Facebook App video links will not display when played.

Question: Facebook App video links will not display when played.

I am using the Facebook app from the Microsoft store. When I browse through the news feed or home page, whatever it is called, the posts that have a video attached, scroll up and as they start to appear on the screen I see the image clearly, but then when the whole window is on the page, it is just a black screen. I have audio and if I move the mouse around a little sometimes I see a flicker of the video. If I enlarge it nothing changes except the size of the black square. When I scroll further down and this video now exits of the screen at the top of the page and half of the window is gone, the video is now partially visible again.
I have updated every driver on my system, using "Driver Easy", one of the first to actually work I must say. Anyhow my system starts way faster and runs much better, but nothing helps the video playing issue.
Outside of the Facebook App, there is no problem and even to the point of launching Facebook in a browser, when I follow the same tasks, I can actually see the videos running. It would however be good if I can solve the App issue as I find it more convenient and there are a few benefits to it over the browser version.
If anyone has an answer as to why this issue is occurring and a remedy, I would appreciate it.

Preferred Solution: Facebook App video links will not display when played.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Does anybody have a solution to this Facebook problem please?
When I post a link on my FB page, say to a video, it used to produce a thumbnail photo - which went live when I hit the 'post' button.
But suddenly when I post the link the loading bar signal on the right above keeps loading but never finishes to produce the thumbnail.
I've googled the problem and some suggest some link debugging site which doesn't work for me.
Has anybody else solved this one?

When I receive emails such as from Facebook that contain web links, I click on the link and it opens the browser. I have an app for Facebook installed so would like to it use that instead. The same thing applies for YouTube links - I would like it to open the MyTube app. Can this be done? If so, how?

I purchased a hp pavillion laptop 15 e026 ax with AMD A10 4600 APU, 8gb RAM, 1 tb hdd, AMD radeon HD 7660G+8600M in march 2014 and I am using Windows 8 (64 bit) with it. Everything was fine until a week ago I noticed that while playing a video file in VLC and KM Player, sometimes the video freezes at a frame but the audio keeps playing just fine. The frame remains frozen until any key on the keyboard is pressed or the mouse-button is clicked. This is a very irritating problem. Can anyone please help me solve this problem.

I have a customer that brought in a DVD-RW and said it wont play in his DVD player but it will play in others. His DVD player DOES support DVD-RW discs. Anyway I am going to burn it on a DVD-R for him. I copied the disc to my hard drive and noticed the video was in the “VRO” format. The video file is listed as a “VRO file”. What is a VRF file and more importantly how do I convert it into a file that can be played in a normal DVD player? I have the latest version of Nero. I choose “make a DVD video” in the projects category and I imported the file. It shows every chapter in the file and it pictures of the video at the beginning of the file. But when I play the file through the video viewing program in Nero, I get no video. But if I play it in Windows Media Player, it plays fine.Moderator Edit: Moved topic to more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I believe I have a rootkit virus. Telling by the other posts here this seems to be sort of epidemic. All of this began when a bogus Anti-Malware program called "Windows Recovery" took over my computer. The background even turned black. I ran rkiller and scanned with Malwarebytes but it found nothing. After doing a system restore the program was gone but the symptoms persisted. -Since then my search engine results (Google, Bing) redirects to unrelated adware sites when I click on them. - shortly after starting firefox, my computer speakers will play commercials (audio-only), even when the only application I have open is one firefox window and it's on a simple page like Google's home page.- I get periodic warning windows titled "Internet Explorer Script Error" even when the only application running is firefox and it's sitting idly on Google or another site.

Hey guys, hope you can help me out with a prob i'm having (and it's annoying as hell).

My PC overheated (60 C) a few weeks ago. Fans were clogged, so I cleaned it up nice and good and temp dropped to 49-53. Which is fine since I use a generic fan/heatsink.

