Lots of people share useful videos with their friends and families at Facebook. Whenever I found something useful and felt like sharing it at my blog I always wished if there was a way to embed it till Firefox based plug in came to play called “Facebook Videos“.

The plug in lets you embed, convert and download all kind of Facebook videos through Firefox. However, I believe that more than 65 % of internet users do not use Firefox. So, I decided to look into the plug in and see what it does so we may devise a manual way to embed and download videos for all other users.

Let’s take some Facebook video link in consideration

http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=224444830166&oid=35981458389

Now if you try to look at the link you will see a video ID separated by some other ID through ampersand sign (&)

http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=224444830166&oid=35981458389

This video ID separates each video of the Facebook from another. All you have to do is put this ID after the following link:

http://www.facebook.com/v/224444830166/

Now, you can simply embed this link from your WordPress post panel like you embed Youtube videos.

If you need to know the complete embedding code which you may directly paste into the HTML then that is given below:

<object classid=”clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000″ width=”425″ height=”375″ codebase=”http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0“><param name=”src” value=”http://www.facebook.com/v/224444830166/” /><embed type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”425″ height=”375″ src=”http://www.facebook.com/v/224444830166/“></embed></object>

Just replace the red code with the link you will be creating. Now, that was simple wasn’t it?

Update: Download Facebook videos in any browswer through IDM
