How to download someone else’s Instagram LIVE story?

Posted on Posted in Online Marketing Tools

I did it, but with a hack, on the computer.

Here are the steps:

  • First, you have to access the 24-hour live video (story).
  • I installed an extension (plugin) for Chrome that allows you not only to see stories but saved live 24h live streams. To access the stream, first search the person’s name, and then you will see his or her stories, but on the left, you will see the name, so double-click the name, and the recorded live video stream will play.
    PLUGIN: is called Chrome IG Story

  • I captured screen with screenCast Matic free software (or use any other one you like).
    So, I recorded the video on my computer screen, but it comes with low-quality audio because the audio is picked up from the mic at the time of recording the video ( Instagram 24 hour live story (video stream).
  • Once you have your video, then we move on into recording the audio directly from the computer by using this amazing trick I found on youtube

  • Lastly, bring video into iMovie (for Mac) or Window Movie Maker, and split the video’s original audio, then delete that track. Then import the track that was recorded on the computer with good quality. I use Final Cut Pro, but you can use iMovie on Mac, or Video Movie Maker on Windows.
  • All you need is to synchronize the audio with the video, and it is not as hard as it sounds. I did it in about 3 min.
  • Save and enjoy! :-)

HERE IS MY FINAL VIDEO: This Instagram live story video was recorded by a client with a phone that had lower low audio quality, so don’t think that your final video will sound like this,. Your final video will sound exactly as it was in the original video source.
