How do I download video from any websites on Windows 11?

Copper Contributor

I'm trying to find a way to download videos from any websites on my Windows 11 system. I've noticed that while browsing, there are several videos I come across on different platforms that I would like to save for offline viewing. However, I'm unsure about the tools or methods that are effective and safe to use for this purpose. Could someone recommend any reliable software or a step-by-step method that can assist in downloading videos from a range of websites without compromising on the video quality or the security of my computer? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.


[Update]: Thanks to netizens for their help, especially Kranyak’s recommendation. I decided to use the AllClipDown tool to download the video. This is a good app and downloads very quickly. I like it very much!

Let me tell you, I discovered a workaround to download video from any websites on Windows 11. What I do is use the built-in developer tools in the web browser. Yep, it's right there, hiding in plain sight! Here's how it works: I right-click on the webpage where the video is playing, then select "Inspect" from the context menu. This opens up the developer tools panel, where I look for the "Network" tab. From there, I start playing the video again and keep an eye on the network requests. Usually, you'll spot one that's related to the video file. Right-click on it, copy the URL, paste it into a new browser tab, and voila!
