Download Free Flv to AVI Converter and convert that Avi to dvd using ConvertXtoDVD, it is a video conversion software, you can convert and burn all your videos and convert Avi to DVD or you can download a easy dvd creator here, http://www.supershareware.com/get/flv-to-dvd.html and convert the flv to dvd directly. You can convert the files to both the format.

Sorry but I deleted your post.

Two reasons.

1] The original post is now almost a year old, and so I would guess the original poster has moved on.

2] Offering ways to download YouTube videos conflicts with YouTube's licensing and copyright rules, and these forums do not allow such discussion.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
