You’re scrolling through your feed, and you find a funny video or something rather useful or of interest to you. You want to download it, but unfortunately, there is no such option insight. We’ve all been there, whether you use YouTube, Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, or something else. Most popular websites that host videos don’t provide an option to download said videos. If you want to download a Facebook video, for example, you’ll need a third-party solution. One such solution is VideoDuke, a Mac exclusive video downloader. VideoDuke lets you download Facebook videos with ease, but it also lets you download videos from pretty much every other website.

But that doesn’t matter as long as you have that one app that meets your demands. Can VideoDuke be that one Facebook video downloader for you? Let’s find out.

An app or any other software’s interface should be such that it makes the user’s life easier. Not only should it be nice to look at, but should also allow the user to do what the user needs to do quickly and efficiently. On that front, there’s really not a lot of criticism to do here with VideoDuke. When the app opens you simply have a Safari-esque interface. The URL bar is ready to use, and the rest of the app is dedicated to getting the user started, in case you don’t know how the app works.

This one shows you the input field (URL bar) right in the front. So you can get to download your video as soon as the app is open.
Since the design is so simple, nobody should have any problems understanding how it works. Even so, here’s a short tutorial on how you can download Facebook videos on Mac with VideoDuke.
