  • @jombi That video plays for me (on Windows 10) so not a user agent problem.
    Some things to check are mentioned in this thread -

    @jombi Are you only experiencing video playback issues on Facebook or on other sites as well? Also, what is the nature of the problem? Does the video not load at all or are there problems during playback?

    It plays on my Mac and I'm normally able to reproduce problems that others report.



  • Many times, Facebook videos won't play may be caused by the page or the browser stop responding. The simplest solution is to refresh or re-open the browser. Or, many video playback problems are related to Adobe Flash Player, so be sure to update to the latest version. Ahhh, I remembered I had read a tutorial. It is talking about how to use different methods to fix the problem of facebook video not playing. You can type "WonderFox Facebook Videos Not Playing" to find this tutorial. God bless you



  • If I recall right videos on Facebook use Flash Player.
