Not sure about soft that will record streaming movies directly to dvd but you can always download then convert and/or burn to dvd with another soft. I know Orbit Downloader is a fairly good downloader, and if you search for free burners/converters you'll find they're everywhere. I'm sure you'll get more advice from others. I don't usually bother with streaming videos, got a thing for crisp and clear video so someone else could help more. Good luck.

Hmmm? Are we talking about free online streaming movies or pirated online streaming videos? If the latter I will be locking this thread — that type of discussion is not welcome here.

This is kinda the polar opposite of grabbing free online streaming movies but it may help you in the burning process of FREE online streaming movies.

I am a huge movie buff and a few months back I picked up a new sony tv that is internet ready.  I also picked up a sony blue-ray player also internet ready. Both the tv and the player come with usb wifi dongles capable of 300 meg wireless.

I went out and bought a used netgear rangemax and hooked in the tv and the usb wireless to my home network.  Both are flawless netflix on the tv or the blueray player.


I also decided to purchase a 1tb nas to see if I could stream movies wireless to the tv.  It works.

I took my full collection of dvd's and at that times used dvdfab to rip the main movie vobs to the harddrive.  I then had to use a freeware program called vobmerge to merge all the vob files into 1 vob and then just rename it's extension to mpg. Viola' now you have a streamable mpg 720*480 rez movie(each between 4gig and 8gig in size when finished).  The sony tv and player both have the ability to recognize a nas so once I directed them to it up popped a list of movies I had converted.


Took me a while to figure out how to do the blue-ray movies that I own but I started using Aiseesoft Blu-ray Ripper(registered thanks to dottech) and now am in the process of converting all my blue-ray movies to HD mpg files(each between 8gig and 11gig)


I will have a 4tb nas online in the next few days since my movies collection has grown(thank you walmart for cheap $5 double feature dvd's)


Even if your tv doesn't have internet availablity you can get a blue ray player that does and stream the movies thru the wireless connection on it to the tv.  My wife has an older 32″ sharp flatscreen and she is able to access the nas thru the dvd player and stream movies,music or the pictures we now keep on the nas.


I know thats not really what you were asking but there are a multitude of programs available to capture streaming video I have just never found the quality to be where I wanted it so I dont bother.  I guess you could re-transcode the movie and smooth it out but why bother when you can get dvd's and now even some 3 pk trilogy blue-ray movies for so cheap.


Call me lazy but I may never acutally put a dvd movie into a slot of a player again…I am now spoiled………………


If anyone needs or wants a detailed explanation of this and how it all works I will be happy to write one up.

@bulajap: There are a few things you can try. Here's a quick little chart:

I don't know about any more video services or about how to download from them.


@Vespers: I just use Netflix :P  Sure, there's no downloading, but at least I can stream it from almost any device.  I could also rip their DVDs (I don't, don't worry).

Also, and sorry about this, I'm a spelling stickler about two things: the viola and French.  You meant voilà, the French word for “here”, and instead you used viola, the musical instrument.

Maybe a NAS mounted on a viola?

Oh, the site that was :(

I think there are loads of free apps. Also there are giveaways where we could take advantage of.
