  1. 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?

  2. 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?

      • 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.

  3. I use video download helper addon for firefox but some times it too stuck this another way can give easy access to download more video Thanks

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

  5. 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 πŸ™‚ if only I can get this ……..

    Thanks for your help.

      • 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.

    • 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Simple trick man πŸ™‚

    Though you can easily download with video downloader addons or the flash addons.

  8. Yea bro, more than these sites, IDM makes the work easier.. one of the famous youtube download goes offline max..

    Nice post still πŸ™‚ cheers.
