No. 0     Original Topic:  How do you export a vid from FB or post a downloaded vid in a forum post?

The title is the question.

I have a FB video of my new granddaughter I'd like to share, but so far have been unable to share it here. I can download it to my computer, but haven't figured out how to export it here.

Hi Storm

I don't usually do images or videos on here, but the only way I know of is to place your image or video on a server somewhere so you can add a LINK on here to it.

There is an 'Embed YouTube Video' button in the formatting bar above which gives you the proper format for the old style link, and the directions for the new iFrame style link.

If you want to link to a video you placed on Farcebook, make sure you get the direct URL to the video itself, not a post where it was displayed in.

Thanks, Gary. I am very familiar with with the embedding process from Youtube, including the iframe process, but my problem is a video posted on Facebook by my son-in-law directly (presumably) from his smartphone. If there is a URL location, I have not been able to find it, but you've given me an idea - maybe I should ask him about it.
