« on: March 02, 2017, 07:04:43 AM »

Downloading anything to DVD is a waste of time. It takes longer for the DVD to burn the file than it does to download it. Download it first to your hard drive, then burn it to DVD and delete the hard drive copy

Downloading to your HD to watch later, with slow internet speeds, is better than trying to watch one when it stops very 10 seconds to buffer. For example I have DSL that's barely better than dial-up. I can download a 25 minute video in about 8 minutes. Watching it constantly buffering can take up to 45 minutes to watch.  I save all my downloaded vids to one folder, rename them when I save them, and can go back to review them any time I want.

Not sure if satellite internet is something you'd want to consider or is available in our area, but here is a review/comparison http://www.reviews.org/internet-service/best-satellite-internet-providers/

If you are thinking of viewing videos, beware the data caps for wireless satellite Internet. I already checked it out in my area, and they were 2-6 Gb per month.  My DAILY use exceeds that!
