Over the years, Facebook has moved from just being a social media website where users could only share text posts and Images to where you could also share videos. In fact, I watch more videos on Facebook than I do on Youtube.
There are lots of funny, educative and life-hack videos on Facebook; once you start watching, you keep wanting more.
In this article, I will show you how to download your favorite videos from Facebook.
Facebook does not allow you to download videos directly from the website; you need the help of third-party apps or websites.
How to Download Facebook Videos Online
These websites are so easy to use. Visit any of the websites mentioned (either fbdown.net or savefrom.net) and enter the URL of the Facebook video you want to download. For this article, I will be using fbdown.net as my reference.
While watching the Facebook video you want to download, copy the link at the address bar.
Visit Fbdown.net and paste the link you copied into the space provided. See image below;
Click the download button to begin downloading the video.
Using a 3rd Party Android App

Open the app after installing. Click on “Got it” after reading the instruction then click on “Browse Facebook”.
Log in to your Facebook account via the “Video Downloader for Facebook” app. Locate the Facebook Video you want to download and click on the play button.
An option will come up asking if you want to watch or download the video. Click on the download button to start downloading the video.
Download Facebook Videos on iOS Devices
As you may already know, iOS devices are products from Apple. Due to the many restrictions on iOS, so many apps on the Apple app store for downloading Facebook videos either contain so many ads or they do not work at all.
Here is the best way to download Facebook Videos on iOS;
First of all, download an app called MyMedia – File Manager from the App Store.
MyMedia is a download manager and also works as a file manager for iOS devices. After you have installed the MyMedia app on your device, open the Facebook app and locate the video you want to download.
While you play the video, an option to share the video will appear. Click on the option and select copy link. This would copy the video URL to your iOS device.
MyMedia – File Manager also app comes with a web browser. Open the Mymedia app to access the web browser, type in fbdown.net in the address bar and wait for the page to load.
Paste the Facebook video URL you copied previously into the space provided for that option and click the download button.
Select the download option you want; either normal quality or in HD quality.
The app will display an option to name the file then Viola!! Your download begins immediately.
You can now access the Facebook video on the media tab of the app.
The Videos are downloaded exactly how they are on Facebook; no watermarks or glitches. Do you have a better way to download videos from Facebook? Do let me know in the comment section.
