We come across hundreds of Videos and Images on Social media on daily basis. Some images and videos are so hilarious that we want to download and save them on our device.

If it is an image, then you can take a screenshot of it and save it to your phone gallery. But if it is a video then you will need to download it to your device. Instagram Application doesn’t have a direct download tab to save videos. A user can just copy the link or simply bookmark it.

To download Instagram videos, there are some third-party applications that enable users to download and save Instagram videos on their phone.

Here are a few ways to download your favourite Instagram videos:

 Record videos straight from the Application

You can record videos from your Instagram Application and save them on your device. You can share or repost the videos as your Instagram stories. Go to Instagram settings.

There are separate toggles for saved videos, saved photos, and save original photos after posting. If you will tap on ‘Save videos after posting, your videos will be automatically saved to your device.

And to save your stories that you recorded directly in the App, click on “Save” icon once you will finish the recording. Your story will be saved to your Camera Roll.

If you posted your story, you can open it and tap on the three-dot icon and click Save/Photo Video. If your one Instagram story contains multiple videos, you can opt “Save Story” to save the whole thing as a video.
