Have you just seen a video on Facebook that you loved and want to download? You thought it would be easy to be hosted on YouTube and from there, you could download it, but it turns out not. The video has been uploaded directly to Facebook and the option to download does not appear in “Options.” Does this mean that it is not possible to download videos from Facebook? Everything that is on the Internet can be downloaded. You just have to know how to do it. Therefore, in this article, we tell you How to download videos from Facebook.
How to download videos from Facebook?
The first thing you should know if you want to download a video from Facebook is that it is essential, at least for the moment, to use an external program to be able to download it. There is still no possibility of downloading a video if the social network does not give you the option. So, the first example that we will give you is that of www.fbdown.net.
The first step is to get the video link. To do this, right-click on the video and click on “Copy link path.”
Go to the page that we have provided in step 1 and the blank field do ctrl + v (or right button> paste) to paste the URL of the video. Click on “Download.”
You can choose if you want to download the video in high or low resolution. Right-click “Download Video in Low Quality” for low resolution and “Download Video in High Quality” for high resolution, and select “Save link as.”
Accept the download and voila! You already have the Facebook video you wanted on your computer. As you can see, downloading videos from this social network was not as complicated as it seemed. You just needed to know the right tools.
However, this is not the only way to download a video from Facebook. Currently, there are other websites that work in a very similar way to the one we just told you about, such as:
In all of them, you will have to copy and paste the URL of the video you want to download and decide the output format to download it to your computer.
If you want to upload your own video to Facebook, you will have to log in to your profile (with your username and password), access the “Photos / Videos” section of your same page and there you will be able to select the file you want to show publicly. If you want to create a video album, you will have to access the same option, “Photo,” but then click on the word “Album” to create a new one or add the video in which you want.
