How to download a Facebook Live Video

Facebook did it again!

With its new and powerful feature, Facebook has made communication more fun and engaging for users. The live video action allows individuals from across the globe, to share their real-time activities and routines to their followers. Comments feed works while broadcast is going on, while viewers can share their sentiments too!

Now, perhaps some of you want to have a copy of the video – for repurposing maybe? Well we got you covered! Here are two easy ways on how you can download your Facebook Live Video.


Download From Facebook

Good thing, Facebook has integrated a download option for its live video feature. Unlike the normal videos shared on the platform, with the new tool, you can directly download the Facebook video file in just few clicks! However, this is only possible if you are the one who posted the video. Check out the steps below:


1. Look for the video you want to download in your page.

2. Once you find the video, click the time stamp below your name. The video will pop up, alongside the comments section. See the photos below:
