Great video Anna, I also looked at Google hangouts on air, because it goes directly to Youtube.

p.s headsup! when I watched it the audio was a little out of sync.

Cheers 🙂

I have been using the steps successfully for several months – thanks for sharing.

This week that right click option in the m. page has disappeared. Any suggestions on how to download FB lives now?

I followed the instructions and was not able to right click on the video to save it. I was able to do it last week, but not this week. Has anyone else had this problem? Did Facebook disable this?

Any updates on this post? It’s not currently letting me save it as anything other than a website?

Nothing happens at all when I right click the playing video after deleted the “www” and adding the “m”…

There is no download as option. Save as simply creates a link to the video.
