Can I download private videos using Squidlr?

No, Squidlr operates strictly in an anonymized manner and does not utilize any user accounts. The Squidlr bot can only access content available to the public on the internet and does not use any account for the supported platforms. Videos limited to specific audiences or marked as private cannot be downloaded as they are not accessible to the bot.

Why am I unable to download a selected video?

Several reasons could lead to this issue. The most common one is that the URL you provided does not exist, or the corresponding post has been deleted. Additionally, some videos may not be accessible anonymously. It's also worth noting that videos containing mature or explicit content, as indicated by the social media platform's policies, cannot be downloaded.

What should I do if I encounter a technical issue or have a suggestion for improvement?

Squidlr is always evolving to provide the best service. If you encounter limitations or have suggestions, feel free to reach out. While I prioritize user experience and reliability, certain constraints, such as platform policies or content accessibility, may limit the types of videos that can be downloaded.

Can Squidlr be used on mobile devices?

Yes, Squidlr is designed to be accessible on any device with a browser and internet connection, including mobile devices.

Are there any limitations on the number or size of videos I can download?

Feel free to use Squidlr as much as you'd like, keeping in mind not to automate excessive requests within a short timeframe.

Is Squidlr affiliated with or endorsed by any social media platform?

No, Squidlr is not affiliated with or endorsed by any social media platform.
