There are five different ways to save a video on Facebook, as outlined in this article. Of course, you could also use each method on your own.
First, you should never upload a video to YouTube. YouTube does not allow you to upload videos to YouTube, and Facebook does not allow you to upload videos from Facebook directly to your phone or computer or to your own website. The easiest way to save a video is to upload it to another video hosting site. The only problem with that method is that uploading a video to YouTube requires that you have a decent web connection and that the video file has been compressed and encoded appropriately.
Second, the easiest way to save a video is to upload it to a video sharing site. These sites work similarly to YouTube, but they allow users to upload videos, or video clips, to their websites. These websites also provide the option for uploading videos directly from the Facebook application, which can be done with a click of the mouse or a keyboard shortcut.
Third, the third method is by using a third-party program, such as QuickTime Player, to compress a video clip or video file to make it smaller and fit more easily into a small format like an MP3 or other similar file type. This tool is available at any video sharing website, and it usually costs you nothing to upload a video clip. If you do not want to use this program, or if you just want to try it out on your own, a simple Google search will produce several options that claim to give you the ability to save a video file on Facebook or a third-party website.
Fourth, the fifth and final method is by using the “Save to Facebook” function on the “Settings” menu for the “Upload” page of the Facebook application. You can save a video from Facebook by uploading it to the application, or by uploading it to a third-party website and then saving it to Facebook. You cannot upload a video to Facebook with this feature, however, and you cannot upload a video clip to Facebook from YouTube.
Regardless, of which method you choose, there are several things you should consider before you attempt to share any content from the internet, particularly the types of content found on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter. First, you should always save any files you upload to the internet to a trusted file sharing service, such as Dropbox, rather than placing them directly onto your computer or cell phone, and then saving it to the media storage service.
Also, you should never put a video clip on Facebook or a third-party website without first backing it up it first, in case something happens and you lose your data. And, last but not least, you should never upload a video directly from a third-party website to Facebook because Facebook’s terms of service prohibit you from uploading your own videos to Facebook.
By using one of these methods, you can save a video from Facebook or a third-party website to a media storage service without breaking Facebook’s Terms of Service. But, please keep in mind that doing this does not violate the service, because you have the choice to leave a video on Facebook.
Finally, even though Facebook’s terms of service allow you to upload videos, they also say that you cannot upload your own videos to the site, nor can you share videos with anyone on Facebook or anywhere else for that matter. So, you cannot simply upload a clip to Facebook and then share it with a friend, as you would with a normal file sharing service.
You may also find the process of using this method to be frustrating, because if you want to share the video clip on Facebook, you must first copy the media file to your computer first and then upload it to Facebook, before you can then share it with anyone else. This is why it is important to first back up your video, before you upload it.
As you can see, there are a few reasons why you should not post your own clip to Facebook and then just upload it to the media storage service. However, by following the tips above, you can safely save a video from Facebook to your computer or another third-party site. While it may seem difficult to watch your own media from a different service, the effort is worth it.
