Re: facebook videos problems

I have a 9630 tour and experience the same problem with videos on facebook. You Tube videos should not be a problem. I believe it has to do with the flash player for BB. My research shows BB and Adobe are working to bring Adobe Flash to BB devices..

Thanks for the help,it makes a lot of sense what you say,surely if they make these phones for all this social networking,they would incorporate this function as one can watch you tube videos!

I have finally came across two solutions for the problem. I am currently using the second one since the first one is very cumbersome...

 

1.) If it is your own videos that you want to watch, you need to go to the full facebook website, find the video you want to check out, say post it to my wall, then go the facebook application and click on the video and voila you can watch it...

 

2.) Download Snaptu. Facebook for snaptu is capable of showing all the videos... I have been using snaptu for two days and I still can't figure out why some feeds show up while others don't show on my news feeds page. Anyways, if the video is showing up you can click on it and then either download or watch the video with no problems...

MGary is completely correct in saying it's a Flash player problem.  Facebook videos use Flash, which is not yet supported by BlackBerry phones.  The new PlayBook supports it so we can only assume that it will be a part of BB phones in the near future as well.
