How to Download and Burn Videos to DVD With Free Software - Supports All Web Videos But YouTube

Download Youtube Burn DVDThis article originally had a step-by-step guide on "How to Burn YouTube Videos to DVD" but it was later modified because YouTube terms prohibit users from saving YouTube videos to the computer or burning YouTube videos to a disk.

This also applies to Google Video, MySpace or even Facebook - they allow you to embed or play videos in the browser but you are not supposed to record videos, copy them or transfer videos to a DVD as they could be copyrighted video clips.

You can however download FLV flash videos from Blip.TV (under CC License), burn them to a DVD or a CD disc and watch them on a large TV screen. In fact you can download multiple videos, burn them all at once and create a DVD movie with chapters and titles (if you have software like Adobe Encore). Follow the tutorial:

Step 1: Download the Internet Video to your hard disk in Flash Video FLV format using any of the free software programs like Orbit Downloader or an online Video conversion service like

Step 2: Download free DVD authoring software called DVD Flick - it takes all your videos in a batch, encodes (converts into a DVD format) and burns a DVD that can play inside any DVD player (region-free) or even your computer.

DVD Flick lets you add Titles, subtitles and audio tracks to your Video DVD. Alternatively, you can use Nero, Roxio or Alcohol to create DVD of web videos but they are not free like DVD Flick.

Caution: The resolution of YouTube video is 320x240 while DVD frame size is 720x480 for NTSC or 720x576 for PAL. Therefore the DVD video quality may not be the best.

How to Download Contacts from Facebook To Outlook Address Book

Facebook users are not too pleased with the "walled garden" approach of Facebook. The reason is simple - while you can easily import your Outlook address book and GMail contacts into Facebook, the reverse path is closed. There's no "official" way to export your Facebook friends email addresses or contact phone numbers out as a CSV file so that you can sync the contacts data with Outlook, GMail or your BlackBerry. Some third-party Facebook hacks like "Facebook Sync" (for Mac) and "Facebook Downloader" (for Windows) did allow you to download your Facebook friends' names, emails, mobile phone number and profile photo to the desktop but they were quickly removed for violation of Facebook Terms of Use. How to Download Contacts from Facebook There are still some options to take Friends data outside the walls of Facebook wall.

PhishTank Detects Phishing Websites by Digg Style Voting

OpenDNS, a free service that helps anyone surf the Internet faster with a simple DNS tweak , will announce PhishTank today. PhishTank is a free public database of phishing URLs where anyone can submit their phishes via email or through the website. The submissions are verified by the other community members who then vote for the suspected site. This is such a neat idea as sites can be categorized just based on user feedback without even having to manually verify each and every submission. PhishTank employs the "feedback loop" mechanism where users will be kept updated with the status' of the phish they submit either via email alerts or a personal RSS feed . Naturally, once the PhishTank databases grows, other sites can harness the data using open APIs which will remain free. OpenDNS would also use this data to improve their existing phishing detection algorithms which are already very impressive and efficient. PhishTank | PhishTank Blog [Thanks Allison] Related: Google
