First you need to download the video from youtube, you can only download 720p and lower resolution.

Here are two tools:
https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts...eos-as-mp4
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/...oadhelper/ don't bother installing the converter, unless you pay it watermarks videos.

Then you'd need to convert the file to an appropriate format and burn it to a DVD. Note a standard dvd only has 480p resolution. You can use tools like this to do this:
http://www.dvdflick.net/
http://burn-osx.sourceforge.net/ if you have a mac
Windows DVD Maker which is included in Vista and Windows 7 + codecs / converter software

Use keepvid.com to download the video. Download and install DVD Flick (as mentioned above) as well as ImgBurn. Use DVD Flick to create the DVD (ImgBurn will burn it automatically) and you are all set!

Why not use Freemake Video Converter?
http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter/

I haven't used it since they stopped updating late last year (and since many YT videos wouldn't download), but looks like they are starting to update once more. Definitely worth giving it a shot.

keepvid is a solid option for downloading a youtube video that doesn't require installing anything. keepvid lost my recommendation years ago because of it's java applet dependent design, but java is no longer required.

Does keepvid download at the highest possible resolution? Can you specify the resolution?

You can choose the quality, but I'm not sure if it always gives you the highest option that is on YouTube itself.

Due to changes with youtube itself, you can only download a file that contains both audio and video for resolutions up to 720p. Over 720p, audio and video are separate files, and yes keepvid can download those files although I'm not sure you can go over 1080p. Generally, I wouldn't bother downloading a youtube video at a resolution over 720p.

Thanks. Just wanted confirm that if a video had 720p and lower resolutions then would want to download the 720p and not the lower resolution.

just tested a 4k youtube video on keepvid, it's lack of the webm format. which has the VP9 codec, but the mp4 one only x264

i found out when comparing to youtube-dl, a command prompt tool
