stay on Top option, and see if that fixes the problem with the drop-downs not showing anything.

    Thanks, super is working now.
    If I do get files that super cannot handle any ideas on why the split and extract method created an avi that tmpgenc could not handle?

    You may indeed need to install another codec, yes. But try running the AVI in question (the one that won't work with Media Player and TMPGEnc) through GSpot (version 2.52 or better) and post a screenshot of the resulting window here. Blank out the file and path names, if you prefer. This may help us determine what might be causing the problems.

    Ok I'm able to get it to the avi/mp3 files. Not to sound like a complete and utter moron, but, which tool can I use to combine them into 1 simple and playable avi file without re-encoding?

    If I must re-encode, which is the best program to use (for avi format).

    if you cant find the extension, you can make it appear like this:
    open a folder , choose tool--> folder option-->view -->show file extensions
    and the you can change the extension

    THANK YOU for the excellent guide on converting YouTube to DVD. I love it!

    Problem: I downloaded the updated SUPER v2007.build.22 released (March 14, 2007) and now I'm having a problem with low audio volume on the converted files.

    I used the NTSC SUPER settings you suggested. I also used Intervideo WinDVD Creator to add a menu. The low volume became really pronounced after the DVD was created. All the soft clips were the ones I had converted using the updated SUPER. Any suggestions?
