To get this to work, first, watch the video you want to download. Whatever segment you choose to watch will be downloaded. As a result, if you want the complete video, make sure you watch the entire video.
Next, open the File Manager on your phone and navigate to Android > data > com.Instagram.android > cache > videos. All of the videos you’ve watched will be listed here, with a clean extension. You can play them by tapping on them and selecting the video option.
Simply rename them and change the. clean extension to.mp4 if you want to convert them to an audio format. Please keep in mind that all of these videos are cached.
