Hey guys! Probably you are new to my blog. This is also my website’s first blog post. I hope you all will like it. I would like to let you know, I’m a professional freelancer and virtual assistant of Growthworx Marketing Solutions, Melbourne, Australia & Proxy1Media, Florida, USA. Also, I have some other clients for whom I work. If you also need me, contact me and know what I can do for you.
So first is first! Let’s not waste time anymore! The problem I found while working, that sometimes we need to download videos from Google Drive that is shared by some of our friends/colleagues/someone anonymous. But it is true that sometimes we need to download that file. I have previously written this, how to download Google Drive View Only Videos in another blog of my client’s website. And I saw people find it very useful. So now, I am writing it once more with the latest updates again. I hope you will enjoy it.
Please do not use it for any misuse. People work so hard between a video and also Google works hard to protect what people want to protect. This guide is for people, like-
- who have a poor connection and can’t see videos properly
- who use only mobile data, so they can’t use too much data to see the same video again and again
- who want to save this video for emergency
- who want to do office work, his boss may share video with him/her without giving download permission, and now his/her boss is not available to give permission
So use this option in a proper way. Mozila Firefox is giving you this chance! It is my thought that as they are not attached with Google, so they allow people this service to attract people. It is like puncturing each others facilities. Ha ha ha! It is my thought , btw. Comment your below!!
How to download Google Drive View Only Videos?
As Google protects it’s users’ data, when a user doesn’t allow to download something shared through Google Drive, Google also doesn’t allow to download that. And so, you will not get any Google Chrome Extension that will help you to download View Only Google Drive Videos.
To download Google Drive View Only Videos, you will have to follow these steps below:
1. Install Mozila Firefox:
Firstly download Mozilla Firefox and install it on your computer. If you already a proud user of Mozilla Firefox, then you are already one step ahead.
2. Add an Add-on To Your Mozilla Firefox:
In this step, you have to add an Add-on to your Mozilla Firefox browser. The name of this fantastic Add-on is Video DownloadHelper. It works the same as its name. Your helping add-on like me. So add the Video DownloadHelper add-on.
Done with this step? OKAY GREAT! Let’s move forward!
3. Copy Video Link and Paste it:
Yea! You’re almost there. Obviously, as you are reading my article, you have a view-only video to download. So firstly, copy the video link and paste it to your Mozilla browser. And then click enter. But you will see there is no download button.
4. Click on the Add-On:
Okay, so we are close to download. Now you have to click on the Add-On you have added prior. And then a pop-up will open.
5. Click on The Video and Start Download!
This is the last step. When you click on the video, for the first time, I new Tab will open in your browser which will look like below.
Here you will have to tick mark the check box and then click “Use Browser”. And that’s all. Your video will be downloaded/ downloading.
Thanks a lot for reading! Comment if it helped you.