But since then I've been getting this video problem, anytime i try to play video, no matter what format (DVD, mpg, avi, online streaming videos), my PC will definitely hang, but you just don't know when. Kinda like the longer you play a video, the higher the chance of my PC hanging. It happens with some games too, I tried playing Divine Divinity (which relies heavily on DirectX), it hangs most of the time.

I've formatted countless times, and it's still like this, so I think one of my hardware is screwed up a bit (from the overheating perhaps, or it's just its time).

I was thinking maybe DirectX or DetonatorXP problem, tried changing versions, no help. BTW dxdiag sez nothing is wrong, except if I try to change the "music" port to something other than the default (first in the list).

I've had this prob for quite a while now, coupla weeks, a little over a month, BUT yesterday I discovered that if I try to use internet phone, it hangs as well. So not just video anymore for god's sake. Also, when it hangs/freezes, there's always a high pitched sound, like someone flatlined.

Answer:PC hangs when video is played.

Welcome to TechSpot

Check that your graphics card is properly seated. If there is a fan on it, make sure it works.
Remove and reseat the memory as well while you're at it.
As you had a lot of dust on your CPU-fan, take a good look at the Powersupply's fan and clean it if needed. This might be the "whiner".
What are your PSU's brand, model and output and how old is it?

Hi guys,I just recently clean installed windows 7 on a machine I built myself and now every time I play videos on the web on full screen I get crackles from the sound. Youtube crackles a little bit when opening a video into fullscreen and then quitens down when I stop moving the mouse but other sites with video crackle all the time, like 40d or any other video streaming sites. Even windows media player crackles when I'm playing music with visualizations in full screen or small screen. Watching videos in vlc though do not give crackles in full screen or small screen. I have tried updating my graphics card which is a  Nvidia GeForce 8400s updating the sound from the built in motherboard (ASUS P5b-vm se) but still nothing. Sound was working fine until I clean installed windows 7. I've checked all the cables many times but I still can't figure it out, any suggestions?Thanks

Hi y'all. Yesterday I had a weird problem with an .avi video I was watching. It is about 40 minutes long, and played fine until it hit the 28:12 mark, at which point the player froze. At first, I was able to tab out to a different window, but after a few seconds the computer became completely unresponsive. I was forced to reboot the old fashioned way; startup went to scandisk because "one of your disks needs to be checked for consistency." However, no errors were found. I booted into safe mode and attempted to play the video, and the same thing happened (the first time this computer has ever frozen while in safe mode!). Rebooted into safe mode again, no scandisk this time, tried to delete the file using Eraser, and after the first pass, the computer froze again. Booted yet again into safe mode (again, no scandisk), and I ran full scans with Spybot Search & Destroy, MalwareBytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials; all scans were clear.

I was wondering if y'all had any idea what's going on.

I am using Media Player Classic

There must be a way to finalise a Video DVD burn in windows 10 but I can't find it.
Any help would be appreciated thanks

Answer:Finalizing a Video DVD so it can be played on other computers

Hi there peterpotus and welcome to Ten Forums!
As I understand it finalising a DVD means it can be played on other devices such as DVD players and other computers.

This thread may be of some use to you Close/Finalize DVD Disc.

Windows DVD maker also may be helpful but can only be used if you have a computer running Windows 7.

I could suggest for you to look closely in the tool bar options for burn/format while exploring the DVD. What program did you use to create the DVD in? Is there a option to finalise using that program?

I have heard that ImgBurn has an option for finalising DVD's so you could give that a whril too .

Hi recently I"ve converted a few videos with formatfactory and handbrake into .mp4 (ipad optimized) format. However, these videos when played in Wmp 12, the video and audio goes off sync with like a 1-3 sec delay depending on the video.

All my vids are converted with similar info as the original video, such as I keep the same fps, same audio sample rate and audio bitrate. Only thing I changed is format type, bitrate and dimensions. For example since a 10k+ bitrate video takes WAY too much unncessary space, I usually set it to 3-5k instead of the regular 10-20k for .ts files. In an earlier thread, someone told me that bitrate doesn't affect audio/video sync, but rather the quality of the overall video instead.

