How to download ANY Dailymotion video for free

Hi there.  In this tutorial I will be teaching you how you can download any Dailymotion video for free quickly & easily.  The video from Dailymotion can be downloaded and converted to any popular video format including MP4, FLV, MKV, WMV etc. etc. which can then be viewed any time when you are offline.

For this you will need:

  1. A Dailymotion video URL
  2. An internet connection
  3. A Windows based PC/Laptop or a Mac
  4. The free "Dailymotion Video Downloader" software.  Click here if you are using a PC/Laptop version or here if you use a Mac.

OK, let's get started.

Step 1:  Open the Dailymotion page that contains the video that you want to download and copy the page URL.  It should look something like this ► https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x730x24

Step 2:  Download, install & run the "Dailymotion Video Downloader" software.  Windows users click here.  Mac users click here.

Step 3:  Paste the link that you copied from Dailymotion into the box, on the software interface, boxed in red.  See the image below.



Step 4:  Choose what video format the downloaded Dailymotion video will be saved as.  Do this by checking the "Automatically Convert to" box and choosing an appropriate video format.  See the image below.  The default is MP4 which is probably the most common video format in the world.  I would recommend that you use MP4.



Step 5:  Now, click the "Download" button.  See the image below.



Step 6:  When the video has finished being downloaded and converted, click the yellow folder icon to view the video file.  See the image below.


And that's it done!  That is how quick, easy and painless it is to download any Dailymotion video and convert it to any popular video format.  The software that I used can actually download video from nearly all video sharing/streaming sites such as YouTube, Vimeo & Facebook.  Also, it can download audio from sites like Deezer and Spotify.
