The social media platform options range from Facebook to Pinterest to LinkedIn.

Make sure that your video template is compatible in format and dimensions with the social media platform you are sharing it on.

Removing Canva Watermarks

If you have a free Canva user account, Canva will prompt you to upgrade to a Canva Pro account when downloading videos.

You can still download the video using a free account, but some of the videos will be marked with Canva watermarks.

Why Can’t I Download Video from Canva?

Are you having problems downloading videos from Canva?

There are several reasons why you might be prevented from downloading a Canva video. Try following these troubleshooting steps. 

1. Check your internet connection. If you are properly connected to the internet, you might also want to check the connection isn’t too weak to support downloading large files.

If this is the case, move to a place with a stronger signal if you’re using a mobile device, or try rebooting your modem. 

2. Check the video format is compatible with Canva. Canva supports MP4 and MOV.

If your video is in a different format you will need to change it to a Canva-compatible format.

3. Check the video or images in the video are not subject to a copyright license. If they are, this could be preventing you from downloading the video.

Check the video copyright license and either upgrade to a Canva Pro account or pay to use the video.

4. The last troubleshooting possibility is that the video could be too large to download. 

Try reducing the number of elements in your video. Canva also recommends keeping your video to 30 minutes or less, and reducing the resolution down to 1080p (1920×1080) if possible. 

Hopefully, after following these tips, you’ll be back on your way to downloading videos from Canva so you can share them with your followers and friends.
