    When you say “ other video’s “ .... what do you mean ?
    Would you by any chance be violating any DRM agreements ?

    Other video sources like Vimeo . It seems easy to find sites that convert YT , but any others not as much, but i since found Vimeo one. No violation, these are already uploaded videos to yt, vimeo specifically and i want the clips to burn to my own personal dvd.

    A couple of sites that say that they can download Vimeo videos:
    http://savevideo.me
    http://vimeoinmp4.com

    You could also use the Video Download Helper in Firefox.

    Hopefully someone who follows this issue more than I do can comment but anyway here's my take: I wouldn't count on the mere fact that a video has been upladed to youtube to mean there is no violation. The question is only partially dpendant on the fact that you are only using the video for personal use. The other side of that equation is whether the person uploading the vidoe had the right to do so.

    I'm not suggesting that you are up to no good. Merely pointing out that copyright issues are not always as cut and dried as what you intend to do with the files.

    Well, try using Wondershare Video Converter. I am using this video converter for a long time and I can guarantee that it is one of the best and fastest video converter. Plus it is free to download and comes with different features where you can download and edit your videos, burn DVDs etc. So, I think this is the best for your preference.

    Thank you Maria Kate, i actually did their free trial but that would leave watermarks and offered Mac users no menus,(i emailed to be sure) so i canceled. I preferred not to pay the prices i see for burner software programs as i can't imagine me using it once i'm done with these few discs. By the way there are many bad reviews for this on Amazon so good that it works for you. Seems the few pay programs for Macs aren't without their issues from all i've read, and if you are paying a good amount , that is not something we should have to contend with, shutting down, etc.( I know in some cases it's the system you are using though)

    You can use Koyote Video Converter. I am using this video converter for a long time. This software is free. You can only download this program from the third-party downloading site, the official site has shut down.
