Problem with Facebook videos

  • @killiahn I have the exact same issue with all my other browsers as well - the video is just stuck on pause.. Have you found a solution to this problem by any chance? Thanks in advance.

  • Welcome to Opera's forums @Maxibucks!

    You may need to try to clean the cache in every browser, with cCleaner you can do it for all at once.
    Clean site cookies may be needed too.

  • I just did a check on other laptops (PC and Mac). The error is not coming from the computer, it's coming from facebook itself. Videos are working as they should with other accounts, but not on mine. Have contacted facebook support now.

    Zalex, this shows it might be non-browser related. Meaning there might be something wrong with plugins/players. As long as Opera, for instance, they say relies on system players...

  • Tried on Opera Private with my account, video also can't fast forward, clear temp/cache won't help. On another pc same issue too. (clear browser cache windows temp won't help at all)

    login wife Facebook account, video no problem fast forward/backward.

    BUT...facebook video play, click pause then drag fast forward/backward nav bar, click play again it wouldn't stuck.

    Also, opera on android 6 my facebook account video fast forward/backward no problem.

    I thought it was a problem with a a cookie with his user because it was wrong in every browser, but now it seems it's a Facebook problem with his account.

  • Any recent setting change in your account?

  • Never tried "fast" or whatever on Facebook - there isn't enough length in those videos.

    Zalex might be right, if I didn't improperly misunderstand about the account😉
    Meaning if it's only and exclusively on Facebook, but everywhere on your system, the problem might lie in their player or its rendering sitewise. Unless it's in your system*;)*

  • In another account (same machine) videos works fine, so let's wait if MZ fixes the problem. :rolleyes: :wait:

  • Having the same problem with Opera for about a month or so. Today, I decided to try it on Internet Explorer 11, Firefox, and Chrome too. Same thing. Sounds like it is on Facebook end. I'm using Window 7.
