If you’re having issues using FBDown, you can also try the Facebook video downloader, which supports the download of both public and private video with just your web-browser.

In case you were curious, the video in this exercise is from one of the startups from my tech incubator in Bolivia, 6BLabs. The product is called OloTouch it allows you to convert any ordinary surface into a smart touch surface by using a projector.

I highly encourage you to check their beta video as the founder plays with a wall. (They are raising a Seed round, hit me up via Linkedin if interested).
