    dloaded....it works...but it is a terribly slow browser...and is jacking up my phone pretty bad lol.



    I think in my case it has something to do with disabling plugins....I switched that to "on demand" and that is about the time that vids stopped playing correctly.

    Will test more tomorrow.

    I know the default browser won't recognize the fb plug-in for videos.

    try dolphinHD browser.

    Okay, anyone else have a fix for this problem? I can't seem to get videos from FB to play, very frustrating!

    Hello world, this issue is still bugging the piss out of me.

    My Evo won't play FB vids nor will my wife's Epic. Solves the question of whether my rom/kernel messed it up...

    I solved this problem by using Skyfire to open my FB account.

    Dolpin doesn't help on my evo because now the videos don't even show up on Facebook. Rockplayer lite works, but the audio doesn`t come in for awhile, so it sucks to. This is pretty ridiculous. I don't remember having this trouble with my crappy rooted Hero.

    Hmmm, the facebook interface through Dolphin didn't allow me to see all the videos I had posted. Not even a mention of them. It was weird. But, as I said, the VPlayer (I used the free trial to check it) worked. I also heard that you might have to uninstall Rockplayer for it to work correctly.
