    Whenever I try to play a video in the Facebook App I get an error "Cannot play video" Won't play videos that I have previously played before the 2.2 update and it won't play the video I posted this morning, though it works fine from my pc on Facebook.

    Any help would be appreciated

    Maybe it is a flash issue. When I right click on the video in Facebook on my pc it comes up with Flash 10 ... so maybe it will be fixed after the new update to the droid...come on update..

    Did you install the Flash player app?

    2.2 does not come with Flash already installed

    Ya I did right after I updated. I can play the videos just fine on my ipod touch facebook app. It seems like there could be something wrong with the droid app.

    I've had the same problem. The only way I found to fix it was to use VPlayer. Then when you click on a video in the Facebook App, it gives you the option to use the stock video player or VPlayer. Choose VPlayer and it should play pretty much all of them.
