After YouTube, Facebook has long since become the second-largest video platform on the internet. Just like Youtube, Facebook does not offer a download function for videos. That’s how it works:
Facebook is the king of social networks, and lately, it has shown its strong commitment to videos. So much so that we find ourselves on our friends’ walls with videos that remind us of our friendship, tutorials, cooking recipes in a few minutes? Surely more than once, you will have liked being able to save one of these videos. Now you can! Read carefully on how to download videos on Facebook.
How to download videos from Facebook?
Believe it or not, the process is much easier than you think, and you can download them even in HD without having to install any program or application.
Download Facebook videos through the browser
Windows users have it particularly easy for Facebook video download: All they need is a browser – for example, Edge. Here you open the relevant video post and copy its URL. You then only need to replace the “www” in the URL with an “m”. In this way, you can almost make Facebook “think” that you are accessing it via a mobile device. Now pause the video and right-click to open the context menu. With “Save video as”, the Facebook video is transferred directly to your hard disk and is now also available offline at any time. The disadvantage of this method: you cannot choose the quality of the video yourself.
Download Facebook videos on Windows or Mac with SnapDownloader
To download a Facebook video on Windows or Mac, we have to use a Facebook Video Downloader like SnapDownloader. Copy the link of a video from Facebook and then paste the link in SnapDownloader. Next, select the output format and video quality, and press the Download button to save the video to your computer.
How to download Facebook videos on your mobile?
Unfortunately, Facebook does not allow downloading videos on Android devices. Would you like to save Facebook videos on your mobile? We show you some ways to get it:
VideoDownloaders That Available on Google Play Store
Although it works similarly to the previous one, the most exciting thing about MyVideoDowloader for Android is that you can download videos that have been shared by your friends or groups in which you participate without having to share them on your wall as well.
ES File Explorer
It is a file manager that has its browser and from which you can access your Facebook and download the video you want. Of course, you will have to play the video content for a few seconds and then pause it so that a context menu appears with the option to download. Download it on your mobile device or share it in the application you want.
Don’t you trust any app? Then your Chrome browser can help you too. Access Facebook with your account from Chrome and search for the video you want to download. Play the content and, meanwhile, press your finger in the centre of the player. The option ‘save video’ will appear immediately.
