How to download Microsoft Teams video messages

With Microsoft Teams, it’s possible to record and send short video messages in chats, if you are not yet familiar with this feature you can have a look to the article I wrote about it here.

While this feature is awesome, unfortunately it does not provide an interface to download the video file locally to your computer. If you want to download video messages, look no further, in this article I’m explaining a workaround to do that.

Download Microsoft Teams video messages

  1. Start by opening Microsoft Teams in the browser
  2. Navigate to the chat where the video message is located
  3. Click Play to start reproducing the video you want to download
    Download Microsoft Teams video messages
  4. Press F12 to open the browser developer tools
  5. Click in the Network tab
  6. Locate the network event with the name 0 and click on it
  7. Under Headers copy the Request URL value
  8. Replace the /dash_video_original/videoSegment/0 by /video
    Download Microsoft Teams video messages
  9. Open the new URL you just modified in the browser to download the video

    Slightly different on mine but it worked nonetheless.
    For me, the network event 0’s values were something along the lines of{insert unique value here}/views/video_original/videoSegment/0

    I replaced the part after /views with /video and it worked.
