How to download and save your Vines

Last chance to save those Vines

Twitter announced last year that it would be dropping its six-second video looping service, Vine, in January - and today is said dark day. You’ve got a few more hours left until your short-form masterpieces are gone from the app forever, but there is a way to save them.

You’ve got two main options. You can either download directly through the Vine app, or through the Vine website – which you’ll find just here. Vine will then email you an archive of your videos.

Download from the Vine app

This is probably the easiest way of keeping a hold of your videos. Go to your profile, and then tap the ‘Save videos’ button. They’ll be downloaded to your phone or tablet as .mp4 files.

Download from the Vine website

Head to the Vine website on your laptop or desktop, log in, and click the blue ‘Download your Vines’ button in the top right hand corner. Then click the green ‘Request your archive’ button – which will load when clicked, and turn into a ‘Download archive’ button.

A .zip file will then be sent to your email address with all your videos contained inside.

So, what’s actually happening to Vine?

Vine will continue its existence in a slightly different form, called Vine Camera. You’ll still be able to record and create six-second videos, but there won’t be a dedicated platform for you to share them on. Alternatively, you’ll be able to show them off on Twitter, or simply save them to your device’s camera roll.

The Vine and Twitter team have thanked its users in a blog post on the closure of the app: “Thank you for the culture that you have helped shape, and for the content you’ll continue to make everywhere. You make the world a funnier, weirder, richer, more beautiful place.”
