When I try to save my own posted videos on Facebook back to my iPhone 6, and when I tap "share" it doesn't give me the option to "copy link"?

I have videos that are mine on Facebook which I posted years ago and would like to get them back in my iPhone. When I try to save them back to my iPhone 6, it does not work, because I follow the instructions posted here and when I tap "share" it doesn't give me the option to "copy link"? however if I click on other videos from other people sometimes it does give me that option, however it does NOT give me that option for my own videos and I do not know why or How can I go around that? Step 3 says to tap share and "copy link", well when I tap share on my own posted videos it does not give me that option, it only gives me the option to share now or write post or send in messenger? I have tried: I have tested all the steps posted here and I was able to save videos to my iPhone 6 that DO provide the option to copy link, so these instructions do work for that. However if the video does NOT give you the option to "Copy Link" then what can I do? I think it was caused by: I have no idea, can you guys test this yourself and see that sometimes your own posted videos DO NOT provide the option to copy link, why is that and how can we go around that
