Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, with millions of videos uploaded to the Facebook-owned app every day. Continue reading to find out how you can download Instagram videos, stories and reels online or with an app.
To download an Instagram video, reel, or story using a Windows computer, open the video in your web browser and copy the URL of the page:
Next, right-click on the video and select the Save video as... option:
Choose the folder where you want to save the video, name it, and click Save:
This video will be downloaded in MP4 format, which can be played with VLC media player.
If you're using Windows 10, there is a new screen recording tool. Press Window + G at the same time and the recording program, Game DVR, will open. Although it was designed to record Xbox games, you can use it to capture whatever content you want.
Finally, if you have a Mac, press Shift + Command (⌘) + 5 at the same time to make all kinds of screenshots or record your computer screen and record videos.
In general, the popular apps work similarly. First, you must access Instagram and choose the content you want to download. If you press on the three dots that appear next to the image, you will see the Share the link option.
Copy the link to your clipboard and go to the download app you choose, then paste the link. Click on the Download, or similar option, and the image or video will be saved directly on your mobile. Simple as that!
Two neat apps to try are FastSave and SuperSave.
