Facebook is undoubtedly the most popular social network that instantly connects you to people from all over the globe. The company has been rolling out new features recently such as Reactions, Messenger chatbots and more. However, one thing that many users wished Facebook had is the ability to download videos. Fortunately, if your jailbroken, you can get this feature with the use of a new jailbreak tweak called FVideo.
FVideo allows users to instantly download any video from the official Facebook app directly to their Camera Roll and view it at any time in offline mode. With the use of this tweak, you no longer have to depend on third-party websites and apps, that are sometimes a hassle to use
Upon installing it, FVideo will get activated by default. Now, launch the Facebook app and find a video which you’d like to download. By tapping and holding on a video, the tweak displays a pop-up asking you to choose the video quality, which can either be HD or SD.
Once you’ve chosen the video quality, a HUD is displayed with the progress of the download. After it completes, the video will be saved to you Camera Roll and you can access it from there and even share it with others.
As you can see, the tweak makes it very easy to download any video from Facebook’s app to your device. It doesn’t require any configuration and gets enabled by default.
The only issue that it has is that every time you hold the playback scrubber to move to a certain time in a video, the tweak will treat is as a tap and hold gesture, thereby displaying the download popup. This makes it difficult to use the scrubber to jump to any part in a video.
Apart from this, it works as advertised and the download performance is quite good. If you’re interested to try this tweak, it is available as a free package on Cydia’s BigBoss repo and requires the latest version of Facebook to be installed.
Currently, you can only jailbreak iOS 9.1 or lower, check our article for the latest update on iOS 9.3.1 – iOS 9.3 jailbreak.
