Facebook, a well known social networking website, is not only used for status updates, but also for sharing some amazing videos. Daily, I discover many hilarious, funny and amazing videos on Facebook. Few users share YouTube video and some upload it from their computer and then share it. Video uploaded on Facebook with the help of its default uploader is known as Facebook video.
One problem faced by Facebook users is they don’t have any idea to download the Facebook videos shared by other users. Facebook allows users to share videos easily to your friends but there is no option to download it. There are many add-ons to download YouTube and videos from other sites.
Facebook Video is a Firefox add-on that lets you download Facebook videos easily shared by your friends. Download and install the add-on and restart the Firefox browser. Now visit any Facebook video shared by your friend. You’ll find two links at the bottom of the video. First link is to download the video and second one is to convert video.
Right click on the “Download video” link and choose the option “Save link as”.
Window explorer will open, asks you to select the location of video you are going to download. Select the location and click on “Save” button.
The video will start downloading and you can see the progress of download in Firefox downloads.
All done. You’ve successfully downloaded the video on your computer.
How to convert Facebook videos to other format
Apart from downloading videos, you can also convert it to any other format easily. This add-on is attached with Zamzar service and redirect you to it. Click on the “Convert video” link given below the video.
You’ll be redirected immediately to the Zamzar service. Here, select the conversion format and insert your email ID in the box given. Now hit the convert “button”. Zamzar will convert the video and send you the link to download the converted inside your email.
That’s how you can download and convert Facebook videos easily. Do you know any other method to download Facebook video? Mention it in the comments.
