    Welcome to Android Central! Where are you downloading the videos from, and what directory are they going to? If you want to hide them from the Gallery app, create a directory for those videos and use a file manager app to add a blank text file titled ".nomedia" (without the quotes, but with the leading period). This will instruct the system to ignore that directory when scanning for media files to add to the gallery database.

    It may also not show them in a video app. (It depends on whether the app is looking in a specific directory, doing its own scan or using the Media Scan database. If the last one, a .nomedia file hides it from the video app too, because it's hidden from Media Scan.)
