FrostWire is a peer-to-peer file sharing service, capable of downloading a wide array of files, including video files. Once the video files are placed onto your computer, it is possible to burn the content onto a DVD. With the video DVD created, the downloaded videos can be played over most computer systems or DVD players.
Things You'll Need
- DVD burner
- Blank DVD
Open FrostWire. It will connect to its server over the Internet.
Check off "Video" on the left side of the program screen, then type in the name of the video you want to obtain. FrostWire searches for anyone on the service with the movie. All results are displayed in the middle of the program window.
Select the video and click "Download." FrostWire connects to the individual with the video, and begins to download the content to your computer. The process can take several hours to complete (depending on your Internet connection, the other individual's Internet connection, and how many people are attempting to download the video). Once the video has finished downloading, it appears in the FrostWire download folder. The exact location for this folder varies depending on where you created the folder.
Burn the DVD
Load "Xilisoft DVD Burner" (see "Resources"). Insert the blank DVD, then click the "+" symbol to add the new videos. Chose the downloaded FrostWire video from the browser window that appears. Once the videos appear on the screen, click the menu options in the upper right corner of the program window. Select a background image and click "Burn." The downloaded video burns to the DVD.
Launch the CD/DVD burning software "Toast" (see "Resources") and insert the blank DVD. Select "Video DVD" from the side menu, then click-and-drag the downloaded movie into the main menu. Title the DVD and select a menu to use for the video. Click "Burn" and the FrostWire movie is placed onto the DVD.
Open up "Nero" (see "Resources"). In the welcome window select "Video DVD." Once the video DVD option loads insert the blank DVD into the computer. Choose a menu for your movie, then click "Add File" and select the downloaded file. Click "Burn" and the movie is placed onto the video DVD.
