It’s not possible to download Twitter videos natively. We can only stream the videos. Right-clicking on a Twitter video gives ‘Save as’ option but at the time of saving, it shows that whole webpage (HTML) will be saved. To save Twitter videos, we have to use third-party tools. If you are a Firefox user and a regular user of Twitter who loves to stream Twitter videos and wants to save them to watch later, this Twitter Video Downloader add-on is the perfect solution.
You can see in the image below that a “Download From Twitter Video” option is visible.
Basically after installing this add-on, when you can right-click on the time and date of a tweet that contains a video, this option is visible.
Using that option won’t directly download the video. Click on that option and it will prepare a download link (same as visible in the image below). You can click the download icon and a new tab will be in front of you. Now the Twitter video that you have prepared for downloading is ready.
You can also read:
You can right-click on the video and use Save as option. This time the save as window will show that video will be saved as MP4 file.
That’s it! You have got the video. Save the video and enjoy watching it whenever you want or share it with your friends. Add-ons like Twitter Video Downloader are a boon for all those Twitter users who spend hours on watching videos on Twitter and want to have them on their PCs. Only two to three clicks are all you need to grab any Twitter video and save it to PC.
