HomeHow do I save videos?
Copy and paste the link to a video above and click "Save" or press enter. The download will automatically start and the filename can be copied to your clipboard. Paste it (Ctrl+V or +V) into the download box. If Internet Explorer shows the info bar or FireFox saves without asking for the filename, click here.
Is there an easier way to save videos?
Now, whenever you are watching a video on a supported site, all you have to do is click on the "Save" link that you created. It will open a new window and automatically start the download.
Alternatively, you can use this Save link that won't open a new window. Some browsers may not allow you to drag the links, so you must right-click and select Add to Favorites, Bookmark This Link, Bookmark Page, or something similar to add them. For Internet Explorer, select the Links folder and follow the instructions above to show it.
