Do you want to save Instagram streams on yours iPhone?

How to save other people's Instagram streams on PC
You want to save the Instagram streams of others directly to the PC? As you can well imagine, even in this case it is necessary to resort to third-party solutions, since the Web version of the social network (as well as its desktop application for Windows 10) does not allow this.
What am I referring to specifically? TO IG Stories for Instagram: a free add-on for Google Chrome that allows you to easily download the direct videos that have been made by the users you follow. The only "drawback" of IG Stories for Instagram concerns the fact that the audio and the video of the live are split: therefore it is necessary to resort to specific programs to rejoin the audio and the video so as to view the live broadcast without problems.
To use it, first start the Google Chrome browser, then connect to the Chrome Web Store page from which you can download the add-on and click on the buttons Add e Add extension to complete the installation procedure.
After completing the installation of IG Stories for Instagram, log into your Instagram account from Google Chrome and, to download the live videos on your PC, click on theIG Stories for Instagram extension icon located at the top right. In the box that opens, click on the tab Go to IG Stories, locate the direct you want to save (it is placed under the symbol Play) and click on the button Download located in the upper left corner of the screen to start the download.
In the box that appears on the screen, click on the button Video Track to download the live video. Then repeat the same steps regarding the audio download: click on the button Download located at the top left (after opening the live broadcast of your interest), click on the button Audio Track in the box that opened and that's it.
Now you just have to join the audio track to the video: if you don't know which program to use to synchronize the audio and video you just downloaded, take a look at the tutorial in which I talk a little more in depth about the programs to synchronize audio and videos because it will be of great help to you.How to save the Instagram streams of others
