To download a shared video on Linkedin, nothing could be simpler, you just need:

Paste in the web address bar the link copied previously, you will then arrive on a url such as linkedin.com/posts/
- At this point, all you have to do is retrieve the exact link of the video embedded in the post.
To do this, right-click just above the video in the publication then click on

the inspector to arrive directly on the URL of the Linkedin video to recover and
