Here is the list of Best Free Twitter Video Downloader Software for Windows. These Twitter Video Downloaders can download videos from Twitter, and from many other social media and video hosting websites. These software have their own unique ways to download videos. Some require video’s URL to download it, while others automatically detect videos in tweets and download them.

In this list, there are two kinds of video downloaders. First ones are Web Browser Extensions, while others are Windows software. To download videos by using extensions is much easier, as most of these extensions automatically detect videos. Extensions also provide many useful features, like: videos list, resolution settings, batch downloading, dedicated video players, etc. In video downloading software, you have to paste video links to download videos. Due to this, downloading multiple videos require much more effort, as you have to copy URL of every Twitter video. But video downloading software have many useful features, like: Converter to convert video format ( MP4, AVI, WMV ),  Dedicated video player, and Dedicated browser, etc.

Some of these Twitter video downloaders provide many useful features apart from downloading, such as:
