Easiest Way To Download Facebook Video On PC & Mobile

Facebook hosts large number of unique videos that you do not found on YouTube or other video hosting sites. If you want to download any video on Facebook, you don't need any extra software.

A simple url trick will allow you to download the Facebook video whether you are using website on PC or mobile web or even Facebook mobile application.


Facebook.com on computer:
You just have to visit the mobile website of the standard Facebook page. To do this,
  • Add 'm' letter instead of 'WWW' in https://www.facebook.com after that the url will look like https://m.facebook.com 
Note that you have to play the video to get the option "Save video As". If the video is not playing, you cant download. Once you start the download, you can stop or close the tab.
  • Replace the WWW with m and click to play the video.
  • While playing video, right click on video and select 'save video as' option to save / download it.
  • Select appropriate location to save video.
Mobile Facebook website on mobile:
To save video on your mobile is very easy. If you are using mobile browser, you will be automatically redirected to mobile version of Facebook website i.e. https://m.facebook.com .  Just touch and hold on video to save it for later use.

On Facebook Android application:
Even though you use the Facebook app, you can always use the above trick to download the video. Browse Facebook website using any browser like Chrome for Android, or Firefox for Android or UC Browser.
But if you do not want to do that, you can save video using the Facebook application also but with little workaround.
  • Go to  the Facebook options by tapping the hamburger menu and click 'Saved'.
  • It will show you the list of saved videos, links and other stuff.
  • Click on video you want to download, you will get the option 'Open with ES Downloader'.
  • Click on 'Just once' or 'Always' to save the video for offline viewing.
Do you have any other easy way to download the Facebook videos? Or you never download the videos? Do you know, you can download YouTube videos without any software using Firefox? Please share your tricks..

  2. Yeah this doesn't work. Review rating = 0/10.

    1. Any reason? What problem you are facing?

  3. This is perfect for what I was looking for. Thanks for the sharing. I used to save facebook videos to my laptop with Acethinker Video Downloader, It is a cloud based software to download videos without install any software in your device. Share it here as an alternative method.

  4. I can get the mobile version and play then save as but the folders never pop up for saving. Why???

    1. The download folder is the default download folder for the browser. You can change that folder with your browser download folder settings.
