Since Instagram became an improved version of Snapchat, the app’s success has only grown. People around the world publish photos and videos on the platform every day – the latter format has even long surpassed services like Vine, which had a very similar proposition.
Until a few months ago, Instagram limited your videos to a maximum of 15 seconds. Today it is possible to record up to 1 minute of images, which makes the service much more attractive.
As video volume has grown within the app, more and more people are looking for methods to save their captures or even videos they find interesting; After all, Insta has become a popular medium for both people and businesses.
But, so, can you save your Instagram videos? If not yet, rest assured that we see how! Check out some of the methods below:
1 – Using Insta Download app – Video & Photo
There is no better place than your phone to store Instagram videos, right? Well, it is precisely with this proposal that we will list here Insta Download – Video & Photo, an easy-to-use application that delivers what it promises.
Just go to Instagram, press the three dots at the top of the video to download, copy the sharing URL, and paste it into the app. As soon as you press the “Paste” button, it will proceed to download the video, but giving you a chance to change the file name and location.
Although a great choice for those with Android smartphones, this app is not available for iOS. Most services of this kind are blocked by Apple, but the Rapid Save app, available on the App Store, is a very similar – and even better-designed – alternative for iPhone and iPad users.
2 – Using a web service
Another very practical way is by utilizing some web service. The principle here is the same as downloading material from YouTube, for example – just copy the URL of the video you want, go to the Instagram Video Downloader page, paste the URL in question and you’re done! Your video can be downloaded by clicking the “Download” button.
Remember that, just like Instagram Video Downloader, there are a number of other services that work equally – though some offer additional features like Savedeo. In this tool, just add “qq” before “instagram” in the URL. From there, you press the “Enter” key, and you’re done: it goes to the video download page.
The Instawload site also works the same as Instagram Video Downloader, but has a simpler, more straightforward look, which makes it easy to download multiple videos in sequence. Another nice feature of it is the ability to download photos instead of just videos – this, in turn, the other services mentioned above are not able to do.
Finally, it is worth noting that we list several web services because, as we explain, each has its own differentials. Also, one of them may be unavailable just when you need it most – so we recommend that you keep all the options shown here.
