Instagram the app by Facebook, is the best social media app. It has users over billions worldwide. It allows you to share videos, images and text messages. You can share this content by posting on your profile or stories.

Stories are available for 24 hours while Posts on profile stay as long as you want them. Now we always come across some interesting and exciting videos in our feed. But there is no inbuilt option for downloading them. That's where we need third-party applications. Also, you can use some websites to download videos from Instagram. Overall, you don't need to worry at all, till there are some great platforms like InstaDownloaderPro specially made for such purposes.

In this blog, we will not review it, but we will be looking into some other less popular methods by which you can download videos from Instagram.ย Also, keep in mind these are third-party sources, so be careful. Always prefer apps or websites that don't need your login. So let's start.

It doesn't only help you download videos from Instagram but also supports other apps. (tik tok, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Ted, Soundcloud, and much more). That's all in only one app.

Above mentioned methods are the best. You don't need to be pro to use them Though both the methods have their pros and cons. For example, Videoder can help you download videos from Private Accounts. On the other hand, Downloadgram allows you to download videos only from public accounts.

Videoder requires you to log in Instagram, which is not that trustworthy. However, there's never been any lousy case in my experience. Also, Videoder is not available for IOS devices.ย
