I want to burn 3 flv videos to DVD, I have Nero but I not sure if the dvd will read the videos! because I have tried the flv videos with USB direct to TV but it didn't work, so now I want to burn them to DVD and watch the videos through DVD but I am not sure if the FLV videos will be converted properly so the DVD player in my TV will read them.
Do I have to convert the videos to some other format and then burn them to DVD or I just need to burn them to DVD with nero directly?

Thanks for your time!

Are you trying to turn them into a proper DVD i.e. MPEG-2 or do you want them converted to some other format so that your DVD player will read the files and play them from the disk? –  Rup Mar 27 '11 at 11:34

Burning as data disc will bring unchanged FLV files onto your CD. I don't know whether your DVD player can playback FLV, mine cannot (though it's a rather old one).

Another option would be to burn as Video DVD. You can use e.g. Nero Vision to author a "real" Video DVD, it should convert the files to the appropriate format
