In this age of social networking, we humans are giving the comfort of various options to stay entertained & stay connected with our loved ones. One cannot imagine their life without apps like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat. One can use Instagram for photo & video sharing to interact with life’s moments with their friends & family.
Well, you might have always wondered if you could download those cute baby videos or some creative artwork videos; Instagram doesn’t integrate an option to download the videos directly due to its privacy policies. Still, there’s a way around to download them on your Android device. Just go with the method you prefer from the below options & you are good to go.
List Of Options For Downloading Instagram Videos & Pictures:
1. Android File Manager
Nowadays, you don’t have to be a professional at everything, so here’s the method which has no fancy tricks or tips or app to download the Instagram videos. All the Instagram videos you get to see while using Instagram are all saved in your phone’s memory. Surprised? Well, here’s the thing.
To get using this technique is to Open the default Android File Manager > Go to Data > Com.instagram.android > Cache > Videos. The only thing to do over here is to change the file extension of the video you require to ‘.mp4’ & there you have the video that you wanted.
2. Video Downloader for Instagram
If you don’t want all that hassle of finding & renaming the video files, you can opt for the third-party app from the bunch of apps from Google Play Store.
One such app is Video Downloader for Instagram. This magical app provides you with the functionality to download the videos and reshare them from Instagram and the Vine app with just a single tap.
Well, that’s the additional functionality you can use. Avoiding all that hassle by directly adding the Videos to your phone’s Gallery App. One more added function this app provides is that it can even get the tags associated with the Video.
Now, this method is a bit fancy. In the modern smartphone era, internal onboard storage is quite precious. So if you want to get rid of the clutter & if you’re going to get the Videos directly into your cloud account like Dropbox, then it’s a win-win situation.
If you want to automate the process a bit, then this app fits for you. With IFTTT, you can download all the Instagram videos that you like. To use this app method, you need an IFTTT account, your Instagram account & your Dropbox account.
It looks like a tedious process, but it isn’t. It works like a charm. The video you like on Instagram directly gets saved into your Dropbox account.
4. Post Grabber
Post Grabber is a bit different from the rest of the downloader tools. Given that the most popular feature Instagram offers lately is to post multiple photos or videos in a single post, other downloader apps download only a single picture or a single video from the post.
That increases the hassle to download the content. Post Grabber here comes as the savior; it can download all the multiple contents of a single Instagram post at once.
Just get the Post Grabber app installed on your Android device > Copy the link of the desired post from Instagram > Paste that link in the search bar of Post Grabber & Click on Go. Sit back & let the app save the videos for you.
Do note that this app doesn’t work for the account that has the privacy setting ON. It works only on public Instagram posts.
Dredown, which was previously known as Instadown. It works on a similar pattern as that of Post Grabber. Just copy the link> paste it in the search bar & click on Dredown, which will initiate downloading the videos.
The main advantage of the Dredown app is that apart from Instagram, it helps you download the content from almost all of the popular social media platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Keek, Twitter, Twitch, Vine, Vimeo, Metacafe, Vevo, Kohtakte & Tumblr.
So, all the apps discussed above were regarding Android. So, if you’re an iOS user, then you need not worry. There are many apps on the App Store that can download the Instagram content, but they ruin the smooth user experience as they bombard with the apps & tons of in-app purchases.
Well, Regrammer comes with the same functionality & is free though it comes with a few ads which do not just get on popping on your screen wildly like others.
Just like some Android apps discussed above, Regrammer also works the same method of using links. Copy the URL of the desired post or video from the Instagram > paste it in the search bar of the Regrammer app > click on Preview & Viola. The video will get downloaded.
After clicking on the Preview button, you may choose to either download the video on your iOS device or repost the video directly. Cool, isn’t it?
So as a bonus, this final method is a web-based app, especially if you use Instagram on your PC. So Gramblast comes in handy over here.
As with all of the downloader tools, the same methodology is used to download Instagram videos. Just Grab the link of the desired Instagram video > Paste the link in the Gramblast web app > Click over the download button. Yes, no rocket science, there you have the video ready on your computer.
Disclaimer: Do keep in mind while using the above apps to hinder anyone’s privacy or video copyrights of Instagram. You must download responsibly & do not repost the content without giving proper credit to the artist or a person associated with the downloaded posts.
So, go ahead, download & enjoy your favorite videos from Instagram. Until next time, Adios!
