How many of the times, you encounter a video uploaded on Facebook, and you need to download it to share with your friends on WhatsApp or for watching later?
That too, if you browsing Facebook in the mobile app, there’s no way to download videos that you come across on Facebook. If you have jailbroken iOS device, you can add a download button within Facebook app, so that you find it easy to download Facebook videos as you come across them within the Facebook App.
How cool is that?
Already I’ve covered about YouTube downloader Cydia app, but in this post I’m gonna show you how to download Facebook videos directly within the app on your iPhone or iPad that is jailbroken.
Install Prenesi Tweak
To accomplish this task, there’s a tweak called Prenesi in Cydia. You need to install the tweak.
Along with offering you a download button to download Facebook videos directly from the app, this tweak also provides you various other features.
- Most recent feed feature for chronologically arranging news feed stories.
- Disable the reactions feature within the app, that Facebook introduced recently.
- After hitting the like or unlike button, it asks you for confirmation.
- Enable Facebook’s internal employee settings.
- Disable VOIP for saving battery life, for which Facebook app is criticized for.
For latest versions of iOS 8 and iOS 9, the Prenesi tweak is renamed as Prenesi 3. This tweak is freely available on BigBoss repo. Just search for the tweak using the search bar of your Cydia app, and it should come up.
Now just install the app using the install button at the to[p right corner of the tweak page, and wait for the download and install to complete. Now Cydia will ask you to restart your springboard. After the device is rebooted completely, launch your Facebook App on iPhone or iPad. Along with all the configurations of Facebook app, you will also notice the Prenesi settings within the Facebook app. There you can tweak the settings of the tweak and enable or disable all the features of the tweak.
It lets you download Facebook videos in medium quality or of HD quality. After hitting the download button, it asks you to select the quality in which the video should be downloaded.
