However, in order to download Instagram videos, you have to take help from special tools as there isn’t any built-in way.

How to Download Instagram Videos

There could be many reasons why you need to download any video from Instagram. The video could be a meme, a How-to’ lesson, or just random kids dancing on Tiktok that you find really heartwarming. There are literally hundreds of videos on the Explore tab that are worth downloading to save or to share with our friends. These 5 best and simple methods will help you download any video you like on Instagram.

1. Use Screen-Recorder on iPhone

Just like you can take a Screenshot to save an Instagram photo, you can use a screen recorder to save an Instagram video. Android and iPhones both provide built-in screen-recorders that you can use to save any video from Instagram. Just go to the video you want to download, start Screen-recording and stop it when the video is over. On some phones, you will have to go to the settings and enable Screen-recording while on some it is enabled by default.

You can also use third-party screen recorder apps if you don’t like to use the built-in ones. Here are some good third-party screen-recorder apps.

You can pick any from this list and replace the built-in recorder. Although the built-in one is just fine for casual users.

2. Use Video Downloader for Instagram on Android

Video Downloader for Instagram is an amazing Android app available on the Play Store that allows you to download any Instagram video. First of all, you have to download and install this app on your device. Now go to the Instagram video you want to download, tap on the three-dots present above the video, and then select Copy Link.

Now launch the Video Downloader for Instagram app and paste the link in the empty field. Once the video is visible on the screen, tap on the Download button and choose Download video. You can also use it to download photos and copy hashtags as well. That’s it.

3. Use Blaze Browser & File Manager on iPhone to Download Instagram Videos

Blaze: Browser and File Manager is a simple to use tool to download files from various resources. If you are using an iPhone or iPad, you can install this app to download Instagram videos. To do this, firstly you have to install Blaze: Browers & File Manager from the App Store on your iOS device. Now launch the Instagram app and go to the video you want to download. Next, tap on the three-dots present above the video and select Copy Link.

Now launch Blaze: Browser & File Manager and paste the link in it. Once it says ‘File Detected,’ tap on the Download button and then choose the option Export video To Camera Roll. That’s it. The video will be then available on your device in a few seconds.

4. Use Instagram Video Download Online Tools on PC

Using online download tools is the most simple method in my opinion. You can use it on your PC, android smartphone’s browser, Safari browser on iPhone/iPad and any other device. There are several wonderful Instagram video download tools available on the web. Here are some of the best Instagram video download online tools.

Using them is also nothing less than eating a piece of cake. There are three simple steps.

5. Use an Instagram Mod to Download Instagram Videos

There are many modded versions of Instagram available on the web that come with advanced features like downloading photos & videos, zooming profile pictures, and many more. The user interface of the mod apps is very similar to the original app. The best thing is you don’t have to stop using the original app to access the mod. You can use them both differently. Here are some of the best Instagram mods that allow you to download videos.

Using the mods to download videos is very simple. You just have to download and install the mod, go to the Instagram video, tap on the three-dots present above it and then select Download. One thing I’ll recommend is that you shouldn’t use your main account with the Instagram mods that you don’t trust. You can simply use a spare account or create a random one to use the mods. Modded version has many useful benefits that the original ones can’t ever have.
