How to Download a Wistia Video File

How to download a Wistia video, explained

In this short video tutorial, I will show you how to download a Wistia video.

I have tried this on a number of videos, both ON Wistia and off, including on some Click Funnel sites. I'm not telling you this so that you can do anything nefarious.

The reason I sought to learn how to download a Wistia video is because I got an email from a person I bought an infoproduct from – it was a webinar replay that he was taking down in the next 24 hours and I knew I would not have time to watch it.

So downloading the video became a prime objective.

Here's how I did it. Now, this example is using a video right off Wistia. It is NOT the video I wanted to download. Rest assured though, that I got the video I was looking for. Now, I can watch it at my leisure.

Step 1: Right-click Wistia video and copy the link.

Step 2: Paste that code into a notepad (text) editor like so:

<p><a href=”https://wistia.com/series/brandwagon?wchannelid=u2joyabsw9&wvideoid=mgj008fjp0&wvideo=mgj008fjp0“><img src=”https://embedwistia-a.akamaihd.net/deliveries/f4f8d848fe977f7d1cabe8c56dea445e.jpg?image_play_button_size=2x&image_crop_resized=960×540&image_play_button=1&image_play_button_color=26d98ae0″ width=”400″ height=”225” style=”width: 400px; height: 225px;”></a></p><p><a href=”https://wistia.com/series/brandwagon?wchannelid=u2joyabsw9&wvideoid=mgj008fjp0&wvideo=mgj008fjp0″>Brandwagon – A Wistia Original Series</a></p>

Step 3: Find the entry for “wvideo”. In this case, it's mgj008fjp0

Step 4: Paste that into this URL:

https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/WVIDEO?videoFoam=true

So here, it would be: https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/mgj008fjp0?videoFoam=true

Step 5: Type/paste this into a browser tab URL address:

view-source:https://fast.wistia.net/embed/iframe/mgj008fjp0?videoFoam=true

Step 6: Find “.bin” Copy/paste that URL into a new browser tab. Change the .bin to .mp4. Press Enter.

Step 7: Download it by right-clicking and “Save Video as…”

That's it! Enjoy.
