How to Download Videos to iPhone or iPad Directly from the Internet
You can download videos to iPhone or iPad directly from the Internet using various applications. For example, we took the popular Documents by Readdle utility, which is quite simple to work with.
Copy the link to the video (for example, from Vkontakte, YouTube, etc.), then launch the Documents by Readdle application downloaded on the iPhone or iPad earlier, click on the browser icon in the lower right corner and go to the 9xbuddy.app website.
Paste the video link into the search box and click the Download button.
Select the quality you want and click the Download Now button.
The downloaded video will appear in the Documents by Readdle app under the Downloads section of the Documents tab.
The downloaded video can be easily moved to the Photos app.
In addition, the application allows you to set a login password.
The application is described in more detail in this material.

How to record video on iPhone or iPad using iTunes
It should be noted right away that this method at first glance may not seem the easiest, but it has one significant advantage - its use does not violate any Apple rules. That is, downloading video content via iTunes will always be available, while the applications and services described below may be blocked at any time.
The main disadvantage of this method is the need to pre-download a video (movie, clip, etc.) to a computer.

Pre-converted video to MP4 format
So, first you need to add the desired video to iTunes (you can download the program here). It is worth considering that in order for iTunes to recognize the video, it needs to be converted to MP4 format.
To download videos in any format, you can use torrents or the Savefrom browser extension.
Again, iTunes does not support many popular formats - avi, mkv, etc., but this problem is fairly easy to fix.
For example, you can download one of the many specialized free utilities (Free MP4 Video Converter, Freemake Video Converter, etc.) and in a few clicks convert the video into an MP4 format that is easily digestible for iDevices.
To upload a finished video to iTunes, select "Add to Library …" in the File menu
or drag the required video into the Movies section window.
The video is added to the Home Videos tab in the Movies section of iTunes.
All that remains is to connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer, select it in iTunes, tick the desired content in the "Movies" section and click "Apply", and then "Sync".
When the process is complete, the video will be added to the Video application in the Home Video tab on the iOS device.

No conversion to MP4 (any video formats)
However, the process of converting video (especially if these are "large" films) can be quite tedious, in which case it is much easier to use third-party players from the App Store instead of the standard Video application, which by default have built-in codecs for many video file formats.
There are quite a lot of similar programs for iPhone and iPad, here are the three most popular - VLC for Mobile, OPlayer, OPlayer Lite, AVPlayer, PlayerXtreme.
It's easy and convenient to work with them - install any of the above applications on your iPhone or iPad, then connect the device to your computer and launch iTunes (download for Windows and Mac can be found here). The connected device should be detected. An icon will appear, as in the screenshot below. Click on it.
On the left side of iTunes, a menu of the connected device will open, select the "Shared Files" section in it (in older versions of iTunes, go to the Applications section).
Here we select the video player downloaded to the iOS device (in our case, VLC) and click on the "Add …" button.
In the window that opens, select the required video in any format, click "Add" again, wait for the video to be copied to the device, after which it remains to launch the application on the iPhone or iPad and enjoy watching.
To add a video, you can simply drag the files into the program window.
The progress of downloading videos to your device will be displayed at the top of iTunes.

How to download video to iPhone or iPad using iTools, Syncios, etc
If, for some reason, the method with iTunes still does not suit you, you can use its Chinese (therefore, unofficial) analogue of iTools (for Mac it is more convenient to use the free Syncios Manager for Mac application). The application has a fairly wide functionality, but in this case we are interested in downloading video content.
The process of adding a video is practically the same as using iTunes - video files can be added to the standard iOS application Video (only video in MP4 format) or any other formats, having previously installed a third-party video player (links are given above).
It is very easy to do this - just drag the necessary files into the program window on your computer. In order to add video content to the Video application, you need to use the Movies tab and, accordingly, the files in MP4 format.
To add videos of any format, go to the Apps tab, select a third-party player and click on the folder icon, then click the Import button and select the required video.
You can download iTools from the developers website (Windows version), (Mac version) (iTunes must be installed on your computer to use the program).

How to download video to iPhone or iPad over local network using Wi-Fi
Naturally, video from a computer can be downloaded to an iPhone or iPad via Wi-Fi without using a cable. The most convenient way to do this is to use media players such as: OPlayer Lite, AVPlayer, PlayerXtreme, etc.
Let's consider the process on the example of the latter.
First, you need to install the free PlayerXtreme app from the App Store and make sure your iPhone or iPad and your computer are on the same network. Next, launch the player, find the Wi-Fi section in the main menu and switch the status to "Enabled" mode.
Now we copy the IP address from the "Web" line and enter it into the address bar of the browser on the computer. On the page that appears, click the "Add files …" button and load the desired video,
after which we press the "Start" button - soon the selected content will be available in the application on the iPhone or iPad.
Other similar applications work in a similar way.
In this way, you can download videos of any format without prior conversion. The main disadvantage of using this method is the relatively low data transfer rate.

How to buy or rent a video on iTunes and watch it offline
The consumption of legal content is becoming an increasingly widespread phenomenon among domestic users. Many of them appreciated the advantages of buying movies, TV series and TV shows, compared to downloading them from pirated resources. One of the largest aggregators of media content is the iTunes Store - here you can buy almost any new items from the cinema, television and music industry.
At the same time, the film can be rented in an apple store, which allows significant savings. The process of buying or renting video content in iTunes is detailed in this material.
After purchasing a movie or clip, you can download it to your iPhone or iPad for offline viewing. It's very easy to do this - you need to log into your Apple ID account (from which the content was purchased) along the path Settings → App Store, iTunes Store,
and then go to the Video application (Movies section) and tap the cloud-shaped icon in the upper right corner, after which the video will be saved on the iOS device.
Which way to choose?
Based on the foregoing, we can conclude that, if desired, downloading any video from the network to an iPhone or iPad is quite simple. However, in most cases, the user will have to download the video to the computer first. In our opinion, the most convenient way is to download videos using iTunes to a third-party iOS video player with built-in codecs. Although this method requires a computer, it eliminates the need for preliminary conversion of video content.
