Downloading videos from Instagram and Stories is not a native function of the social network. However, there are a number of apps for Android and iOS that allow you to download this content. Then just repost or watch whenever you want.
But, be aware that downloading and reproducing content protected by copyright without the author's authorization is considered a crime by our country's legislation.
Story Saver lets you download photos and videos from your feed, Stories, and even IGTV. To use it, you must access your Instagram account through the app.
Soon after, the profiles of the people you follow on the social network are displayed. There is the possibility to download all at once or each publication individually. In the second case, you can choose whether to include the source @ and whether to download, share or repost the content directly from the app.
