After reading this article, you will learn three ways on how to download videos from Facebook to computer. If you want to save a video from Facebook, read on and apply one of the ways to get the video you like immediately.

Facebook is the largest social networking site in the world and one of the most widely used online social media. You can post texts, photos, videos, and more on the network as you like. With the development of rich media, there are more and more users who use videos for communication, recreation, education, or other purposes. Thus, it's not strange that, at one time or another, you may want to download a video from Facebook to your computer for your own use.

How Can You Download a Video from Facebook

Then how to download a video from Facebook to computer? As we all know, there is no "Download" button available on Facebook that allows you to save a video to your computer. Luckily, there are proven ways that work to save Facebook videos to computer successfully. Generally, you have three choices to download videos from Facebook to your computer, including using a reliable Facebook video downloader app, online video downloader, or browser extension.

How to Download a Video from Facebook to Computer in 3 Ways

Although all the three methods will help you download Facebook videos using the video URL, each requires different preparations and works differently. Two of them need you to download the video downloader or extension, while one of them is online but will trouble you with ads or other unwanted issues. Choose the one you like best to save the Facebook video you like to your computer within minutes.

Method 1. Download Videos from Facebook to Computer with a Facebook Video Downloader

Guarantee: 100% Free, No Ads, No Plugins

EaseUS MobiMover, known as an iOS data transfer tool, also serves the function of a video downloader that will help you download videos from sites like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Vimeo, and more to your computer (PC/Mac/Laptop) or mobile devices (iPhone/iPad) using the video URL.

Unlike downloading YouTube videos in which you can copy the video URL directly from the address bar, you need to click "Show video URL" to obtain the URL of the video. Here are the details:

Step 1. Go to Facebook and log in with your account.

Step 2. Find and right-click the Facebook video you want to download and click "Show video URL".

Step 3. Copy the URL.

Now you are only three steps away from getting the video onto your computer.

To download a video from Facebook to computer:

Step 1. Launch the MobiMover. After that, go to "Video Downloader" and set to download Facebook videos to your computer.

Now you have downloaded the video you like from Facebook to your computer, you can edit the video, convert the video to audio, or do any other things as you like.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad, you can also download videos from Facebook to your iOS device for offline watching. What's more, this tool will help a lot when you need to transfer data between two iOS devices or between an iOS device and a computer. Sounds great? Don't miss this versatile tool.

Method 2. Save a Video from Facebook to Computer with Online Service

Don't want to download and install any software? If so, you may prefer to download videos from Facebook to computer using an online video downloader. With the online service, you can save the video via a web browser like Google Chrome without downloading any app. There are many online video downloaders and it's common that you will encounter some unexpected issues while using these tools. For example, you may be redirected to another shopping site, be troubled by an ad that keeps popping up, and more.

After some searches and trials, I recommend you try Getfvid, an online Facebook video downloader that will help you download videos from Facebook. It won't redirect you to another website or present you with lots of ads. Thus, I think it's the best among the online services I tried.

Follow the steps below to save a video from Facebook to your computer.

Step 1. Go to Facebook and log in with your account.

Step 2. Find and right-click the Facebook video you want to download and click "Show video URL".

Step 3. Copy the URL and go to visit the website https://www.getfvid.com/.

Step 4. Paste the URL in the address bar and click the "Download" button.

Step 5. Depending on the original quality of the video, you will see different video download options, like "Download in HD Quality" and "Download in Normal Quality". Besides, you can choose to convert the video to audio by clicking "Convert to MP3".

Step 6. Select an option to save the video from Facebook to your computer.

Step 7. When it has done, the saved video file would be stored in the "Downloads" folder on your PC. You can go to check and watch it as you want.

Method 3. Save Facebook Videos to Computer with Browser Extension

Like downloading YouTube videos to a laptop, you can also save a video from Facebook to computer using a browser extension. By adding the video download extension to your browser, there will be a "Download" button available when you watch a video on Facebook. 

Similar to online video download services, there are many related extensions. The online tool GetFvid introduced above also provides a Facebook video download extension for you. But here I'd like to recommend a very convenient tool called Video Downloader for Facebook.

Here is how it works to save a video from Facebook to your computer:

Step 1. Search for Video Downloader for Facebook in Google and click the search result to enter Chrome Web Store.

Step 2. Download and install the extension to your browser and restart it.

Step 3. Go to Facebook and play the video you want to save to your computer.

Step 4. Hover over the video and you will see the "Download" button. Click it to save the Facebook video to your computer.

The video will be saved as its original format and quality. Thus, there are no other options for you to choose from.

The Bottom Line

Don't know which one to choose? For your information:

EaseUS MobiMover is a comprehensive tool that is more than a video downloader for PC or Mac. In addition to Facebook, it also supports video download from other sites like Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo, Metacafe, and more. Besides, other than the video download feature, it's also equipped with data transfer and management features for iOS devices, which will bring you much convenience if you are an iPhone/iPad user.

Getfvid is an online tool. With it, you can download videos from Facebook to computer without installing any program. However, you can only get videos from Facebook with it. That means you will need to find another tool if you want to save videos from other sites.

Similar to Getfvid, the browser extension is only compatible with Facebook. You need to switch to another tool if you attempt to save a video from another site.

The last distinction between EaseUS MobiMover and the other two tools is that the former allows you to save videos to mobile devices while the latter not.

With the information in mind, now you can make a better choice for yourself. Apply one of them to start downloading the video you like from Facebook to your computer immediately.
