Facebook Videos has grown quite fast over the past few months, it now serves more than 1 billion impression a month. Which if you ask me is quite impressive. We all know how to download YouTube videos, there are hundreds of tools for it but what if you want to download videos from Facebook?
Update: Facebook Video for FireFox has been disabled by FireFox addons manager. However, you can use Download Flash & Video to quickly download Facebook videos.
If you are using Firefox browser then there is a terrific add-on for it called Facebook Video. It adds four options under every video – Download Video, Convert Video, Embed Video, and Customize Code option.

Clicking the Download Video will start downloading the video instantly in MP4 format. For converting a video it uses an online service called Zamzar. During my testing on Firefox 3.5.2, Embed This Video option didn’t work, others were working fine though. You can try it out and let me know if it works fine on your side.
It was originally developed as a GreaseMonkey script but to make it further easy for users(to install), the developer has converted it into an add-on.
