How to Download All Instagram Photos and Videos in Your Hard Disk

Instagram is one of the most popular photo sharing websites, where you can upload square image (Generally) and small video clips. Instagram is growing rapidly since 2010. In this little span of time, they have successfully engrossed 200 million active users, according to the last report.

instagram

 

If you often use and love Instagram, you might have already uploaded tons of pictures and video clips. On the other hand, if your followings upload eye-catching pictures frequently and you want to download them all at once, here is a trick. Alternatively, let’s assume that your favorite following has uploaded such a great video clip that you want to share with your friends, who are not Instagram user.

At such moments, obviously, you can save all those pictures one by one but you should know that it will take more time than software. However, there are tons of free software to download all Instagram photos and videos in your hard disk but today; I am going to introduce only two of them, which are much easy to use and not so time-consuming to set up before starting download. You can use both of them on your Windows PC and once of them is available for Android as well.

Download all Instagram photos and videos

InstagramSaver

This is such a great software, which comes with only three or four options those will let you do whatever you want. It has no such feature or option that may take time to be understood by you. The interface looks pretty awesome and it is covered by minimal options. So, just download InstagramSaver and install it in your Windows PC. After installing, you can find a screen something like the following picture:

Download All Instagram Photos and Videos in Your Hard Disk

Just enter your Username (if you want to download your photos and videos). You can also enter any valid username to download anybody’s images as well as videos. You can also change the download path according to your wish.

On the other hand, this software don’t download videos by default. You will have to change a setting to make it download. To enable the video download feature, just head over to the Settings and tick on Download videos too.

That is all! Now this software will download images and videos from any Instagram account.

Downlaod Videos using InstagramSaver

If you would like to use this same software on Android, download either InstagramSaver or InstagramSaver Pro app for Android.

Free Instagram Downloader

It is yet another great free Windows software to download all photos from Instagram. Although, you cannot download videos from Instagram using this software but it is intense in terms of image downloader. Alike InstagramSaver, you can download photos of any Instagram user using only the valid username.

Free Instagram Downloader

The best part is, if you do not want to download ten or fifteen photos among five hundred photos or so, you can do so just by un-ticking.  This is an additional feature, which does not come with InstagramSaver.

On the other hand, Free Instagram Downloader is very easy to use. Just download it and install in your PC. After opening it, enter the valid username after clicking on Input User Name from the top left area.

After few seconds, it will show you all the uploaded images of that user. You can either download all images by clicking on Download All button. This is as simple as said.

Bottom Line

Although, you can download all images and videos of any Instagram user, this is always not suggested or recommended to use them in any offensive activity. You can use this beautiful software to collect your favorite photos and that’s all!

How to Watch YouTube Video from Desktop

YouTube, the second largest search engine, is incessantly getting 72 hours of video uploaded in each minute. You can find almost all types of videos i.e. entertainment, how to’s, product reviews and anything else. YouTube has gained such a great position because of its quality and simplicity. This is easy to go to YouTube, find a video and watch it right away.

YouTube Logo

But sometime, YouTube shows tons of advertisement and other stuffs. That is why some people do not want to watch videos on YouTube. If you are one of them, here is a guide to watch YouTube video from desktop.

In this article, I am going to mention three different methods to watch YouTube video right from your desktop. You can use one Windows/Mac or Linux (Mainly Ubuntu) to use these following methods.

How to watch YouTube video from desktop?

VLC Media Player

Youtube video in VLC

VLC media player is a popular media player, which is used in different purposes like media file conversion etc. You can use this media player to watch YouTube video from desktop too. The video quality will not be much good even if you have a good data connection. But, still you can use VLC because this is free and available for Mac, Windows as well as Ubuntu.

To YouTube video using VLC media player,

Step 1: Copy the desired YouTube video link and paste it in Notepad or anywhere you want.

Step 2: Just open it and navigate to Media and Stream respectively.

Step 3: Go to Network tab.

Step 4: Paste the YouTube video link in the empty box and then click the Stream button.

Step 5: Click on Next button continuously until you get the following window.

VLC Stream Output Settings

Step 6: Click in the empty box to select Stream all elementary streams and click the Stream button.

