    Hi, without further programs installed, you can't burn a DVD from video files in Win 10. You can burn data files or iso files.
    Make DVDs on Windows 10 - Windows Help -


    Burning a video DVD requires software that supports menu creation, chapters etc.

    E.g.
    Windows 10: WinX DVD Author - Free DVD Maker, Free DVD Burner Software

    If it is DRM protected, it will never burn to a DVD.

    A DVD authoring software is usually needed. What are the type of movie files, MKV ? These videos need to be converted to certain types of files to be able to be played on many DVD players. I use a program to make Blu-ray movies which is excellent but at a cost, they also make one for just DVD movies. Makes flawless movies with 2.0, 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS. I never wasted a blank DVD or Blu ray disc using this software.

    If your going to use a service to download online how else would you pay, cash ? Vudu is one. Most stuff these days are streaming movies. http://www.hulu.com/start?pdv=c&pmt=...tream%20movies

    Hi there
    If it's an MKV or MP4 file you can actually burn to a DVD using DeDvDE
    It's primarily Linux now but you can create DVD's (not Blu Ray) with the older Windows version - link in the article - version 3.17 for Windows

    DeVeDeNG 4.7.0 - Download

    You can burn to an ISO image as well.

    I haven't used this for a while as most of my movies etc are now rips and I play via streaming but if you have to create an ISO it should still work (The Linux version works with no problems --been a while since tried the Windows version though). I used to use this to make physical DVD's for my parents of some of my ripped / downloaded movies -- I've since taught them how to access my server -- much easier !! so they can access via their smart TV rather than mess around with a physical DVD player.

    Cheers

    Unless they're public domain you can't.

    No there is not. Under the gray area of the rules, it says that as long as you have physically purchased the copy of the DVD or Blu-ray, you are allowed one image copy.

    There are tools for Linux that are used. But not always do they work.

    The last one I copied was the DVD they ran at my wife's grandmother's funeral.
