In October, Vine had announced that they’ll be shutting down their platform and users won’t be able to make Vine videos, but users still had the option to download their Vines from the archived website and today is the last day to be able to do that.
Users either have the option to download the clips via the Vine app or desktop website. You can choose the Vines you wish to download or if you want all of them, they’ll be emailed to you too.
“In the coming days, we’re also rolling out a way to make it easy for your Vine followers to follow you on Twitter. All of your Vines will continue to live on the vine.co website so you can browse all of the amazing videos you created over the years,” the Vine and Twitter team wrote in a blog post.
If you download your Vines from their website, an index of your captions, comments, likes as well as shares will be downloaded too — not the case if you download using the app.
The Vine app is being turned into the Vine Camera, which gives users the ability to capture 6.5 seconds long videos and either upload them to their twitter account or save them to the on your smartphone.
The Vine Camera app will also allow you to import videos from your phone gallery and edit them using the app’s new edit tools. The app also contains a preview screen which allows you to watch the edited video and undo any of the changes before uploading or saving it.

Bidding adieu to its users worldwide, the Vine team wrote, “Thank you for the culture that you have helped shape, and for the content, you’ll continue to make everywhere. You make the world a funnier, weirder, richer, more beautiful place.”
Once the Vine Camera is live (any time today), users won’t be able to download any of the archived videos from the Vine gallery. The archive will be accessible on the Vine website. Head over to their FAQs if you’ve any other questions.
