China's answer to Google, Baidu is a search engine aimed at speakers of Mandarin Chinese within mainland China. As is the case with Google, Baidu is a multi-functional search engine capable of retrieving multimedia such as pictures and videos in addition to Web pages. As a result of lax copyright regulations within China, it's possible to download videos directly from Baidu. Use prudence when doing this, however -- if you suspect a video is copyrighted, don't download it onto your computer.


Step 1

Navigate to the Baidu homepage, click the characters that display second-to-right, which represent video, and enter your search term. Hit the "Enter" key.

Step 3

Click the two characters below the bottom, right corner of the video, which mean "Save." Choose a location on your computer, give the file a name and click "Save."
