Facebook is the biggest social networking site and there is no doubt about that. It has more than 2 Billion active users worldwide and it is increasing every day. They upload status, Pictures, and Videos online to grab Likes, Comment, and Share. Images can be easily saved from Facebook with a right-click but not the Videos.

  • Then hit the Download button. 
  • You will be redirected to another page of the same website where you will give two options to download the video. One is Download video in Normal quality and other is Download video in HD quality. 
  • If HD quality of Video is available, you're lucky.
  • You need to tap the available Download button. 
  • Finally, your video will be saved to your PC. 
There are some rare cases where the videos on Facebook may not be allowed to download using the URL method. 

In such a situation, the website will display the below message:

This video might be private (  or  ) and not public




Don't worry! I have another method to override this rare case. Continue to learn the next method.

Online Video Downloader Extension For Google Chrome


In the previous method, we've discussed FBdown.net website to download Facebook videos. 

The same website has their own plugin or extension, especially for Google Chrome users. On checking the extension for any other browser, nothing pulled out. It seems that they haven't rolled out the extension for other web browsers. 

  • You could get the extension from their website or simply go to Google Chrome Web Store. Search for FBDown Video Downloader
  • Add the extension to your chrome browser. 
  • Once installed the extension, log in to Facebook and browse for any video. 
  • Tap on the FB Down extension. The extension will grab the list of videos appeared on the page with Download option.

  • Tap on the Download button as shown above. 
  • You will be redirected to a page where the video has been processed to Download.

  • Click the "Download your Video" button to start downloading. 
It is one of the best FB Video downloader extensions. 

Well, I have one more idea. 

Now you're going to see the 3rd method to download Facebook videos.

3. Basic Mobile Browser  Mode For Facebook


The third method is all about browsing Facebook from a web browser that looks like a basic mobile browser.

Basic Mobile browser mode has limited functionality. It won't give you the best experience as of how you enjoy browsing Facebook on PC web browser. 

As the name implies, the Basic mobile browser mode is made for mobile phone user experience. 

It may not look good. So don't expect much from Basic mobile browser mode. 

If you say, "Why bother about the looks? I need only the Facebook video with original quality to download", go ahead and learn the final trick to download Facebook videos. 

  • Copy the Facebook Video URL using the first method mentioned in this post. 
  • Paste the URL into the web browser's address bar. 
  • Now replace "www" with "mbasic" (without quotation marks).