Now, your video will be started running.

Important Note: VLC requires a very good data connection to stream YouTube video.

So, if you do not have quite good data connection, try following ways.

Minitube

MiniTube

Minitube is one of the best tools to watch YouTube video from desktop. Even, in my opinion, Minitube is better than VLC media player to watch YouTube video. Minitube is premium software. Yet you can try the trial version of Minitube, which comes with limited features.

Just install Minitube and start using it. To play videos using Minitube, follow the subsequent steps:

Step 1: Choose either particular Keyword or Channel from the start screen and search for desired keyword/channel.

Step 2: Choose any video from left sidebar and watch it in your right pane.

This is as simple as said. You can also subscribe to any YouTube channel by navigating to Video and Subscribe to [channel name].

VinnPlayer

VinnPlayer

It is yet great portable software that is available for Mac and Windows. The user interface is pretty good and it is covered by fewer options. To play a YouTube video using VinnPlayer, just download and open it. After that, search for any video using keyword.

Either you can double-click on any video from search result or you can click on any video and Play button.

That’s all! Now your video will be started playing.

Final Word

According to me, Minitube is the best software to watch YouTube video from desktop. You can try more other software to do the same thing.

Do you want to watch YouTube videos like this? Which is working best for you?

How to sell online

Buy Or Sell Online

Selling and buying online has become a trend now. At present people are juggling into these kinds of online markets where you can have access to thousands of used and second hand products. We, as humans, usually get bored of items we use daily and need a change after a particular period, or sometimes we buy some items that we end up not using. For this reason, it is a good idea to sell what you don’t use anymore.

You will have free space to put the items you buy and save money for your next shopping spree. You can sell anything online; it doesn’t have to be clothing or gadgets. If you are moving to another city, you can the furniture you won’t need, or if you have postcards, stamps or coins, there are many collectors. I’m sure if you try and post ads free here, you will end up finding a buyer for almost anything. Of course, you need to research and find the right price for the items you are offering.

Selling products was never this easy. There is a big variety of websites and store where you can easily list your products and buyers can purchase them easily. Before throwing anything away, check some of these sites, you will be surprised.

You might be wondering that buying from an unauthorized source can result to a fraud. Well, there are websites who provide online payment method for used products and buyers buy from such sources without checking further. Usually, there is no problem with this, but if you are not sure, our recommendation is that you can have a conversation with the seller via telephone or email so you can fix up a meeting point to make the deal. Sometimes, you live far away from the seller so you can’t meet. In those cases, try to find their address, some comments from other buyers and follow your instinct.

The Disappearance of Books- Welcome to the Digital Age!

Books used to be treasured items, with entire rooms designated only for books and other reading materials. Today, however, books are starting to turn into an endangered species. With the rise of digital literature, and the ease and power of that technology, the book is becoming harder and harder to find.

Fall from Grace of the Library

The library used to be a place where the most intelligent people in the world would gather in their quest for knowledge – either to complete papers and projects for academia or perhaps to discuss issues with other academics. Whatever the reason, today, the digital literature has rendered these buildings as virtually obsolete. There are still operational libraries, but other than offering a pleasant respite from the elements for homeless people, their purpose has largely been replaced by a small digital device with a 6 to 9 inch screen.

The value of books and the knowledge that they contain can’t be debated because they are the great equalizer. It doesn’t matter what your upbringing was; if you can read and have access to books, you can develop your intellect to the equal of anyone else in the world. That hasn’t changed, but now you simply have the books wirelessly delivered to your device, no matter where you are, Kindle USA or Nook UK, all people have quick access to all of the knowledge of history. Digital literature is the cause, and the end of the relevance of the library is the effect.

Digital Books are Much Easier to Store

One of the many bright sides of digital literature is that it is much easier to store. In the past, you had to find a shelf that could hold all of the books that a person could read. When you finished you added the book to your library where it would sit, collecting dust and taking up space until either you moved or died or both.

Now these spaces used for book receptacles can be revamped to provide a more functional use for the room that used to be the library. It can be turned into a family activity area, or perhaps a man cave. Either way, families are going to be searching for new ways to use that space that used to be wasted on holding old books. Now our books are stored on electronic clouds out in the universe, just waiting for us to call them back to relevance through our electronic devices.

