When you surf Facebook, you find a favorite video and want to save a copy? Facebook provides an easy way: You can add this video to the "saved video." You'll easily find it from the "saved video" list when you want to watch it again next time.
But you should understand that "saved video" on Facebook does not mean direct storage to your local device. It only adds to an online list. If you want to keep the copy on the local, the only way is to download it.
Unfortunately, Facebook had disabled the video download option since the year 2016. Therefore, you need a Facebook downloader to get the original video and watch offline at any time.

4 The video will play in a new window, then click the ellipsis (three dots icon) vertically aligned"⋮" at the right of the player bottom. In the popup window, select "download."
No matter where you access the video, play the video, the share button is at the right bottom corner or the top right. If there's only like and comment options, but no share button, it means the video is not public. The author has set privacy to friends only. You can't download this type of post by the downloader.

Yes. But to download any Facebook live streaming, you should wait until the streaming finish, and then put the live video link to the Facebook video downloader. You'll get the download link.
You can directly click the download button. But, highly recommend using IDM(Internet Download Manager) or other download managers because the live video is often huge.
To clarify this problem, we must first understand the range of HD and SD resolution. We only take horizontal video as an example.
As we know, standard definition res is from 240p to 480p. And HD starts at 720p and ends at 1080p. 1080p is also called full HD. All videos uploaded to Facebook have a quality option when you play.
You can find the video quality option on the Facebook video player. At the bottom of the player, click the gear icon at the left of the enlarge icon. There's the quality setting option; click it, you'll see a list of available resolution.
Commonly, if both SD and HD videos exist, the Facebook downloader will extract 1280 x 720p as HD and 400X 224 as SD.
As we mentioned before，the SD video resolution starts at 240p and ends at 480p. If there's no higher resolution than 480p in the video quality options, that means the original video has no HD version. Therefore you can't download HD video by the downloader, also other software.
Of course. Facebook Lite is the lightweight version of the Facebook main app. It uses far lesser data and is optimized for slow internet speed and works perfectly on smartphones with low ram or storage space.
Facebook Lite has the main feature of the regular Facebook app, include videos. When we copy a video link from Facebook Lite, find out it's the same as Facebook. So we can download videos use this downloader to download it.
Sometimes, you download a video, but finding the video quality is low when you playback. It may be caused by the original video has no HD version. You should go to Facebook to check if the 720P or 1080p exist.
Sometimes you downloaded an HD video, but it is still blurry when playing. It is very possible that you downloaded a fake HD video. The author enlarges the low quality video to 1080p or 720p when uploading the video, but the video clarity has not changed.
