On my previous post I showed you DownFacebook, a website that lets you download Facebook videos easily. However, since it cannot download videos that are set to “private”, it’s just useless most of the time so I decided to look for other tools that can download any Facebook videos whether it’s set to public or private and luckily, I found some Firefox add-ons that can do that!
If you’re using Firefox and you want to download some Facebook videos, check out these add-ons that will make downloading Facebook videos as easy as pie!
1. Facebook Video
Facebook Video is a very nice add-on that do not add any clutter to your browser. It just adds some links below the Facebook video like Download and Convert Video.
On other videos, you’re going to see more features like Customize code and Embed this video. I’m not sure why but maybe because these videos are set to public.
If you want to download the video, just click Download Video. If you want to convert the video to other format before downloading it, click Convert Video. You’ll be then transferred to Zamzar.com. Choose the format you want to convert to and enter your email address to receive the download link.
If you want to embed the video on your website or blog, just click the Embed this Video link. You can also customize the video before embedding it by clicking Customize Code.
Note: I think there’s a bug with these two links (Embed and Customize) because whenever I’m clicking it, it disappears immediately that’s why I cannot copy/customize the code.
2. Flash and Video
Flash and Video is another awesome Firefox add-on that doesn’t only download videos from bunch of sites like YouTube, Facebook, Google Video, Dailymotion, Metacafe, and so on, it also allows you to download Flash games from websites gamespot.com, zoopgames.com, armorgames.com, bgames.com, gamesvine.com, flashgames247.com and other popular flash download websites.
Just like Facebook Video, it doesn’t add too much clutter on your browser because it only adds a tiny icon on your status bar. By default, the icon’s color is grey, but when it finds a video or Flash, it will turn to color blue.
To download a Facebook video, just play the video first and when it started playing, you’ll see another icon beside it. Just click that new icon and choose Facebook video.
3. Boost for Facebook
If you’re a certified Facebook addict and you want to improve your Facebook experience, Boost Facebook is for you. Aside from video downloader, it also adds more and better features like rollover pictures, selectable options, one-click pokes, hundred of skins to choose from, and many more!
To download any Facebook video, simply click the Download this video link below the video and the download will start immediately.
4. Download YouTube Videos +
Download YouTube Videos + allows you to download videos from different sites like YouTube, Facebook, and other popular video sharing sites. This addon is nice however, it will add another toolbar to your browser which is a bit annoying. The toolbar includes a search bar, save video link, screenshot (useful if you want to take screenshots of webpages or videos), translate button, Stumbleupon, and Facebook button.
To download a Facebook video, just play the video first and when it started playing, the “Save Video” link will become animated. Click it and download the Facebook video.
5. Keep Tube
Keep Tube is a popular Firefox add-on that allows you to download videos from bunch of sites like YouTube, Dailymotion, MySpace, Facebook, and many more. When you’re watching a video from any of the supported websites of Keep Tube, just click the icon on your status bar to download the video. Once you click it, you’ll be transferred to the Keep Tube website where you can download the video file.
