I’m an old, non-techie, geezer so can you guys help me out, here?
Is there any way to save videos to a thumb drive or CD? I can’t figure it out.
I thought about even trying to hook my laptop to the tv, playing the video from the laptop and maybe recording to a CD with a CD recorder from the tv ???
But, I have NO clue as to what hdwr I need or as to the process.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

depends on where the video is located… there are sites out there that will convert youtube videos and download them to your PC… other than that, i’ve used firefox to pull videos as well…

for the firefox method, right click on the page, and click “Show Page Info” when that box pops up, click on the “Media” tab, then scroll down that list till you get to the video, and then save it to your PC.
