Since 2013, Instagram allows you to upload not only photos but also videos, which has since taken root and has become an integral type of content on this social network. However, like many social networks and video hosting, Instagram does not have built-in tools for downloading videos. Therefore, for this, you need to use third-party services and programs. Tell you about the best.
If you do not want to overload your computer or smartphone with applications and enter the system from someone else's laptop, the easiest way is to use the instaloader bootloader for Android.
The principle of operation is as simple as possible. You find the video or photo you need, then copy the link and paste it into the window on the page "instaloader.xyz". Next, you click on the download button and get your finished content.
And the instaloader application is much universal and convenient, you can repost, download stories, photos, videos. In the application, you must copy the link and paste and open the instaloader app, then the link will automatically be inserted by itself and you should just click on the download button. You can also download to your phone through the "share" button in the menu in the Instagram application, clicking on the share you will see the "instaloader" icon.

WinX YouTube Downloader
This application is quite universal because it allows you to download videos from numerous services, including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and others. True, it only works under Windows, including the latest, 10th version.
The interface of WinX YouTube Downloader is quite clear. To download video from Instagram you need to find this video through your browser on your computer, copy the link and paste it into the application. You can copy several links at a time and download everything at once.
WinX YouTube Downloader performs its functions stably, although it also does not do without bugs at all. Video previews usually don’t work, nor is their length determined.
One of the best tools for downloading photos and videos — 4K Stogram. This is a small program that you can install on a computer with Windows, macOS, or Ubuntu and start using it instantly. In the search bar, you simply enter the hashtag, username, or geolocation, and the application immediately connects and downloads everything it can find into a special folder. Files in it will already have names by date. With this automatic download, you need to be careful, because millions of photos and videos have already been posted with some tags. But at any time, you can pause the download.
You can subscribe to multiple accounts simultaneously, and the application will automatically download all new posts. True, for this you will have to switch to the paid version.
This service is almost like the previous one. Just one single page on which there is a form for inserting a link and a button “Download”. Curiously, after clicking on it, a button appears below “Download video”, which is also worth clicking on, and only after that, the video will begin downloading.
On the one hand, the service does not have any settings, does not offer you to choose the quality or name of the video, and calls it just a bunch of numbers, while 4K Stogram calls the files the date (apparently, the post date), and WinX YouTube Downloader writes at least name of the account that posted the video.
On the other hand, working directly from the browser means that the service can be used from any device, whether it is running Windows, macOS, one of the Linux distributions or mobile OS.
Free Instagram Download
Free Instagram Download is an application that you need to download and install on your computer/laptop. And it is compatible only with Windows: starting with Windows XP and ending with «Ten». But its advantage is that it has a number of settings and allows, for example, to upload several videos in a row to download, and the application will carefully turn off the computer at the end of the download.
But the basic principle of action is the same — insert a link. Unlike the mentioned web services, Free Instagram Download allows you to download photos as well, but each one also has to embed a link, which makes this application less convenient than 4K Stogram.
