How To Embed Facebook Video Off of Facebook

BY Nick Judd | Wednesday, May 5 2010

When I wrote about how Cuéntame is using Facebook to organize around the Arizona immigration laws, I noted that Facebook doesn't expose embed code for videos the way YouTube does.

After the post went up, Cuéntame's Axel Caballero, wrote to me — on Facebook — to let me know that he added the embed code for a video of the May Day protest into the text of the video's description.

If you're curious, here's one way to embed Facebook video off of Facebook.

UPDATE: Caballero clarifies that as with administrators of other Facebook pages, he has access to that embed code for each video uploaded to pages he administers. Facebook just doesn't share it with people who don't run that page.
