If you are seeing Attachment Unavailable it means that it was shared with friends but not public. If you are not on their friend's list then you will not see it or be able to save it. If you are connected to WiFi, your daughter created the video and you still can't load it then request her to send it again. Once you receive the video, long press on the image from your phone screen and you will see a pop-up appear with a menu and there will be the Save Video option.
