But what if the video in question *is* legal? Sure, the illegal ones are there, but I'd say about 90% are legal.

In most cases it would still be illegal as most videos offered online are for viewing on one computer only its illegal to reproduce them, admin is pretty strict on the issue. And of course 99% it is illegal things a member asks to do as if it wasnt the place that you get it from would tell you. But i may be wrong well have to wait and see.

Warriorscot is correct for the most part. If you're wanting to download a video via a file sharing program/etc, then we cannot help you here. :tazz: There are a few instances where it *is* perfectly legal to download such things...and that is why we ask where/how you're getting the videos. If it is via legit means, please DO let us know, and we'll be happy to assist you.

Moving this thread to the Video forum, where it better fits. :)

Can we even answer this question if it is legit? because then others may use the same method on illegal videos...

Well I've found out how to burn them now. I was told "To author your DVD is absolutely legal."
This forum was not worth it if every one just says its illegal, but thanks i guess... :tazz:

We never said that it was illegal in your case, just that in many cases it is illegal. A lot of people ask about how they can burn movies that they have downloaded from P2P programs such as KaZaA and Limewire, in which case it is illegal. That is how your first post sounded like. In your last post, it sounds like it is a video that you have created and own the rights to, in which case it would be legal.
