How to download a video without a program?

Remember when was the last time you bought a CD with music or a movie? Long time? Of course, because what's the point if everything can be downloaded. All, but not all - you can’t download some content without knowledge of small tricks and, as a rule, this fact is a matter of downloading videos. This article will tell you how to download video without a program for free.


YouTube is the most popular video viewing portal. Find on it you can absolutely any video. Of course, all of them are available in online browsing mode, but sometimes you really want to get the video you like in your personal collection. Downloading videos from YouTube is easy. All that is needed is to slightly change the look of the link to the video of interest, just by adding two letters “s” between the combination of “www” and the word “youtube”.

For example:

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KagvExF-ijc turn into www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=KagvExF-ijc.
  • Now press "Enter" and activate the download.

In contact with

The second most popular place from which everyone is used to downloading videos today is the social network VKontakte or shortly “VK”, as it is now fashionable to call it, but here it is somewhat capricious with regard to downloading video content.Download video directly from this social network is impossible, but on the Internet you can find a lot of programs that solve this issue very easily. However, quite a large part of these utilities contains a bunch of viruses. Fortunately, there is a way to cope with the task of downloading without additional software. For this:

  1. Open the video that you want to download, press the key combination Ctrl + U or make the path "View" - "Show source code".
  2. Press the hot key Ctrl + F. A search bar appears, we write in it the inscription "vtag". In the event that the data indicated after the "vtag" contain a hyphen at the end, we carry out points 3 and 5 of this instruction, otherwise 4 and 5.
  3. After the "vtag" look for the parameter "host" and "vkid". From the data after these parameters and the value of "vtag" create a link to download the video. The link format is host / assets / videos / vtagvkid.vk.flv.
    • For example, if the host value is v777.online.ru, vtag is "1578rft55sc-", vkid is "12124542", our link will look like this - v777.online.ru / assets / videos / 1578rft55sc-12124542.vk.flv.
  4. We find a slightly higher parameter "vtag" format link - pt78541.vkontakte.ru/w9856712/video/1_7521c034.jpg, and the last characters "1_7521c034" are replaced by the value "vtag", and the resolution is changed to "flv".
  5. Copy the resulting link in the browser, click "Enter" and download the desired file.

Yes, this way requires some kind of mental effort, as opposed to using the finished program, but the viruses do not threaten you. But on the other hand, it’s much easier to download videos from YouTube.
