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 Recorder is a perfect website video downloader ‒ 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.
Install the Online Video Downloader
Download the installation file for Movavi Screen Recorder. Open it and follow the on-screen instructions. Once the process is complete, the program will run automatically.
Adjust the Recording Frame
Draw the capture frame over the video you want to capture. You can also choose one of the ready-made preset frames from the Capture Area list once you’ve drawn an initial frame.
Rip the Video from a Website
Click the REC button to start the capture process. Start playing your video after the three-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. After you’ve hit the Stop button, your video will be automatically saved to your hard drive in MKV format and open in a preview window; here you can replay the video and edit it if necessary. If you want to cut out some sections or convert the recording to a different format, proceed to the next step.
Edit and Convert the Downloaded Video (Optional)
Does your recording contain ads or other unwanted content? Cut it out easily: just drag the white marker to the beginning of the part you want to delete and click the scissors icon, then place the marker at the end of the unwanted segment and click scissors again. Now select the marked section on the timeline and click the trash can icon to remove it from your video. To save the result and convert the video, click Save As.
In the new export dialog, choose one of the formats at the top of the window and click Save. Your final video will be ready in a few seconds.
