    Hi,

    I am using the Facebook App with my droid bionic. When i try to view a video posted to Facebook I get the following error: File cannot be displayed or played.

    You tube linked vidoes work just fine. It seems to be any imbedded vidoes. I think...

    Is there anyway to fix this? I never had a problem on my fascinate. HELP! its driving me crazy that i cant figure it out.

    I have the same problem, even on videos that I have taken with my phone. I take the video, upload them to facebook but get the error message when trying to play them. They play fine in the gallery just not on facebook. Just one more reason I hate myself for buying this phone.

    I'm having this same issue... shouldn't it work without needing a separate video app?

    Every type of video requires a separate app. A pc is the same. In fact, every file format reuires a program that can read it. People have suggested several solutions and still people ignore them. Hilarious.

    Not ignoring, just asking a question. Glad you find it hilarious.

    it would have been better if you had mention the browser, if you are using IE or Firefox, you must install adobe flash player add-on.

    I cannot even get the error message. I cannot get to the video section on my Bionic. I can open up the pic folders, but there is nothing there showing vids.
