How to download IGTV videos | iOS and Android | Easier than clicking this link

Let’s talk about how to download IGTV videos.

Many of you have already been asking this question, so I thought it would be a great opportunity to answer it, while at the same time, share some tips on how to grow an Instagram account.

Now, before I even say anything…

Disclaimer: We are not responsible for any legal actions that you might get involved in if you unlawfully use somebody else’s video.

Stealing other people’s content is wrong.

With that being said, there is something called Fair Use, which “allows people to use someone else’s copyrighted work without permission in certain circumstances.”

Read more about Instagram’s point of view on this in its article: What is fair use?

If you follow their rules, then you won’t have any problems.

Let’s start…

How to download IGTV videos?

Instagram itself does not have a download button or any feature that allows you to easily save videos to your phone. However, you can still do it. There are many ways in which you can go about doing this, I will try to talk about the easier ones for both Android and iOS users.

Download IGTV videos for iOS users:

Method 1: Video Saver app

We will be using an app called Video Saver.

Notice this: When you install the app, it appears as “Video Saver”, however, in the AppStore, it’s being displayed as “Repost for Instagram Photo Video.”How to download videos from IGTV step 0

Simply make a search for “video saver” and download it.

Once you do that you don’t have to open Video Saver, yet, instead just open Instagram and go to IGTV.

After you are inside of IGTV, look for the video that you want to download, and open it.

Let’s take this John Mayer video for example.

Step 1: Press on the three dots

The first thing you need to do is press on the three dots at the bottom of the video.

This will open another box, in which you can either, copy the video link, report it, or hide it.

Step 2: Copy the link

You will have to copy the video link. This is a very important step because this is how eventually the app will know which video you want to download.

After you do that, you will get a message that says that the link was copied to the clipboard.

You can now close the Instagram app if you want.

Step 3: Open Video Saver and press the download

Once you open the app, you just need to do two things.

1- Press download

2- Go to the “tasks” tab

As shown in the image below, Video Saver has already pasted the link that you copied from Instagram. You won’t have to do it yourself.

Step 4: Wait for your video to be downloaded

Now that you are in the “task” menu, just wait for it to show the green checkmark.

Download IGTV videos for Android users:

Method 1: IGTV Video Downloader app

Many new apps are starting to get released for things like downloading IGTV videos. There are many of them, too many I should say.

Now, we won’t be like any of these other websites that simply tell you whatever they want. We have actually tried all of them. The one in the red box (picture below) is the one we liked the most and we recommend you use that one.

Why is it better than the other? 

The interface is just more professional and easier to use. For example, it asks you if you want to download the video right after you copy the link.

When it comes to how many people have downloaded before, it is understandable that the number is low. People on the internet actually still think you can’t download videos from IGTV. If you see one, send them this article.

Step 2: Select “copy link”

After that, simply press on “copy link” so that your phone automatically copies the video’s link it to your clipboard.

Now, the first time that I did it, it just showed this message:

On the other hand, it can show you something like this:
