Advice

  • Video that you upload to an album also appears in an album called Videos. This album only contains links to all the videos you had uploaded to Facebook.
  • Downloading videos via cellular data can be expensive if you don't have an unlimited data plan. It would be a good idea to use a Wi-Fi network when you want to download large files.
