Three proven and easy ways for you to download Instagram videos on PC.
Unlike Twitter or Facebook, Instagram is mainly a photo and video-sharing social networking service. Being rich in visual-based content, Instagram is a good place for users, especially the young, to share their stories. Thus, it's not surprising that you may find a video you like so much that you want to download the video from Instagram to your computer or mobile device.
Then is it possible to download a video from Instagram? The answer is absolutely "Yes" as long as you find the proper ways. Follow to see how can you download videos from Instagram to your computer with ease.

Method 2. How to Save Instagram Videos on Computer Online
Apart from desktop tools, some online video downloaders also work well to save Instagram videos to computer. An online video downloader enables you to download an Instagram video on PC without software installation. However, given that not all online video downloaders work equally effective and most of them are full of ads, you should be careful while choosing a tool to apply.
