How to download video from Instagram?

Now it's quite easy. Open My Video Converter and locate the white search box on top of the page. I do have desktop screenshots, since it's easier to write these tutorials on desktop, plus it's annoying to make screenshots on mobile devices. All the context stuff (menus) disappear before screenshot is taken.. So... Here's how I did this on desktop, and you can do this on your smartphone..

1. Paste Instagram post link into Myvid search box

On desktop right-click in the searchbox, select Paste. Mobile - tap in the white box and hold until menu shows up, select Paste option. This is what it looks like on my screen:

2. Hit GO and get download options, that easy

Now we simply press or click or tap the GO button, and moments later screen refreshes with download options for this video. Select the one you like and go ahead, download. Usually there will only be 2 options, since Instagram only keeps 1 video format, and we offer mp3 converter for Instagram, so there's the 2nd download option.
