Many social media influencers engage in giveaways, Q&A sessions, and personal stories that give their followers a peek into who they are behind the scenes. If you’re lucky enough to be able to attend such an event in person, it’s likely you’ll come away with a plethora of new photos and videos that you can share on your own social media accounts. But what if you live miles away from your favorite influencer? Simply download an app to capture the photos and footage on your device.

YouTube is great. It allows you to find almost any video you want, but sometimes, it’s just not enough. For example, say someone famous on YouTube has a new interview with another influencer. You want to watch it, but you don’t have time right then and there. What do you do? Download it of course. These days there are different ways to download videos from YouTube or even other video-sharing sites. There are extensions, apps, software, and just plain old HTML5. Each method is different so let’s explain them all quickly.

Use Software like Vdownloader

Vdownloader is the software you can use to help make getting more out of video sites like YouTube. It will let you extract the audio file from any video, making it easier to create ringtones, MP3s, and other audio files of the music in your favorite videos. It will also let you extract videos from YouTube, making it easier to download and save your favorite videos for watching offline. In addition to making downloading easier, Vdownloader can help you make sharing a YouTube video with your audience more direct by making it possible for you to copy a link directly from a YouTube video page, making it one click easier to share the video with your audience and making it easier for them to find the downloads of your favorite influencers.


This is the easiest way to download videos without any hiccup or hoo-ha. The only downside is that it’s limited to computers running Google Chrome or Opera browsers. But don’t worry, you can still watch it. Although this may require a good internet connection to download it in its highest quality.

The video will start downloading automatically once you click the button, so be patient when waiting for the download to finish. If you want to watch it directly on your browser without having to download it, just change the filetype on the address bar from “All files” to “WebM video” or “MP4 video”.

Use Extensions

There are lots of free extensions available that allow you to download videos from social media platforms. We’ll be using the “Downloadhelper” extension for the example in this article. Once you have installed the extension, click on it to open up its interface.

To download a video, all you have to do is simply find the video that you want to download on Twitter or Facebook and then click on “Download Button” on top of it. Once clicked, choose where you want to save the video. The extension will save the video instantly to your computer.

Once you have downloaded the video, you can share it on any social media platform of your choice. Some Other Extensions are Download Video Button  (for Facebook) – Savevid (for Youtube) – Vidto MP4  (for Instagram) – TubeNinja  (for Youtube)

Use your Phone’s Built-in Downloader

You can also download videos using the download manager on your phone. For instance, iPhones come with a built-in video downloading app which you can use to download and share videos instantly. Once installed, locate the video that you want to download and click on the download icon with a cloud and arrow. The video will be saved to your phone’s camera roll. You can then share it with friends or upload it to any social media platform that you prefer.

Use Apps

Influencers have a huge impact on social media, whether they are singers promoting an upcoming song, athletes promoting their latest game or even brands such as Nike trying to advertise their latest shoes. However, there are many ways that people can go about finding their favorite influencer, whether they are on YouTube or Instagram.

Today, it is more common for influencers to have an app available for download in order to provide exclusive behind the scenes content of what goes on during their lives. For example, Dwayne Johnson has a mobile game called “Rock The Troops” which is a free-to-play, live music rhythm game for iOS and Android devices.

Influencers are becoming more popular in today’s society due to their large impact on social media websites such as Instagram and YouTube. By leveraging these social media platforms, you download and share videos of your favorite influencers with the means above.
