To save a facebook live stream (or any video hosted by them) -

right-click on the video and get the 'video url'
paste into address bar, swapping www for m
start the video to get past the preview image
right click and save.

... is working (using \ to say 'pass those & characters rather than treating them as special' to bash).

(Have saved using above method but not watched yet...)

It's worth it, even if the camera angle means we need to wait for the presentation file to be uploaded to have a chance of seeing what was on the screen.
