Our daily entertainment dose these days comes mostly from viral videos. The source of these videos is generally our favorite social media platform, Facebook. But what if you wish to share these videos from Facebook to other platforms? That’s where Facebook video downloader can help you out. Though we might be using Facebook more or less than the other platforms like WhatsApp, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram, we do come across videos we’d like to share with others via other platforms. Or maybe we’d like to download the video and save it for watching later. For these kind of situations, Facebook video downloader is the way out.
But, what is the Facebook video downloader and how to use it? That’s what we’re going to help you out with that today. Here’s a step by step guide on using Facebook video downloader .
Step 1: Download the FBDown.net app on your smart device
Go to the Playstore or Appstore on your phone or tablet, in case you want the video on your laptop or computer, then add the extension on your Chrome through the website https://www.fbdown.net/.
Step 2: Copy Video URL
Go to your Facebook feed or timeline and ‘Right Click’ on the video you want to download. Then select the option ‘Copy Video URL at current time’.
Step 3: Paste the link
Go to FBDOWN.net and paste the URL in the box provided for the link. Once the link is pasted click on ‘Download’
Step 4: Select the video quality
The Facebook video downloader also gives you a choice on what quality you’d like to have on the downloaded video. To avail this you need to click on either “Download normal quality video” or “Download HD video” (this depends on whether the selected video is available in HD quality) to start downloading the video.
Do keep a few things to note while you use the Facebook video downloader . Firstly, in case the video starts playing instead of downloading, then on the step number 4, you need to right click the link and select “Save as…” to download the video. And secondly, if you get an error while trying to download the video, then check if the video is public or private. Facebook video downloader cannot download private videos.
There is an alternate second method as well for using Facebook video downloader. For this, the steps vary as per how the video has been shared.
So, if the video is posted directly by a friend or a page that you follow, you need to right click the date of the video and copy the link location.
If the video is shared (via some other source) by a friend or a page that you follow, then you need to right click on “video” and copy link location.
The second and last step in this alternate method is to paste the link and click on download.
