Why Can't Play Videos From Facebook In Safari

I'm having no trouble playing videos from Facebook on my iP4 running IOS 4.3.Now that that is out of the way, why can't I play videos from Facebook in Safari on the iPad? It has worked in the past, but I can't figure out why it isn't working now. I thought updating to IOS 4.3 might help things, but it made no difference. I get a still image, but no play controls. I tried turning off the pop-up blocker, but that made no difference. I tried clearing the cache, clearing the cookies, rebooting, etc., etc. all to no avail.

Safari :: Uploading Videos To Facebook?
I use Friendly for Facebook, and cannot find a way within that app to upload a video from my iPad2. I tried going to Facebook using Safari, but that won't let me upload either. I just want to post a video of my daughters' Birthday, for family back home.

Unable To Watch Any Videos On Facebook Through Safari
2 days ago I suddenly was unable to watch any of the videos on Facebook, when accessing FB thro Safari. Prior to this I was able to watch these videos. The video is either black or says I need flash player, 2 days ago I could watch these same videos. I can see the videos on the FB app on my Ipad 1. But then I'm not able to quickly locate a video I've posted, as videos are not listed on my photo page, I have to scroll through my or a friend's timeline to locate the video I wanted to watch again. I've turned the Ipad off and on, and have restarted safari, but no luck.

Safari Videos Play Out To TV
I don't know if this has been documented or not but apparently any video that will play in Safari will play out to your TV. I discovered this by accident. I was using the YouTube app (connected to my TV) to play some videos and couldn't find a particular video. I then launched Safari and did a video search there and found the video I wanted posted on dailymotion. Well I was quite surprised to find the video playing on my TV. I've since tried many other video sites as well as stored video files on sites/servers and if they were playable in Safari, they played out to the TV.

I just thought some users might find this info helpful.

IPad 2 :: Youtube Videos Don't Play On Safari
Up until a couple of days ago, i could play videos on youtube both on the actual original ipad Youtube app that it comes with on your homescreen and as the regular website which you visit on your browser on [URL] I don't know if it's just me, but i prefer just using safari and then going to youtube. Now for some reason, when i use safari and go to youtube, the homepage screen displays fine, but as soon as you try to tap on the play button, the display screen (not the whole screen) turns blank and you can only hear the audio play and only the bottom half comments and description window is all you see, but the actual vid doesn't play and stays blank. Now if i use the actual youtube app on the homescreen, it works fine. The youtube website version doesn't play videos. This is so weird and is a nuisance.

IPad 3 Says ‘no Facebook Account Registered’ While Uploading Photos Or Videos Into Facebook
Every time, I try to upload either photos or videos from iPhoto or Camera Roll in my iPad 3 running on IOS 6 to Facebook, it says “there is no facebook account and you need to register your account after going to settings page”. Facebook used to load into my iPad and I have checked my account through it. Therefore, I am sure that my iPad do recognize my facebook account. In what way can I make my iPad upload the photos or videos successfully?

Unable To View Facebook Posts - Safari Crashing On Facebook Pages
I have noticed that Safari on my iPad will crash out while I am checking my Facebook. It usually happens when I reach posts that are about 12-14 hours old. I tried clearing my cache (thinking that might be responsible), but it didn't seem to help. Is it possible that I am running into some sort of wall as far as Safari's buffer is concerned? Anyone else having a similar problem?

I use the mobile version on my iPhone but times it can be buggy and some features do not work. I would rather use Facebook via Safari than via the app but will really know in 3 weeks.

Music Videos Do Not Play As Videos Just Still Images
For some reason the music videos do not play as videos, but rather just display a still image from some random frame that was captured. The iPhone iPod app plays the video when it get to a video. Is there some setting in the iPad that I am missing to get this to function correctly?

Facebook Video Won't Play?
I recently bought an iPad 2, main purpose to watch videos and surfing net on it. Either from Facebook/YouTube etc. YouTube video works fine for me, however Facebook video doesn't. Whenever I go to the video page, there are no control whatsoever on the video, even after I refresh many times.

I had actually found a way to play the video which is to click on "View in Regular Quality", where a play button will appear on the video somehow, and then clicking on the HD button on the bottom-right corner, BUT, I can't make it full screen(no full-screen icon) which is really annoying.

I own a iPhone 4 too, which plays Facebook video without any problems. It will auto go into full screen when I press the play button, but somehow iPad don't!

The ad tells that you "can post Videos to Facebook".

I am Looking for that Feature in the YT App but all I can find is the Button that initiates an Email containing the link.

Did Appl missed something or do they really sell the Facebook-post-feature meaning to use an email to your FB profile....? Can't be...

Safari Defaulting To Mobile Facebook
Every time I have visited Facebook it has always been the desktop version. Recently, it always pulls up the ugly mobile version and it's really annoying! I have tried clearing my cache and nothing is helping. Has this happened to anyone else?Note: I realize that the app store browsers would show it fine but I prefer the safari browser at this point because of it's bookmark bar.

Unable To Load Facebook In Safari?
So I was at Best Buy today and I was using Safari to login to my facebook account because I wanted to see if I would be able to chat like I could on a normal computer. I was sad to see that the chat function was not loading in Safari when I loaded the page. All other features were working.

When I asked one of the employees if the chat function worked somehow in the browser while logged in, she said that I would need to go into the facebook app to be able to chat.

That stinks. The facebook app isn't that great. Why doesn't the chat feature work in the browser like a regular computer? If I could get that to work, I think I would pick up the iPad.
