Hello Tony, glad to help you! Please refer to the content below to solve the trouble.

It is quite an awesome site to help businesses know about how to improve the existing video and identify what content should be included in the videos in the future
By default, contacts invited into Wistia are not allowed to download media files and currently, Wistia does not have any live streaming capabilities, which means people are not permitted to download media files from Wistia.com directly at the present. If you want to download it to your desktop without hassle, it seems it is no way officially.
Easy ways to download wistia videos.
Even though Wistia has protected those uploaded videos from being downloaded directly from its site, we have researched a way out bypassing the restriction.
Method One:Use Downloader
As a full-featured tool that can download, record and convert videos, Video Download Capture, unlike other freeware tools which only works with a few video sites or file formats, is a powerful tool which can help you capture videos from nearly all video hosting sites on the internet. Embedded a detector, it could detect the video which is playing right now and add it to download automatically to your PC. If you want to view the videos at any time without any internet connection on your any devices, this Wistia video downloader could also make all difficulties give way to you. Just follow the steps below to figure it out.
2. Launch the tool and navigate to Wistia.com.
3. Play the video you want to download from Wistia.
4. The application will auto-detect the video you are playing and add it to download automatically.
Note: The steps below are to show you how to convert the file applicable to your devices.
1. Right click on the video you want to download and choose “Add to convert”.
2. Hit “Profile” and select the format you want for the video.

Method Two: Use Recorder
Alternatively, you can take advantage of a recorder to download Wistia video. Streaming media protocols won’t be the bottleneck restriction stopping you from downloading videos you like any more. The Recorder allows you customize the size and length you wish your video to be. As it finished its course, the copy of the video is fully downloaded on your PC. Something should be highlighted is the quality of the recorded video is the same as the original one. Here are the details.
1. Download and install the application.
2. Choose “Record Screen”, hit “Start” and set up the area for the video.
3.Click on “Ok” and it starts to record the video.
Tips: This tool is really a time saver. It allows you to record the video from any point of it, instead of downloading it from the beginning. If you want to view the videos on other portable devices, it is also available. The way is similar to the steps mentioned within method one.
