How do i download videos from Facebook? So the previous evening I saw this astonishing 3D illusion art on Facebook and I needed to download it, however before I could check on it, it was no longer there, I went through each video that day, yet I was unable to see it.
Indeed, you probably won’t have the option to track down that pleasant video, however, realize that another nice one may come along the way and you would prefer not to miss it. before I thought of this article, I had a similar issue, and I gave figuring it a shot and the amazing thing there is that I sorted out a superior method to download videos from Facebook.
Many popular sites regularly make it hard to download content, typically for copyright and revenue reasons. some different applications that can do this equivalent thing might have such countless ads moving here and there and may simply be irritating.
Download videos from Facebook with laptop
it’s pretty easy downloading a video from Facebook with your computer without visiting any website, though there are good websites that can get all that done without going through any process.
But most of these websites are annoying due to the ads running on them. the steps below will take you through everything.
Facebook provides you with the video link, copy this link by click on the three-doted icons (ellipsis).
Note that you can save the picture for another time by clicking on “SAVE VIDEO” link facebook provides you with, note again that this video are not stored in you local storage devices but you can access them on your facebook saved videos anytime you want.
The image provided below will give you a virtual guide on how to copy the video link.
This process might be a little bit complex but it is not difficult, if you follow up with the steps carefully you will achieve what you want.
This part will indeed be confusing but I will try to make it easy for you to understand. After copying the link it will look like this https://fb.watch/8uJ8ORqqUF/ , paste this link in the address bar, and click enter, after that it will load on the same page but with the full URL which looks like this https://web.facebook.com/watch/?v=379903646963954, copy the link and replace web to mbasic which will look like this https://mbasic.facebook.com/watch/?v=379903646963954
using this https://mbasic.facebook.com/watch/?v=379903646963954 will force the browser to load the old mobile version on desktop and that is the one we will use. Your video should look like this after loading the URL
Right-click the video, and select Open link in new tab.
This is the complete method and here you can save the video to your preferred folder but the problem here is that the video comes with low quality, you don’t decide to choose the quality
But that’s not a big problem, there are easy solutions to get this done and it is not as complex as the first one but here we will be visiting a site called FDown (formerly known as FBDown) but they dropped a letter for simplicity, there are so many other sites out there but we won’t list them here as this article will only concentrate on FDown for this example.
FDown runs Ads to keep the light on, you may see things like download buttons, don’t click on them to avoid annoying redirection.
You can have FDown downloader as an extension on your chrome browser which will make your download easier and faster without visiting the main page.
- Visit FDown, paste your video link after that click on the download button.
- choose your preffered video quality, copy the link and paste on the address bar
- just like the first method, save your video in your preffered directory

FDown also works on ios and Android phones, we won’t be going through many steps since it’s just like downloading it on your desktop. Make sure you have a chrome browser installed or the mobile firefox on your phone since it won’t work properly on safari. Private video may not download but how do you know it is a private video?, to avoid going through stress make use of the private downloader URL FDown.net/private-downloader.php.
You can also download quality videos here too, just Find a video on Facebook (in any browser) and click the option to share it. Then in the share screen, look for the option to Copy Link.
Then open Firefox, load FDown.net, paste in the URL, and press download. You’ll see the options to get a video in Normal Quality or HD Quality again; tap and hold your finger on whichever you prefer and you’ll get an option that says Download Link, then a Download Now confirmation.
After downloading, if you are using Firefox, click on the firefox hamburger icon then click on downloads and save the video in your camera roll section for easy access.
For Android users, the video automatically gets saved on your device.
