Ever wonder how you can get a copy of a Facebook video in your smartphone or PC?
You could get videos downloaded for later viewing, for sharing or just for reference. However, you can’t be bothered with using a 3rd party software or an app that captures the video files. Facebook in itself doesn’t allow users to download videos, but here’s a trick that will allow you to do the following:
- Save live Facebook videos
- Download videos in mp4 format
- Download private FB videos
GetfVid is one of the best options to download Facebook videos to save on your mobile phone or computer. You won’t need to use any software or app to do this.
Step 1. Scroll through your feed and locate the video you want to download.
Step 2. Right click on the video and a menu will appear. Choose “Show Video URL”.
Step 3. Click inside the box that has the URL to highlight the link and then click on “Copy”.
Go to the GetfVid website extension and paste the video URL into the text box. Click the green “Download Video” button and choose either an SD (standard definition) or HD (high definition) video. Then, you’ll be directed to the download page to start saving the video. The video file will be sent to your preferred or default download destination. Simply click on the folder or the file to either view the file or start watching it.

There’s no more manual downloading or having to use multiple sites just to get your favorite video clip. Moreover, the extension is safe to use and it doesn’t collect data over the web.
