LinkedIn is a must for all professionals. It is generally used by professionals to search and apply for jobs. However, it can act as a generic social media platform, a place where you can upload videos, pictures, etc. But unfortunately, there is no place to download these videos in the app itself. That’s why we created this article. In this article, we are going to see how to download LinkedIn videos to a computer.
How do I download a video from LinkedIn?
LinkedIn does not have a dedicated button that you can use to download the video. You can’t download a video with just the click of a button, but there are workarounds you can use to do the same. You can either use a dedicated website, or opt for an app, or opt for an extension to do the same. Whichever method you choose, you will have its own advantages.
How to Download LinkedIn Videos to Computer
We are going to download LinkedIn videos to computers in three ways. These are.
- Using the website online
- Use free software
- Using the browser extension
Let’s talk about it in detail.
1]Use of the online website
Let’s start with one of the easiest ways, we’ll be using a website called Upload Linkedin Videos. This is a free website that allows users to simply paste the post url and then download the video. Follow the steps given to use the website.
- Open LinkedIn and go to the post office.
- Then click on the three horizontal dots and select the Copy link to post option.
- Go to dowloadlinkedinvideos.com, paste the URL and click the Go button.
- Then click To download.
- Sometimes the download will start right after clicking the button. If not, you will be redirected to the video, click the three vertical dots, and then click Download.
It’s an easy way to download any LinkedIn video. You will also need to Format, Size and Quality of the video you want to download. The best thing about this online service is that it not only works on your computer, be it Windows or MAC, but it will also work on your phone.
2]Use of free software
There is no dedicated software to download LinkedIn videos, but what you can do is use a screen to record video with audio. You can get free desktop recorder to record video. You need to make sure that you go to settings and then turn on sound recording as well.
In this guide, we’ll be using CamStudio to do the same. Open the app, click Options, uncheck Do not record sound. then open LinkedIn, navigate to the video, enter full screen mode, and click the Record button to start recording.
It’s not the only app, each app has its own way of doing things, but they generally work around the same lines. It’s not hard to figure out how they work, so download the one you like, visit its settings once, make the appropriate changes, and start recording. The recording will be saved on your computer for later use.
3]Using the browser extension
Finally, we have a browser extension for you. This is one of the best and probably the easiest ways to install. You just need to get an extension called LinkedIn Video Downloader for Chromium-based browsers (Chrome, Edge, Opera, etc.) from chrome.google.com/webstore. Once you add this extension you will have a little icon every time you want video, you just need to click on this icon and your video will be uploaded. Then go to the location where your downloaded content is stored and watch the video.
How to download LinkedIn videos for free?
All the methods mentioned are free. They won’t cost you anything. So you can use any of them if you want to download the video for free. Each method has its own advantages. If you don’t want to install anything, use the first method, you can just paste the url and download the video. But the problem with this method is that you have to visit the website every time you want to download the video.
If you go for the Screen Recorder app, you will need to give some of your disk space to the app itself, you also need to be on your guard, knowing when to start or stop recording. Finally, the extension is a great option for someone who still uses a browser, but a browser will not be enough for those who like to switch browsers.
So each has its own. Whichever method you choose, it will work for you.
