Facebook is one word that no one is unfamiliar with. Everybody is connected to everyone else via Facebook. It enables people to message each other, upload and download pictures, audio and videos. And when someone uploads it, it is very obvious that someone will be able to download it too. People are so much into social networking that everything that they like is up there on this site and hence everyone can see it. The pictures are something that can be easily downloaded and uploaded but people tend to get confused when it comes to videos.
They don’t really understand what exactly to do when they have to download a video from Facebook. The uploading of video takes a lot of time when one is trying to do it from the laptop or from the PC itself. Since this takes so much of time the downloading would too involve some or the other process. Usually there are smart phones which have an option of downloading any content which is up there on Facebook and there are few too which don’t allow the same. Then what do we have to do then? Well there are a few steps which can be followed if we want to download videos that have earlier been uploaded on Facebook. The only thing that people are scared of is the person who has uploaded the video might just take it down before you even get to enjoy it properly. What can one do in that case? Here is what you have to do:
- Since Facebook is a place where the videos from different sites can be hosted, one can view and save the videos directly from those sites. If one does not find any host site one can be sure that the video might have been hosted by Facebook itself.
- The various videos have the own link addresses and the host addresses. You can see the video that you want to download and then right click on it to see an option that reads ‘copy link address’ you can then copy the address. If not you can see the address on the bar on the top of the page, and copy that too when the video has already been loaded. Eg- “http://facebook.com/photo.php?v=xxxxxxxxxxxxx” or http://facebook.com/video/video.php?v=xxxxxxxxxxxxx
- There are a lot of video downloading applications and software that are available especially for Facebook videos. One can log on to those sites and see if they can get hold of the videos or not. But here only the button next to the download link the real one as the rest of them are fake links, and this is one way you can download Facebook videos.
- When one has used different browsers for viewing these videos, there are different ways in which the video can be downloaded. There are options called the ‘Developer Tools’ followed by the ‘Undock’ button. The following list will show you a list of videos that are currently being played and by seeing the name you will know how to save the video.
Hence the video can be downloaded from Facebook.
