Downloading HTML5 Videos via Context Menu


My suggestion is that you add an option to the context menu (right click) for downloading videos and other media, in the same way you can download photos from the context menu. I have attached pictures below showing the saving function in two other browsers, which is not present in Brave. So far, I have tested this with GIFs, MP4s & WEBMs from Reddit & Gfycat

The other browsers also have controls for the videos. (loop, pause, mute etc.)

I’m running Windows 10 Autumn Update

  • Find a GIF, WEBM, MP4 & open it in Brave and at least one other browser.
  • Right click on the video in each browser and note the context menu options.

I had to squash all three pictures into one using Paint because apparently I’m not allowed to upload more than one image to this topic…
