How to Easily Download Instagram Videos

Instagram Video Downloader
Written by Martins Okoi

Instagram is among the most popular social media platforms today and unsurprisingly, it is owned by Facebook. Over the years it has established itself as the go-to application for capturing, editing, and sharing photos, videos, and messages with not only family and friends but also with business associates and clients.

Given its setup from the get-go, Instagram is home to some of the most beautiful artistic content on any social media platform but considering that like its counterparts, Facebook and Twitter, it doesn’t have a built-in download feature for media content, this is my third entry in the series of video downloaders for social media platforms and my tool of choice is DownloadGram.

Download Videos from Instagram using DownloadGram

DownloadGram is a simple, straight-to-the-point website with which you can download Instagram videos in as few as 2 steps once you have the link of the file you want to download – no credit card required.

Here are the steps involved:

  1. Open Instagram in the mobile app or web browser.
  2. Copy to URL of the media content you want to download.
  3. Paste the link in the URL field on DownloadGram and click “Download“.
  4. When the download link is ready, click on “Download Video” and that’s it!
