While using Facebook, I often come across funny videos shared by my friends. To ensure I’m able to catch up with those great clips at my own convenient time– even without the Internet, I make sure to save them. Since the process of downloading Facebook videos on iPhone and iPad was a bit complex, I had been craving for a more straightforward way to get it done. And guess what? Thanks to a handy app named “MyMedia,” saving Facebook videos on the iOS device has now become a tad easier than ever before!
I’ve been using this file manager app to not just take control of files but also download the clips that catch my eyes. If you are like me, jump over to start expanding your huge library of hilarious videos.
How to Download Facebook Videos on iOS Device
Step #1. First and foremost, download MyMedia on your iOS device. It’s available for free and requires iOS 9 or later.
Step #2. Now, launch Facebook on your iOS device and head over to the video you wish to download. Next, tap on the Share button and select Copy Link.
Step #3. Next up, launch MyMedia app and make sure Browser tab is selected, if it’s not already. Next, head over to fbdown.net using the built-in browser.
Step #4. Next up, you need to paste the link of the video. (to do so, touch and hold in the text field and tap on Paste.) Then, tap on the Download button.
Step #5. Up next, you have two options:
- Download Video in Normal Quality
- Download Video in HD Quality
Pick the preferred video quality to start downloading the clip. (Go for the normal quality, if you want to manage the storage smartly.)
Step #6. I’m going to select the Normal Quality → Tap on Download the File to confirm.
Step #7. Now, enter the name of the file and tap on Save.
Step #8. Once the video has been downloaded, tap on Back at the top right → Next, tap on Media tab at the bottom.
Step #9. Tap on the video name and select Save to Camera Roll in the menu Tap on OK while the app asks for permission.
That’s all there is to it!
You have successfully downloaded and saved Facebook videos to your Camera Roll. Now, you can head to the Photos app ⟶ Albums tab ⟶ Videos folder to check out your clip.
