You don't. That's copyright infringement and possibly pirating. we can NOT assist you with that.

 

Short answer, Buy it.

Unless the DVD player can play MP4's you have to convert the MP4 to a DVD format. There are too many converters on the internet to count. You will need to do an internet search to determine which one, paid or free, you want to use. Hopefully somebody on the forum who has a converter can give some recommendations.

 

I am not sure DVD Flick will convert MP4 but is is a free open source program.

 

According to this Video it does convert MP4.

I have found Wondershare the discs im using are 4.7GB and the movie files are 1.1gb. They seem to fit and tells me put in another disc. There is an option of "Fit to disc" - will this cut some of it off? Or make the quality bad? OR will it force it to just fit the disc? Unless someone can help me compress the .Mp4 files without affecting it

MP4 compression is quite large. If the program does what I think it does it will compress the extracted MP4 file in order to fit on one disk but the quality will be somewhat less than uncompressed on two disks.

I am not sure. I don't have much experience with these conversion softwares. I would say to let the software fit the converted files to one disk if the difference is that small. You may want to contact the support site of the converter software. They would be better at answering that question.

Does your DVD player have a usb port ? (some do)

 

If yes then just copy the movie to a memory stick/flash drive and then play it through your dvd player.

 

Or if you TV has a usb port try playing it through there, or even use your TV hard drive recorder's usb port.

That is how I watch YouTube videos on my television, I simply drag and drop the video onto a USB stick and then plug the USB stick into my TV or DVD player. Works like a charm without any conversion.
