Part 1. Download Embedded Video with EaseUS Video Downloader 

Most videos embedded on a page are from other video-streaming sites, like YouTube and Dailymotion. These sites provide embed codes that can be used directly on a page. In such a case, downloading an embedded video from a page is equal to downloading a video from video-streaming sites. Thus this question becomes easy. You need a video downloader to help you download the embedded video from the page. 

EaseUS Video Downloader is a helpful video grabber on Windows. You can use its video downloading feature to save embedded videos from websites. You can use either the page URL or the video URL to download an embedded video to your PC. EaseUS Video Downloader can save videos from 1,000+ sites, supporting almost all video sharing and streaming sites you've heard of. Let's check the step-by-step guide below for details.

Part 3. Save Embedded Videos with Browser Developer Tools (Self-hosted)

Apart from uploading a video to a video-sharing site like YouTube and adding the embed code directly in the article to embed a video, admins can also self-host a video and embed it into the website. In this case, most third-party video downloaders are incapable of saving embedded videos. You can take advantage of the browser developer tools to rip the embedded video from the site. Let's see how to do this.

Step 1. Open the page with the embedded video you want to save in the Chrome browser.

Step 2. Click the three-dot icon > "More tools" > "Developer tools" to open the code page. You can also press "F12" to open it fast. 

Step 3. Stay on the "Element" tab and inspect a selected element on the page. Click the arrow icon (it will turn into blue) and move your mouse to the embedded video on the page and click. Then go through the code in the developer tools to look for the URL of the video. The URL usually ends with .MP4. 

Step 4. Click to open the URL. If you can't, copy and paste it into a new tab to load the video. Put your mouse within the video page, right-click to select "Save video as..." to save the video to your PC.
