  1. Hi,
    I am trying to download a Brightcove video from a website, but every time it comes without the audio. I don’t have audio in my videos. Would have some suggestion about what should I do?


    • Hi buddy!
      download videos in .mp4 format. Every video has an audio file. If you not hearing audio means, Download video in some other format like .avi .mkv

      • Hi,
        Thank you so much for your reply. Is there a way to see if my video has an audio file in it? Because I tried to convert the .mp4 format to .avi and even like this I got no audio.
        And I can’t find an extension that downloads a video in another format than .mp4.
        Do you know any extension that I can use on the browser to download it in another format?

      • Hi,
        Thank you for your reply. I use an extension on Chrome and this extension just download videos .mp4. But even when I convert the file from .mp4 to .avi I still have no sound.
        Do you have any tip? Or a good extension I good use?
        Is there a way to see it the audio file is inside this video?

        Thank you.

  12. Hello. I tried the method above. Sadly, it didn’t work. I even tried using “,” an online tool, but it seems that it doesn’t support downloading Brightcove videos. Is there any other way/tool that you recommend? I really appreciate any help you can provide.

  13. It works well for me. I started from your indications, but I could find only data-video-id, not data-account. I extracted the data-account info from the url – I saw that in your “select data-account” image the data-account information is also in the background-image url, so I extracted it from the the URL. Later, I discovered that in the Console section, the video is called with a GET method that includes the parameters account= and video=. In my case, I can extract them easier from there.

    Thank you Ilayaraja for sharing this Brightcove video download method because I tried before many video download software or plugins, but none of them worked! In my case the video is embedded in a private course page and this was the only method that worked.


    Video is DRM protected content. There is no geo-location tagging. Tube-offline will not work for such videos. Any other option to download?
