    Hi lina,
    Check the file extension in the file name (just in case).
    Or rename file to – videofile.mp4
    Or just add to the file name – “.mp4” (without the quotation marks and without the spaces).

    ok. I tried to use this on firefox with dailymotion. I ended up with the video playing in a new tab. Where on the computer is it supposed to have dl to? I can;t find anything anywhere that looks like the file I was trying to dl.

  9. 9 savevideome  January 6th, 2015, at 11:24 pm:

    To complete the process, you should press the bookmarklet (in your bookmarks bar) after you open a special link in a new browser tab.
    Please, share your page URL here or via feedback if download links are not displayed.

    Hi jake,
    Thank you for your message.
    Could you please share your page URL (here or via feedback) which has this issue?

    not able to download video from dailymotion.

  13. 13 savevideome  January 24th, 2015, at 6:10 pm:

    Hi nursab,
    Actually this video is from “” ( ).
    The “Hulu” site – is not supported.

  14. 14 Cocoa  February 12th, 2015, at 1:15 pm:


    I tried to download this:
    Firstly I couldn’t drag the savevideome to my bookmark bar. I had to add it as a normal bookmark.
    Secondly when in a tab with the new URL for my video ( and pressing the Savemevideo bookmark button I am simply redirected to the original page and nothing happens! This is very frustrating and your help would be much appreciated.

  15. 15 savevideome  February 12th, 2015, at 3:59 pm:

    Hi Cocoa,
    I checked it out. It works fine.
    It seems that you added the bookmark “as a simple URL”…
    You should add the “bookmarklet” with the “special code” instead of the “URL” bookmarks.
    See the screenshot –
    What browser do you use? Chrome? Firefox? Safari? Opera?

  16. 16 Cocoa  February 12th, 2015, at 7:41 pm:

    Many thanks for your swift response. I use Chrome.
    I pasted the code in the bookmark’s URL but It still doesn’t work: I see the following error message “Could not find any download links or site not supported :-(“.

  17. 17 Cocoa  February 12th, 2015, at 7:51 pm:

    Hi again,

    I tried dragging the words with the embedded code in the bookmark bar again and for some reason it worked! Although I would like to understand why, I am very pleased. Many thanks !

  18. 18 savevideome  February 12th, 2015, at 8:10 pm:

  27. 27 savevideome  September 22nd, 2015, at 1:34 pm:

    Hi yusuf,
    Your video is not available because this video has been removed (Content removed).

  28. 28 yusuf  September 26th, 2015, at 1:49 pm:

    I downloaded the other remove content before but this time it’s showing Could not find any downloadlinks or site not supported

  29. 29 savevideome  September 27th, 2015, at 6:46 pm:

    yusuf, Yes. Now, any video which has the status “Content deleted/removed” is not available to download because DM server removes completely such video now. Yes. It was possible before changes. But now, DM has improved its system.

  30. 30 yusuf  September 28th, 2015, at 12:17 pm:

    u have any suggestions how can I download it.

  31. 31 savevideome  September 28th, 2015, at 1:36 pm:

    yusuf, No. Unfortunately, you can not download the video, which has the status – “Content removed”.
    But you can try to find a similar video to download.

    I use Nokia Lumia and I don’t know why I cant enter the dailymotion url by copy and paste…..i tried it multiple of time

  36. 36 savevideome  December 23rd, 2015, at 11:17 pm:

    Hi marisaden,
    For mobile devices (including Nokia Lumia) – it works without a bookmarklet.
    Just paste page URL (with your favorite DM video) and tap “Download” button.
    You can explain your issue in detail via Feedback form.

  38. 38 savevideome  February 12th, 2016, at 10:29 pm:

    Hi monita,
    What browser do you use?
    Chrome? Firefox? Safari? Opera? IE?
    If you’re using “Chrome” browser, you can use the keyboard shortcuts:
    Ctrl+Shift+B (for Windows),
    Cmd+Shift+B (for Mac OS X)
    to toggle the bookmarks bar on.
    See – Chrome Help

  41. 41 savevideome  February 14th, 2016, at 7:37 pm:

    monita, Unfortunately, “UC-browser” is not supported by SAVEVIDEO.ME.
    You can use a native Web browser on your device or for example – “Chrome” or “Firefox”.

  44. 44 jack  March 19th, 2016, at 11:16 pm:

    I used to be able to use this site perfectly.
    But now i noticed that some dailymotion videos needed vpn to be able to view in HD.
    However, if i used the bookmarklet in vpn it returns to the original page.
    Anyway you can help me with it? Thanks.

  45. 45 savevideome  March 28th, 2016, at 4:29 pm:

    Hi jack,
    It seems that the issue with “VPN”…
    You can watch step-by-step video with the use of the “Bookmarklet” above.

  46. 46 Sarah  April 19th, 2016, at 10:21 pm:

    I tried to download this video from Dailymotion and it won’t work:

    The link looks right, what’s wrong?

  47. 47 savevideome  April 21st, 2016, at 9:20 pm:

    Hi Sarah,
    Actually this video is from “” ( ) but embedded in the DM website. So, this video is located at “”.
    The “Hulu” site – is not supported.

  48. 48 rjb  September 27th, 2016, at 11:29 pm:

    I submitted an issue but never received a response. I will try here.
    I have the bookmarklet in Safari 10 and also in Firefox 49.0.1 running macOS Sierra 10.12

    When downloading a video on Firefox, everything works fine. However, on Safari I can only get as far as right clicking on the quality of the video, selecting “Download Linked File As…”.
    Once I do that, the download immediately stops with: “Zero KB of ? – You do not have permission to access the…”

    I can not read the rest of the message, it can’t be found in Finder. Trying to find the file in Downloads results in:
    “Safari can’t show the file “****.mp4” in the Finder because the file has moved since you downloaded it.”

    Again, it works fine in Firefox but not in Safari. Please help.

  49. 49 savevideome  September 29th, 2016, at 2:43 pm:

    Hi rjb,
    Thank you for your message. Sorry for late reply.
    It seems that you use private mode (Private Browsing) in Safari browser.
    If so, try to turn off the private mode (Private Browsing) in Safari, and then try again.
    More information –

    Firefox browser has the same issue when using a private browser mode.

    You can also try to clear “Сache” and “Сookies” in Safari browser and then try again.

  50. 50 rjb  September 29th, 2016, at 4:05 pm:

    I am not using Private Browsing in Safari.
    I have turned off all browser extensions in Safari, restarted Safari and it still doesn’t work.
    The “Сache” and “Сookies” in Safari browser have been cleared, as well.
    So far, it only works in my Firefox browser, which by the way, has all extensions on, and still works fine.
