Save Facebook Video Cover

Facebook is one of the most famous social platforms the world has ever seen. Users of Facebook gain access to all kinds of information from any industry in the world. When they are given the feast of resourceful videos, at the same time they interact with each other through pressing the ‘like’, ‘share’, and ‘comment’ button.
One of the biggest puzzles of Facebook users is that they cannot save Facebook videos to their PC or portable devices. This problem has things to do with the way Facebook transmitting its data – streaming. Streaming videos or audios is won’t last long and they expire the moment users cut off their internet. Besides, Facebook officially doesn’t provide its users with a means to download their videos. Today I am going to introduce you guys two ways – download Facebook videos and record Facebook videos to save users’ favorite content to their devices.

Method One: Save Facebook Videos to PC without Additional Software

Method one has nothing to do with ads spam or malware. All the procedures are carried out within web browsers.

The mechanism of this method is simple. Users do some changes to the video link and make it downloadable. This approach doesn’t need other software to save Facebook videos. With the help of a mere browser, users are able to download the videos from Facebook, so the method is super suitable for PCs (Windows and Mac), portable devices like Android or iOS phones.

One fatal flaw of this method is that users can’t download a batch of videos at one go, they would spend a lot of time on it if they have a group of videos waiting in line. So in this case, we suggest our users record facebook videos (Click here and jump to method two).
