How to Extract Videos from any Website
The Internet is full of amazing movies and video clips that are worth saving on your computer so you can watch them anytime. But downloading video materials from YouTube, Facebook, and other social networks using third-party software can cause problems for your computer. Movavi Screen Capture Studio is a fast, safe way to extract any video from any website ‒ the intuitive interface lets you copy a video to your computer in just a few minutes and easily save it in any format you like. You can even upload the recording to your tablet, smartphone, or media player to enjoy even when you don’t have an Internet connection!
Just download the appropriate version of the program and follow the instructions below ‒ you’ll be grabbing videos from websites in no time! The instructions apply to both the Mac and Windows versions.
Step 1: Install the Program
Download the installation file for Movavi Screen Capture Studio. Open it and follow the on-screen instructions. Once the process is complete, the program will run automatically.
Step 2: Adjust the Recording Frame
In the Windows version of Movavi Screen Capture Studio, click Capture screen to launch the screen recording mode; it will start automatically on Mac. Go to the site containing the video you want to capture, click the button in the center of the frame and drag the frame to the video itself. To set the appropriate size, pull on the yellow edges of the frame or choose one of the ready-made presets.
Step 3: Grab the Video
Click the REC button to start the capture process. Start playing your video after the five-second countdown, so you don’t miss anything. You can control the process with the buttons on the program panel or use hotkeys: in Windows, press F9 to pause/resume and F10 to stop; Mac users should press ⌥ ⌘ 1 and ⌥ ⌘ 2 respectively.
Step 4: Save Your Footage
After you’ve hit the Stop button, you can play the footage you’ve just made to see if any edits are needed. Click and drag the triangular markers at both ends of the timeline to cut off unnecessary parts of the video. If you want to do more editing (like removing ads from the middle of the video, adding background music, improving image quality, etc.), hit the Edit button to launch the built-in video editor that gives you all the tools you need for video editing.
If your footage does not require any editing, go ahead and open the Save as list and click Video and audio. Then just choose the format that fits your needs best and click Save. Your footage will be ready in a few seconds.
