How to Save Videos from Facebook: Know the Method for All Videos
Download Video You Uploaded
If you had uploaded the videos you now wish to download, you can follow the steps outlined below to download the videos.
Log into your Facebook account and browse the videos found in your photos/Albums.
Once you open the video, click on the option link found directly below the video.
In the options displayed, you will find things like, Download HD and Download SD, then click on the link based on the quality of the video you wish to download.
Note: SD means Standard Definition, and HD means High Definition. HD remains the best quality of the video you can get, but it is usually a much larger file size.
If you cannot find any of these links, then you were not the person who uploaded the video in question. Then you should go to the link that says download a video posted by a friend or family member.
Download Any Video on Facebook
Let us make use of this video URL as an example:
All you need to do is outlined below:
Replace the www in the URL with an m. This will change the example URL into something like this: https://m.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153084880278463
Right-click on that particular video and choose the save video option found on the displayed menu.
Then choose where you wish to save the video on your hard drive. You are done.
This method ought to work on every Facebook video. This method loads the Facebook mobile version instead of the desktop version, even when you do not use a mobile device to gain access to the site. Saving mobile videos uses HTML5 video instead of Adobe Flash, and this activates the HTML5 video player found on Facebook, and this in turn shows the save video option when you right click on the context menu.
This method, however, has one setback: When you turn to the mobile version of the site, the quality of the video decreases. Even the player does not give you room to improve the video quality, and it is not yet clear if there is any parameter that can be added to the URL in order to improve it.
