Easy ways To Save Instagram videos

Download Instagram videos on PC

On your PC, you can either do it manually or get help from an online video download service. I’ll show you both ways.

Method 1: Download from source code

You can inspect the source code of the video page and extract the download link from there. Here’s how:

  1. Open the video that you want to download.
  2. Right-click on it and select Inspect element. Depending on your browser the name could be different, like View page source.
  3. click inspect element

  4. Now press Ctrl + F keys to open Find option and type “.mp4” in it.
  5. The search will open up a section of code. Here, copy the link next to src= (the link ends with .mp4).
  6. copy video url

  7. Just paste this link in a new tab and the video will start playing. You can then right-click and select Save video as… to download the video.
  8. click save video as  

    Method 2: Use an online service

    For this purpose, I like the free online tool DownloadVideosFrom. In my experience, It’s a bit intuitive than others and adds a few extra features that you may find interesting. Here’s how to use it:

    1. Open the Instagram video that you want to download and copy its URL.
    2. Now open DownloadVideosFrom and paste the URL into the text field.
    3. Below, click on Download MP4 to convert and download the video.

    There are also options to download MP3 (only audio of videos) or Instagram photos.

    Download Instagram videos on Android

    On Android, the videos are automatically downloaded as soon as you view them, you just need to find where they are saved.
    Alternatively, you can use a third-party app to download videos without
    having to view them first. Let’s check both the methods:

    Method 1: Get Instagram videos from app cache

    To make this work, first go and watch the video that you want to download. Whatever part you will watch will be downloaded. Therefore, make sure you watch the whole video if you want the complete video.

    Next, open your phone’s File manager and go to Android > data > com.instagram.android > cache > videos. Here you’ll find all the videos you have viewed, and they will have .clean extension. You can tap on them and select Video option to play them.

    Note: If your phone doesn’t have a built-in file manager, then you can also use a third-party file manager like ASUS File Manager.

    Note:
    All these videos are saved as cache. If phone cache is deleted, then
    these videos will be deleted as well. If you want to permanently keep a
    video, then you should move it to a different location.

    Method 2: Use a third-party app

    If you want a more reliable method that won’t force you to view each video, then a third-party app will do. I recommend vidmate, it’s free and the ads are not too annoying. Let’s see how to use it:

    1. In the Instagram app, open up the video you want to download and
      tap on the menu at the top-right corner (the three vertical dots).
    2. Now tap on Copy link.
    3. Afterward, open up the Vidmate  for Instagram and tap on the Paste button.

    The link will be pasted and the video will be automatically downloaded and saved in the gallery.

    Download Instagram videos on iOS

    The options are very limited when it comes to iOS, but I know a good
    repost app that also downloads the Instagram photos and videos. Regrammer is a completely free app (ad supported) that will help you download any video from Instagram to your iOS device.

    Its usage is same as Video Downloader for Instagram. Simply copy the
    video’s URL from Instagram and paste it in the Regrammer app. Afterward,
    tap on Preview to open and download it. The video will be automatically saved in the camera roll and you’ll see options to repost it.

    Fainally

    I believe using a third-party is a much easier way
    to download Instagram videos. All you need to do copy/paste the link to
    get your video. Although the manual methods can also work well in
    certain situations. For example, if you want to download videos from
    your history of viewed videos, then the manual Android phone method is a
    great option.
