I’m sure that you’ve seen the ads. You click on them, buy something, and then the video starts playing. Sometimes, the adverts play for a couple of seconds and then automatically progress to the next scene. Sometimes, they don’t play at all and you just have to watch the video until the end.
The video below from Clickfunnels breaks down the steps required to download the entire video so that you can watch it whenever you want.
STEP 1: Select the country
The first step is to determine the country of origin for the video. This will determine how much of it you’re able to download. If the ad is flagged as Safe for Work, then you’re good to go. Otherwise, you’ll have to make sure that you either avoid displaying or removing nudity or mature content. If that’s not possible, then you might want to check with your IT department to see if there’s an IP rating for the ad.
STEP 2: Identify the publisher and name of the video
The next step is to identify the publisher and the name of the video. This will enable you to download the video in its entirety. You can either input the publisher’s website or go through the publisher’s app to find the information. Sometimes, videos are published by multiple companies, which is why you might see multiple clicks below.
STEP 3: Locate the video’s hosting platform
The last step is to locate the video’s hosting platform. This is the site that the publisher chose to upload the video to. You have to input the URL of the platform into the search bar above or you can click the button that says “Go to website” to be automatically taken to the platform.
Once you’ve located it, copy and paste the URL into the address bar of your browser. This will open up a page with information about the video, including the ability to download it in full. You can also click the button that says “Watch Now” to start the download.
That’s it! You can now watch the video in its entirety on any device. If you have any problems, then you can contact the support team by clicking the button below.
What if I want to listen to the audio instead?
If you only want to listen to the audio instead of watching the video, then all you have to do is click the speaker icon in the top right corner of the video.
This will open up a pop-up menu where you can choose to listen to the audio or watch the video. If you choose to listen to the video, then it will start playing as soon as you click on the play button. If you choose to listen to the audio, then you’ll have to click the play button to start playing the audio.
From there, it’s the same process as watching the video. You can either search for the country, identify the publisher, and locate the video’s hosting platform or you can click the button that says “Go to website” to be automatically taken to the video’s page.
