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 allow an “Outsider” to view your photo albums or videos.

Consider a scenario, you have some video clips on 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 let anyone view your uploaded video. The viewers do not necessarily have to create an account with the site to watch the video clipping.

1. Facebook does not provide 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.
