Social networks usually don’t add video download functionality to their sites. Instagram is no exception, but users still have this need. It is quite possible to download the video even without using third-party tools.
Download video by viewing item code
It should be noted that this method works only on a computer, since it is not possible to display the element code on mobile devices.
To download the desired video, you need to right-click and select “View element code” or “Explore element”. Selecting this item will open a new page that will display various information.
Next, you need to press the key combination Ctrl + F and enter “video” in the search bar. Then you need to find a link to this entry. After it is copied, you need to paste it into the address bar.
After that, it is enough to call the context menu by right-clicking on the video and click on the “Save video” item.
Downloading with third-party programs
To some, the above method may seem too complicated. Therefore, on the Internet, you can find a whole variety of different Internet resources and software solutions that greatly simplify the process of downloading videos from Instagram.
Also, the indisputable advantage of these methods is the ability to use them on mobile devices.
One of the most famous sites is InstDown. This resource allows you to download a video without much manipulation. To do this, just copy the link to the video to the clipboard and paste it into a special area on the site.
Another popular option is the IFTTT service. It allows you to download video material by clicking the like. However, for correct operation, you will have to spend a little time on configuration. To do this, you need to link your Instagram account with the download storage and install the application.
These operations will not take much time, but they will allow you to quickly download your favorite videos.
We should also mention the Flow for Instagram service, designed specifically for Apple users.
It is quite easy to use and allows you to download a video by selecting the appropriate function in a special menu. This service can also save images published on a social network, as well as disable the automatic launch of videos.
