In this post, I’m going to show you how to download social media videos to your phone easily.
Many times, when I make video posts, either on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or even Whatsapp, I’ve always been asked by many viewers to still send the videos to them, privately for download.
They seem to have not been able to figure out how to download social media videos as the developers of those apps did not provide a means (button) to download videos..
But sending a video to people individually is going to cost me a whole lot of data and time. And by the way it’s also not so good if you always have to contact people to send their social media videos to you privately.
So I think instead of sending videos to individual persons who requested for them it’s profitable that I teach people how to not only download any video on social media but also the best way to do it.
Best app to download social media videos
There are many apps that can perform this function but the best I’ve found is All In One Video Downloader. This is a simple app that you can find and download on Google play store.
To download and install this app just heed over to Google play store and search for All In One Video Downloader. Alternatively, you can simply click here.
How to download videos from Facebook
Anytime you come across a video you’ll like to have on your phone, the first thing you need to do is copy the link of that video.
How to copy any Facebook video link
To copy a Facebook video’s link, click on the three dotted vertical lines at the top of the video post as shown in the screenshot below
After clicking the three dots at the top right corner of the video a list of options to perform specific functions will appear. Click on the option to copy the link
After copying the link, go to the app you just downloaded (All In One Video Downloader) and run it.
Once the app is opened just click on the button that reads ‘Paste and download’. Wait for some seconds and the video will load up as seen below
From there you can either watch the video or download it. At this time all you have to do is click on the video, and finally click on download.
Boom! Your video will start downloading automatically.
Now let me show you
How to download videos on Instagram
If you’re using unofficial (third party) Instagram app like GB Instagram, there’s option right there in the app to download any video.
But as Mark Zuckerberg and his team are wagging war against unofficial apps and banning people’s accounts it’s better to stay away from these apps.
Thankfully you can use All In One Video Downloader to download Instagram videos without being banned.
Again all you have to do is find the link of that Instagram video you want to download and copy it. Let me show you how to do it.
How to find and copy the link of any any Instagram video
Go to Instagram and find the video you want to download
Click on the three dotted vertical lines at the top right corner of the video and a list of options will pup up. Click on copy link
After copying the link, go over to All in one Video Downloader app and run it. Paste the link and click on download button. Your video will start downloading immediately.
