How to right click an embedded link to save to my Android phone?

Posted

How can I simulate a "right click and save target as" on an embedded link in a web page? I'm trying to save 2 videos, one is a product demo and the other is an assembly and installation for a product I'm planning on purchasing. The vids are embedded click able links in the product description web page. I'm running android KitKat OS on a samsung gn3.

Figured it out. Never mind. Clicked link that I wanted to download. Long pressed window playing the video, not the link itself. Used "save video" option from the context menu that appeared after the long press. Located the file using the Gallery app. Selected the file from there, selected the player to use. Voila. Offline play of a downloaded video. Happy. Happy. Happy. Hope this helps someone else who is new to both Android and/or FF Mobile. I have been using an Android smartphone for just over 2 months. Before that I used a Windows laptop exclusively. Android is truly a paradoxical catharsis. Challenging, but not insurmountable.

Addendum: the content is playable but I don't know the file type. I want to be able to play the install video outside when I install it but when I have no network or wifi available. That's why I'm asking.
