Since there is no "Download" option on Rumble, many people don't seem to know how to retrieve their original uploaded video files. Honestly, this feature exists but not so conspicuous that a large number of video creators may haven't noticed it.
Step 1. Open https://rumble.com/ and log in to your account.
Step 2. Click on your "account icon" in the top-right corner and select "My Content" option.
Step 3. Click on the "three dots menu" in the lower-right corner of each video.
Step 4. Click on "File" option to retrieve and download video from Rumble.
To download Rumble videos from someone else's channel, you have to draw upon some third-party applications. No worries, I've got you covered with the simplest three methods below.

Video DownloadHelper (also known as VDH) is a well-received browser downloader extension developed for downloading any video from the Internet without difficulty. Despite a fact it requires a premium for some additional features like video conversion, DASH/HLS video download, etc., it's totally free to download Rumble videos as expected.
Step 1. Install VDH to Firefox, Chrome or Edge from https://www.downloadhelper.net/install.
Step 2. Video DownloadHelper extension will turn to a "colored three balls" icon when you play a Rumble video.
Step 3. Click on the icon and choose one option in the drop-down list. Generally, it will download Rumble video in the default resolution. To download video in higher quality, click on the "Gear" icon and select a higher video resolution.
Step 4. You'll be asked to select one download method on a new tab. Press "Use browser" to download Rumble videos.
CocoCut is a less well-known web video downloader extension that does not yield to Video DownloadHelper by any point. It works very well for downloading online videos in most streaming protocols and is totally eligible for Rumble video download.
Step 1. Install CocoCut to Chrome, Firefox, Edge from https://cococut.net/.
Step 2. Play a Rumble video. Once the CocoCut extension turns green, it means the current stream is detected and ready to download. Similar to Video DownloadHelper, you have to switch to a higher video resolution in advance to detect HD Rumble video stream.
Step 3. Click on the extension and press the corresponding "download icon" to download from Rumble.
Step 4. CocoCut will download Rumble video in a new tab. DO NOT CLOSE the CocoCut download page until the downloading is done.
Step 5. Lastly, hit "Save" button to download video from Rumble to local drive.
Also, some online video downloaders can help download Rumble videos online. But you're advised to install an ad blocking program to avoid tons of pop-ups, redirects and the like. All of these websites share the same downloading process: open the website > copy and paste the URL of a Rumble video > analyze the video > select one video resolution > download it to local drive. Unlike the above browser extensions, you don't have to change the video quality as the website will list all available resolutions for your choice.
I bet those are the simplest methods to download Rumble videos without any software required, which can be also workable for downloading videos from other video sharing websites. So, if this post is helpful to you, remember to give it a thumb up via your social media. Cheers!
