How to download video from Dailymotion (or others)?

How can I download video to computer/device?

1. Copy Page URL with a favourite video from your browser address bar;

2. Paste Page URL into the site form (SAVEVIDEO.ME) and press "Download";

3. Press on the found direct link ("Download video file" under the form) the right mouse button and select "Save link as..." from the context menu to save a video file to your device.
Use for example: VLC Player for video playback (.mp4, .webm or others);

4. Some of the video hosting sites do not provide you with the real name of the video file.
So, you will need to rename a file before or after saving (For example: video.mp4).

What video formats can I download?

Depending on the video hosting/site, videos can be downloaded in MP4, WebM, FLV format.
But not all video hostings/sites have the ability to download different video formats.

For example, you can download from Dailymotion in MP4 format.
For Dailymotion videos in high quality – it is possible to download MP4 video file in HD (720p) or Full HD (1080p) resolution/quality. It depends on the video.

It is possible to convert a saved video using any video converter software/app.

From what sites I can download videos?

Which video services are supported?

SAVEVIDEO.ME supports:

How to play FLV video?

Video was saved successfully, but how can I watch/play it 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 videos 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?

OGV file was saved successfully, and how can I watch it 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 videos 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)?

Download speed depends on the weight of the video file (Dailymotion or any other) you are saving, on the video duration and on the bandwidth of the internet connection (On all sides). In addition, third-party servers of video sites/hosting/platforms or social media may also limit video download speed depending on geolocation or other reasons.

What is a streaming video?

A streaming video is a video file located on a remote server that is streamed to a user's web browser by that server. Streaming video files are usually hidden behind the server's stream player or may be available in the video player.
In any case, a web browser simply downloads video file(s) to the temporary memory of a user's web browser (in the background) while a user watches any video in a video player on any website.

How to rename saved file to .mp4?

Just renaming a file extension does not mean "converting to the new video format". It only makes sense if a file is actually "MP4 video", but the file extension is lost for unknown reasons...
So if you want to change a file extension 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" – it is possible to rename the filename by removing the extra .part from the name in order to get the correct extension in the end of the filename ("videofile.mp4").

If there is no extension, 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?

This web tool is designed to help you to find direct link(s) to video file(s) of your favorite online video and save it to your device.

To download a video, paste URL address/link of your favorite video page into the site form and press the "Download" button.
The SAVEVIDEO.ME algorithm tries to find and detect direct link(s) to the video file(s).
As a result of successful processing, choose the video quality you want and click/press on the found "Download video file" link to save it on your device.

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

Is SAVEVIDEO.ME free to use?

Yes. It's absolutely free.

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 are some files saved without the ".mp4" extension?

I need to rename it manually.

Since a video file is hosted/located on a third-party server of video hosting/site/platform but not hosted on the SAVEVIDEO.ME server, the "file extension" (e.g. – .mp4) is defined by a third-party video site/hosting/platform server (Where a video is hosted).

So SAVEVIDEO.ME just tries to find and detect direct link available to downloading, but does not handle the process of saving a video file from a third-party server.

I can not download a video file. Downloading is broken :-(

When I try to download a file, downloading stops and I have to download again. Why is this happening?

It depends not on SAVEVIDEO.ME.

A video file is hosted on a third-party server of video hosting/site/platform. Therefore you're downloading a video file "not from SAVEVIDEO.ME".

Either a third-party server of a video site/hosting (Where a video is hosted) is temporarily overloaded or a third-party server limiting the download for various reasons (Limiting by IP address or by country).
Try to download a video again later...

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

A video file is not saved but plays automatically in a web browser :-(

When I press download a video file, playback starts automatically instead. How to save video without auto playback?

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

On mobile device, "tap and hold the video" until download/save options pops up. Or use the context menu and interface of mobile browser.

The downloaded video file "doesn't work" :-(

I have downloaded a video through this site, but it can not be played. Why?

There are several possible reasons why the downloaded video file is not working:

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 desktop system.

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

3. The extension of a saved file not ".mp4". Try to rename a file to "videofile.mp4".

How can I convert FLV video to MP4, MPG, WMV and other formats?

There are many different programs (FLV Converters) that can convert FLV video to all popular formats (MP4, MPG, AVI, WMV, MOV, PSP, 3GP etc.). You can also use several different converters to get the video format that you want.

How can I convert OGV video to other format?

There are many good OVG Converters.
You can choose here (depending on OS). Or you can find any another OGV Converter that can convert OGV video to all popular formats (MP4, MPG, AVI, WMV, MOV, PSP, 3GP and more). You can also use several different converters to get the video format that you want.

I press the "Download" button, but file download does not start :-(

The "Download" button is used to start detecting of direct links. After SAVEVIDEO.ME will have a successful search results – press a found direct link ("Download video file" under the form), and it will start the file downloading.
