It would be nice etiquette to NOT use caps. It's actually harder to read.

 

Use the library tab and either select a video or view it and use the download selection (you may need to use the 3 dot menu selection to see this). You also need to have all permissions in the phone settings for the app allowed so access is allowed to save the file. How you do this depends on whether you're on iOS or Android.

Another alternative is to plug a hard drive in the back of the base unit. Turn on the external stroage option in settings for the base, and turn off the auto overwrite selection. Then every now and then check the status of the external hard drive in the Arlo app to make sure it has plenty of capacity left. When the drive gets down to 10% capacity or so, consider unplugging it and plugging in a new one.
