Ever wanted to download some of those hilarious videos you see on Facebook? Well, with these top tips you can find out exactly how to do so with minimal effort.
Facebook is everything these days. Even though a million young people in Europe alone deleted their accounts in the last year, the growth of the social networking site is still unprecedented, with the main demographic joining the app being the middle ages, the elderly, and those from developing countries who are rapidly gaining access to the internet.
Facebook used to be a place where you would go online to share statuses and comment on your friend’s (who were actually your friends) walls. Now, the app is a little different – get a notification and the chances are someone hasn’t invited you to the most lit party of the year, rather, someone has just commented on a post in a group you’re in. It’s a little depressing really, if annoying, the amount of push the app has made to get people interacting with it.
But let’s not move too fast, Facebook has been evolving on many fronts in recent years – notably, it’s upped its game on what you can do inside the app. With a fully kitted out video section and a functioning marketplace, Facebook is now a lot more than just a messaging and photo sharing service. There are many ways to make your brand stand out on the app, be it for personal or business reasons, you can make your own page, share videos and sell your products, or just express your interests and argue with people in the comments section.
But what if you want to save some of this offline? With a picture it’s easy – you can just screenshot it from within the app and viola, it’s yours. But with video, things are a little more tricky. That being said, there are many ways to save Facebook videos offline to watch later on in the day. In this article we’ll outline some of the most effective (and hassle free) approaches to getting all your favorite hilarious and inspirational content off the app and onto your Android. Let’s get into it.
How to Download Videos from Facebook: Browser Method
To download videos from Facebook on Android you can simply download some third party software and then copy the URL into here and begin downloading the video. This method involves having both the app and your browser open, and as such it may both some users – however, this is a foolproof way to download videos from Facebook and certainly one that you should consider.
Simply open the Facebook app and find the video you want to download. Next, press the three dot Settings icon in the top right of the video and select “Copy Link.” From here, open your browser and go to https://catch.tube/ and insert the link into the bar. Press the red button that says “Show Media List” and select the format that you want. Now it will download – when it’s finished you can open it and watch it or save it in your files. This is probably the easiest method of downloading videos from Facebook and is generally the most common way that most third party software apps will perform the operation.
KeepVid – The Most Popular Option
When it comes to downloading videos online, KeepVid has a pretty solid track record. The app boasts tens of millions of downloads and has been a popular way to get YouTube videos offline for years now. On top of this they’ve also been routinely used to download videos from other sites like Instagram, Dailymotion, and of course Facebook.
To download videos from Facebook with KeepVid, you simply have to install the KeepVid app, then find the video you want, copy the link (in the same way that you’d do so with Catch Tube, open the KeepVid app and paste the link into the app, then choose the quality you want to download it in and proceed.
This is an easier way seeing as apps tend to load faster than your browser and the whole process is just more simple and optimized. You can download multiple videos at once with KeepVid and have this action perform in the background so that it won’t interrupt with your other tasks – be warned though, as downloading many videos at once will slow down your device until the videos are downloaded. Figure out how much your phone can handle and don’t push it too far.
Another option is Video Downloader for Facebook, which was specially made for saving videos on Facebook, try it out, it works perfectly just as Keepvid.
If you’re looking to download videos from Facebook, then try these two great methods – you’ll be surprised at how functional and quick they are. If we had to choose one, we’d recommend that you use KeepVid as the app is more specifically optimized for the task and is less shaky than downloading via a browser.
