Twitter is killing off Vine, the social media platform famous for popularizing looping, 6-second video clips. The mobile app is being discontinued in the coming months, which likely means that it won’t be available to download on Google Play or the App Store. The app, website and the Vines themselves will remain intact and available for viewing for the time being.

While that means that you’ll be able to revisit your favorite Vine uploads in the near future, it’s not likely to last forever. So if you want to save any Vine videos from their eventual fate, you’ll need to download them directly to your computer or smartphone. Luckily, to do that, you have a few different options.

Computer Method

Luckily, the easiest way to download your favorite Vine videos is also free.

1. Open a web browser.

2. Go to, and find the Vine you want to download.

3. Simply right-click the Vine, and choose Save Video As.

4. Name it whatever you’d like, and save it as an MP4 file for best playback.

If you’re on a Mac, you’ll need to download Google Chrome for this to work — currently, Safari won’t let you right-click and download video files. If you’re on a PC, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer will also let you download Vine videos.

Smartphone Method

You also have a few options available if you want to download Vine videos directly to your phone.

If you have an iPhone, you can also download a Vine video directly to your device using the Video Downloader for Vine iOS app — if you’re willing to shell out 99 cents, of course. After signing in with your Vine account, the app will let you save videos directly to your Camera Roll. These include your Vines, videos you find on the platform, or even videos sent in private messages.

If you’re on an Android, there are similar apps available, including Saver for Vine and vDownloadr.
