Many websites either embed or self-host video content of their own, and odds are you’ve come across some that are really useful or entertaining. In most cases websites don’t provide you with a download link however, which makes it difficult to save videos that you want to watch offline or transfer to other devices.
If you want to be able to download videos from any website your best option is to use Movavi Screen Recorder. Because it will let you record the videos you want to save directly from your screen, you can quite literally save any videos from any website.
Once you find a video that you want to download, keep it on pause and launch Movavi Screen Recorder. Immediately you can set it to record only the area where the video will be playing, by drawing a frame using your mouse cursor.
Next you should set Movavi Screen Recorder to record the audio track from the video you’re saving. To do that just make sure the ‘System Audio’ icon on the interface is highlighted in green, or click on it once if not.
That is all the preparation that is required, and when you’re ready you can then press ‘REC’ to start recording and play the website video within the 3 second delay that follows. When the video finishes, click ‘Stop’ and use the preview window that opens to make sure everything checks out. In the preview window Movavi Screen Recorder will also let you trim out any parts of the video you don’t need, by using the ‘scissors’ icon to split the video then the ‘trash can’ icon to delete unwanted parts.
When you’re fully satisfied, you can click ‘Save As’ and choose a format or preset to save your video. It is worth noting that while this covers everything you need to do to record a video from any website, Movavi Screen Recorder has numerous other features too. In fact you could set it to record in full screen, adjust the sound levels, capture keyboard and mouse actions, or set a different frame rate if you choose.
In short it is up to you whether you’d like to quickly set up Movavi Screen Recorder to download videos from any website, or customize its recording parameters more carefully. At the end of the day whichever route you choose it is safe to say you’ll be able to end up with the video footage that you need.
