How To Download Videos Without Any Software – Free Internet News

Have you ever wondered how to download videos without any software?

It can be hard to find guides who will not take you to suspicious sites and spam. Also, downloaded videos are of low quality. Do not be afraid, read on to learn how to download videos without installing any software. Make sure you have high definition videos, which is another benefit.

Where and when to download videos?

Although the methods described in this guide can be used on many video sharing and social media sites, we recommend uploading videos for your personal use only, and uploading these videos only on publicly provided websites.

For example, we do not recommend downloading videos from websites such as Netflix or from other streaming sites that require a subscription. Below is a detailed guide on where to download videos.

We do not recommend downloading videos from any site for business purposes.

How to download videos without software?

Basics for downloading video

Most video streaming sites only allow offline downloads on their mobile apps. There will be download buttons on every video you watch. They look like arrows pointing down. When you use them, every video you download will be stored in the application, not on your device’s disk. For example, you can learn in-app how to download movies from Netflix.

Take the YouTube mobile processor for example. The download process is similar on iOS and Android: select a video, watch the download button (arrow) and click voila. The video will soon be available for offline viewing. You can find the download (s) in the “Library” tab. If you are offline, YouTube will redirect you to your downloads by default.

If you do not have YouTube Mobile Apps, how to download? Across the Internet, many websites teach how to download videos without software. But these sites can be complicated at times. Using them will cause a virus infection in your computer. It is not uncommon for sites that provide such services to be overshadowed. Sometimes they are filled with “download” buttons and it can be hard to say which one. If you click the wrong button, you will be in a world full of digital misery.

Where to download videos

Many sites give you the option to capture videos from any streaming site. Such as YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion. These sites are very convenient because they often work the same way.

Wondering how to download videos without software? These sites make it easy for you.

Here’s how to download videos without software using only one method.

Trouvez la vidéo que vous voulez télécharger.
Copiez l'URL de la vidéo et collez-la sur un site de téléchargement de vidéos de votre choix.
Cliquez sur "télécharger".

That’s all. Your browser receives the video directly from the URL, and the quality is good, but not passable. Most video capture sites on the Internet work in this way, making it easy to download even for beginners.

In the following section, we list the most reliable video scraping sites you can use to retrieve videos from any streaming site. Take a look at the screenshots showing how the process works.

Top Video Grabber Sites: YouTubeMP4, Catchvideo

Two great sites for capturing videos

Both of these sites are great for getting videos from sites including YouTube:


Both offer decent video resolutions, allowing c video to have five quality settings: 360p, 480p, 720p (HD), 1080p (full HD) and 4K. High resolution, such as 1080p and 4K, is only available if you upload the original video in those properties.

Here are the common steps to downloading videos using these video cropping sites:

Trouvez la vidéo que vous voulez télécharger.
Copiez l'URL de la vidéo.
Collez-la dans l'espace prévu à cet effet.
Si vous utilisez Catchvideo, choisissez la résolution dans laquelle vous souhaitez télécharger la vidéo.
Cliquez sur "convertir" pour YouTubeMP4 ou "attraper" pour CatchVideo.
Attendez que le traitement de la vidéo soit terminé.
Cliquez sur le bouton "télécharger".

Wait for your browser to finish downloading the video you want, that’s all. Unless you specify a different path, the system will save the file to the Downloads folder by default. When using CatchVideo, your media will be at the resolution you prefer.
