  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?


    1. 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

      1. 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?

      2. 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.

  3. Found an easier way to get the data. Right click on the video and select “Player Information”. Then copy and paste the Account ID number and the Video ID number from the list into the URL as above.

    1. Thanks for the valuable comment. I am interested in doing a stock market investment. Follow my tips and download Brightcove video free of charge.

    1. The above brightcove video link is “restricted from playing in your current geographic region”.
      You need to change your location by changing your ip.
      use some free proxy tool to change your location and try.

      1. Thanks! I’ll try it soon. But I tried with a VPN and could’nt see the video from the site. It told me that I’m not in the good region. Proxy tool and VPN are 2 different tools or they are working almost the same way ?