There Is Something About a Book

Even though there are many great things about digital literature, there are still certain aspects of a book that can’t be replaced. The smell of a new book as you open it for the first time; the feel of the hard binder in your hands as you leaf through the pages and glean all of the knowledge that you can from the book’s contents. There is a finality in closing the book when you are finally finished with it that provides you with a distinct feeling of accomplishment. This feeling is just not equaled by powering down your reading device.

There will always be a place for books, but that place is getting smaller and smaller by the year. The cost of printing and production of a book can be simply eliminated by electronic versions with identical reading content.

Watching The Game Was Never So Interactive !

Listening to radioLong ago, people would spend Saturday afternoons on the terraces with a tinny little radio clamped to one sweaty ear, as they tried to keep up with results from across the country. Then somebody invented a way to carry the internet around with you.

Tablets and smartphones have revolutionized the way we enjoy sport. Screen size is a major consideration when buying a device, as is the size of the device itself. A smartphone may be more suited to live events, while tablets might be better off at home (or in a reasonably civilized bar).

Apple iOS fans prize its elegance and ease of use. The iPad 4 is a fantastic tablet, though the iPad mini might be preferable for the sports fan who wants a compromise between a smartphone and a full-size tablet.

Google’s Android boasts flexibility and a wider range of devices (and prices). The Nexus 7 tablet can be had for well under £200 – shop around.

While Windows and BlackBerry offer well-received machines, both, especially BlackBerry, lack the huge range of apps for iOS and Android. Nokia’s Lumia 720 is, however, a great Windows phone at under £250. Android fans will want to consider Sony’s powerful Xperia Z1. It’s tough enough to survive a day at the races, and the camera is superb.

Apps-wise, try talkSPORT’s free Premier League Live, which offers full commentary of every game. Handy if you’re at, say, St James’ Park and you need to know what’s happening at White Hart Lane.

With a bit of careful hashtag management, Twitter is a good way to keep up with sporting news, as well as being an outlet for your joy/frustration. Various Twitter apps are available for all platforms.

Live Sport On TV by Scothosts Group (iOS) will plan your viewing for (they claim) 35 different sports. Who knew there were 35 sports?

A decent betting app is a must for many fans. With offerings from all the big names like William Hill, Winner Sports, Bet365, Betfair and Coral, the options are almost endless. The apps vary quite a bit in look and feel, ease of navigation and bonuses available, so a regularly updated comparison site such as freebets.org is an extremely useful tool. It’ll display a clear, easy-to-use list of betting sites with bonuses offered, user ratings for each site, and “bet now” links for quick access. Live or in-play betting is hugely popular. A great place to start if you fancy a piece of the action is bet 365 at bookmakers.org.uk.

Finally, watch out for meat pie juice. Dried gravy is a nightmare to get off a screen without scratching it.

OLX available for your smartphones and tablets

1

There is no doubt that OLX is one of the most useful sites for selling and buying products and services. However, this company is not satisfied only with leading this market and being situated in the top 20 most visited sites in India. Since this company started in March 2006, it hasn´t stopped working in making people´s life easier. Nowadays, this service is translated in 40 languages and used in over 105 countries.  A very good example is the new mobile application which was launched recently. If buying or selling something is very simple through a PC–you just have to send a photograph of the product you would like to sell, write an ad, fill your personal details and log with your email- now with a Smartphone or tablet is much more, if possible.

On the one hand, OLX app download is not difficult at all, it is available for all operating systems and very easy navigable. The only thing you have to do is to look for it in Google Play Store or App Store (If you are an `Apple lover´, it is important to know that there is an OLX app for Iphone, Ipad touch and Ipad, so you can have this application in all your devices.)

On the other hand, to post an announcement is very quick and you stay connected people with a finger touch. One of the advantages of this application is that it lets you search local ads and also so it shows you the announcements which are nearer your position.  It is possible because the app has a real map integrated. What is more, this app has a very good user interface.

Finally, another positive point of OLX app is that you can share any ad that you think it could be interesting for your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter or Whatsapp.
