How to download Twitter videos on PC
If you want to download videos from Twitter using your PC. You can turn to the Windows, macOS, and Linux programs reported below. They are effortless to use, even by those who, a bit like you. Do not consider themselves a great expert in IT and new technologies.
The first tool to download videos from Twitter that I recommend you consider is JDownloader. In case you have never heard of it. It is a free program that allows you to “capture” multimedia files. Present in all web pages and download files from the main file hosting and streaming services. It’s free, open-source, and fully compatible with Windows, macOS, and Linux.
To download JDownloader on your computer, go to the program website, click on the Windows or Mac link (depending on the operating system you are using) and select the link at the top of the menu that opens.
When the download is complete, if you are using Windows, start the .exe file obtained, click on the Yes button in the window you see appear on the desktop and wait for all the components necessary for the software to function from the Internet. Then, click on the OK and Next buttons (four times in a row) and complete the setup by pressing the Skip and Finish buttons.
If you are using macOS, on the other hand, open the .dmg package obtained, start the executable inside it and, in the window that is shown to you, click on the OK and Next buttons (four consecutive times). Finally, click on the Finish button. When prompted, also type in the password you use to log into your Mac.
At this point, copy the URL of the Twitter video you intend to download to the clipboard on your computer. Once this is done, JDownloader should automatically detect the link, and you should see it appear in the Capture Links tab of the program.
If the link is not detected automatically, you can intervene “manually” by right-clicking with the mouse in any empty spot on the tab dedicated to capturing connections, selecting the Add new web links option from the menu that opens, pasting the link of your interest in the field next to the icon with the magnifying glass with the (+) in the new window displayed and pressing the Continue button.
Then proceed to start the movie’s download by pressing on the symbol (+) next to its title, then right-clicking on the link next to the icon with the reel and choosing the Start download option from the context menu. If in doing this, JDownloader asks you to install the free FFMPEG software component, you agree to this without any problems.
Once the download process is complete, you will find the video in your computer’s Downloads folder. Suppose you wish to change the location for the output. In that case, you can do so by accessing the JDownloader preferences via the top menu and clicking the Browse button in the Download folder section in the General area. If you think you need more details, you can check out my specific guide on using JDownloader.
