Save Videos from Facebook to a PC with Movavi Screen Capture

8th February 2017

People spend a lot of time on Facebook nowadays, and most of the content that they tend to gravitate towards consists of videos. Aside from personal videos shared by friends and family, there is also a lot of other content ranging from helpful and informative guides, funny videos, or even music and news.

Odds are you tend to watch your fair share of videos on Facebook, and you may even have some favorites that you watch multiple times over. Rather than loading them up each time and streaming them, what if you could save them on your PC so that you could watch them without having to be online?

Of course Facebook itself doesn’t let you ‘save’ or ‘download’ videos, which is why you will need Movavi Screen Capture to make it happen. It is a simple yet versatile screen recorder that you can use to capture any Facebook video from your screen.

Rest assured it isn’t complicated to use Movavi Screen Capture to capture Facebook videos. In fact you just need to:

  1. Launch Movavi Screen Capture and select ‘Record screen’ in the menu.
  2. Click and drag the cursor to draw a frame over the Facebook video that you want to record.
  3. Make sure the ‘System Audio’ icon is highlighted in green, or click it once if not.
  4. Press the ‘REC’ button to start recording after a 5 second delay, and play the video at the same time.
  5. Press the ‘Stop’ button when the video finishes, and click ‘Save as’ to save it.

Sometimes you may mistime the start (or end) of the recording and end up recording excess footage that you don’t need. If so Movavi Screen Capture will let you trim out those parts before you save the video.

On top of that you can also alter some of the other recording parameters in Movavi Screen Capture to suit your needs. It will give you control over the capture area, frame rate, audio source, and even let you record keyboard and mouse actions or schedule a time to automatically start and stop the recording.

As you may be starting to realize it is worth exploring the features in Movavi Screen Capture. Because of how intuitive it is you will only need a few minutes to do so, and will be able to see firsthand how simple it makes it to save Facebook videos on a PC.