Now I've also tried using VLC player and MPC (media player classic) to play these "off sync" videos, but they were in perfect sync. So my question is, is this video/audio off sync issue a WMP issue or is the issue with the converted video? Does VLC and MPC have a tendency to "speed up" videos so that it doesn't go off-sync, or is it since they use less memory they are able to play videos better than WMP (which uses way more memory than VLC or MPC)?

Any sort of help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Hi there,
I have an issue with my XPS 15 (9550): when I read video files (for example mp4, avi, flv) with both Windows Media Player and MPC-HC, the colors are totaly saturated. 

I observed that:
-when I read these files with the defaut windows 10 player, colors are fine. Good, but this player do not read flv files for example
-when I desactivate the Intel HD 530 graphic card (and thus use the Nvidia card instead), the colors are fine too. Good again, but I cannot run always the Nvidia card, first because I often need to save the battery and secondly because its display is not good in normal office usage. 

On the left: MP4 file read with the windows 10 default player. On the right, the same file read with Windows Media Player (installed with the K-Lite codec pakage). See the difference in the sky color notably.

So the issue is around the Intel HD 530 I suppose.... So:
-I have undated the HD 530 driver, but the issue is still there.
-I have uninstalled the codec pakage (k-Lite), still the same issue.
-I have reinstalled the codec pakage: not better.
-Just in case, I have checked that I have all Windows 10 latest update. Yes I have, but the issue still appears.
-I jave also tried to uninstall Dell Premier Color, but no difference. 

I am not sure what I can still do... Any idea ?
Many thanks

Hi, I'm having a problem wherein my browser either fails to link to sites (mostly) or my search results will send me to pages of sponsored links. I'm running XP and this first started happening with Internet Explorer.

I got some message (sorry I can't quote it verbatim) telling me I could be infected with something. I immediately started running my Ad-Aware, SpyBot, CCleaner. They all said they found potentially dangerous things and took care of them, or so I thought.

Pressed for time, I just started using Firefox, which worked for a while, but it would eventally do the same thing. So, I'd run the programs again, and start all over again.

Today, I have time to finally try to post a Hijack This log. I started following the directions and, using Internet Explorer, cannot get to the site to download DDS. It says "cannot display the page". Running a connection check turns up no problems. I tried Firefox, and it's giving me a message that Firefox is already running--which it isn't.

I've now re-started my computer for about the 10th time today and need some advice. Please, oh generous and knowledgable people, help me... Thanks.

P.S. I also find that Internet Explorer can't get to my email (Comcast) or some other sites I frequent, unless I go into the history and find the page. When I click that, it works.

I had a DRM bug and to fix it, I did a complete full format of the harddrive and a clean install of windows XP home SP2. now when i play any file that happens to be stored on my harddrive (DRM or not, not matter what file type AVI, Mpg, WMV), all videos are darker and have a redish tint to them, no matter if i play them in winamp, VLC, or WMP.

All drivers are fresh, and my Nvidia 6800 is using the latest of Nvidia's own drivers. Videos online streaming are clear and how they should be, IE.. youtube, myspace, etc...

The basic codecs are here, Divx, VLC, and whatever WMP happens to load.

Could this just be some setting that I overlooked? How can I fix this video problem?

If every driver is new, try using an older driver, also i would get a new codec pack. I use ace mega codec pack.

Hi all,

Every time I try to play a video on steam my pc crashes. I think the error is related to hal.dll but I'm not sure. I have install a fresh copy of windows and update all the drivers (including BIOS) but the problem still exists. I have also check the CPU temperature using prime95.
I am starting to suspect a hardware issue but I don't want to change something before I'm sure. Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:BSOD caused by video played on Steam

Had a scan through your dumps and they are all 0x124 errors which relates to hardware complaining and causing the crash
Unfortunately the error output of them all is "Internal unclassified" so as with most 124 errors there is no way to tell a finite cause

Have a read through this thread and try the suggestions Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

Your error could be caused by anything from a bad driver or bad overclock to an actual hardware fault, unfortunately its pretty much a case of trial and error to rule out as many possibilities as you can

Hi. I've put this here because I think it is possible a network thing rather than my computer. But I could be wrong.

