Download Facebook Videos – Free Browser Trick – Chrome Firefox Safari

Download Facebook Videos - How To - Free - Step 1

Here is a simple trick to download Facebook videos. I have tested this browser trick using Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer and it works on all. There is no need for software downloads, browser plugins or any complicated tutorials explaining how to download Facebook videos, this browser trick is done in 3 simple steps. Lets gets started…

Download Facebook Videos

Step 1 – Click on and start watching the video link you want to download from Facebook.

You will have to login to your Facebook account first, even if the video you want to download is public.

Typically Facebook video links look similar to these:

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=123456789012&set=vb.809459235&type=3&theater
https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=123456789012
http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=123456789012&set=vb.809459235&type=3&permPage=1

It doesn’t matter which type of link (long or short) you see in your browsers address bar because we are going to make a very simple change to the start of the URL  What I want you to do is change or replace the letters www to m so that any of the Facebook video links start with https://m.facebook.com/ or a good example is

https://m.facebook.com/photo.php?v=123456789012&set=vb.809459235&type=3&theater

(notice the m at the start instead of www).

Now with the new video URL changed simply hit return on your keyboard or click go. This will take us to Step 2

Step 2 – Right-click and choose your “Save As” method on the Facebook mobile video page.

With the video now loaded in your browser you should be seeing a mobile version of Facebook. I want you to right-click in the area around the video and choose “Save As” or “Save link as” etc. Do not right-click on the video picture thumbnail as this will only allow you to save the video still image. I have found the easiest way is to right click on the video title and choose “Save As” etc. Refer to the image below – Green area is good, Red area is not good.

You can rename it or save it as is. Your Facebook video is now saved to your computer.

Faster Grooveshark Search Add-on for Firefox (auto-suggest feature)

Grooveshark Audio I coded this firefox add-on to query the Grooveshark search site much quicker than their standard search tool add-on.

Grooveshark currently provide a useful search add-on, it installs Grooveshark search to your current list of search engines within Firefox. By searching for an artist or song you are directed to the Grooveshark website and results are displayed.

I re-coded their XML install file to include a live suggest feature pulling related words as you type from Yahoo to speed up your search query.

Examples:

1. The below image shows the default Grooveshark add-on, you have to type in the artist and song title and then click on the magnify button to complete a search:

grooveshark-auto-suggest-firefox-search-1

2. And here is my improved version in action, as you type you will be prompted with relevant words speeding up your search, no need to click on magnify button. Just type, select, go.

grooveshark-auto-suggest-firefox-search-2

Try It Out:

If you haven’t installed the Grooveshark search add-on for Firefox please try my version:
Firefox SkreemR Search Add-on Auto Suggest“Click here to install Firefox Grooveshark auto suggest search add-on”

Note* I would prefer you install it via my Firefox Official Plugin page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/14319 this allow me to track downloads, installs and reviews etc.

How to uninstall:

To uninstall the add-on just select “Manage Search Engines” from your drop down list then select and remove it.

Hope it improves your search speed on Grooveshark

Note: This add-on will install to “Microsoft Internet Explorer” browser but the auto suggest feature is disabled.

What is Grooveshark ?

Grooveshark is a Rich Internet Application, (RIA) written in ActionScript using the Adobe Flex framework which runs in Adobe Flash. Its design implements various sliding panels to categorize and display lists of information, similar in style to that of the Apple iPhone. A right-aligned black modal window also slides in to display more information for songs, playlists, and users.

Grooveshark also lets users upload music to their online music library through a Java Web Start application. The upload program scans folders specified for mp3’s, uploading and adding them to the user’s online library on the service. The ID3 information of the uploaded song is linked to the user and the file is uploaded to Grooveshark which allows on-demand music playback. Collectively, each user’s uploaded library is available to any user of Grooveshark. All content on the service is user-sourced.

The website also allows users to upload music files on their hard drive to the search database, resulting in constant growth of its library.

Backup, Backup, Backup!

My Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop recently was me giving trouble where by it started to hang for no apparent reason. One minute I’d be working away contently with very few applications running, next “Bang!” it would freeze with a constant (Vista) spinning icon and a screen that turned opaque white. Nothing I could do to rectify it only to wait… and wait… and wait… by running Windows Task Manager I noticed the CPU Usage was running at a near constant 90% all the time which was pretty high. I tried all sorts of tips from registry defrag to killing unnecessary startup processes even being suspect of Firefox sucking up resources but no luck to be had.

It finally ground to a halt and would not boot up so with the laptop still in warranty I called Dell to arrange a repair, strangely enough they sent out a repair tech a few days later who discovered the problem was a screwed up motherboard which was replaced. It was also recommended that I format my hard drive and re-install Windows (Bloody) Vista. At this point I decided to back up my laptop data to an external hard drive via USB. I left it transferring all files overnight and presumed all was ok with no error messages that anything went wrong with the transfer, having backed up I was happy to prepare for formatting the drive and re-installing.

Dell arranged a phone call and a talk through of the reinstall. All went well and at last the laptop is back to peak performance so tonight it was time to hook up my external drive and transfer my stuff back . BUMP! nothing there! yes there was a c: drive backed up with full windows directory etc. but no “My Music” – “My Videos” and worst of all no “My Pictures” aaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!

No pictures!!!  over a years worth of photos… nowhere to be found. Family snaps, birthdays, events, creative pics… all gone… thank f**k I had uploaded a few of those pics to my flickr account…. and all for the sake of a couple of backup DVD’s!

Lesson learned? shit happens… (note to self)  from now on always check an test your Back Up, Back Up, Back Up!
