How to Download Facebook videos

Last Updated: January 4, 2022

Some of the top social media sites available to us today like Facebook make it difficult to download content. The reason for this is typically due to copyright and revenue purposes as they don't want you to take possession of shared videos or images, but instead they prefer you share them on your feed so that others might see them and so that the posters can continue getting paid through advertisements. But if you're looking for a permanent copy of a video or image that you shared over one of these popular social media platforms, then there could also be another motive behind your choice.

Downloading Facebook videos is not as easy as it seems. Although there's a button next to clips on the website that says 'Save video' all this does is add the video to your 'saved video' bookmarks to watch later on Facebook. That's not ideal if you need to share personal videos with friends and family who don’t have a Facebook account, or you just want access to a video to watch offline.

Most tools available today to save Facebook videos can't help you because they don't focus on the quality of the videos that they're saving for you. This is not the case with YeetDL. Using this service, you will be able to download Facebook videos in their maximum quality. We’ll show you how!

Questions about Facebook Video Downloading

Still, do you have any questions? Here's our FAQ section to help you get started!

Can I download Facebook Videos to my mobile phone with YeetDL?

Not directly. Since YeetDL only works on Windows devices (other platforms coming soon!) you will have to upload your videos to your mobile phone via a USB cable or, alternatively, via Cloud Storage by using Google Drive, Dropbox or similar, which is what most of our users do for YouTube Videos and Playlists.

Can I download live streaming videos from Facebook?

Yes!! 😍 The caveat is that you cannot download them while they're live. So, enjoy the live stream while it is still being broadcasted, and after it has finished just copy the URL and download it via YeetDL! We also support live stream downloading from YouTube!

Can I download private videos from Facebook?

Unfortunately we don't support it at this time. 😕 This is because we still haven't implemented Facebook account integration within YeetDL. Once we do it this will be easily supported!

Can I convert Facebook videos to MP3 or other audio formats?

Of course. Just like we support converting YouTube videos to MP3! We also support other formats such as AAC, M4A and OGG.

Which video resolutions are supported by YeetDL Facebook Video Downloader?

We do not limit video resolutions. This means that, as long as the video uploader makes it available in a high resolution such as 4K, 2K, Full HD, etc., you'll be able to download it. In other words, YeetDL will allow you to download the videos in the highest quality possible!

Are there any limits on the number of videos I can download?

Absolutely NOT! Download as many videos as you want and enjoy! The sky is the limit 🚀🚀
