It is really simple. Go to the specific Facebook video, right click on it and select “Copy link address”. [I used Mozilla Firefox here and it is recommended.]

After getting the video link, paste it in the download box as show in the picture below.

      Good article, Looking for this one.. Now so easy to download Fb Videos.

    • raosri1992srikanth

      But this is not working 🙁

    • Nancy

      This works for me (with my videos on fb) but I’m trying to help a friend who posted her videos on her fb page and when we get to step 3, neither of us get an option to ‘save link as’ mpeg. I am able to use the same steps and successfully save on my computer — but when I use the same steps to save hers — I can’t get the option to save as a mpeg? Can only save ‘text’. Any thoughts?

    • yodakingpin

      Does NOT work for “private” videos. USELESS for me, sorry!

    • Submit Core

      This is awesome info,let me try these tips to download videos…

    • Rebecca

      Didn't work — because it was a quicktime video and it says I need quicktime pro (which costs money) to download it. Any one know of a free work around?

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        Quicktime video? Which browser you tried Rebecca?

        • Rebecca

          firefox, latest version. video is on a facebook page. When I right click, it says I can download it, but only if I have quicktime pro — which I don't have, nor want to spend $30 for. I went so far as trying to view the source code, in an attempt to find where the actual video is, but couldn't find it with a quick scan. Was hoping there was an easier way.

          • S.Pradeep Kumar

            Oops, I think there is something wrong, for me it is working fine Rebecca.

            Can you try to download this sample video?


            I downloaded it. Worked perfectly here. If you want me to do that for you, I can do it.

            • Rebecca

              Wow — same problem for me. Huh. I paste the link in the downloader, it opens a new page. I right click — and it says I can, but only if I have quicktime pro.

              Would you be willing to try? It's a video of a dog saving another dog that got hit on the highway. I want it so I can show it to some students and fellow professionals — I'm an animal trainer and behaviorist.

              Link is:

              If you have success, we'll go from there.

              • S.Pradeep Kumar

                Rebecca, possible for you to download with this link?


              • Rebecca

                Got this message:
                The link to the video is not correct. There may not be the video.
                The privacy settings of video on Facebook does NOT allow the download.

                Odd, the message has a typo. Says I have to contact the persona and ask they reset their privacy settings. SIGH.

                I'm not sure why I didn't thin of this before, but maybe I can find the video elsewhere on the net.

              • Rebecca

                Bingo – found it on youtube. DUH!

                that does make me wonder though…was it just me? were you able to download from the link you posted?

              • S.Pradeep Kumar

                Yes I downloaded it, and it was inspirational. 🙂

                I mailed you the video, you can check it out mate.

              • Rebecca

                thank you!!

                maybe I should update my quicktime…oh, well. worry about it the next time this issue comes up.

                Thanks again!!! It's a great video, no? I know a lot of humans who wouldn't do that for another human!


              • S.Pradeep Kumar

    • jojo

      Thank you for posting an easy tool but if i haven't got a streaming video recorder I will definitely use this facebook downloader.

      And is it can be used to record videos from other sites? Is it the facebook only?

    • abigail joy

      hello, where will I paste the link address? I mean, do you have any suggested sites where i can download it?

    • Rohit

      gr8 wrk dude….

    • Yogesh Patel

      This tip is not working. Bad

    • X Price

      I tried this and it’s works. It’s really useful post. Thanks for sharing.

    • jan

      Right clicking gives me 3 options: 1. About QT plugins 2. Pro-save as source (can’t do unless you buy Pro) and 3. Pro-save as QT movie (can’t do unless you buy). I went into the control panel and ensured MP4 was associated with windows media but QT still opens the FB video.

      Also, I tried going to File, but “save” is not an option. This is the video….

      I’m not computer savvy and have put off trying to download and save utube and FB videos due to what will sure to be disappointing and complicated…..but your site makes it so simple 🙂 if only I can get this ……..

      Thanks for your help.

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        Sorry for the inconvenience Jan, meanwhile you can try this site. 🙂

        • Wtan

          Great, thanks for the updated link pradeep.. it can be a real hassle to keep up with these workarounds! But hey, better than nothing.. a Firefox addon would certainly help things.

      • Res

        I had the exact same issue and was having even less luck with other sites offering the same service. I found that it can work if you go through the steps you would normally go through and just change your saving method.

        Enter the video link on the site, click "Download" and then the "Download this video" button. Let the video generate in a new window and if you only get the Quick Time Pro options when you right click, then go to the internet browser File menu and select "Save Page As" – the page is an .mp4 so when you save it, it will save as an MP4 video. This was done in Mozilla Firefox.

    • jan

      Worked until step #3. Quicktime opens FB video but won’t let me save. I changed default to windows media player but it still opens with quicktime. Wants me to buy Pro7 in order to save it. Any thoughts as to how to fix this? Thanks.

    • sonu

      is there a software for doing so?

      for me idm works sometimes only on facebook, i don’t know why…

    • Karen
