Cobalt is a free social media video downloader for Bilibili, VK, Vimeo, and Reddit like websites. It supports some other websites that I will mention later. It is fast and can instantly download a video from any of the supported websites. Not only that but it also supports downloading only as well. There are no ads or any paywall to come in your way. All it asks for link of the post or video and then it will save it.
There are many video downloaders for Instagram or Reddit like websites. But they are either slow or can’t help you save audio from the video. But Cobalt here doesn’t have those flaws. It is very simple and straightforward. However, for now it only works with videos. It can download videos as they are or it can either convert them to audio. There is no sign up or daily limit. You can use it on your mobile devices as well.

You can go ahead and try Cobal on its main website here. It has a very simple interface where you will see only a box where you have to paste a link to a video on one of the supported websites. There are two modes to use it. The very first one is auto mode. In this mode, it will try to look videos on the link you have pasted.
If you just want to download the audio from the video then you can click on auto. It will change the download option to the audio. Now, it will first fetch the video, will convert it to M4A audio format, and will finally serve that to your side.
After selecting the mode, just press enter and it will save then audio or video file on your PC. This is as simple as that. Apart from the above-mentioned websites, it supports the following websites as well to download videos and audio.
- VK Clips
- VK Video
Do note that for now, it doesn’t support Bilibili.tv domain. You can only download audio and video from Bilibili.com domain only. Maybe they will add the support for other websites in the later updates. There is a changelog available which you can keep checking to find out what’s new in each update.
If you are looking for a decent and fast social media video downloader then Cobal is the tool you need. You can bookmark it and use it anytime you want. It works perfectly on mobile as well. What I liked best about it its clean interface. No ads and absence of irrelevant text makes it more usable. It does what it says and I hope they add more websites in the coming days for downloading videos.
