How to Download Videos From Facebook

Lots of people upload videos on Facebook daily but you can only play those videos, you’re not allowed to download them. Sometimes, you probably wish to save some of these videos and watch them later but there’s no download option on Facebook. There are several ways to download Facebook videos which ranges from using different browser addons to different online services that allow you to freely download Facebook videos. Out of the different methods, I came up with four which I consider the best. These methods also work on other online video streaming sites.

1. Browser Addons
There are lots of browser addons for downloading facebook videos but some of them are out of date. The most popular one last year which is Facebook Video no longer works but I ran a search on Firefox Addon site and came up with two addons which I personally tested out of the many I saw.

  1. NetVideoHunter Addon For Firefox
  2. Download Flash and Video Browser Addon
After installing any or both of these addons, restart your browser, go to the video page and play. The addon icon is highlighted in blue and you can click on it to download the video. Both of them work in a similar manner. 

These addons also allow you to download videos from Dailymotion, Facebook, Metacafe, MySpace Video,,,, Spike,, YourFileHost,,,,,,,,, and all the other popular  videos sites.

2. GreaseMonkey Script

Whether you know what GreaseMonkey is or not, installing it on your browser lets you customize the way web pages behave with javascript instead of addons. With just a snippet of javascript, it can do exactly what a browser addon does.

After installing greasemonkey, install this user script:

Facebook HD Video Downloader

Simply go to the video page and refresh, you should now have a download link
