Solution 2. Extract Videos from Websites with Screen Recorder

Although VideoHunter works powerfully and professionally to help extract videos from popular websites such as YouTube, Facebook, VLIVE, Twitter, Reddit, and so forth, it has restrictions in downloading video/audio files from some niche platforms. To cover this shortcoming, we offer an alternative method here to let you extract videos from the websites which VideoHunter doesn't support to directly download the videos from them.

The best way to extract videos from the websites which are not supported by all kinds of video downloaders is to record the content with a reliable screen recorder. There are many options on the screen recorder market, so I picked one reliable (according to many users) for introducing, which is RecordAnyVid.


RecordAnyVid's Main Features:

* A very simple interface for everyone to operate easily;
* Three recording modes offered - Video Recorder, Audio Recorder, Screenshot;
* Mainstream formats such as WMV, MP4, MOV, F4V provided to save recordings;
* Webcam recording available;
* Mouse effect, video editing, clipping and trimming (paid version) available;
* Original quality recording.

Likewise, here we would also come to the operation process of using RecordAnyVid to extract video from websites. Have a look!

STEP 1. After installing RecordAnyVid on your device, launch the program and enter the interface of its "Video Recorder".
