Are you looking for a way to save an embedded video from your iPhone? If so, you've come to the right place! There are a few different ways to save an embedded video from your iPhone, and we're here to show you how.

The first step is to make sure the video you want to save is embedded in a website. To do this, simply open up Safari on your iPhone and navigate to the website where the video is located. Once there, tap on the video so that it begins playing. If it plays correctly, then it's embedded in the website and ready for saving.

The next step is to save the video itself. To do this, simply tap on the video again while it's playing and select “Save Video” from the options that appear. This will save a copy of the embedded video directly onto your device.

Another way to save an embedded video from your iPhone is by using third-party such as Documents or Video Downloader Pro. With these apps, simply copy and paste the web address of where the embedded video is located into their respective search bars and hit “Go.” The app will then search for any videos available at this URL and give you an option of which ones you would like to download – simply select which one(s) you want to keep and they will be saved directly onto your device.

Finally, if all else fails, you can always take a screenshot of the embedded video before saving it directly onto your device. To take a screenshot on an iPhone 8 or newer, press and hold down both the power button (on the right side) and the volume up button (on the left side) at once until you hear a shutter sound – this indicates that a screenshot has been taken successfully! Once taken, all screenshots are automatically saved into your Photos app with other photos/videos already stored there – just find it in Your Albums > Screenshots folder!

And there you have it! Those are three simple steps on how to save an embedded video from your iPhone! Whether you choose to use Safari directly or third-party apps such as Documents or Video Downloader Pro, now you can easily store any videos onto your device for viewing later on!
