You can save the attachment in your local disk and then use a burning program to burn the Video on to a CD.

Brasero , kdenlive .. etc (Burning programs)

It would be helpful if you tell IF you use an e-mail client (e.g Thunderbird) or you open your e-mails direct from browser.

Thanks

Sure, you can even use devede to make a video DVD of the clip

Thank you for the reply.
Not knowing all the computer language I don't know how to save the
attachment in my local disk and how to do it. I also don't know how to
find or use a burning program to burn the video on to a CD. I have
Thunderbird as an e-mail client.
, also Fire-fox as a web browser, and Ubuntu as operating system and
Linox as Program. The attachment came over the Email.
Thanks
Jim

Right click the attachment, see what it says. Ubuntu installs brasero by default, if you search Dash for the word 'burn' it shows up....

Don't be afraid of your OS. If it seems obvious, it's probably right

Thank you for your reply. I don't know the process of doing this and I
don't know what devede is, where to go to find it and what to do when I
get there. Not to computer savy.
Thanks
Jim

  Thanks again.
When I click the attachment at the bottom of the E-mail I only have the
choices of (open-save as - detach and delete). I don't know what
brasero is and where to go search for Dash for the word "burn". Also
don't know what OS is or what it means. Sorry for my lack of knowledge.

Then you want to save as, so you can use the file in the app later.

Once you have saved the file somewhere safe let us know the name of the file including any extension (the extension is the important bit) and we can tell you what you need to do either to view it or to create a DVD that can be used with a standard DVD player.

I am sending you a copy of the email with the attachment. I want to burn
the attachment to a CD. I now have the attachment on my desk top, apps-
movie player and in my recent files. I can view it with no problem, but
I want to copy it to a CD. Are the words, CD, disc, DVD all the same thing?

Thanks again
Jim

If the file is under 700MB use CD.
If is > 700B use a DVD.

Use Brasero Disk Burner (is pre-installed in Ubuntu) and click on Data Project , add (+) the file and burn.

Thanks

jc@infowest.com (jc-p) said : #12

I think I am getting a little closer to accomplish my project. However
questions remain. How do I find out if the file is over or under 700MB?
I can go to Brasero Disk Burner and I can click Data Project. I get New
Data Disc Project window opens, the attachment I want to make CD of
shows up on the page. I click on (burn) located at the bottom right hand
corner of the page, It takes me to the page (location of image file), I
don't know what to do from here. The attachment is 6.3MB. Other question
!! What is the difference between a CD and DVD?
Thanks again
Jim

Right click on the file and click properties. There you should be able to see the size of the file.

Thanks
