    Edit: ok. Thought you meant old VHS tapes for a minute.

     

    I'd use one of the utilities that let you download from you tube then burn it afterwards.

    Because I'm on a Mac I can't give you the specifics you want but I think what you'll need is some sort of 'video screen capture' software to record the video as it's coming in live. You need to watch that the software also records audio. It's a real fiddly thing to do even if you have the right software in my experience, and if possible it might be better to watch it live and then get your hands on a recording later?

     

    Sorry I can't give you the answers. Maybe some other ideas from other members? I'll try and look for some software...

    It's probably going to be easier, yeh.

     

    What I was thinking was that even if you managed to get it working OK, you're going to struggle to actually watch it as it happens, which obviously you'll want to do as you'll be worried about getting the thing to work right!!

     

    I mean this is only my experience, hopefully all this thread bumping will see others come in with a much better idea!
