Happy Tuesday, ladies and gents! One of the most commonly asked questions we get is how to download your Magisto movies so we thought we’d put together a little guide with all the information you need!
Downloading finished movies is a premium feature. If you have paid to upgrade to Magisto Plus or Magisto Pro you can create and download unlimited movies for the duration of your upgrade. If you are a Plus user, downloads will be created in SD (standard definition) and if you are a Pro member you can create downloads in HD, provided they were created on the web using HD source files. HD downloads for Pro users will be available on mobile in the future and we’ll make an announcement as soon as this feature is available.
How to Download a Movie
If you are a premium user, you can download a movie by going to the page of the movie you’d like to download and clicking the download icon. On mobile, it’s the little downwards-pointing arrow. On the web, it’s simply a button that says “Download.”
If you are a basic user, clicking the download button will prompt you to either upgrade your account for unlimited downloads or to purchase a single movie download.
Earn Free Downloads
Note: if you are not a premium user, you can earn free downloads when you get friends to sign up for Magisto. To invite friends, go into Settings in the app or on the web and select “Get Free Downloads.” You can invite friends via email, SMS or Facebook. When a friend uses your invite link to create an account, you and your friend will each earn 1 free download. You can earn up to 20 downloads in this fashion.
Sharing Downloaded Movies
Once a movie is downloaded you can view it on your device and share the file with friends. It is important to note, however, that the music in our library is licensed for use on Magisto.com and we cannot guarantee licensing on third-party sites like Facebook. For this reason, when sharing your movies on the web, we recommend sharing links rather than uploading the video files themselves.
If you have any questions about downloading movies, please reach out to our support team and we’ll be happy to assist!
