Download Web Videos

  • Visit the site with the video in Chrome
  • Press F12 to bring up the Developer Tools pane and click Network
  • Click the “clear” button to set up your workspace. That's the International No button there in the Network pane
  • Press Play
  • Look in the Media list for something like “.mp4” or something that looks like the video you want. It'll likely have an HTTP Response in the 20x range.
  • Right click on the URL and select Copy as CURL (bash)
  • Open the WSL command prompt and paste in the command
  • Remove any -H “Range:” headers to ensure you get the full download
  • Add -o output_filename.mp4.
  • If it gives an error about security and certificates, you may need to add –insecure
