There are lots of video downloaders on the Internet. The tool I use to download Brightcove videos is EaseUS MobiMover, available on both Windows and macOS systems.

Part 2. How to Get Brightcove Video URLs in 2 Ways

I found that there are questions about where to find the right URLs for videos on Brightcove. Some video platforms make it hard for people to find the real video link. Here I have prepared two ways for you.

Method 1. Locate the Video URL if There Is an Option to Share

If you want to download one video you previously uploaded to Brightcove, sign in to your account and enter the "Media" menu. All your videos will be listed here.  Click "Publick and Embed..." > "Push to Web." There will appear a popup and scroll it down to find the video URL under the option "Preview in browser." Then copy the link and paste it to EaseUS MobiMover to download the video to your PC or iPhone.

Method 2. Get the Video URL When There Is No Option to Share

If there is no option to share or you don't have access to it, you still get a way to know the Brightcove video URL. There is a rule to generate URLs for videos on Brightcove. See it below.

Therefore, if you have the account ID, player ID, and video ID, you can get the video link by adding the parameters. You can right-click on the video and choose "Player Information" to display all information you need.

The Bottom Line

I have shared with you the easy solution to download Brightcove videos. Just copy and paste its URL into the video downloader EaseUS MobiMover. Be different from YouTube, it is not that easy to get the URL of a Brightcove video. But with the two methods I introduced above, it would not be a problem for you anymore. But keep in mind that the downloaded video is only for personal use if you are not the owner of the video or the video is not copyright-free.
