    I can not seem to watch it with IE or any other stuff. Is there an app or a trick to watch videos on Facebook? Thanks!

    I just tap on the video, opens in IE. There hasn't been one video - facebook or not, that I haven't been able to play.

    I can watch them browsing in IE. There are some videos sources though that won't play. But FB videos and YouTube videos from my Wall play just fine.

    When using IE in desktop mode, many websites with streaming video will try to stream using the RTMP protocol - which is a flash based protocol used in IE on desktops.

    WP8, however, uses HLS (HTTP Live Streaming). Trying to view the video through the FB app, or People Hub, etc, should correctly identify as WP, and stream in HLS.

    Thank you guys! Problem's been solved with your help! XD
    I use IE in desktop mode, so. And I do not use a facebook app because I'm cool with the People hub and the Photos hub.

    I cannot watch videos on facebook either. If someone post a video it will play. But to go to their profile and try to play their videos I cannot even find the video folder. If I use the desktop mode I can find the folder but videos won't play. It says you must update the flash player. When I go to the adobe site there is no player available. Doesn't make sense.
