Download Videos from Facebook using Chrome Extension


Sometime you might find some videos on facebook that you actually want to download and save for your future use. Well now facebook does not provide any simple way to download any uploaded videos, but if you are able to view the video then we have two easy ways you can use to download those videos on your PC. Well we will be using the Internet Download Manager tool or a simple Chrome Extension that simply gets the video and get it downloaded. So I have just created the above video that will help you in learning how actually both step works.

Downloading Facebook Videos using IDM

Well IDM (Internet Download Manager) is a tool for windows that can manage your downloads pretty easily. One can easily download files in bulk using IDM and your downloads can even be paused for future resuming.

  1. Download IDM Tool for Windows.
  2. Well this tool is not free but still you get 30 days trial period.
  3. So now after installing this tool, it will install its extension in chrome and all the browsers you actually have.
  4. Now just open up any of the video on Facebook and you will see a small POP-Up button asking you to download using IDM.
  5. Just click this button and it will ask the location, choose the location and then press Start Download.

Now your download will get started and you can easily view your video offline. So using this way you can even download the video on other video hosted websites like YouTube, Dailymotion and other major ones.

Download Facebook Videos using Chrome Extension

Well now there is another easy way using the chrome extension, well using this you can download videos from facebook, as soon as you will play your video, you will see video link and then you can download the video.

  1. Install the FVD Downloader Chrome Extension.
  2. Now you will see the downward arrow icon with the cross in the taskbar.
  3. Now just open any of your video and you will see the icon turned blue.
  4. Just click on that icon and then you can see the .mp4 video link, just press Download and your video will start downloading.
