Download Facebook Videos In Google Chrome

Wonder how you can download Facebook videos when you are addicted to Google Chrome? Yes you can easily download Facebook videos from Google Chrome's cache once they are completely streamed. Accessing Google Chrome cache is not that easy. So you have to download ChromeCacheView, a freeware software which enables you to access and download files from Google Chrome's cache.

Facebook Video In Google Chrome
Once Google Chrome is installed, just download ChromeCacheView. ChromeCacheView requires no installation as its portable. Now go to Facebook and watch / stream any video. Now open ChromeCacheView.exe and it will display you with the list of all files present in the cache. If ChromeCacheView.EXE is already running then click the Refresh button in the toolbar. Now sort the list according to Content Type and look for MP4 file. Select it and press Ctrl+S or simply navigate to File->Save Selected Items. Ur done! Enjoy the Facebook video in MP4 format!

You can follow the same procedure to download any video you view on Google Chrome like YouTube Videos, MegaVideo Videos etc. We have already shared number to tools to access cache of different web-browsers. You may also like to view other Google Chrome tips and tricks for Facebook here.

    I’ve downloaded chromecacheview but actually I can’t find in it’s list the video I’ve watch so what can I do?

    Thanks for pointing out that we should choose “Copy Selected Cache Files…” instead of to File/Save. It worked when I tried to download a video from Facebook, but not when I tried to download from YouTube.

    And that’s it! Thanks so much! This line above should appear in the description by default, not in the commenst if I may ask, for the sake of others luck.
    Thank you again.

    Hey, I want to really express how thankful I am for your article!

    However, I did find that this only worked with selecting “Copy to…” from file menu, as mentioned in another comment.

    I know this is an older article, but please consider fixing it! :)

    Sorry, but it didn’t work. when i tried to save the file it was saved in text file format. so i think it you should have some solution for it.

      I had the same problem as well, then I found that if you double click the file it shows you the link of the video, copy and paste to your google chrome, then you’ll have a new window with the video. Right click the video and you’ll be able to download it.

    Hi…i’m following this method but when it searches for cache and just find 18 results. So there’s any time limit for when i watched that video before? thx

      It will display all FLV files in your cache. You must stream a full video in your browser before using this software. I don’t think partially streamed videos will be there in your browser cache.

    how to save it ?

      Wolverine11 years, 3 months ago

      Its because you are not using the proper video codec :P

    Recep Hilmi Tufan11 years, 4 months ago

    It’s not working for me. It saves as .txt not as mp4.

      Wolverine11 years, 3 months ago

      Well Recep, if you want to save a file by using ChromeCacheView then first you should select the file by clicking on it and then choose “Copy Selected Cache Files To…” from the file menu. Another way is to select the file you want to save and hit F4 key on your keyboard!

        That solved my problem too. Awesome, thanks!

        Rob11 years, 1 month ago

        Also, if you select your file then hit f6 or select “Open link in web browser” CCV will save the file in its proper format in your download folder and show it in the download bar at the bottom of Chrome.

          Thanx man F6 solved everything. Amazing stuff .
