Method 2: Use MyMedia To Download Facebook Videos on your iPhone
This method is for those of you who want to download the videos to their device to watch when offline and without any network interruption. While YouTube has an offline mode option available now, downloading videos from Facebook directly is not possible. Therefore, you will need a third-party app to aid you with this. If you want to access your favorite videos any time, even without an Internet connection,

6. Under the Saved Video section, tap on the three-dot menu next to your video and select Copy link.
Note: You can also get the video link by tapping on the ‘Share’ option then select ‘Copy link’. But the link copied with this step doesn’t seem to work with the video downloader.
7. The link to the video will be copied to your clipboard.
8. Now, open the MyMedia app. Ensure that you are in the ‘Browser’ tab, which basically is the app’s inbuilt web browser.
9. Go to one of the following websites from the browser:
10. In the ‘Enter the URL’ textbox, paste the copied link of the video. Tap and hold the textbox and select ‘Paste’ to do so.
11. Tap on the ‘Download’ or ‘Go’ button.
12. Now, you may get an option to download the video in normal or HD quality. Tap on your preferred quality.
13. Again tap on “Download the file” pop-up.
14. Now enter the name with which you want to save the video on your device.
15. Tap on ‘Save’ or ‘Download’ and the video will start downloading.
16. Once the download is finished, switch to the ‘Media’ tab at the bottom of the screen.
17. Your downloaded video will be available here.
18. You can watch the video in the app itself or download it to your ‘Camera Roll’. For the latter, tap on the desired video and select ‘Save to Camera Roll’.
