For a long time Facebook has been on the heels of YouTube in this audiovisual content. And it is that we want or not, we must recognize it, it is impossible to walk through our timeline of the social network without finishing playing a video of recipes or one of kittens. Probably on more than one occasion one of those videos you liked so much, that you wished you could download it on your phone to be able to play it offline or simply, it was the collector’s zeal that asked you to have it in the photo library. Do not worry, you’re not the only one.
Unfortunately, downloading videos from Facebook on our phone is not something that can be done automatically from the application, but with a couple of simple tricks can be carried out without problem. Let’s see what you should do in each case depending on your operating system.
Download on Android
To download any video from Facebook on an Android terminal, the procedure to follow is as follows: first of all we have to download the free tool “Video Downloader for Facebook” that is available on Google Play. This application allows us to download both our videos and videos of other users or pages. To start using it, it will be enough to login with our credentials.
Once we are inside the application with our open Facebook session, all we have to do is find the video that interests us in the different sections it offers, select it and download it, as simple as that.
Although in iOS we tend to find more restrictions when it comes to executing this type of actions, downloading videos from Facebook on an iPhone is also a relatively simple matter. In this case we will have to download the free application “Documents 5” from the App Store.
Download Videos Facebook
The next step is to open the Facebook application and choose which video is the one we want to save. Once we have it clear we will select the option “copy link” in the “share” menu. Now all we have to do is go back to the app and in the search bar we left open, paste the link. Automatically we will see the download option, select the quality and the video will be saved -ojo- in the application downloads folder.
How do I pass the video to my reel?
The idea of all this is to be able to save the video on our reel so we can see it directly or share it, right? Well, do not panic, there is a very simple solution. If we access the download folder of the application we will find all the videos that we have downloaded, select the one that we want to take to our reel and press the edit option. Among the options we find available we have to send it by mail and that’s where the solution is. We select this option and we send it to ourselves. Once we have received the email with the video, the only thing we will have to do is download it and voilá !, we already have it in our device to do with it what we please.
