In today’s digital age, video is one of the most powerful forms of communication and entertainment.
WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, is the go-to platform for many people to share videos with their friends and family.
Sometimes you may come across a video on Facebook that you would like to share on WhatsApp but don’t know how to do it.
We will walk you through manually sharing a Facebook video on WhatsApp. Then, you’ll see instructions on downloading a Facebook video and sharing it on WhatsApp.
We will also provide an alternative method for sharing a Facebook video link on WhatsApp.
You’ll have all the knowledge you need to easily share videos from Facebook to WhatsApp.
Step 1: Download the Facebook video
There are a few different techniques that you can use to download a video from Facebook, including using the Facebook app and browser extensions.
To download a video using the Facebook app, open the app and go to the video you want.
Once you have the video open, tap on the three dots in the top right corner of the video.
From there, you will see the option to “Save Video.” Tap on that option, and the video will be downloaded to your device.
Another way to download a video from Facebook is by using browser extensions.
Many browser extensions allow you to download videos from Facebook, such as “Facebook Video Downloader” and “Fast Video Downloader.” These extensions allow you to download the video directly from your browser.
Once the extension is installed, you will see a download button while watching videos on Facebook.
When you have downloaded the video, it will be saved on your device’s camera roll or gallery, and you can proceed to the next step of sharing the video on WhatsApp.
It’s against Facebook’s terms of service to download and share a video without proper authorization. Always have the right to share a video or download the content you are interested in.
The process for sharing a video on WhatsApp is relatively simple.
First, open the WhatsApp app and select the contact or group that you want to share the video with.
Once you have a chat open, tap on the “Attachment” icon, which is located at the bottom left corner of the screen.
From there, you will be presented with several options, including “Gallery,” “Video,” and “Document.” Select “Video” and find the video you downloaded from Facebook.
Once you have selected the video, it will automatically be attached to the message, and you can then add any additional text or emojis you would like.
When you’re ready, hit the send button, and the video will be shared with the selected contact or group on WhatsApp.
Let the recipient know that the video is from Facebook, in case they are not familiar with the source, and ask permission if they would like to share the video again.
WhatsApp allows uploading videos of up to 16 MB, and videos of more than 16 MB will be compressed automatically.
It may affect the quality of the video, and it’s better to share a video in the original quality, which is mostly in the range of 100 to 200 MB
If you don’t want to download the video, or if you want to share a video with a large number of contacts at once, you can share a link to the video on WhatsApp instead.
Here’s how to do it:
- Open the Facebook app or website and go to the video you want to share.
- Tap or click on the “Share” button located below the video.
- A menu will appear. Select “Copy Link” from the options.
- Open WhatsApp and go to the chat or group where you want to share the video.
- Paste the copied link into the chat by tapping and holding on to the text field, then selecting “Paste.”
- Once you have pasted the link, send the message as you would normally.
- The recipient will be able to see the video with a preview and will be able to click on the link to view the video on the Facebook website.
The recipient will not have to download the video, and will be streamed directly from Facebook.
This means that the quality of the video may be affected if the recipient has a slow internet connection.
You can save bandwidth usage since you don’t need to upload the full video on WhatsApp.
Sharing a Facebook video on WhatsApp is a simple process that can be done in two ways: manually downloading the video and then sending it on WhatsApp or by sharing a link to the video on WhatsApp.
You should have no problem sharing videos from Facebook to WhatsApp. You can use the alternative method of sharing the video link on WhatsApp to save your device’s storage and share the video in large groups at once.
Be authorized to share the video, as doing so without permission may be against Facebook’s terms of service.
