Method 1: Download videos from Dailymotion App for offline viewing

Like other video platforms, the official mobile app of Dailymotion offers a download feature to allow users to watch videos offline. It does not require any additional tools, but the download functionality is also very limited. First, not all videos are available for download. Also, the videos are just cached in the app, not saved to your gallery. And the best quality for downloading is limited to 720p, not 1080p or higher.

How to download videos from dailymotion app on Android/iOS:

  1. Download the Dailymotion app from your phone’s app store.
  2. Sign in or register an account.
  3. Search for the video you want to download.
  4. Tap the Download icon below the video player to start the download.

To watch the downloaded videos, go to the Library tab -> Downloads section, where you can find and play all the downloaded videos. Swipe left to delete a video.

Is there a Dailymotion downloader app for the iPhone?

Although there are many options for Android users to download online videos, there is no identical app for iPhone users. Online video downloader apps are either banned or “fixed” by the App Store for violating Apple’s terms of service. So the best option for downloading Dailymotion videos to iPhone or iPad is to use a download site, or you can go back to the desktop app and transfer the downloaded video files to your phone.

Method 3: Download Dailymotion Videos Using Online Downloaders
