Download Wistia Embedded Video
Wistia is another video hosting service like Vimeo. They have quite advanced techniques to stop any downloading of video content but there is a way, there’s always a way.
If you stumble across a website and you find embedded video you’d like, take a looksy at the website source code. Do a ‘find’ and look for ‘wvideo’, it’ll look something like this:
<p><a href="https://avispl.brand.live/c/Humanity-Rising-Notre-Dame-Reborn?wvideo=3jjlher9gi"><img src="https://embed-fastly.wistia.com/deliveries/551808a9b25e32bcc70f0802adf99e80a97e9ef9.jpg?image_play_button_size=2x&image_crop_resized=960x540&image_play_button=1&image_play_button_color=28374ee0" width="400" height="225" style="width: 400px; height: 225px;"></a></p><p><a href="https://avispl.brand.live/c/Humanity-Rising-Notre-Dame-Reborn?wvideo=3jjlher9gi">Friends of Notre Dame_NDP_FINALRevised GFX_111920 (1).mp4</a></p>
Note the “https://avispl.brand.live/c/Humanity-Rising-Notre-Dame-Reborn?wvideo=3jjlher9gi” but more importantly that last bit, ‘3jjlher9gi’. That’s the ID of the video file.
With a little bit of youtube-dl magic (grab if you don’t have it), do this:
All you’re doing is adding the file ID after that iframe/ and voila, beautiful video from Wistia becomes yours.
PS: Don’t download copyright content. This is just a demonstration on how you can download from Wistia, great if you forget your account password and need to get your content back 😉
