I see many people are using Facebook Live videos as part of their marketing strategy. But I’ve also noticed that after the broadcast  these videos are lost somewhere in Facebook world. It doesn’t have to be like that. You can first of all, save your video to your computer and then you should upload it to a video host, such as YouTube, Vimeo or Wistia.

Here are the steps to save your video

1.     Login to Facebook and find the video you want to save

2.     Right-click on the video and choose  Show video URL

3.     A small window should pop-up, with the video URL. Press Ctrl+C on your keyboard to copy the URL

4.     In the browser’s address bar, press Ctrl+V to paste the video URL

5.     Change the video URL, changing the “www” at the beginning of the URL to “m”. The URL should now start with https://m.facebook.com/

6.     Once changed, press enter to open the mobile version of the page and follow the steps below, depending on which  browser you use

Edge browser

1.     Click the Play icon on the video to start playing the video

2.     Right-click on the video and select  Save video as

3.     Choose a location on your computer where you want to save the video

Internet Explorer browser

1.     Click on the Play icon on the video to start playing the video in a new tab

2.     At the bottom of the Internet Explorer window, a pop-up message will appear, asking if you want to Open or Save the video. Click the down arrow next to the Save button and select the Save as option

3.     Choose a location on your computer where you want to save the video

Google Chrome browser & Firefox

1.     Click the Play icon on the video to start playing the video

2.     Right-click on the video and select the Save video as… option

3.     Choose a location on your computer where you want to save the video

Now all you have to do is upload your video from your computer to your video host. You will soon build up a library of video content that can be re-used in many ways.

Thank you to Computer Hope for the original tutorial

I take a great pride in all that I do and always over deliver. I have never been late delivering a project and haven’t gone off the radar when help is needed.

My goal is to make the process of planning, creating and managing a website as easy as possible for organisations and individual business owners.

I flourish in opening up the world of websites and technology so that those without any formal training in the field can enter and feel empowered. Helping people learn about digital marketing and developing their understanding further is paramount.
