I installed an app to record youtube url's directly to the dvd burner. The "copy/paste" method is rejected in any similar app as well. I CAN record YT url's to VLC, sometimes, or DEBUT in screen capture. The advantage of VLC is that I can minimize to the tray and still record. For DEBUT the screen must be open at all times during recording. I have 2 desktops so recording with DEBUT on one leaves the other to use. I can use a capture device to capture the same screen through it which WILL allow minimizing but that is awkward. I can also use an external stand alone dvd recorder but that is something I would rather not do. I decided to record to hdd using VLC or DEBUT on the second desktop. The issue is how do I then record TO the burner FROM the hdd on that same desktop? None of my research has revealed an answer. It must be a simple process. I know how to record FROM optical TO hdd using any recordable app but NOT the reverse. HELP!
