How to download facebook video without special software?

Simple tutorial how to download facebook videos without install some special software for it.

* Chrome/Firefox Browser. For firefox you need to install FireBug.

* Ability in read, interpret and imagine(I'm not a good writer)

Lets try this video as a sample. Mocha Gurl - Umay Boy Part 2

1. Inspect the element

2. Find embed tag for the specific video.

3. Get/copy the value of flashvars attribute. Value normally start params=


4. The data is URL encoded and you need to decode in human readable data. For you to decode check URL Dencoder Tools

5. Find the sd_src, and copy the value. Important: You must understand JSON but, if you cant understand JSON just try to check and understand the image below.

In the image representation you can get the value.

6. Replace all \/ with a single slash only and your done.

NOTE: If you encounter error message
An error occurred while processing your request.
Reference #50.3d34d417.1413363911.56c6c7
from the Download URL(w/c the .mp4) I provide try to follow the step #1 to #6. This reason is like security from facebook from creating automated call/request. I just notice that the parameters value after question-mark(?) is change every user login.

Hope you able to follow that simple instruction.
