Harry Potter is probably one of the most successful fantasy movie series in this century. Consists of 8 brilliant movies, Harry Potter has captured millions of loyal fans all around the world and gained a box office of more than $7.7 billion. However, with the series ending in 2011, most Harry Potter fans are not able to go to a movie theater to enjoy some of the movies in series. So, if you want to watch or re-watch any of the Harry Potter movies, then downloading the movies from online sources might be a good option. Today we're going to introduce you some of the best ways to download Harry Potter movies and gave you a detailed guide on how to do that. Now let's get started.
Part 1: What are Harry Potter Series Movies?
Based on the eponymous novels by author J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter is one of the longest British fantasy movies series of all time. There are 8 Harry Potter movies produced throughout the 10 years from 2001 to 2011. If you are still confused about what this series is made of, here is a full list of all Harry Potter movies.
I believe not all Harry Potter fans have watched all 8 movies of this series. If you missed out some of the movies in the list, or if you want to re-watch your favorite ones, downloading the movie from online sources would be a great idea. Now let’s see how to download Harry Potter movies in the simplest ways.
Part 2: Download Harry Potter Movies Online
Using an online video downloading website is probably one of the most convenient ways to download your favorite Harry Potter movies. With an online video downloader tool like savefrom.net, you can download any online video from sources like YouTube without having to install an additional program on your computer. Some of the online video downloader websites even offer a Google Chrome web browser extension so that you can directly download a video on its web page with a click of the mouse.
However, the downsides of this kind of online video downloader websites are just as obvious as their advantages. Usually, you cannot download videos in high resolution with this kind of online video downloader tool. Also, the downloading speed is also extremely limited, and you may not have any additional customization options.
If you want to use an online video downloader tool to download your Harry Potter movies but don't know how, now I'm going to use savefrom.net as an example to show you the detailed process.
Step 1: Visit the website with your web browser.
Step 2: Copy the URL of the video that you want to download, and then paste it into the URL box. After that, click on the green “Download” button.
Step 3: Wait for a couple of seconds to let the website fetch the video from its source. Then you should be able to see the video information below the URL box. Now click the tiny triangle button beside the “Download” button to choose a resolution and video format, then click the “Download” button to start downloading the video with your web browser.
Besides the method introduced above, there is actually another simpler way to download a video with savefrom.net. If you want to download a YouTube video with this tool, simply add “ss” before “YouTube” in the URL of your video. Then go to that URL you would be able to see your video ready to be downloaded.
However, as mentioned above, both of the online downloading approaches have various limitations and cannot deliver the best performance for Harry Potter movie downloading tasks. Now I'm going to introduce another way, which is more efficient and powerful comparing to this method.

As you can see from the comparison table above, Leawo Video Downloader wins in almost every aspect. Although the online video downloading website savefrom.net is easier to use because it doesn't require an independent software, the limitation of the online tool is also obvious. You can download videos in lower quality with this tool just fine. But for videos in 1080P or higher, there's not much that savefrom.net can do for you. Also, savefrom.net only supports limited online video sources and does not have advanced video downloading functions like multitasking, smart settings, instant playback preview, M3U8 downloading and more. So, by comparison, Leawo Video Downloader is definitely a better choice if you want to download a Harry Potter movie in high quality and high speed.
