I am preparing a presentation to analyze our industry’s current status. I find some other videos from Brightcover. The video showcases the status very vividly. And I want to add the video to my PowerPoint, as it can present my point more directly. However, I googled many ways but all failed. Can anyone tell me how to download Brightcove video?
