When you begin a search on Google, there are billions of results pages that are presented to you. What’s great about this search engine is that there are different tabs that you can explore like images, videos, news, shopping, flights, and more to enhance your search. Google’s video tab has become a popular results page for many because it instantly grabs viewers’ attention. There’s so much value in videos especially when it comes to learning new information or entertaining. Whether you are searching for a “How-To” video, the best twitch streamers, or movie trailers, it would be great to save and download videos on Google for yourself.
In this tutorial, I’ll be using Kapwing’s free video downloader to grab a video from Google. Follow these steps below!
- Search for a Video on Google
- Copy the Video Link from Google and Paste It Into Kapwing
- Export, Download and Save the Video
Step 1: Search for a Video on Google
Head over to https://www.google.com/, type a keyword into the search bar and wait for the results to appear. Once you see the results page, select the videos tab on the top. Scroll down until you find a video that you like.
Step 2: Copy the Video Link from Google and Paste It Into Kapwing
Once you have found a video that you would like to download, right-click on the title and select copy link address.
Next, head over to the Kapwing Studio. From here you will right-click the URL box and paste the video link. Wait a few seconds while Kapwing fetches the video, however, this can take a bit longer if you choose a longer video. Once the video is loaded into the timeline, you can press the play button on the left side of the timeline to watch the video clip.
Kapwing has other tools that you can use to make any edits to the video. Try using subtitles located on the left-hand side toolbar to create auto-generated captions. You can even trim or split the video into different parts by dragging the left or right ends of the video.
Step 3: Export, Download and Save the Video
After reviewing the video or making additional edits, you are ready to export. In the top-right corner, click the green button that says Export Video. You’ll then be taken to the next page where the video will process for a moment. This can take a few seconds to a few minutes depending on the length and size of your video. When the video has finished processing, review it again to make sure everything looks right. Then, click Download, and your video will be saved to your device. You can also send the video to others by copying the shareable link or selecting the Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram icons to share the video on those platforms directly.
