How to download Instagram Videos on Android: Be it your own wonderful creations or quality content from your friends, downloading videos from Instagram is easy. Go ahead and choose one of the methods that I have listed below.
- Check your android file manager
Assuming you have an Android smartphone, you do not even need to use any fancy websites or third-party applications to download your Instagram videos. Every Instagram video you watch is automatically saved in your mobiles’ file manager.
To get the video, use your phone’s file manager to navigate to Data > com.instagram.android > Cache > Videos. Change the extension of one of the files to MP4, and voila, then you will instantly have the video on your mobile phone.
- Video downloader for Instagram
Incase working with your file manager sounds too laborious, all Android users can find an abundance of specialist applications in the Google Play Store.
Most popular among these specialized applications is Video Downloader for Instagram. This lets you download or repost videos or from both Instagram and Vine with a single tap. The content is automatically added to your phone’s Gallery application.
If you want to download all your Instagram videos or every Instagram video you like? You are expected to set up an IFTTT recipe. In order to get the recipe working, you must create an IFTTT account, an Instagram account, and a Dropbox account.
The wonderful result is an automatic process in which any Instagram video you add or like is automatically downloaded and added to your chosen Dropbox folder.
The PostGraber differs from a lot of the other web-based Instagram downloader tools. While most of the other tools can only grab one piece of content per post, PostGraber can download all the photos and videos that are associated with a single post.
The only thing you need is the URL of the Instagram post you want to download. You can get it on the mobile application by going to Copy Link, or from the browser’s address bar on the web application. Then paste the URL into the box on the PostGraber website and click Go. The web application will take care of the rest.
N/B: This particular application only works with public Instagram posts.
- Using Dredown to download Instagram Videos on Android
The Dredown, which is also still sometimes referred to by its previous name, Instadown, is one of the original Instagram video downloader tools, and it is still waxing strong.
Just like PostGraber, the only thing Dredown needs to work is a URL. You just need to paste the URL into the box and click Dredown. Within a few seconds, your browser will start downloading the MP4 file.
The Dredown software works with more other services than just Instagram. It can also be used to download content from YouTube, Facebook, Keek, Twitter, Twitch, Vine, Vimeo, Metacafe, Vevo, Kohtakte, and Tumblr. For all the services it supports, you just need the URL of the post, video, or photo you want to save.
