Part 2. How to Burn YouTube to DVD with File Explorer

If you don't want to download and install extra software to burn a YouTube video, you can try an online downloader and Windows' built-in features.

First of all, you need to download YouTube videos via online downloaders. Some of the most famous online services include SaveFrom, ClipGrab, 4K Video Downloader, YTD Video Downloader, and Airy YouTube Downloader. However, as YouTube downloads are not allowed, online services are taken down frequently. So you can try any online downloader you can find on Google.

After you download the YouTube videos you'd like to burn, next, you can use the File Explorer on Windows 11 and Windows 10 to burn the YouTube videos to DVDs.

Step 1. Insert a blank DVD disc into the DVD drive. As soon as you insert it, it will pop up a window asking you to select an option to Burn a Disc. To burn YouTube videos to a DVD for later playback on a DVD player or computer, choose "With a CD/DVD player". Then give the disc a name and click Next.

An all-in-one YouTube to DVD converter, which is free, is the easiest and fastest way to convert YouTube videos to a DVD. More than that, a desktop downloader is much safer than online downloader tools. However, it does make sense to use an online YouTube downloader and Windows' own burning ability to handle the task, as it doesn't need to install any third-party tool. Though we recommend you use WinX DVD Author, you can try both methods as they are all free.
