If you have got an Android handset and an active user of Facebook, you must have wondered about ways to download Facebook videos that appears on your wall and you instantly start liking it. For downloading Facebook videos on Android, there are few pre-requisite and before telling those, let me tell you there are two ways for downloading Facebook videos:

1. Using Facebook Application (Inefficient Way)
2. Using Facebook on inbuilt (chrome) browser of android

The pre-requisite are:

  • Download and install Opera Mobile
  • Download any other video player like QQ player or MX Video player

Ok, so before starting, go to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > Select ALL tab above > Internet > Clear Defaults

But i personally don’t like this way (downloading video from Opera mobile), since if you experience any disturbance in Internet connection, video download doesn’t get resumed. And opera downloader is very bad downloading things.

Step 2:

Open inbuilt (chrome) browser of Android, open Facebook and search for any Facebook video which you want to download. Click on it and it will show you option of opening videos via installed browsers.

In my case i had installed Opera Mini & Opera Mobile both. Choose Internet and then again it would show you option to Choose via Android System or Internet (Insert screenshot 7).
