The day of reckoning has finally arrived: Vine as we know it will officially shut down today, leaving in its wake the pared down Vine Camera app. Unfortunately, that also means you don't have much time left to download all of your Vine clips before they become inaccessible.
If you have any clips that you'd like to hold onto, now's your last chance to save them. You should be able to complete the process on your phone, but Vine also offers to an option to email yourself a link to download an archive of your Vines on its website. From Vine:
Click the "Download Your Vines" button on the vine.co website from your desktop computer, or select this option in the mobile app. Once you have requested your Vines an email, with a link to your Vines, will be sent to the email address associated with your account, so please make sure it is correct before you request your Vines. Note that the download link will only be active for 72 hours.
Once downloaded, you'll have an archive of mp4 video files, along with an index.html file that will let you peruse the videos in your browser. The Vine website will also continue to exist for the foreseeable future as an archive of clips that have been uploaded, but you'll no longer be able to upload new clips.