I'm on a PC with XP spk3 and my broadband speed is 30+ Mb.

In any browser, if I go to Vimeo, Youtube etc and watch higher quality vids I get terrible stuttering of picture and sound, really bad crackling and warbling and drop outs.

But, if I download the same vids, they play fine on my computer.

I've updated everything I can think of and there is no improvement.

My machine is old and slow but this problem started just the other day and it was bad from the start. It didn't gradually creep up.

I'm at a loss. Can anybody make some suggestions?

I can email a small MP3 of the sound if it helps.

Thanks, Colin.

Answer:Stuttering video in browser but fine played locally

It could be your speed/connection with your ISP. Check your speeds at both and for comparisons

I think ive added all the Info that was Requested to assist me with my Issue, I can play games with No issues but whenever i try to play a Online Video or today i noticed that DVDs played via my player are BSOD'ing me also. Its not the typical Blue screen that i remember from back in the 98/xp days, The Screen is completely Blue.. No Errors Given and the only option is to Hard Boot the System. Thanks in Advance for any and All help.

Answer:Blue Screen Anytime a Video is attempted to be Played.

No DMPs included in the upload. Try this method.
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

If you are overclocking STOP

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

I have Windows XP, and Media Player 11. My question is, how to permanently delete the last played video on Media Player. I watched a video clip from an internet site using Media Player. Now, everytime I open Media Player, the same video is there. I have clicked on "remove from list", but when I close and reopen Media Player, the video will be back. I have tried searching the hard drive for the video clip to try to permanently delete the link to the website, but the search always comes up zilch. I realize now that clicking "remove from list" only removes the name of the file, not the file itself. I have posted this question on the Microsoft discussion forum, but have not gotten any helpful answers. Please help!

Every time I try to play game or watch a video, either from the internet or downloaded, it freezes my entire computer and I have to do a hard restart. This also happens when any kind of flash plays on a website for more than like 10 seconds. It's been going on for near 6 months now and it's driving me absolutely mad! I have updated everything that I can think of including flash player, chipset driver, video driver, firefox, and even reinstalled windows and nothing works. I've tried disabling hardware acceleration to no avail. I've run virus and malware scans and they came up with nothing. Any help with this would be enormously appreciated.

Recently, for no apparent reason, my avi and MPEG video files in Vista stopped playing audio. I first noticed it in Ulead VS11, I then tried to play them in Windows Media Player and DivX player and still no sound.

When you play them in Windows Media Player, it tells you there is a codec missing (C00D10D1) but I am sent on a wild goose chase. I have tried installing K-Lite and the Windows Vista Codec Pack but neither solve the problem.

All these files played fine with audio up until recently and I can still play MP3 and Windows system sounds and DVDs. I have also recently learned that both Quicktime and Winamp will play them with sound and if I go over to my wife's profile, they play fine there on Windows Media Player.

I used GSpot to identify a problem but all it says is that it uses PCM Audio and no Codec is necessary.

Going back to Ulead Video Studio 11 - I found that when playing the entire Project (as opposed to just the video clip) I also hear sound.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi everyone,I'm new to this board. My problem is as I posted on the topic. My thinkpad T61 can not be able to play any flash based video in full screen mode. Actually, it's able to run fullscreen for short period of time, e.g., when I watch youtube video on browser page of youtube website in small window, it runs fine without any problem but if I change to full screen mode, fullscreen mode video playback stays for a while sometimes 10 secs, 30 secs (not anytime I can watch it over 1 minites) after that it automatically switches back to normal small window video playback.I did several google the problem online, but all the solutions people posted online didn't work on my machine. I updated Adobe flash player plugin to the latest version and all video card driver and directx is up to date (I have NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M installed.) The other solution that I tried is right click on youtube clip video to get flash player option poped up and unchecked "unable hardware acceleration" option but the problem still exist.P.S. I just received my laptop at the end of last month since I order online and start using it since then (22 days now, everything is still manufacture set up.)If anyone has a solution or some recommendation so please help.Many Thanks,SS

The content in the center of the page is constantly moving up and down slightly.

