Today, I am going to show you how to download a Facebook live stream video so that you can use it again either on YouTube, Vimeo, or whatever purpose you have to recreate your content and re-purpose it.
What you are going to need to do is you are going to go to the video that you want to download, and you are going to click on it so that it plays. I am going to pause that there and then you right click on the video and you actually show video URL. Once you have this URL, you are going to open up in a new tab and you are going to paste the URL there.
You are going to see if I click enter, that video is there, but what I want to do is I want to remove the www and put an m. m.facebook.com. What that does is that it makes it think that you are on a mobile device. I am going to click enter here and you will see that it looks a little bit different now because it’s pretending like you are on a mobile screen. Then, we are going to play the video again so that I can get this going here.
Once I have played it a couple of seconds into the video, I am going to right click again on the video and now you will see that you can save video as. Once you have done so then it will pull up. You can type whatever you want, video Facebook groups. Whatever you want and it will save it as an mp4, and then you click save and you are good to go. Now you have the video down here, you can then upload it to YouTube, Vimeo, or again re-purpose it however you wish. Whether it’s on Facebook, again, for a different group or for your blogs or whatever the strategy is that you have when downloading this video.
