How to Download a Video from a News Article

If you see a video in a news article that you would like to have for your own personal use, you can follow the steps below to download it. You will need to have a video downloader program installed on your computer. Many people use the program “Free Video Downloader” which you can download for free at

Step 1: Find the video you want to download

When you find a video on a news website that you want to download, look for a “Download” button below or to the right of the video. If you don’t see a download button, try playing the video. After the video starts playing, look for an option to “Download” or to “Save.”

If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, you can also use the Safari browser’s built-in “Reader” feature to strip out all of the ads and other junk on a page and just show you the article (and any videos). To do this, tap the icon that looks like two overlapping rectangles in the top-right corner of the Safari window, then scroll down to the “Available for Download” heading and tap “Video.”

Step 2: Copy the video URL

In order to download a video from a news article, you will need to first copy the URL of the video you want to download. To do this, simply click on the video itself within the article and then copy the URL that appears in your browser’s address bar.

Step 3: Paste the video URL into a video downloader

Now that you have the video URL, you can paste it into a video downloader website or app to download the video. Video downloaders are websites or apps that allow you to save videos from the internet to your computer or phone.

There are many video downloaders available, but we recommend using Elmedia Player. Elmedia Player is a free app that can be downloaded on Mac and iPhone devices. To use Elmedia Player, simply copy and paste the URL of the video into the app, and the video will begin downloading automatically.

For more instructions on how to use Elmedia Player, check out this step-by-step guide.

If you’re not using a Mac or iPhone, you can still use Elmedia Player by downloading the app on your Windows computer.

Step 4: Choose the video quality and format

The final step is to choose the quality and format of the video you want to download. The quality options will vary depending on the video, but they usually include 1080p, 720p, 480p, and 360p. For most videos, we recommend choosing 1080p for the best quality.

Format options usually include MP4, AVI, and MOV. MP4 is the most popular format for videos, so we recommend choosing that one.

Once you’ve selected the quality and format you want, click the “Download” button and your video will start downloading!

Step 5: Download the video

The final step is to download the video. Visit the website and enter the URL of the page where the video is located. Press “download.”

You will be given a list of options for file format and quality. Choose the file format you want (most likely MP4) and then select your desired quality. If you want to download the video in HD, select “1080p.”

Click “download.” Your video will begin downloading automatically. Once it has finished, you can find it in your computer’s “downloads” folder.


In conclusion, downloading a video from a news article can be a bit tricky. However, with the right tools and a little patience, it is definitely possible. We hope that this guide has been helpful and that you are now able to enjoy your downloaded videos!
