How to download a video from VK (VKontakte)

Videos on the Internet are copyrighted. Sometimes owners won’t mind downloading published content, but in most cases, authors won’t be happy with it. In fact, we don’t recommend doing this.

You can upload your own videos without infringement, as well as videos covered by the free Creative Commons CC0 (Public Domain) and CC BY (Attribution) licenses.

  3. Now, paste the copied link into the text box.
  4. Select the video quality and click on the download button.