I've managed to decipher an address showing at the bottom of the page. It's looking like the pages are constantly trying to refresh or something. This has started last night. And, as a side note, I never go to, nor have a Facebook account...

Here's the address flashing for a fraction of a second:

Curiously, it's related to Facebook!!! What the heck is that doing on a Microsoft website? I do see a little Facebook icon on the pages with this problem but this hasn't happened on TSG... Everything but the Facebook links is moving. Facebook is not moving!?!

- Clearing Cookies, Temporary Internet Files, History.

- Disabled antivirus and firewall.

- Changed back my DNS settings (from Google Puclic DNS).

- Ran IE without the Add-ons.

- Made sure Java was updated.

I can't actually see the SPAM messages I'm sending out (to groups of 6 friends at a time) via Facebook at all, but I get email notifications in Gmail that contain any message I send (which gets labelled, marked as read and archived, so I have a record of these things).

Are you using Internet Explorer? Do you have the status bar showing at the bottom of the screen? In the lower right corner there should be a percentage - it should be set to 100%. If it's higher than that, that is why the display is too large for the screen.If you don't have the status bar showing, right click in the blank space next to the tabs, then put a check next to "Status Bar", then you can adjust the percentage.

On every one of my friend's wall, if I use Firefox, it shows her wall post, then it says Recent Stories, which is a repeat of what I just viewed a few seconds ago. So essentially, the same post is repeated less than few inch down on the wall display

But by viewing the same wall(s) using Chrome, Chrome does not display Recent Stories, so I didn't see the repeated post.

Is there a way to fix this?

For some reason Myspace and Facebook pictures won't display on my computer. In Facebook, the pictures come up gray and in Myspace, I get the same icon users have as if they never uploaded a picture at all. This is not only happening to my profile picture but EVERYONES. This is occuring on every browser I have installed: IE, Firefox, and Opera. It is only occuring on this computer. I have resarted multiple times (it's been occuring for the last month). I have cleared the cache. I made sure that nothing is blocking it in Trusted Zones. Something is blocking these images from coming through. Any suggestions?


Here's a screen shot:

UPDATE: My coworker is experiencing the same symptoms on his machine? I know IT can block certain sites but is it possible to block profile pictures in certain sites? Is this a server side issue?

Answer:Why won't Facebook & Myspace profile pictures display in any browser on this computer

Check and make sure you have image display enabled on your web browser.

Answer:Video on facebook cannot play !

There is nothing wrong with Flash Player or anything else. The "problem" is in Facebook. So as the title says, the video is removed from Facebook, or you can't see it because the privacy of that video not allow you.

Noticed this today

If you see this video on your profile, remove it, if you receive it from someone, dont accept it, its malicious! Not sure what it does yet but its not good. I added a screenshot of the warnings from AVG and its NOT a false positive. The video is called Candid Camera Prank [HQ] (Your Name) this is without doubt the sexiest video ever! :P :P :P

Answer:Facebook Video Infection

Huge 'Sexiest Video Ever' Attack Hits Facebook

When it comes to viruses and such, we normally don?t worry about you guys, we simply pass the news along so you can warn friends and family. With that said, it is a totally different story when an attack uses the lure of "teh boobies"?I worry about all of us falling for it.

On Saturday, AVG Technologies received more than 300,000 reports of the malicious Facebook app, said Roger Thompson, AVG's chief research officer. AVG came up with its tally by counting the number of reports from its LinkScanner software, a free browser add-on that detects potentially poisoned pages.
