YouTube help

by AnbroBR / September 27, 2016 1:50 PM PDT

I was wondering if there is a program available (or if my computer already has this capability) for taking a video from YouTube and putting it onto a DVD for future viewing? I watch many documentary-type videos, mainly political / economic in nature and would very much like having DVDs of these documentaries, in the event that someone visits me and would like to watch the particular video on a TV. I get tired of staring at a computer monitor and would very much like to have DVDs available for this purpose. Thank you very much!

What you are asking is against YouTube policy.

Why not use the watch later feature and stream it to TV.

Youtube only allows that when the download button shows.

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?
