By Cecilia Hwung | Last Update:

More than a social platform, Pinterest is regarded as a visual discovery engine today. You discover recipes, find style inspiration, explore home ideas on Pinterest to create a life you love. With the pin option and uploading feature, you can save all kinds of videos to your collection.

Basically, the Pinterest videos fall into these types:

  • Videos uploaded by the user: they are uploaded directly to the server of Pinterest by users;
  • Videos pinned from other sites: they are pinned by the user from other sites. And you shall see a source link to the original site such as YouTube, TikTok, etc.

But the thing is you can't directly download videos from Pinterest since Pinterest does not provide a download button.

The following article will show you four practical ways on how to download videos from Pinterest of all kinds, including standalone applications, online tools, and chrome extension. Check them now.

1. How to Download Video from Pinterest on PC/Mac

Remember we talk about the types of Pinterest videos? For videos uploaded by users, they are easy to download with all methods in this article. However, for videos pinned from other sites, using online tools and chrome extensions can only download them just as they are on Pinterest. The video quality may be degraded, or transferred from landscape to portrait. You may have fewer options to download video at its original 4K/1080p resolution.

In this case, you surely need a dedicated downloader like VideoProc, which lets you download videos from Pinterest of all kinds with high quality.
