Since Facebook released the video streaming feature in 2017, we have developed a new interest to share things around us via FB videos. With Facebook app installed in smartphones, it can't be more convenient to record live videos and share them immediately.

[Online] 2 Best Free Ways to Download a Facebook Video to MP4 In a Browser

#1 FBDOWNLOAD - FBDOWNLOAD is a self-explained Facebook to MP4 video downloader online.

Open it in a browser, you will know how to download a Facebook video. Once you paste a Facebook video URL to the blanket, it will offer you 7 MP4 video download options along with an audio-only MP4 file. The options themselves are self-explained, from which you see different resolution videos. All 8 download options are workable and correct.

Regarding the analysis & conversion speed, FBDOWNLOAD is in mid-level. While for an average PC user, it’s among the first choices as it’s result-driven and well performed.

# 2 FBDOWN - An anonymous Facebook video downloader. Liked by 18k Facebook users, reputation precedes FBDOWN.

When using it to convert Facebook video to mp4, you just need to copy and paste the URL of a Facebook video, then hit [Download].

For Chrome users, saving Facebook video online requires one more step to save the playing video manually. Or, you can utilize its Chrome Extension, which is an additional add-on for Facebook video conversion. It defaults to convert Facebook video to MP4, offering 3 download options – normal quality, HD quality and video with no audio.

FBDOWN is also a private Facebook video downloader, allowing you to capture Facebook videos tagging "Only me", "Friends" and others except for "Public".

While we find two bugs:

1) When we test FBDOWN in Chrome browser online (without installing its Plugin), the option of "video with no audio" downloads no correct MP4 video.

2) "normal quality" downsizes the original video if Facebook video is not in a square size, and only "HD quality" renders high fidelity MP4 video.

#3 Other 6 Free Ways to Download Facebook Videos Online, Performing the Same Function like FBDOWN.

When testing, we find that FBDOWN shares the same kernel/core of a Facebook downloader with GETFVID, IOTRANSFER, GETFBSTUFF, SAVEFROM, KEEPOFFLINE, FILEVID. Since these online free Facebook video downloaders use the same kernel with no exceptional functions, we decide to pass their reviews.

[Windows] 2 Best Free Ways to Rip Video from Facebook with Windows Software

Plus Perks: For those who like other download Facebook videos to other video formats, like M4V, MOV, AVI, FLV, H265 for MP4, etc., or convert Facebook videos to iPhone Plus, Apple TV, Samsung smartphone videos, WonderFox Free HD Video Converter is a recommended application to grab Facebook videos offline to HD portable videos for free.

Two Downsides:

1) It's a bit slower than the above online Facebook downloaders because of using an optimized algorithm that compromises the speed to achieve a higher quality (Its video quality is the best!).

2) Regarding Facebook video conversion, almost half conversion options (for example, 4K conversion, 1080P conversion, etc.) require an upgrade to its Pro version.

Anyway, among 100%-free YouTube to MP4 downloaders, it's the most resourceful & powerful performer without question. And it won't help download private Facebook videos.
