Facebook uses HTML5 for video now (one can embed flash from other sites though sometimes). If the videos don't play, it's a hardware and or OS issue.
You can go to
opera://media-internalsand ctrl + shift + i and look at the console for errors.

Same here with Opera 36 on XP.
I suspect that it relies on codecs built into the OS that XP just doesn't have. Strange that it isn't falling back to the Flash Player though, which it does on Firefox if the codec isn't available.
Also strange that HTML5 playback on YouTube seems to be working fine, at least for me!
