Download Instagram Video on Android
Get Instagram videos from the app cache
Very firstly, we need to watch the video which we need to download. Once the video is watched, whatever part the user is willing to download will be downloaded.
Hence, the only catch is that one has to watch the entire video in order to download the whole video.
Now how to extract the video?
Users will have to open File manager on the android device and click on the data option and then select com.Instagram.android. You will find the video under the cache option, where the user will find all the videos which have been viewed on the device.
Users will also find a .clean extension which could be tapped to select a video option to play them.
If the user wants to convert the videos to an audio format, then simply rename them and change the .clean extension to ‘.mp4’.
Another method to download the video on your android device is by downloading a third party application, which is considerably more reliable than any other mode, and certainly does not force you to view the entire video.
The third-party app will be free and also the advertisements are also not much annoying.
Let’s learn to use the third party app:
On Instagram, open the video which you mean to download.
Tap on the menu section which is placed on the right corner at the top (three vertical dots icon, to be precise)
Tap on ‘Copy link’
Then open up ‘Video Downloader’, for Instagram
tap on the ‘Paste’ button
The link will be pasted and the video will start downloading automatically and will be saved in the gallery.
