Q: How do you convert an HTML video to MP4?
A: To answer this question, it's essential for us to first know what HTML is. HTML is short for Hypertext Markup Language which is used to design a web page. It is a format for document instead of for video. So there is no HTML video exists and I reckon what you really want to ask is how to convert embedded video to MP4 from the HTML page. If that's what you're concerned about, you may take a relief now because what's left is all about how to download videos from websites. Let's go to the next part to see "how to convert HTML video to MP4" in detail.
To convert website video to MP4 from an HTML page, you'll need an "HTML to MP4 converter". I've tested many such "converters" out there on the market in terms of their usability and features, and finally picked out the best product - WonderFox HD Video Converter Factory Pro, which can convert any video from any site to MP4 in high quality. Here is how it works:

Open the HTML page and play the video. On the top address bar, copy the full-length URL link of the video by right-clicking or press hotkey “Ctrl + A” then “Ctrl + C.”
Note. Sometimes the real video link is not in the top address bar but hidden in an M3U8 playlist. If you can’t download the video through the address link, chances are high that you are in the second situation. These two articles will explain more and help you solve the problem: how to download HLS videos; how to download Blob videos.
Launch HD Video Converter Factory Pro and open Downloader. Click on + New Download > Paste and Analyze the URL. Wait for a second till the detailed information of the video appears. Choose the download format, resolution, and size for the video. Then click OK to add it to the download task. Hit Download All to start the downloading. And you'll complete the "HTML to MP4 conversion".
