Instagram, owned by Facebook, is one of the largest social media platforms with millions of users across the globe. There is a library of videos that can be useful as well as innovative to keep them forever with you. Though the social media giant allows you to save the video in the application natively, the feature somewhat works like a bookmark and the video cannot be viewed offline. But, there are ways by which users can not only download these videos but also see them within the iPhone’s camera roll. Here is how you can do it.
As the default iOS browser does not allow you to save video files, we will be using a third-party application to accomplish it (Documents by Readdle). Before starting the process make sure you copy the link to the video you want to download. You can copy the link of the video by opening it in any browser or by hitting the three dots button next to the video and clicking on the copy link.
Step 1 – Head to App Store and download, Documents by Readdle.
Step 2 – Open the software and head to the compass icon on the lower right corner to open the browser.
Step 3 – Within the browser head to Savefrom.net.
Step 4 – Paste the Instagram video link which was asked before starting this procedure.
Step 5 – A list of options will open asking you the quality of video you want to download.
Step 6 – Press download and the download procedure should start.
Step 7 – In the application itself tap on the folder icon in the lower-left corner naming ”Downloads”
Step 8 – Once the download is finished press the three dots next to the video and select the copy or move option from the list.
Step 9 – Tap the “Photos” folder and the application will ask for permission. Accept it.
Once followed properly you can now see the downloaded video on your camera roll from where you can share and edit the video easily. We advise taking permission from the creator before posting the same somewhere else.
