How to Share Facebook Videos With People Not on Facebook
You can upload videos in your Facebook profile and share that video with your Facebook friends quite easily. But this is not the case when you want to share the same video with people not on Facebook. This is because Facebook does not allows an “Outsider” to view your photo albums or videos.
Consider a scenario, you have some video clips in your computer and you want to share them with your online friends. In that case, it would be better to choose YouTube or other video sharing sites because these sites lets anyone view your uploaded video. The viewers do not necessarily have to create an account with the site to watch the video clipping.
Sharing videos from Facebook is problematic due to the following two reasons:
1. Facebook does not provides any embed code for your uploaded video. You can’t embed a Facebook video in your blog or website (legally).
2. Facebook does not provide a publicly accessible URL of a video.
Share Facebook Videos With people Not on Facebook
Whenever you come across an interesting video on Facebook and want to share it, click the video link to go to the video page.
The URL will be www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=XXX ( XXX is the Video ID).
Now, pastewww.facebook.com/v/XXX in the browser address bar and the SWF video file will load in the browser.
To share the video with anyone who does not have a Facebook account, all you have to do is email him the modified link – www.facebook.com/v/XXX
Embed Facebook Videos in a Webpage
To embed a Facebook video in your website, blog posts or in any webpage simply copy the Video ID and replace with XXX in the following code:
<param name=”allowfullscreen” value=”true” />
<param name=”allowscriptaccess” value=”always” />
<param name=”movie” value=”http://www.facebook.com/v/xxx” />
<embed src=”http://www.facebook.com/v/xxx” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash”
allowscriptaccess=”always” allowfullscreen=”true” width=”400″ height=”224″>

Method #1: Copy Facebook Video URL
This is possible to share a Facebook video with anyone not on Facebook if you can copy the URL of the video. If the uploader has made the video public, you can certainly share the video with everyone not on Facebook. You can send the video URL via email, text message, WhatsApp, etc. This is quite easy to copy the Facebook video URL and there is no need to use any third-party tool for that. The following steps need to be followed on a computer to copy Facebook video link.
At first, find a video you want to share. You need to hit the Play and Pause button one after one. After that, right-click on the video and select Show Video URL option.
You should find the URL in a box. Following that, you can select the whole URL and copy that in your notepad. Later on, you know what you need to do to share the URL with all the people not on Facebook.
The drawback of this method is the recipient needs to open Facebook to get the video. However, if you can download the video and send it on WhatsApp or anywhere else, the recipient doesn’t need to open Facebook. Instead, he/she can watch the video directly.
