3. When your link (link to a file) will be found - press the link "Download video file" (under the form) the right mouse button and select in the menu "Save link as..."

4. Some of the video hosting services do not provide you with the real name of the video file.

Use for example: VLC Player for video playback (.mp4 and others).

How to play FLV video?
Video was saved successfully, how it to play now?

Not any video player can play a video file, saved in FLV-format. You will need a special player. For this:

- Choose a suitable FLV video player, allowing to play video in FLV-format.

For example, you can download and install the free VLC Media Player or the free GOM Player or you can find any other video player.

How to play OGV video?
Video was saved in OGV-format successfully, and how it to play now?

Not any video player can play a video file, saved in OGV-format (OGG).
You will need a special player. For this:

- Choose an OGV video player, allowing to play video in OGV-format (depending on OS).

Or you can download and install, for example the free VLC Media Player or the free SMPlayer. Or you can download and install the new version of web browser Mozilla Firefox with possibility of viewing OGV-file directly in a browser window. Or you can find any other video player.

How long does it take to download Dailymotion video (or others)?

It depends on the length of the video (Dailymotion or any other) you are saving and depends on your internet connection.

What is a streaming video?

A streaming video is a video file located on a remote server, and streamed to you by that server. Streaming videos can not be normally downloaded as files because they are hidden behind the server's stream player.

How to rename saved file to .mp4?

To change to .mp4, find your downloaded file and rename the file extension from .htm (or .part) to .mp4 extension in the filename (if the file has been saved for example as "videofile.htm" or "videofile.part").

If the file has been saved for example as "videofile.mp4.htm" - you can try to rename the filename, having removed unnecessary .part from the name to get the correct extension in the end of the filename ("videofile.mp4").

If there is no extension, then just add .mp4 to the end of a filename (for example like this: "videofile.mp4")..

Probably you will need to enable display of the File Extension if the full name of a file isn't visible to you:
- For Windows OS in any folder go to "View" or "Tools" (In older versions of Windows, you first need to press Alt key to access the top menu, if it's hidden) > Next select "Options" (or "Folder options") > "View" tab then scroll down to "Hide extensions for known file types" and uncheck that box.

Click "ok" to save changes. Now you can see the file extension which you can rename if necessary.

How this site works and what is it?

The task of this site is to help to find a Direct Link to a video for saving it to your device.

You insert the address of page with a favorite videoclip, and SAVEVIDEO.ME tries to find and detect a Direct Link to a video file for downloading to your device.

Please, do not forget that the videoclip has a lawful legal owner.

Is SAVEVIDEO.ME free to use?

Yes. It's absolutely free.

Why could not find any download links?
I can watch my video easily on a video page, but your website says that "Could not find any download links or site not supported". Why?

The Search Algorithm of Direct Links is different for each video site. Therefore, sometimes a direct link can not be found on some video sites for example if a video site is not yet supported by SAVEVIDEO.ME, or for other unknown reasons.

Check that a Page URL with your video is copied correctly.

More details.

Why the extension (.mp4) of downloaded file - is not installed at once?
Why sometimes video files are saved without ".mp4" extension? I need to rename it manually.

SAVEVIDEO.ME tries to find and detect a Direct Link available to downloading. But a video file is not hosted on our server. In reality, a video file is hosted on a third-party server of video hosting/site. And so a third-party server of a video hosting (where a videoclip is hosted) defines the File Extension (e.g. - .mp4) independently.

I can not download a video file. Downloading is boken :-(
When I try to download a file, downloading is boken and I have to download again. Why?

It depends not on SAVEVIDEO.ME.

A video file is hosted on a third-party server of video hosting/site. Therefore you are downloading a video file not from us.

It seems like a server of video hosting/site (where a videoclip is hosted) is overloaded at the moment. Try to download a video again later...

Also, if your internet connection is very slow, stability of downloading isn't guaranteed.

A video file isn't saved and starts playback automatically in a web browser :-(
When I download a videoclip, playback starts automatically. How to save videoclip without auto playback?

Try to save a video via the context menu or right mouse button by selecting "Save link as...".

More about name of video file.

The downloaded video file "doesn't work" :-(
I have downloaded a file through this site, but it can not be played. Why?

If a downloaded videoclip doesn't work, there are several possible reasons:

1. It seems that is not yet installed a suitable video codec on your device. You can try to download and install K-Lite Codec Pack for your system.

2. Perhaps, your video player does not support the format of a downloaded video file. Try to install other video player.

3. For a saved file the extension not ".mp4". Try to rename a file to "videofile.mp4".
