How to Download Facebook Videos on Android and Computer

3

Videos have become a popular way to express one’s feelings nowadays. YouTube is undoubtedly the most used platform for uploading and sharing videos, but not all the videos in the world are shared through YouTube. Almost 8 out of 10 videos on the web are uploaded to YouTube and the other 2% by social networking sites like Facebook, Vine, etc. There’s no official way to download YouTube videos, but there are 3rd-party tools, plugins, and applications like TubeMate for Android that allow us download the videos.

But do you know how to download a video that has been uploaded to Facebook servers? Currently, Facebook does not have any option to download videos to your Android device or your PC. In this article, we’re going to write about how to download Facebook videos on your PC and on your Android device. We’re going to leave an alternative method for each platform, to make it easier for you to choose.

Web Version

The web version of Facebook is what most of the world’s population uses. I myself prefer the web version of Facebook over the mobile version. Just like the easy settings available on the web version of Facebook, downloading a video is easy too. There are two popular methods to download a Facebook video for PC, one is without the need of any third-party application, and the other is a website that downloads a video for you.

Direct Method

This method involves nothing but a Chrome browser (other browsers may do), the video, and some brains to do the task. Follow the steps to download a Facebook video.

  1. Log into your Facebook account, and find the video that you want to download.
  2. Click on the video, and wait till it pops up.
  3. Now, quickly replace the ‘www.’ in the address bar, with ‘m.’, and then press Enter.
  4. A new page will open up, play the video again, and then right-click on it, then click on the ‘Save Video As’ option to download it. Refer to the screenshots below to get an idea of the procedure.

Alternate Methods

This method requires nothing but another link for a website, and the link of the video you want to download from Facebook. Follow the steps below to download a Facebook video without the hassle to download any app to do that for you.

  1. Go to www.video-fb.com.
  2. Log into your Facebook account, and copy the link address of the video that you want to download.
  3. Paste the copied link address of the video into the search box on the website you just opened.
  4. Click on the ‘Download’ button that appears below the video you want to download.
  5. Your video will automatically be downloaded.

There is yet another easier method of downloading a Facebook video using your web browser, right-click on the Facebook video and copy link address. Then KeepVid website and paste the video URL into the address box. Then click the Download button.

Just right-click the video download link and select “Save link as…” to download the video.

Android Version

Both the methods shown above are for the web version of Facebook, the version which you use on a PC. But, what if you’re an Android user and have no PC to download a Facebook video? Well, there is a way to do that on Android too. We have described two methods below that require a third-party application to be downloaded.
