Do you want to know how to download a Facebook video in HD quality? As you know, there is no direct option or feature to download videos off Facebook. So, what we can do to download Facebook videos in their original quality without using any software?

Well, I have showed you before in a previous post and in some YouTube tutorials how to download a Facebook video using only the mobile version of Facebook, but the downloaded quality isn't as good as the original one. That's why in this tutorial I will share with you another workaround that will let you download Facebook videos in high quality without the need of installing any third party software or any online tool.
