    I downloaded a video using Internet Download Manager. If I open IDM, I do see it listed at 126.46KB, so I think I have it. But I have been unable to burn it to a DVD. I am using Nero Burning Rom 10, and have tried a few different things like, DVD-Rom (ISO), DVD-Rom (Boot), DVD Rom UDF) etc. It seems like it is burning it to the DVD, but nothing plays then. Any suggestions ? Thanks, Mike

    That's an awful small file size for a video.

    Try downloading it without using a download manager.

    Thanks glc for the reply. This is a short 4 minute video of the Memorial Dedication we had to honor our son. I tried other methods of downloading but nothing worked. I asked the TV station, but they want $45.00 to make me a copy. Pretty steep for a 4 minute video.

    Is the video viewable on a web site somewhere?

    Is the video viewable on your computer after you downloaded it?

    Thanks rjfvillarosa for the reply. The video is posted on the TV station website, and also on my Facebook site. Not sure how it got there. In the past I was able to download a video from Facebook by following a few steps. The first step was to open the video, and change the "WWW" to just an "M" but there is no "WWW". Here is the link, I hope War at Home: Raising Awareness for Soldiers Suffering from PTSD

    Mike, I just recorded a few seconds of that video with no problem, so ispring free cam will work for it.

    I'm sorry about your son.

    Most of video download via IDM is .FLV file type or .MP4 . If you want to play with DVD console, i think you must convert it to MP4-H264.
