How can I show a video clip in an instructable when the clip resides on Facebook? Answered

The original video is gone in a computer crash but we still have the 25 second clip on the unpublished instructable Author's Facebook page and on mine (collaborator)


The forums are retiring in 2021 and are now closed for new topics and comments.

You have a few different options...

First off, and by far the easiest, you can just figure out the embed code for your video.  Here is a how to.

Other options- google "download video from facebook". That will get you several results of websites and programs that can convert the flash file to something more usable for you like this one.  I haven't tried any of them, but do a little research before using one to make sure it's not just spam.

Option three- you could use screen capture software to directly record what plays on your screen.  For OS X, a program I use is called iShowU.

Final option- recover the original file from either the camera or your computer using recovery software.  For PC, I suggest PC Inspector Smart Recovery.
