    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!

    i tried freemake did not work for me. did not try vso. debut works well except the entire screen needs to be active for recording. after recording the recording can be burned to disc using their built in software and burner tray. any media type will work in my case. i burned an iso. and one dvd. vlc works for recording yt some of the time. copy/paste or manually entering url. might reject it in either case with a useless error message,
