Have you ever wanted to download and save a video from Facebook to watch it later? For those who have ever tried to download a video from Facebook on their android devices, it’s actually impossible to do so in the app.
Facebook’s decision to allow users to upload and share video was a great decision, however like every other video sharing services available right now, Facebook also doesn’t allow its users to download the videos uploaded and shared on its social network.
The restriction is imposed upon all the platforms on which Facebook is available. However on a desktop, users can install third party browser extensions to easily get the ability to download and save the videos from Facebook.
The same thing also applies for the Facebook for android app. But when you look out of the app, you can find many third party apps on the Google play store that can enable you to download YouTube videos and save them for viewing later.
MyVideoDownloader for Facebook is one such apps that works flawlessly for downloading videos from Facebook on a Android device.
Before we start, I have a advice for you. Since this is a third party app, I wouldn’t recommend you to use this app primarily to browse Facebook on your Android device. So always use the official Facebook for android app to browse Facebook on your android device.
When you come across any video on facebook that you would want to save for viewing later. Just use facebook’s save feature to save that video in your saved list. You can then login into Facebook on the MyVideoDownloader app and load the video from your saved list, after than you can download it.
Here’s how you can use the MyVideoDownloader app to download videos from facebook on your Android device.
