How to Download Videos from any Streaming Sites Using Google Chrome – If you watch a lot of foreign movies and TV shows, you’ve probably realized that downloading video files is much superior to streaming movies straight from browsers or applications.
- To begin with, streaming movies uses a lot more data than downloading them to your hard drive and viewing them later.
- Second, network problems may degrade the stream’s quality.
- When the network is poor, you’ll have to endure lengthy buffering before being able to view it. People often quit up because they are fed up with waiting for the movie to begin playing.
- Finally, with a downloaded video, you may watch your favorite movie with friends and family over and over again. Of course, sharing movies in this manner is more convenient.
On the other hand, with streaming, you’d have to spend data every time you wanted to view a movie. And that’s assuming there’s a good network signal. This piece of advice isn’t well known. However, it is very effective. You may download any video from any streaming website using this method. The technique, however, is not limited to video. Audio files may also be downloaded. However, I’m sure there are easier methods to obtain audio files. So let’s just continue to watching videos.
How to download video from any streaming site Using Chrome Browser
For this to function, it’s ideal if you have the following.
- On your laptop/computer, the most recent version of Google Chrome is installed.
- Any decent download manager would suffice. Internet Download Manager (IDM) was used to create this tutorial.
To check if your Chrome browser is up to date,
- Click the choices button in the upper right-hand corner of the menu bar in Chrome on your desktop.
- Three horizontal lines placed vertically or three dots arranged vertically are the options.
- Hover your cursor over ‘Help’ at the bottom of the drop-down menu. There would be a new menu. To learn more about Google Chrome, go to the ‘About Google Chrome’ section. It’ll bring up a new tab.
- You should see something like the picture below if your browser is up to date.
- If it isn’t up to date, your browser will prompt you to do so. To upgrade your Chrome to the most recent version, just click on the link. Depending on your network, it may take a few minutes.
To have the changes take effect, restart your Google Chrome browser.
- Return to the options button in the upper right-hand corner of the menu bar in your upgraded Google Chrome browser. Click it and scroll down, then hover your cursor over ‘More tools’; scroll down and click on ‘Developer Tools’ in the drop-down menu that appears.
- The Developers’ Tools window appears. The menu bar is located at the very top of the window. Look for the Network Tab and click it (it’s not hard to locate, so you won’t have to do much searching).
- You may do this step before or after you access the Developer’s tools window. However, it is all up to you. Now go to the video streaming site and find all of your favorite films. To begin playing the video, you wish to download, look for it and click play or open it. Alternatively, if you know the URL of the video you want to watch, type it into the address box and press Enter to visit the website. My streaming video source for this tutorial is wootly.ch. The TV show “Doubt” is the video to be downloaded.
- When you press the play button, or the video begins to play, things begin to happen in the Developers tools window. Except for one piece of information, everything you see is irrelevant to this tutorial. So please don’t be scared off by them.
- Before stopping the video, you may let it play for a few seconds. Switch your focus to the Developers Tools window now. Several blue horizontal bands of various widths would be seen. The longest blue horizontal bar is your goal. It’s simple to notice.
- Move the cursor over the longest bar using the mouse or trackpad once you’ve found it. Ignore the box that appears on the screen. To do so, just right-click the bar.
- Hover your cursor over ‘Copy,’ then choose ‘Copy link address ‘from the drop-down menu.
- You’ve completed the Chrome browser. The next step is to download the video file using your download manager. So go ahead and launch your download manager. The download manager used in this tutorial is Internet Download Manager. In IDM’s upper left corner, click the ‘Add URL’ icon.
- After that, paste the URL address you copied from Chrome. IDM may have already grabbed the URL in certain cases. After the file size displays, click ‘OK’ and then ‘Start Download ‘in the following window. This may take a few to several seconds, depending on your network.
