How to Save Instagram and Facebook Videos
Video Downloader for Instagram is a versatile app. Yes, you can download Instagram videos using the app but it can do a lot more. Along with downloading images, you get a handy way to repost them, copy tags, and share downloaded media to any app.
Step 1: Once you’ve downloaded the app, go to Instagram.
Step 2: Find the video you want to download and tap on the three-dot menu button in the top-right.
Step 3: From the popup, select Copy Share URL.
Step 4: As soon as you do that, you’ll see that Video Downloader’s icon shows up at the bottom of the screen. Tap on it.
Step 5: You’ll be taken to the Video Downloader app, and you’ll see that the download has already begun. Once the download is complete, you’ll get a “Video saved” banner in the bottom of the screen.
If you don’t see the app’s icon at the bottom after copying the URL, just open the Video Downloader app and it will automatically paste the URL from your clipboard and start the download process.
Once the Instagram video is downloaded, go to the History tab. If you want to repost the video to your profile, tap on Repost. Tap on the menu, and you’ll be able to copy the posts’ URL, tags or edit the video.
When it comes to downloading videos from Facebook, the process is a bit different. There’s no easy way to download videos right from the Facebook app, so you’ll need to download MyVideoDownloader, sign in with your Facebook account, browse your feed inside the app, and find the video you want to download.
Step 1: Open MyVideoDownloader for Facebook and sign in using your credentials.
Step 2: The app will show your Facebook feed. This is the mobile web view. Either browse for videos in your feed or go to a page to find a video that you want to download.
Step 3: Find the video in question and just tap on it. This will bring up a menu. From here, tap on Download.
Step 4: The app will start the download process in the background. You’ll be able to monitor the progress from the sticky notification and the progress bar at the bottom of the screen.
Once the video is downloaded, tap on the hamburger menu and select Downloads to view all your downloaded videos. Tap on the dropdown next to a video to share or delete a video.
