IFTTT automates the entire archiving process. First, however, you’ll need to set up both Dropbox and IFTTT accounts. Once you’re signed up for both, select the Save your Instagram videos to a Dropbox folder option on the IFTTT website. After that, you’ll need to grant permission to IFTTT to access your Instagram and Dropbox accounts.You will have the ability to choose which videos are saved to the associated Dropbox account. You can create specific triggers to save videos you’ve specifically “liked,” too, or videos you’ve uploaded to Instagram. The videos will be backed up toDropbox as MP4s files.
The DreDown website isn’t going to win any awards for aesthetic, nor will it allow you to download Instagram videos from private users (even if you’re “following” them). But, within just a few clicks, you’ll be able to save your videos. First, click the Instagram link on the left-hand side of the screen. Afterward, copy the URL for the video you want to save and paste it into the video link. Hit DreDown! to the right of the text field, and click the blue MP4 Video link on the following page before choosing a save location for your resulting MP4. That’s it!
InstantSave is another option for downloading media in the browser. As you’ve probably come to expect, the process is fairly straightforward. Copy the link to the public Instagram post, click “Download,” and you’ll have an MP4 file downloading shortly. As with the other services mentioned, you can’t download media from private links, even if you’re following that account.
PostGraber is unique in the fact that it’s not limited to downloading only one item from a post. This is extremely useful if you intend to download multiple photos or videos from a single Instagram post — something that’s now possible thanks to Instagram’s slideshow feature. In terms of how it works, not much is different. Simply copy the link of the public Instagram post into PostGraber, click the “Go” button, and the media will start downloading.
Okay, so we’ve covered Android and web apps. But how do you download Instagram videos if you’re an iOS user?
Well, there are several apps in the App Store that profess the ability to download videos – but they’re often packed with ads and in-app purchases, and are difficult to use.
One exception is Regrammer. The app is entirely free, and although it’s ad-supported, the ads aren’t obnoxious and “in your face.”
Once again, you’ll need the URL of the Instagram video you want to download to make the app work. When you have it, open the Regrammer app, paste in the URL, and click Preview.
Enter EasyDownloader, an app that will let you snag any photo or video you desire from your Instagram feed without the need for cropping or rooting. Instead, saving content is just a couple of taps away.
Step 1: Install a copy of EasyDownloader on your Android 3.0 and higher device. Make sure to use the provided link for your install, as there are many different apps of the same name in the Google Play Store (and they don’t all perform the same function).
Step 2: Open the app to activate the download feature, then tap the Instagram icon near the top-right corner.
Step 3: When you come across a photo or video you want to save, tap the three dots under it and choose Copy Share URL. Instead of copying the actual link, the content will be saved to your device’s gallery. An alert will appear in the notification shade when the download is complete.
When you’re done downloading content, remember to exit the app so it isn’t running in the background. Open the app and tap the power icon in the top-right corner to exit.
